Prime matter, part II

If one defines prime matter as “that from which substances come to be” then it is evident that prime matter exists- things cannot come to be from nothing at all, at least not naturally. Again, there should be no dispute about whether matter is potential- a thing only becomes something because it is able to. The only question then is whether prime matter has any actuality or not- but if it does, what comes to be would have to be an accident, because it would be existing in another.
