If that is true, all solid must stay at 0 K. How correct do you think this is?

I'm not getting the concept then. Or maybe is it correct to say that solids will tend to be closer to 0K? Because if in Heat there is movement means that molecules or atoms are tightly packed, or am I mixing terms up?

The problem here is that you think movement mean things are going off all over the place. How about movement as in just vibration about a fixed position?
