Volition is the capacity to conceptualize in the mind, alternatives to any given present circumstance. Volitional abilities are anything from gas or oil heat as opposed to wood fires or auto transportation as opposed to horse back. Volitional abilities essentially means, to produce the absence of the qualities and conditions of the natural world. To produce a roof, as an option to the rain, is to produce a state, as the absence of the natural condition.

What opposes human volition is what is termed Prohibitive Consequence, which is impossible or detrimental consequential outcome, like draining an ocean or jumping from a plane without a parachute, and Prohibitive Integrity, which are codes of conduct as ethics, morality or law, that regulate by prohibition or limitation, forms of human conduct such as laws against theft or gambling or supposed conventions of warfare.

Volitional abilities are enhanced by the creation of material invention, which transcend the state of nature, and which gives to the individual, any number of options to states pre-existent the invention, like the creation of the wheel or the gun. The greatest degrees of volition are derived from the creation of Excess and Profit, in which choice is manufactured like cars, televisions and computers.

Volitional abilities are also enhanced by the absence of any inherent Consequential Value, pertaining to anything mineral, vegetable or human. Anything considered to be absent Consequential Value called Materialism, to include human labor, may be used to create the means to volitional states as material resource.
