... / most advanced / ..
... / largest artificial structure"
... / current ... propulsion method
... / most spiritually advanced ..
... / longest living ... /

Thanks for any positive/constructive feedback.

Post Re: Superlative Cues
There is nothing special about these, it's the standard method for selecting a specific class or item out of an ontological group.

An often seen mistake is the stringing together of several superlatives or superlatives with other selectors like e.g. "next", which creates the logical equivalent of a wall that nothing can pass.
