Material being

For material being, existence is existence with matter- hence it is intrinsically indeterminite and therefore imperfect existence, which is the root of its corruptibility, its extension, its mobility, its temporality. It does not follow from this that matter is anything but good: for all things intrinsically ordered to perfection are good, and matter is such. Again, as I’ve said many times on this blog, this all follows from what the word matter means: matter is what can be turned into something: i.e. what can be something.
