went out tonight with some friends. a couple.
to manta ray. good place!
every time i go there i have a feeling i need to go there more often.
- good food,
- good atmosphere,
- good location.
on the way there we spoke about the 10 commendments.
if you could add an 11th, what would it be?
please leave comments, i am interested in hearing.
we agreed that a great candidate is:
‘Do not do to others what you would not like to be done to you’
by the way, this is not only wisdom of judism, but many culture and is know as ‘the golden rule’
the golden rule has 2 versions, positive and negative. the negative one, of which this is an example, is called the silver rule.

The Sage Hillel, an elder contemporary of Jesus of Nazareth, formulated a negative form of the golden rule. When asked to sum up the entire Torah concisely, he answered:
|“||That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow. That is the whole Torah; the rest is the explanation; go and learn.||”|
