First Commandment is
First Commandment is
I am the Lord thy God and thou shalt not have other gods before me.

without it, the other 9 make no sense (i.e. who cares). However, we still have a classic bootstrap problem. Without First Commandment being axiomatic, First Commandment itself makes no sense.

The solution is a 3-stage bootstrap (just like that of a compiler [1]).

Stage 1. Read First Commandment. Now you know that "I am the Lord thy God"
Stage 2. Read First Commandment. Now you believe that ""I am the Lord thy God".
Stage 3. Read First Commandment. Compare your belief in the First Commandment to that after Stage 2. If they are identical, there are no obvious bugs in the First Commandment or your brain.

Now you can read the rest of the Commandments.
