This has a bit to do with Maslow's "Self Actualization" but it is more to do with... all instances of potential that exist. For instance, the space between all masses in the universe could become mass, and the masses become space. That is a potential... but, it is the actualization of that potential that serves as the catalyst toward the reality. So, what is the relationship between the actualization of a potential and the potential itself? Do you need both properties for a potential to happen? What actualizes any potential such as the release of light... and what actualizes that actualization? If we follow the chain of events that have actualized the potential of the universe, will it lead to an understanding of how things got started? Last question... am I just going on about cause and effect? Or is "actualization" different from "cause"?
