  • Available as a possibility.
  • That which is available as a possibility.
  • That which is possible.
  • The infinite reservoir of all that can be actualized.
  • Anything that can be imagined is a potential that may be actualized.
  • Ideas are a type of potential.
  • Potential is limitless.
  • Potential can be regarded as a spectrum from totally intangible possibility to utmost tangibility.
  • All of the content in Supreme Mind, regardless of how tangible it may seem, regardless of whether it is labeled as actual or potential, is a field of potential. However tangible something may seem to be, however actualized a possibility may seem to be, everything is a potential interacting with all that is potential.


  • “What is potential is. What is actual is still potential. All that potentially is is.”
