I see no value there at all. Literally zero.

 

___________
"We must, now armed with such a language, realize the “transcendental unity of ideas,” through a new morality that aims, not to hypostasize experience and grasp in positive knowledge a series of particular virtues and vices, but rather to fully explicate this continuity; where philosophy exists to represent this transcendental order, morality most exist to mediate the two spheres, the spheres of experience and ideality." --Parodites

"Between this sky and the faces turned toward it there is nothing on which to hang a mythology, a literature, an ethic, or a religion—only stones, flesh, stars, and those truths the hand can touch." --Camus

"It is a tedious thing to be always beginning life; they live badly who always begin to live." --Seneca

"I kick ass, all these other humans suck balls." --Inmendham

And that is your perception. Value is like beauty - it is in the eyes of the beholder.
Some value Puccini as beauty and value - some value a mathematical equation as such.
Our perception of value rests within our senses and our experiences and our beliefs.

For you to say the above must be de-valuing, in your own eyes, at the very least, everything which you have ever thought and written down in ilp.
And would you do that - even as a form of detachment? Or are you practicing nihilism? Laughing
