To value empowers.
That which is power is valued.
To value one must self-value.

So we have
self-valuing
valuing
otherness
power

Power is the quantization of otherness.
Selfvaluing is the qualification of 'ness itself.

And thus valuing, as an intermediary, is both quantative and qualitative. It places the quality in context so that it becomes a quantity.

This points also toward that fascinating aspect of truth and of language successfully embodying truth, written from a position of strength and distance: it will, seemingly counter-intuitively, not produce a single perspective but instead produces many different perspectives, even ones in opposition to each other (across various mediating tectonic planes).

Truth is less reality than value. This is because value can be used as a substitute for reality itself. There is no "one reality" except that conflux wills to power of spheres of self-valuings' potentials.

I believe this is true - whenever we make a statement a kind of nexus is created where different perspectives can make a claim, all interpreting it in terms of themselves, all thus bending this truth in all sorts of different directions even just for it to apply to anything at all.

Language is thus fundamentally divisive, and unification within language is the near-impossible task of philosophy.

Indeed. In a purely ontological framework, there isn't even such a thing as falsity, so neither is there any truth. Truth is only valid in a statement or a thought, it's a meta-concept.
