Aristotle, in his treatise 'On the Heavens', discussed in books I-II the problem of universe's indestructibility from philosophical point of view. He put forward following arguments: a body in which no change is perceived has no disposition for the change and persists continuously in the same state. The cause of bodies' perpetuity is an actualised by form a potentiality as a matter. Thus, everything what is always indestructible and ingenerated exists directly and is a being.
