Let’s do it seriously… It’s a Joke…
In the Creation chapters I told you how to create Mercedes. A set of States in terms of various parts gathered together according to a certain scheme and as a result «Mercedes».
You don’t need a set of different States of inanimate matter: nuts, frame, seats, glass, engine do you? What do you need when you aspire to owning Mercedes?
Abraham Maslou, a well-known American psychologist and the founder of humanistic psychology, has already presented a certain priority of needs in various States. The well-known Maslow Pyramid is a diagram that hierarchically represents human needs. “The hierarchy remains a very popular framework in sociology research, management training and secondary and higher psychology instruction. Maslow's classification hierarchy has been revised over time “(quoted from Wikipedia). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow%27s_hierarchy_of_needs

As for me, I can add that this is not a dogma, priority is determined for the average assessment, and is perfectly applicable for various social groups. For each individual, this scale is built in accordance with his own priorities.
As a suggestion: have a try to turn this pyramid upside down.
You have done it, haven’t you? There is the Absolute point at the base, developing into the Need (Necessity) for Self-actualization.
According to A.Maslou, Self-actualization is
"What a man can be, he must be." This quotation forms the basis of the perceived need for self-actualization. This level of need refers to the realization of one's full potential. Maslow describes this as the desire to accomplish everything that one can, to become the most that one can be(quoted from Wikipedia).
This route is not easy, it is accompanied by a sense of fear and anxiety due to uncertainty and responsibility, but it leads to a rich, fulfilling, and internally rich life. According to K. Rogers, self-actualization is the great moving force that makes a person develop constantly, from birth to death, including his creative impulses. A self-actualizing person is a “fully functioning personality”; his features are very similar to those of a child: he also independently studies and evaluates the world, taking an example from adults.
In my opinion, conditionally initial Needs (Necessities) are physiological, they show us the relationship of our organisms with animals. Aesthetic needs (Necessities) and the need (Necessity) for self-actualization make us human, and indicate our relationship with God.
Change your States (Conditions) if you are pleased. It is so wonderful. It is a wonder and beauty of Being.
