It's hard to imagine what resource is more valuable than knowledge and epistemics

I think my thinking is that for utilitarians, these are generally instrumental, not terminal values. Often they're pretty important instrumental values, but this still would mean that they could be traded off in respect to the terminal values. Of course, if they are "highly important" instrumental values, then something very large would have to be offered for a trade to be worth it. (total annihilation being one example)
