Aristotle unequivocally recorded Thales's hypothesis on the nature of matter, and proffered a number of conjectures based on observation in favour of Thales's declaration ( 983 b20-28).
Thales would have been familiar with Homer's acknowledgements of divine progenitors but he never attributed organization or control of the cosmos to the gods.
Miletus stood on the Gulf of Lade through which the Maeander river emptied its waters.

He declared: 'Besides this, another reason for the supposition would be that the semina of all things have a moist nature . The understanding that water could generate into earth is basic to Thales's watery thesis.
