Morality is the over determination of judgements bestowed upon us, that is to say that it is the ultimate result of all the actions of man, for man who is an absolute existence can determine his own existence only by creating values. Therefore, man's experience is the manifestation of the principles that are set in line with his objectives. This experience is only made possible by all the acts of man developing personality through a moral reality. However, these acts require the revelation of a priori design absolutely shaped on human nature. The spontaneity of the action constitutes all sense of reality within it. How can morality provide a different explanation of the whole reality of human action which is an absolute existence from our perspective? If our actions revealed our true objectives, this would only give us the limits to which we can perceive the goings-on around us. That's why it is imperative that the reasons for the emergence of morally mandatory actions be conceived thoroughly. The answer to the question of how an absolute moral judgement is produced should provide us with the knowledge of why it exists. Were our actions not realities made possible by the universal existence of the moral judgements of our creation, we wouldn't be able to make a connection between our perceived reality and that of others while expressing how a particular action occurred. Therefore, morality should explain as a result of which actions it is produced and how the reality between different individuals and the reality under compelling circumstances come into being.
