@rexrf, It is not so much a case of no longer valuing things that I am talking about, I am really just saying that things will still exist without them, things do not need our evaluation to validate them. It is probably impossible to stop from seeing some things as needed or necessary while others are an obstacle, but what you can do is know that any of the worth, or lack of, that you assign to any given phenomena is just a label that only exists in your mind.

I think everything has a purpose, but just because that purpose does not directly serve us does not mean its existence is invalid. What we do is we liberate the constructive, we invent and create in order to improve the quality of existence, with the destructive we either harness it to serve us or we avoid it.

Values are just in determining between the constructive and destructive, that which heightens the quality of existence and that which harms, but these are natural directions of constructive beings, when you dabble in values you require discipline over the fears and desires that inevitably arise with them. The key to this discipline is knowing the curse of values.
