Title: Infinities as natural places
Author: Neves, Juliano C. S.
Abstract: It is shown that a notion of natural place is possible within modern physics. For Aristotle, the elementsthe primary components of the worldfollow to their natural places in the absence of forces. On the other hand, in general relativity, the so-called Carter-Penrose diagrams offer a notion of end for objects along the geodesics. Then, the notion of natural place in Aristotelian physics has an analog in the notion of conformal infinities in general relativity
