Everything has a value and something that does not have a value is a type of value. You could call a free will which is randomness a value, but everything has a cause. Something is caused has a specific effect, and cannot be caused by randomness because a cause is causing the randomness to cause it and so on in an infinite conceptual loop, leaving no end what can never change.

@edgarblythe,
matter can't be created or destroyed therefore you exist and don't die. For matter to change form there needs to be a thing that determines how to cause a cause to cause something in a certain way. Every way not to do something needs to be determined not to cause the incorrect effect going through everything possible cause which conceptually includes your life and your self.
every cause has a cause including the causes of causing causes leading up in a triangular lines of cause and effect and cause of cause and effect and cause of that cause. The triangular pattern is correct because a singe cause of all causes cannot reach every cause in space.

In time every cause needs to be caused to caused to occur at that certain point therefore an eternal loop, which is incorrect, but is caused not to cause therefore creating the eternal loop.

@xrickandmorty,
When you scatter the parts that are me, you effectively kill that which is me. Only scattered parts remain, like the wreck of old 99.

@xrickandmorty,
I'm already one with myself. All I want now is to be able to drink beer like I did forty years ago.

@edgarblythe,
Heck. I remember when I was in the military, we used to go to the PX beer hall and drink all day! That's when I started smoking, then quit in my early 30's.

@cicerone imposter,
Yeah, I don't smoke anymore. I only drink a couple of beers at Christmas and New Years.

@edgarblythe,
Half the people in the world think that the metaphors of their religious traditions, for example, are facts. And the other half contends that they are not facts at all. As a result we have people who consider themselves believers because they accept metaphors as facts, and we have others who classify themselves as atheists because they think religious metaphors are lies.
— Joseph Campbell

@edgarblythe,
And most humans have natural fear and imagination. Poetry, not so much.
