Hi, rat. I wasn't trying to be argumentative, but the statement "We learn that the daoguan
sees everything with immutable value" seemed illogical, even nonsensical to me. Value is comparative, only exists in mind as a measure, determined because of alternatives more, less, or no value. "the daoguan sees everything with immutable value" renders the word "value" meaningless. (Of no 'value'.)
Everything has value, nothing has value...both say the same thing: nothing. If its all or nothing, value doesn't apply. Either way, nothing's being said.
Value judgments are operative in the renguan experience, but not in the daoguan, imo.
