The Flow Commandments

From the second book of Jenike, according to the house of Ajax

1. Thou shalt not follow the ways of the Hittites to smite, or cast heavy blows upon the surface of storage containers, nor even use repeated minor beatings, lest the plague of the Hammerash be upon thee, and thy feed be denied.

2 Thou shalt not poke, prod or enter staves into the orifices of a silo, from the outlet, nor the top surface, nor into any manner of opening into a bulk container, for masses of high walls are not stable, and great misfortune may befall the holder.

3. Thou shalt not gaze upon the open outlet of a silo from whence flow hath ceased or hath not commenced, for thine eyes may be filled with great discomfort and there will be weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth, and thy cup of woe overflow.

4. Thou shalt not inject air without end into stored bulk material, under the penalty of a great flood, who's power to spread widely over the land is mighty to behold.

5. Thou shalt not offer thy arm, finger, nor any bodily protuberance into orifices of a bulk container, for thy part may be removed of harmed to thine everlasting grief.

6. Thou shalt not stand or walk upon the surface of stored material, without due preparation and the most grave precautions for thy mortal soul.

7. Thou shalt not heed the uttering of false prophets and unlearned priests, not the flow aid merchants of Mammon, who will seek to tempt you with worldly goods and proffer diverse and exotic manner of flow salvation with their craven images.

8. Thou shall follow in the teachings of the Holy Utah Scrolls, be they in number 108 and 123 prepared by the scribe Johanson and be mindful of the BSI silo guide.

9. Thou shall measure the strength of bulk materials, and see how they slides on surfaces they meet, so that ye may know their ways. For the behaviour of masses are mysterious, and diverse as the grains of desert sand.

10. There is but one road to follow, the teaching of Jenike and his flow disciples, with their tools for friction and shear, that ye may receive and enjoy the blessing of safe and reliable flow, yea, even unto the final grain.

Verily I say unto you. Follow in these enlightened teaching to escape the dreaded curse of the Stable Arches, to live clean and whole, and to thy full span of four score years and ten. Enjoy the fruits of smooth and tranquil flow behaviour. Your sins of omission will surely find you our, to enjoy no peace of mind and suffer the perpetual damnation of production losses and expense without end. Amen
