Religion is distinguished from Spirituality. Religion is materialist and progressive while Spirituality is Conservative and Spiritual.
Spirituality proceeds Religion in terms of progressive human material development, in which non-physical spiritual entities are considered as contained
in and coexistent with the natural world. The
economic means is Necessity and Subsistence, and what is used for human consumption is limited to what is needed. Thus no blame.
Religion begins with the introduction of
Excess and Profit, and the stratification of society into progressed and less developed classes. The object
and identity of Progressive Materialism,
as first progressive material acquisition, becomes extrapolated into the spiritual realm of the non-physical.
Progressive Materialism is bipolar by its nature, wherein all evaluation is by the comparison of the natural, undeveloped, primitive states to developed, superior, sophisticated and elite qualities and conditions. These bipolar opposites are termed the
Anithetical Matrix, or what is natural and Metaphysical Ideal, or the highest degrees of development. The Metaphysical Ideals of Religion are non-physical, abstract, mental and intellectual constructs, that represent superior perfection and purity opposite to the natural physical world. The Metaphysical Ideal of Religion is termed
Extra Mundane Authority.
