You seem to be assuming a lot...
Yes, affectance is the simplest substance. Potential-to-Affect, PtA, is the simplest concept expressed in physical reality (virtually identical to electric potential energy). PtA changing is what forms affectance. And it is necessarily always changing, creating our entire physical reality.
Is the simplest substance the same as the simplest thing?..
Well .. emmm ... yeah. A "thing" is also a substance. A substance is that stuff from which things are made. If it is infinitely divisible, and affectance is, then calling it a substance is far more appropriate (much like "aether").
Amorphos wrote: For example, potentiality I assume moves into affect like a curve. That’s a chain of things/facets/principles/information, or a process and a processing set of events. Now all you need is something to be making that process happen, even >if< a bunch of limits can be called infinite and unlimited somehow.
A "potential" is a situation. An apple hanging on a tree with a stem beginning to break, has the potential
to fall. Affectance potential, PtA, refers to the situation which will lead
to actual affecting. Since nothing else exists other than the propagation of affect, the only thing standing between an affect's potential and the eventual affect is time. Affects cannot propagate at infinite speed (because that would actually require greater than infinite speed of affecting from point to point). Thus the time it takes for an affect to traverse from point A to point B is the only thing preventing a potential-to-affect from being the actual affect itself. And without that time delay, physical existence could not happen at all because every affect would occur infinitely fast over an infinite distance and the entire universe would be homogeneous (which is the same as non-existence).

I don't see what that has to do with anything.
Amorphos wrote: reality must be empty at base for the reasons above [circles within circles]. even if the process of affectance were infinite it still needs some reason why it exists, and what stops nothing from existing.
As explained in this thread
, it is logically/mathematically impossible for affectance to ever NOT exist. There is no squeezing or stretching involved.
