What Is the Etymological Origin of the Word 'Code'?
The Mystery of the Human Mind
The eighth wonder of the world is the human mind. The greatest intellects known to man struggled and failed to demystify the shrouded inner workings of human consciousness.
What is evident, is that each and every one of us is guided daily by ethical, pathological, and logical code.
Most of us, however, will never come close to fully understanding our inner codex, and will leave much undiscovered and unedited.
Unconscious, unedited code is a barrier to maximizing potential.
You do not have to be one of those people. With just a little effort, you can make great strides and overcome astronomical barriers gaining access to unimaginable cognitive powers.
Train your mind to construct cognitive and moral code. Not just once - everyday. Creating, managing, and maintaining an internal codex is a life long affair.
Go easy on yourself
Not the day after.
Make a list of ten things you think are right and wrong
Now check your recent actions against your new code.
Are you walking the walk?
Make sure you are.
A healthy internal code is the secret to a fulfilling life, for yourself, and those who depend on you.
"'System of secret communication signs' is a relatively recent semantic development of the word code, which emerged in the early 19th century. It derived from an earlier sense 'system of laws,' which was based on a specific application to various sets of statutes introduced by the Roman emperors. The word itself came from Old French code, a descendant of Latin codex, whose meaning 'set of statutes, book of laws' derived from a broader sense 'book.' This in turn came from an earlier 'piece of wood coated with wax for writing on,' which was based ultimately on 'tree trunk,' the word's original meaning. Codex itself was borrowed into English in the 16th century. Its Latin diminutive form, codicillus, produced English codicil."
