Article 74 - Local Collective
(i) An affiliated Local Collective is an ecclesiastically, legally and lawfully constituted subdivision of a Belief Collective corresponding to the past, present and future generations of higher order spirits of a traditional nation, state, province or region but smaller than a country or supranational affiliation; and
(ii) An unaffiliated and independent Local Collective is an ecclesiastically, legally and lawfully constituted body corresponding to an association, group, tribe, family of more than two (2) souls and less than twenty thousand (20,000) souls that is not formally aligned to any higher structure such as a Belief Collective or Regional Collective.
While an unaffiliated and independent Local Collective may have no formal association or alignment to any higher structure such as a Belief Collective or Regional Collective, all Local Collective are recognized as within the existence, dimension and jurisdiction of One Heaven in accord with the present Covenant.
Unless a Local Collective is implied or stated as part of a recognized historic Belief Collective, the following criteria are the essential structural components and properties of a valid Local Collective:
(i) A unique enclosure of consciousness and awareness whereby the boundaries of the enclosure are recognized as having historic provenance and meaning; and
(ii) A unique identity in name whereby the name of the Local Collective is recognized as having historic provenance; and
(iii) A permanent population of higher order spirits and souls within the bounds of the Local Collective not exceeding twenty thousand (20,000); and
(iv) A Provisional, Probationary or Permanent Collegium of Members representing either: (1) the provisional spiritual occupational forces formed upon the Day of Agreement and Understanding; or (2) a probationary Collegium formed when one (1) or more living Members have validated and ratified the present Covenant in association with their own Will and Testament; or (3) a permanent Collegium formed upon the ratification of the present Covenant in association with the formation and recognition of a Permanent Province of a University of a Union of living Members who recognize in name the Collegium and who claims its spiritual authority and power in making and amending laws; and
(v) A provisional, probationary or permanent Executive Government representing either the government of provisional Collegium, the government of a probationary Collegium or government of a permanent Collegium.
