In the previous chapter it was shown that certain other attributes—being one and not many, having all attributes necessarily, perfection and not finitude, a non-partitive but self-differentiating unity, eternity—follow from necessary existence. At first sight, it seems that it cannot be so clearly demonstrated that further properties, such as being personal, also follow from necessary existence. Yes, anything that implies finitude can be ruled out, but there appears to be no positive criterion for deciding what could also apply to the one necessary being. But, since it has been shown to possess all its attributes necessarily, what can apply to it must apply to it. Therefore, all that we need to ask about any additional candidates for its attributes is whether they entail finitude or not: if they do, they cannot apply; and if they do not, they must apply.
