A state of Spirituality is Conservative. This means that the value and consequence of any or all elements of the Given Existence, represents an already existent and complete entity, the primary function of which is to exist and preserve itself, as an already complete and finished manifestation. Conservative means that a current state possesses value and consequence such, that the human facility and choice to create alternatives which change or replace it, is limited or prohibited.
A concept of Materialism is Progressive. This mean that the Given Existence is defined, as having no inherent Consequence in and of itself, but acquires its value, consequence and identity, as material for human created alternatives to nature, which are termed
Qualified States, that promote the absence of the conditions of nature, and create the abilities of human volition. Progressive means, that alternatives to a given state are of greater value, than the conditions they replace.
Change as transformation or destruction is inherent in every aspect of both natural and human created states. A primary distinction between what is described here as 'Conservative Spirituality' and 'Progressive Materialism' is the assessed relationship of consequence and value, of a state as it pre-exists and as it follows change. Change can be said to promote the existence of the former state replaced, in identical or near like form, or may replace the former state, and substitute new conditions.
The Conservative Spiritual perspective is that the value of any naturally changed state is equivalent and equal to the pre-existent state changed. The Progressive Material determination is that the value of human created change, which produces the absence of the qualities and conditions of nature, and promotes human volition, is of distinct and superior consequence and value.
