Givens from First Way:
God is unmoved mover.
God is in no way potential.
1.) God is spirit/ Non bodily
No body is an unmoved mover.
2.) God is not a force, physical quantity, or soul in bodies
All these move with the bodies they move,, or are identified with the motion.
3.) God is not any part of some larger whole
Parts are potential to the whole.
3.) God is all good.
If God and the universe were better than God, then God would be a part of a whole.
4.) God is perfect, and containing all perfection in an unlimited way.
If not, then God and the universe would be better than God, and God would be a part.
5.) God is infinite.
Limited things are made better by their complements, and so are parts of a larger whole.
6.) God is eternal.
What exists in time is either potential to its future (if passage is real), or the existence it has now is only a part of its whole existence (in a block universe).
7.) God cannot be multiplied.
What can be multiplied is a part of a larger whole.
Multiplication requires some indefinite stuff, God does not arise from indefinite stuff.
N.B. It’s amazing how much one gets out of divine simplicity considered so far as it means God is not a part.
Note also the tremendous fertility of the First Way. It is a truly sublime idea, like supply and demand or natural selection or the mathematization of nature. See also TOF on “The Cascades of the First Way“
