Perennialist Meaning of Worth

1. The Law of Higher Worth:   
  • The more a sub-human believes himself to be worth, the less worth he actually is.
  • The less a genuine human believes himself to be worth, the more worth he is.

    2. Sub-humans believe they are worth more than they really are. They bore others with incessant rehearsals of their supposed importance and significance; they never stop talking about themselves. They feel their personal feelings are all-important, so they drone on incessantly about thrir fears, doubts, suspicions, and egomaniacal puffery.

    3. Whereas subhumans delude themselves into believing that their worth can be identified by their financial net worth, genuine humans evaluate their worth in terms of their: rationality, understanding, self-awareness, appreciation, earning of discernment, communion with Higher Beings, and altruism.
