The Foundation of Values

Are values intrinsic or are values built over time Values Document?

Certain values are heavily based in millennia old traditions…but all traditions had to start somewhere.

Other values are highly individual, and are created by a person to fulfill some sort of need. We see this a lot in anime MCs, where their stubbornness propels them toward some kind of goal and each event in their life confirms their overall narrative.

For example this is why Gon in HxH ends up losing his mind when he can't align the world to his perspective of it. He only became free after shattering his illusion of self.
