Nothing has any intrinsic value.

So you also put no value on your own life?

As in you're not afraid of dying?

No, I'm not afraid of dying.

Do I value my own life? Of course, but that's not an inference of intrinsic value.

So you value your own life more than others, right?

I know its just human instinct to value your own life more than others but just wondering nonetheless.

If you have a capacity to experience and dwell on suffering (sentience), then your value is 1.
If you don't (nonsentience), your value is 0.

Those that can suffer hold the only value in the universe.

I think everyone values their own life.

But that value isn't really built-in. It's only worth what we think it's worth.
So what kind of worth do you put on your own life?

I prefer my own existence, I wouldn't say it's more valuable, however.

I could kill a person, but I wouldn't hold a grudge against he who kills me either. If that makes sense.

If I'm not here, I'm doing Photography. Or I'm asleep. Or working. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is courtesy of Ugly Americans, with a little hint of Sep7agon history.
I don't know. I could rank life by how much they mean to me personally and to the world (a scientist or whatever), but I think the value of it must be a lot if I don't ever wish to "spend" it.


E.g. I know that if I were force to end someone's life, I'd prefer it to be a random person I've never met with no relatives or future potential than a family member. Then again, if it were the life of someone else or myself, I'd most likely choose me to live.

But that value isn't really built-in. It's only worth what we think it's worth.

A lot, obviously, but I understand that's only because I really like it.

I'm sure my life means much less to some random-ass stranger, and I can understand why.

At the same time, there are people whose lives I value more than my own, people I would be willing to die to protect. Some of these people value their lives much less than I do, though, and have attempted to end their lives at some point or other.

It's all really subjective. All lives are all inherently equally valuable or valueless, depending on how you want to look at it, but we apply our own value. It's just what we do. Thing is, that only matters to us.

The universe does not care how much we like ourselves or others.
Well said.

I value my life. Since I value my life, I'd like others to also value it, which is unlikely to happen unless I in return value the lives of others. I see it like bartering, just with all of society. This of course, is ignoring my emotional and illogical desire to help others that's been programmed into me by evolution.

Well, the jump from "do you put" to "intrinsic" is quite a big one...

I know. It just seems like a philosophical point big enough to bridge the gap.

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.
None

Enough value that I would give my own for somebody, anybody else's if need be. Enough that I devote my time, my efforts, and my life to doing the best I can to make the lives better of those I call friends and family. I will do all that I can to ensure that they have a future, not one of troubles and problems, but one of safety, and content.

Life, all life in general, is something special. It's a fleeting moment, something less then a speck of dust compared to the lifetime of the universe around us. And until proven otherwise, it's the best course to assume that the life we have in our hands is the only life we will ever have, and when it's gone, that's it. So while I am here, I will struggle, and toil, and fight to make something better for those around me. I will do my best to preserve the life that I find, no matter how small. And for the life that I have to take and consume in order to keep myself alive, I am thankful for that sacrifice, that cost.

Life = existence. Being careless with the sanctity of life means being careless with a person's very being. Therefore, I put a lot of value in it.
