In the end, things ending give things value.

It seems more of a synthesis between beginning and end that gives things value.

value comes from the same thing knowledge does: we know what things are because of what they aren't and via versa. The same is true for the innate value of whatever your talking about.

Scarcity also plays a part in value, though value is subjective by nature. It can only be expressed in relation to something else; who values it, or in comparison to what. You can't argue that things are intrinsically valuable because in doing so you're making a judgement call. It has intrinsic value in your perception.

"You can't argue that things are intrinsically valuable because in doing so you're making a judgement call." What´s wrong with that?

Value is all relative. Is a pound of gold more valuable than a bushel of apples? or what about a small calf?. Now let's say you are stuck somewhere remote and in danger of starving to death...what is now more valuable?
