Marquis (and others) may not be convinced that the feature that makes a condition worth pursuing for a person is his or her (and perhaps others’) real fulfillment. Nevertheless, these arguments suggest that Marquis’s position—to the extent it differs from the substantial identity account—is tied to what Marquis calls the experientialist version of the future of value account as opposed to the goods version. Since there are good reasons to prefer the goods version over the experientialist version of value, those also are reasons for rejecting Marquis’s version of the value of human life.

However, there is no qualitative difference between factors that merely block the actualization of a capacity, on the one hand, and those that introduce an internal change into the organism so that it is (once again, perhaps) at a stage where it needs only the suitable external circumstances to exercise its capacity, on the other hand. For example, an organism might be able to see (have an immediately exercisable capacity to see) but be impeded from doing so because it is in pitch darkness (an external impediment).
