The Commens Dictionary
Quote from ‘The Prescott Book’
Potentiality is the absence of Determination (in the usual broad sense)[,] not a mere negative kind but a positive capacity to be Yea and to be Nay; not ignorance but a state of being. It is therefore Inchoateness of Being. Nothing is the Egg of Being. It is self-contained ability to be this and that. Latent Being.
