  11. 11. The Four Elements The ancient Greeks believed that everything was composed of a mixture of just four ‘elements’ – earth, air, water and fire. This is not quite as silly as it might at first sound; the world is composed of matter in various ‘states’ - solid, liquid and gas and plasma - a type of very hot high energy gas. The Greeks had in effect divided all matter into the four basic categories which we now called solids, gases, liquids and plasma. Earth – (solids) Air – (gases) Water – (liquids) Fire – (plasma) Solid Gas Liquid
