Sure, why not?

I could value the complexity of something, or I could value it's
temperature. Some physical variables will give intrinsic value
functions that might be somewhat like our own (complexity), but others
would be quite strange (temperature).

I don't claim to know what the correct function is, but I think it is
not unknowable.
