halfe theire diameter Vacuum will then come betwixt if nothing else can, & no matter will come betwixt since the diameter of the least particle will be as big againe as that space. As thus suppose two globes were to come together they must pas through all the intermediate degrees of distance before they can be joyned suppose they then be distant but halfe the breadth of the least particle of matter there can be no matter betwixt them since all matter is too big to interpose it self. Neither can the two globes touch for that implyes that semidiameter of the least attome hath no breadth but had it not breadth the diameter could have none & so the least particles of matter would be Mathematicall points. therefore A vacuum must interpose. Vnles you say those attomes are as far divided as they ar divisible that there are least parts of matter is proved in the chapter of attomes.
