Progressive Authority represents the value of any given changed state, as superior to the value of the tandem pre-existent state changed, by virtue of the superiority of increased well-being, and volitional abilities, for any individual, group or culture. The Consequence of Being, of any or all elements, of both the natural and human created states, may be defined as material resource for, and contribution to, superior qualities and conditions, as living standards. The individual is defined, in terms of the material identity by worth, or what the person creates, produces or possesses.
The fundamental condition of the Given Existence, for all life to include human, is economic. The necessity and reality of economic survival for humankind, is the need to transform or destroy elements of the Given Existence, for human necessity and superfluity. Every human created product requires material resources for its making, which in some way affects or changes the natural world.
The Given Existence considered as a spiritual state, would possess an integrity, such that its transformation or destruction would be limited or prohibited, as material for human created superfluidity. The natural world absent any inherent spirituality, may be considered as a material state which possesses no innate value in and of itself, and thus may be used for the purposes of producing, not only necessity, but any degree of excess.
The economic system of the Given Existence, which applies to all living things accept humankind, is what is defined here as Necessity and Subsistence. Energy is expended for only what is necessary, as an exact equivalence to the energy consumed, in the activity and behavior of living, as necessary to the preservation and maintenance, of any given pre-existent or present state, in identical or near like form. This includes more than is necessary as storage, for times when what is needed, is not accessible for immediate consumption.
