He also believed that it wasn’t an element like water, fire and air.
In a sense he was correct as we today known that we don’t observe the primary substance anywhere in the world.4- Phythagoras is said to have maintained that all things are numbers, and numbers are ideas and ideas are immaterial. Therefore all things are immaterial, everything is composed by numbers.
