Synonyms and Greek[edit]

This edit on August 5 2011 made several changes regarding Greek etymology, linking "τὸ πᾶν" to "Pan (mythology)" (incorrect, Pan is likely derived from πάειν), linking to "The All" an article on the Hermetic view of God (non-classic), saying "τὸ ὅλον" is matter (actually it means the whole and matter or wood is ὕλη), saying "τὸ κενόν" is place (unusual, the first meaning of the word κενός is "empty"), and adding transliterations that don't match the Greek. But even the original wording was poor -- Liddell + Scott does not say φύσις means universe, see http://lsj.translatum.gr/wiki/φύσις, or that τὸ πᾶν was the most common term. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Peter Gulutzan (talkcontribs) 19:39, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 2 external links on Universe. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).
