G. earth and water have weight, as even they would say,81 then if a point has no weight it is clear that lines won’t have weight either; and if they don’t neither will planes, so that neither will any bodies. But it is evident that a point cannot have weight, since everything which is heavy can also be heavier than something and everything which is light can also be lighter than something. But it is perhaps not necessary that what is heavier or lighter be heavy or light. ] But a point is assumed to be indivisible.
