comment When did polygamy start becoming illegal?
I must dispute this answer. I recently had a conversation with the two wives of a neighbour. Points #3 (Human Nature) and #4 (Economics) are in contradiction to their experience as they shared with me. Though the first wife was initially jealous of the second wife, but they became friendly after a few years. The living conditions were never uncomfortable as both women (and children) lived in separate houses on the same land. Additionally, the husband is dirt-dirt-poor, so economics is not a factor.

I found the Wikipedia link to [Air (Classical Element)[en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_%28classical_element%29] from your Empedocles link. That is about as close to an answer as I expect to come, so I'm accepting this answer. Thank you!

comment When did we discover air?
Thank you. In fact, in English it is translated to 'air' but in Hebrew it is translated to 'wind'. If someone could read the original Byz then I would be interested in hearing their comments.
