I don't think the ultimate point is to devalue money in any amount, but rather to force your brain to stop obsessing over small amounts (and also progressively increase what you consider to be small). I think a valid analogy would be that if you think a 5 kg weight is very heavy, it's going to be very hard for you to picture yourself lifting 50 kg weights. Steve takes it even further, suggesting that if you never get over thinking that 5 kg is heavy then you'll never get to a point where you're lifting 50 kg, because 5 kg will always remain heavy for you. That's my understanding of it.
