We use Values in our thoughts, in our discussions, implicitly or expliicitly, in our art expressions or experiences, in directing our lifes.  We also use Values in our decisions, to choose between action A1 or action A2, A3,...  We can study Values in litterature and art,  and also in mathematical terms (Decision Making Theory, Utility Theory, Optimization,...).  In this website we look at theories,  practical examples, and ways to inspire our lives.  Here we collect and display descriptions of Values contributed by Club members.  Please send to us pictures and text!

 

.We can select Values by time span:  for a day, for a week, for a month ,  for a year, for many years,  for life,  for eternity;  by area of application: relationships,  work, charity, religion (Christianity, Islam, ...) ,  adventure,  art, knowledge, charity,...

Values become real through “actions”,  something I do  (in a wider meaning,  i.e. even contemplation is considered an “action”).  For example, the Value of “beauty and art” becomes real in my life if I look at works of art, go to an art gallery,  invest in paintings, or I start a career or a  hobby in art.

A value “love for my country” is realised if I am in a military career, or politics, or simply read books and watch movies that glorify my country.

Normally any such actions involve more than one value:  the choice of a career may involve at the same time “art”, “love of my country”,  as well as values in my financial affairs, in my relationships,….  Actions A1, A2, … may realise, each at different levels,  values V1, V2, V3, …

The knowledge of these mechanisms (becoming mathematical in decision making theories) is not required for the (subconscious) use of values in our daily life,  in the same way as the knowledge of the digestive system and chemistry is not required to enjoy a good lunch!

JUST LOOKING AT THE EXAMPLE VALUES IN THIS WEBSITE COULD GIVE US INSPIRATIONS OR JUST IDEAS FOR OUR LIFE, IN OUR SEARCH FOR MEANING...
