    Atomism

    A theory adopted in Sunni and Shii theology proposing that the world consists of two kinds of primary entities: atoms, which are conjoined to form bodies, and the accidents that reside in these atoms, each of which contains a single discrete instance of a characteristic or its contrary. Atoms exist through many instants, whereas accidents, since they exist for only an instant, must constantly be created anew by God.
