The Value of Value

Value, what is it? What has value and what does not? Why are some things considered so valuable and by whom? If you consider something to be valuable, it only stands to reason you must consider other things worthless. But are they? Do they have no intrinsic value at all? What would be more valuable to a man stranded in the desert, his throat parched, a bar of gold or a cold glass of water? Value can be a moving target, a thief in the night slipping away. The pursuit of false value is sure to lead one away from the path of the Dao.
