On the Order of Creation Towards Distinction
We must next consider the work of distinction; first, the ordering of creation towards distinction; secondly, the distinction itself. Under the first head there are four points of inquiry:
- Whether formlessness of created matter preceded in time its formation?
- Whether the matter of all corporeal things is the same?
- Whether the empyrean heaven was created contemporaneously with formless matter?
- Whether time was created simultaneously with it?
