This subliminal belief system reduces the field of value down to only those objects preceded by a dollar sign and ignores the intrinsic value of the creative process itself; however, if we were to remove the metric that measures the legitimacy of the process by calculating the dollar value of the image it produces, then we will see that the creative process is priceless. It is an intrinsic characteristic of the human condition, and therefore an indispensable component of a healthy way of life.
