                                                         Guidelines for Living
                                    


Learning and Teaching: Be a constant learner; acquire knowledge broadly but especially in areas that are substantiated and evidence-based. Pass on such secure knowledge to those desirous of learning; do not inculcate in others what is only unsubstantiated belief.

Conservation and Treatment: Seek greater understanding of all life and the substrates upon which it depends; respect and support diversity of life which reflects the common purpose of survival and extension of species as well as evolution of new forms. Help maintain an essential genetic pool; take no more than will be replaced and restored.

Behavior and Expectation: Treat all with fairness and the hope that this will be reciprocated; avoid when possible those who are afflicted with closed minds.
