DETERMINATION

The most fundamental evaluations that humans make is the determination of the Consequence of any or all entities of the physical existence. Determination means the kinds of definitions humankind uses to determine how any given entity will be treated, how it can be used, if it should be preserved or if it can destroyed. All human activity, behavior and conduct is based upon these kinds of determinations, and thus the concept of Determination represents primary authorities for human endeavor.

Determination is here classified as two fundamental interpretations that derive from what is a fact of living existence, which is the absence of any known authority that declares with certainty the definition, context, reason, meaning, purpose, value and consequence of the natural world. But what can be said is that there are two basic states of physical being, as states pre-existent change and changed states. Pre-existent states are the qualities, circumstances and conditions before change. Changed states are new conditions created after transformation or destruction.

The value of the pre-existent state is considered either greater than a changed state which is to replace it, which thus prohibits or limits its alteration by human means, or the pre-existent state is of less value than alternatives to it, allowing for its transformation or destruction. This determination is defined by the concept of the Comparative Determinant.

When a Determination is made in favor of either the pre-existent or changed state, wherein the individual as a rule favors one or the other, this propensity is termed the Conservative/Progressive Dichotomy. When pre-existent states are generally preferred over the changed, it is defined as Conservative.
