How do Aristotle's potentiality/actuality and ideas on the soul show causality? And are there any examples for either eg. the chef frying an egg after being told to by the waiter after being told by the customer..... to show prime mover

Thanks

Actuality: something which is in a current state of being something

Potentiality: the potential to become something else and move from potentiality into actuality

The Prime Mover is one who stays in actuality and doesn’t change into potentiality or into anything else but they can move things from potentiality into actuality.

If a match is lit, it’s in actuality. If there’s an unlit match, that’s in a state of potentiality since it has the potential to be lit. The prime mover moves things from potentiality to actuality so a human can light a match for example.

IT’S NOT LIKE A PERSON SETTING OFF A LINE OF DOMINOES.
