Code of Ethics

etic codex

A woman stands on the river bank, holding a child in her hands; is afraid to cross a flooded river; on this shore she is in danger after twilight.

You see how hesitant she is to do what she has to do.
You are a monk and you must not look at a woman, let alone touch her.
If you do not take her across the river with her child, they will be in danger.
Everyone else has crossed the river, you are the last.
However, if you help them, you will break your oath, you will be expelled, and you will probably die alone and humiliated.
How do you decide? Hurry, it is getting dark.

You have already made up your decision; you know what is right; you always knew that.
