I agree with what you present below. I mistakenly used the word
"part" which was incorrect as you point out. Hopefully this does not
detract from my message. Yes, our existence is Moral Value. I
believe that my view of such things is consistent with MoQ. For
indeed, Quality is a word that denotes Value and Morality, in its
static expression. This is why RMP uses those words in his titles.
We should also be aware that to say Morality "manifests" itself as
such is also incomplete in it description, for it does not manifest
itself since technically speaking Morality cannot be said to be
something as it comes before such being. I think you are aware of
this, and I point this out to those who wish to replace such things
with static values. In the same way, we cannot say that "hostility"
manifests in MoQ discussions.
Thank you for the correction. My bad.
