Hylomorphic note (3)

But it’s crazy to think first matter is a feature of the universe. That said it’s only the universe that has all real possibilities of material things in it. but how does one square this with the need for a subject having no act at all? Are we forced to make some sort of division between “having no act” and “being potential to all natural things’?

More generally, how do we tell the difference between “potential to all material things” when said of prime matter and the universe?
