Possibility has, in effect, materialized. The matter of the system has entered a state where it does not extrapolate into an abstract possibility, and instead effectively absorbs possibilities, en masse, into its animated matter. Materially present possibility is potential. The system"s criticality, of course, is as actual as any other state. What is in excess-over is the self-referentiality of the system"s critical condition, its doubling back on itself en masse. What the self-absorbed system infolds is materially co-present in that way: in potential.
