Value-theories = Information

A
Value-theory
represents information. As we grow we learn how to reduce the uncertainty of how to influence our future. As your father said to you; life is about creation. An old friend of mine used to say that “we are the whole learning how to become itself”. That is it From More reporting on my progress on OGFOL today

Knowledge

The purpose of knowledge is prediction (of a meaningful outcome)
