Anaxagoras (ca. 500_428 B.C.) he postulated an infinite number of elements (seeds) from which everything is made.

He believed that everything contains all the elements and that a thing's identity is determined by which elements predominate. An exception is the mind, which contains no other element but may combine with other elements, thereby creating life.
