    Since form is what makes matter a “this,” the soul is substance in the sense of the form (a20) or essence (b12) of a living thing. Here is Aristotle’s first answer to the question of what the soul is (a20): The soul, then, must be substance as the form of a natural body that is potentially alive. SOUL KEEPING by John Ortberg PROLOGUE: The Keeper of the Stream Ortberg opens the book with the following allegory which is used throughout the book: There once was a town high in the Alps that straddled the banks of a beautiful stream. The stream was fed by springs that were old as the earth and deep as the sea. The water was clear like crystal.

    All, however, that these thinkers do is to describe the specific characteristics of the soul; they do not try to determine anything about the body which is to contain it, as if it were possible, as in the Pythagorean myths, that any soul could be clothed upon with any body-an absurd view, for each body seems to have a form and shape of its own.

(Not its shape, but its actuality, that in virtue of which it is the kind of living thing that it is.) Grades of Actuality and Potentiality. Aristotle distinguishes between two levels of actuality (entelecheia).
