Beatitude Part IV: That The

Beatitude Part IV: That The Immaterial Principle of Human Life Is Directly Created By God.

The immaterial part by which man lives subsists separately from matter (by definition, see post III).
But matter is that out of which something comes to be (see post II).

And so the immaterial part presupposes nothing out of which it comes to be.
But what presupposes nothing in its coming to be can only be made by that which presupposes nothing in its bringing things forth (reformulation of conclusion)

But that which presupposes nothing in bringing things forth is the first principle of all things (by definition).
And this first principle all call God.
