The response to the taste of a particular wine may be more influenced by the label on the bottle than the actual quality of the wine. This associative process is termed the Antipodal Associative Paradigm.

The Identity Determinant of the Progressive Material Volitional Identity is to identify oneself by Volitional Abilities, which are measured against Metaphysical Ideals. These are such things as talent, money, competitive ranking, profession or property. This determinant is independent of the self, and depends upon the content of the Dyadic Authoritative Comparative as a degrees of worth and consequence in relation to some Antithetical Matrix and Metaphysical Ideals. In terms of Religious Materialism, the individual depends upon a correspondence of activity, behavior and conduct to Extra Mundane Authorities like the perfection of God.

The absence of inherent consequence and subsequent reliance upon the Dyadic Authoritative Comparative as a means to assess value and consequence, produces the human condition and concept of the absence of responsibility. The individual proceeds by conceptual instructions as the conditioned association of the Antipodal Associative Paradigm, which acts as instruction for how any given subject should be treated. To the extent that these instructions are accepted without question, the individual can be said to be following orders and not truly responsible for one's own actions.
