Progressive Determination means that reason, purpose and consequence is only derived from entities that produce or have potential to produce, what is considered of consequence to the individual or the larger society. Progressive Determination explains change that has consequence as activity and behavior that increases value. States and entities that are produced by human effort and energy, possess reason, meaning and purpose for their existence, by the results and products they produce. The axe, car, train and spoon all produce results and products which explain the reason, purpose and the value of their existence. Because material resource is necessary to improved states, and because the natural world does not progress or produce Excess and Profit, it is considered to have no meaning or consequence in and of itself, and thus it can be transformed or destroyed at will, and leave the pre-existent state in such a condition that it may never regenerate to its former state.

From the concepts of Finite and Existent Determination two interpretations result as types of value and consequence termed Definitive and Olamic Value. Definitive Value descends from Progressive and Olamic from Existent Determination.

Definitive Value identifies and tends to define a quality, state or entity in terms of a specific and singular definition. Definitive Value explains the reason, purpose, meaning and consequence of any given state or entity in terms of relationships to results & products, as contributive resource, vehicles for, or actual qualities & conditions.
