The Infinity of God

Act is limited by potency. All potencies are ordered to some act, and to be ordered is to be determined to one as opposed to another. A member of a species, for instance, with reproductive capability is ordered to the procreation of another member of the same species and not a member of another. We have been speaking of act in a qualified manner, though. Act is not necessarily limited by potency. That act which, of itself, has no admixture of potency is not limited by potency and is not received by any potency. This act is not a form that informs matter, nor is it anything that inheres in some body. As such, this act is both unlimited and infinite.
