What is the origin of good?

As a living being, we have neural mechanisms, or modules, which instill a preference for positive stimuli and an aversion from negative stimuli. We then inherently label objects and beings as having a positive or negative valence. Since this labeling exists along a continuum, the extreme value of positive are called goodness. Goodness can be in you (as we often think ourselves) or can be put onto you. We exist in a world of relationships.
