The Conservative Spiritual interpretation of the planetary existence, which represents the authority for human conduct, is defined as a unified whole, or a totality of elements and parts, which is considered to make-up a single living aggregate. All elements of the whole, function in a unified manner, each part continuously replaced by reproduction, consuming only what is necessary, which preserves the regeneration as a constant, and promotes the existence of a Stable State. The Consequence of Being of every single natural element and entity, represents the value of the aggregate, wherein the comparative value of any given pre-existent state or entity, is equal to and equivalent the whole.

If every phenomenon, entity or event of the Given Existence, is considered as a single collective unified entity, then a Spiritual State could be defined as the infinite existence of the natural world and universe, as an already existent and complete result and product, the value of which is inherent in its being. This can be appreciated, by the experience of any given present moment and circumstance, of the natural world. Human experience, in terms of the concept of the Stable State, would be fairly equivalent in any particular environment, in any age or time. By example, going into a specific remote wilderness area is an experience common to all, for as long as that wilderness has been and will be.

Proto-religion is the ability of any given individual, in any given present circumstance, to experience, by the human sensory apparatus, evidence of a spiritual state, wherein the individual has a relationship, as a one to one equivalence, or is equal to every element of the natural world, defined as a unified living whole, and where the individual's identity is considered an aspect of the Given Existence. The individual is defined, in terms of the spiritual identity, by a relationship and experience with natural events and happenings, in a mutual manifestation of reality.

Beyond Necessity & Subsistence is the human capacity to create Excess and Profit, in which time and energy is expended, for more than what is necessary, usually as the production of an excess, of something one must do anyway, as goods for trade, or exchange for commodities which improve the conditions of human living, and that promote volitional ability.
