Aristotle is the pioneering formulator of precise, cogent, hugely influential models of reality [they lasted well past Copernicus; Immanuel Kant begins with him].
But oddly enough, Aristotle installed a very strange fellow, an indecipherable creature in-fact, in the sanctum-sanctorum of his scrupulous, logically precise modeled world.
From Aristotle’s Metaphysics:
‘There is therefore also an Unmoved-Mover, being eternal, primary and in act..the first mover is a necessary Being..and is thus a first principle, for there is always a mover of things moved, and the first mover is itself unmoved.’
Aristotle’s celebrated ‘Unmoved-Mover’. A paradigmatic Self-Eating Expression. Aristotle’s ‘God’.
