      This Codex Vitae, or "book of life", is a collection of my beliefs and concepts that inform my decisions and life. It is a work in constant flux; as my understanding changes, so will my beliefs. The main purpose of this document is to (1) pull my beliefs into the light where I can questions them more effectively and (2) to share philosophies, concepts, tools, and inspiration that have been helpful to me.

      ## How to Use This Codex
      **If you are (YOUR NAME):**
      - Develop a habit of using the Codex as a repository for beliefs that develop throughout the year.
      - Consider doing a monthly review of whether my life is in alignment with values and beliefs. If not, should my behavior change or have my understanding and values changed?
      - Do a yearly review in January of the entire document, editing places where beliefs have changed. Expect beliefs and tactics to change — don’t hold on to them too rigidly.

      **If you are not (YOUR NAME):**
      - Read this with the understanding that you are different than Terrie— the way she lives her life is not the way you should live yours.
      - Consider creating your own Codex Vitae. Feel free to copy anything here that is helpful.

      # In General
      ## Meta-beliefs
      Beliefs are incontrovertible and never change.
      Ideas are malleable and objectively better than beliefs, except this belief
      Prepare to be wrong
      All meanings in this codex pertain to your personal concepts, not anyone else's. You do not have to use the "right word" for other people in this.
      If someone sees this and thinks you used the wrong word, see the section on "proper response to impression of a conflicting world view."

      ## Principles
      - All anyone can do is make the right decision at the right time given the variables in front of them
      - Those who justify their deeds with righteousness are worse than those that do not justify their deeds
      - Never trust a zealot or a true believer

      # Influences
      ## Concepts
      Philosophies or ideas I espouse.
      ###Proper response to imposition of a conflicting and hostile world view
      "Suck it." Other possibilities include "fuck yourself," and time permitting, "shove a splintery plunger up your most cherished dead relative's ass, then suck the discharge that comes out, else I fuckstart your head."
      ### Worst Case
      The evidence currently states that this existence has no place for you, nor do you occupy any particular ontologically sound position. Thus, the only moral and ethical option is to free up the planet by one seven-billionth.
      ### Worst Worst Case
      As the largest tether to this existence and the one person anchoring you to a sound mind has transitioned to a new plane of existence, there is no ontologically sound position for you other than to free up the planet by one seven-billionth.
