Consider an electric kettle. Though not plugged into its Source and without water it is still a kettle. Let’s then say it is an electric kettle that is not right now operating as a kettle–but still a kettle. Once this kettle is plugged into its Source and filled with water it starts operating as an electric kettle, and can be utilized to its maximum potential. That is, boiling liquids–typically water. But the question raised is, was it always an electric kettle even without being plugged into the Source? Yes it was. So are you.
