The hubris in use value

It takes a certain hubris, maybe subtle, to insist upon a use value for everything—What good is it? is a way of asking What good is it to me?

How do we move ourselves beyond use value? Even the How question is based at least in part on use value—this use is better than that.

So we move ourselves there by continually bringing our attention back here. Maslow says that other ways of seeing the world do not make sense to the fully human. They either do not see, are not attracted to, or consciously ignore dichotomies, use-based thinking. We think in B-values—Being & Values.
