Are fields objects? Are they objects with the potentiality to become "things"?'Object' connotes a 'thing' which has a property of location, velocity, exists for a duration within time, etc.
A field has none of these things and is thus not an object by any reasonable definition.
For that matter, 'universe' fails to meet any of that criteria and much confusion results from treating it as one.
Take the field 'altitude' for instance. The surface of Earth has, everywhere, an altitude, and thus the field can be measured anywhere. It doesn't have a location since it is defined for all points on the surface. It has no potential to become a thing, but since Earth anchors it, it would (unlike something like the EM field) cease to be meaningful if Earth ceased to exist.
