Entelechey: realization of potential

Aristotle says there is a core principle within that shapes outcomes into reality.

The “entelechey” is a motivating force that organizes potential into actuality; that is, it directs potential into the real instead of mere theory or form.

A fundamental seed, like a crystalline DNA, expresses its shape (ideas and form) and its will to expand into an organized realization (matter).
