The tree is an already existent result and product, which corresponds to the larger environment, as the earth's climate. Any change to its constitution, is only plausible in terms of its exterior environment such as a changing atmosphere.

The degree to which the environment and Given Existence may be transformed or destroyed for the purposes of human created alternatives, is represented here as a fundamental distinction between spirituality and materialism.

The Progressive Material perspective and determination of consequence, defines the difference in the value between a changed state and the tandem state changed, as distinct and opposed, which represents the creation of duality termed Bipolar Value.

The reality of modern human experience can be defined as two fields, or the state of the Given Existence, and human created alternatives to it, termed Qualified States, which promote the absence of the qualities and conditions of the natural world. These two fields represents the polarization and duality of Consequential Value.

Bipolar value represents associative attributes, dichotomized into inferior/superior, simple sensory distinguishment. Superior alternatives, to any given state or circumstance, as the cool of the wood may be preferable to the heat of the desert, are legitimized by obvious comparative contrast. These sensory facilities are necessary to the survival of any sentient being.

Qualified States, as improved standards of living, produces a conflict. Human created states need material for their creation and require the transformation of nature. The progressive material authority, for human action and conduct, is the fundamental opposition between nature and human created alternatives and ideals. The promotion of the absence, of the conditions of the natural world, is the creation of human volitional abilities, or the facility of choice, like to ride rather than walk. Natural transformation and destruction, which is a continuous threat to human created states, may be defined as opposed, antithetical, and in opposition to, human created states, as anything from main street to human health.
