Because the composition of the whole is unknown with no known beginning
and end or dimensionality, no context as any result of product that explains its
activity and behavior, the consequence and value of the whole is open, relative
and unknown. This open value means that the individual can decide for the
self, the value of the whole and thus every part contained within it. This ability
of the self assessment of consequence, is considered as an aspect of the definition of Spirituality. The consequence and value of any aspect of reality from human life itself to plants, animals, minerals or insects is relative to
what the individual defines it to be. Thus any given entity can be what the individual thinks it is, and can be ascribed value and consequence equivalent
to the capability of the individual to realize its worth and merit. The value of the whole may be considered equivalent to what is necessary to maintain the existence of the parts, and the parts may be considered as equivalent to the consequence of the whole. Thus the consequence and value of the human existence of the individual may be said to be equal to that of the whole, such
as any or all aspects of the planet, the solar system, galaxy or universe. The value of the individual or of all existence itself, is realized to be whatever the individual thinks or assesses it to be.
Wherein the Mundane Consciousness ascribes contexts of time, duration,
limitation, progression or singularity upon all existence, the perspective of
Symbolic Consciousness is described by the term Olamic Value, wherein no specific singular, definitive
and finite definition and context is ascribed to entities and events. These are open to individual interpretation. Olamic Value derives from the condition of
the Absent Determinant.
If a tree is not given a utilitarian definition as the context of some purpose
it serves like shade, producer of nuts or lumber, then it has no known
reason for existence in terms of some result and product, and it cannot be determined exactly what it is by what it is for. Thus it is for the individual to
make this determination. Because it is not defined to be any particular one
thing, then it can be one or many things, or it can be different things at
different times depending upon the interpretation of the individual. This open interpretation allows for the free thinking of the mind and allows the individual the privilege and the responsibility to self-decide what anything is and how it should be used and of what its value and consequence is.
