Actuality is formal in so far as, being primary actuality, it is only immediate, unreflected actuality, and hence is only in this form determination but not as the totality of form. Actuality is to be taken as this reflected absoluteness. Actuality also stands higher than Existence. Actuality as itself the immediate form unity of inner and outer is thus in the determination of immediacy over against the determination of reflection into self; or it is an actuality as against a possibility. Thus form in its realization has penetrated all its differences and made itself transparent and is, as absolute necessity, only this simple self-identity of being in its negation, or in essence. This absolute unrest of the becoming of these two determinations is contingency. The blind transition of necessity is rather the absolute's own exposition, the movement of the absolute within itself which, in its alienation, rather reveals itself.
