On the other hand, many evolutionists ignore the certainty that there must be a continuum in any real evolutionary process.
With reference to all such further refinements of theory, it is to be borne in mind that the perfect fluid of hydrodynamic analysis is not a merely passive inert plenum; it is also a continuum with the property that no finite internal slip or discontinuity of motion can ever arise in it through any kind of disturbance; and this property must be postulated, as it cannot be explained.
This continuum was held to render possible conduction in all directions throughout the grey matter of the whole nervous system.
