“It necessarily follows that circular movement, being unnatural to these bodies, is the natural movement of some other. Further, if, on the one hand, circular movement is natural to something, it must surely be some simple and primary body which is ordained to move with a natural circular motion, as fire is ordained to fly up and earth down.”
— Aristotle, On the Heavens, Book I, paragraph 2, 350 BC.

At the very beginning, there is earth, water and fire. Then comes air, colorless, invisible to all senses, subtle alliance between fire and light, and direct environment to the celestial sphere sheltering us. For Aristotle, ether is an etheric body, more ethereal than air and denser than matter: the quintessence of universe at its climax. Mythological God in Ancient Greece and master of the stellar forces and their brightness, Aether—whilst constantly in motion—is pure and “all its beings are divine.” (Diogène Laërce, VIII, 26, p.3 - traduction de P. Festugière).
