Epiphany of Epiphanies

Today, I had an aha moment. An epiphany. All at once, these Four Supreme Precepts, these Four Mighty Pillars of Civility and Wisdom came to me in a blinding vision:
Where did I find these? In the Lotus Sutra? The Tao Te Ching? The Analects of Confucius? The writings of Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, or any of that ever-expanding host of New (and Improved)-Age Sages? In the profoundest recesses my own marvelously sensitive, poetic ticker?

No -- in the ground rules for Wikipedia's discussion board.

May they be ground rules for this blog...particularly, the comments boxes.

You out there know who you are.
