If I sit and ponder it for a bit, it strikes me as incredibly silly that people can think that objective value does not exist.
“What’s right for you might not be right for me,” they say.
Or, “that’s just your opinion, to each their own.”
You can easily prove this wrong with a few outlandish examples though.
But the point raised here is correct.
There is some sort of mystical component to this that exists outside of physics.
There must be.
For nothing Tao-like came come from mere stardust.
This conception in all its forms, Platonic, Aristotelian, Stoic, Christian, and Oriental alike, I shall henceforth refer to for brevity simply as ‘the Tao’. Some of the accounts of it which I have quoted will seem, perhaps, to many of you merely quaint or even magical. But what is common to them all is something we cannot neglect. It is the doctrine of objective value, the belief that certain attitudes are really true, and others really false, to the kind of thing the universe is and the kind of things we are.
