Marginal Values' value is a marginal value, that is he is a joke of an agent, based on a character that doesn't really get it, like a recent convert to a flash in the pan idea, but has to make the loudest noise. He does a very basic, and not very relevant mapping of his data, and then confidently uses it just to make a noise.In the creation of a community of agents Marginal Values' value is to offer a broad spectrum of non-humanity,to include characters that don't necessarily have a direct connection to the research brief, to add background noise.
