Russell also observes that both sides were mistaken in believing that there can be no motion in a plenum, but arguably motion cannot start in a plenum.Cyril Bailey notes that Leucippus is the first to say that a "thing" (the void) might be real without being a body and points out the irony that this comes from a materialistic atomist.This is done on the grounds that evil is the opposite of good, a quality of God, but God can have no opposite, since God is everything in the pantheist view of the world.

In this scenario, space is not "nothing" but, rather, a receptacle in which objects of matter can be placed.

The true void (as "nothing") is different from "space" and is removed from consideration.

This phenomenon being known as the Torricelli vacuum and the unit of vacuum pressure, the torr, being named after him.

Even Torricelli's teacher, the famous Galileo Galilei had previously been unable to adequately explain the sucking action of a pump. 815–877) held many surprisingly heretical beliefs for the time he lived in for which no action appears ever to have been taken against him.

Aristotle gives Parmenides serious consideration but concludes; "Although these opinions seem to follow logically in a dialectical discussion, yet to believe them seems next door to madness when one considers the facts." Leucippus (early 5th century BC), one of the atomists, along with other philosophers of his time, made attempts to reconcile this monism with the everyday observation of motion and change. On the other hand, there exists something known as an absolute plenum, a space filled with matter, and there can be no motion in a plenum because it is completely full.

He accepted the monist position that there could be no motion without a void. But, there is not just one monolithic plenum, for existence consists of a multiplicity of plenums.

His ideas mostly stem from, or are based on his work of translating pseudo-Dionysius.

His beliefs are essentially pantheist and he classifies evil, amongst many other things, into not-being.

Although Descartes views on this were challenged by Blaise Pascal, he declined to overturn the traditional belief, commonly stated in the form "Nature abhors a vacuum".
