Kinesis as a word from the early 17th century: from Greek kinēsis ‘movement’, from kinein ‘to move’. It is also explained by Aristotle as a particular type of energeia.
“An elaboration of Aristotle’s energeia is potentiality and actuality. The concept of potentiality, in this context, generally refers to any “possibility” that a thing can be said to have. Aristotle did not consider all possibilities the same, and emphasized the importance of those that become real of their own accord when conditions are right and nothing stops them. Actuality, in contrast to potentiality, is the motion, change or activity that represents an exercise or fulfillment of a possibility, when a possibility becomes real in the fullest sense.”
