Abstract

Solid matter is the very embodiment of permanence. In most aspects in every-day life this permanence is also a deciding factor dominating the choice of used materials: you want your can opener to cut the can without being affected, you want your bicycle to still work after being left in the rain, your house to withstand a storm, and the tungsten filament in your light bulb should survive temperatures of even thousands of degrees.
