    A brief butting in on this thread:

    Does quality value? In other words, does Quality have preferences? I just have a suspicion that
    something crucial gets lost if we say no. What does it mean to say that a valuation which we make (a
    phrase that needs unpacking and clarifying itself) - what does it mean to say that a valuation which
    we make is a discernment of Quality, or a response to Quality, or however we want to describe it? Is
    Quality inert? Is it just a linguistic abstraction? Or does it 'lure' higher patterns of value up
    from the lower? Because if the latter is true - which is how I've always tended to understand it,
    although it may well not be how RMP understands it - if the latter is true then those 'troublesome
    human projections' might just have a coat peg on which to be hung.
