MATERIALISM

CONSEQUENCE OF BEING
The necessity to transform nature for human needs and wants produces the problem of the human conflict between destruction and creation. Nature is the Pre-existence which proceeds all human created conditions. The distinction is made between the Pre-existence and human created alternatives which derive therefrom. The consequence of the existence of any given pre-existent state or entity, which must be used as material or space for changed or alternative qualities and conditions, has its value and consequence determined by what it is used for. The Consequence of Being represents the evaluation of the value and consequence of any pre-existent state or entity, as compared to the necessary or superfluous human created change, which requires the transformation or destruction of pre-existent states and conditions. This concept illustrates the true conviction of the individual, by what is consumed or possessed, either as first hand or passive participation.

COMPARATIVE DETERMINANT
The comparison between the value and consequence of a pre-existent as compared to the changed state which replaces it, is termed the Comparative Determinant. The pre-existent state is either of greater consequence, wherein its use as space or material is prohibited or limited, or it is of less, wherein its transformation or destruction is allowed. This determination by any given individual, represents the true Consequence of Being of states and entities by virtue of what is done as opposed to what is said or thought. This difference described as the Ethical and Volitional Division, is a further spit of the Bipolar Divergence in which ethical conduct corresponds to the premises of what has been defined as conservative and spiritual, while the emphasis on volitional capacity equates to what has been described as progressive and material. Ethics represents standards for human conduct when pre-existent states or conditions are determined to be of greater value and consequence than alternatives created to them, and thus is based on prohibitions and limitations. Morality represents standards of conduct when alternative states are of greater consequence than what they replace, and thus is based upon the promotion of the abilities of volition.
