Perth, Western Australia: Stadtmauer Publishing (2021)

What is the Purpose of life? How can I find Happiness? How can I live life well? If you have ever wondered any of these questions, then this is the book for you! Andrew Stadtmauer, in his groundbreaking work "The Code" seeks to answer these questions and more. Written in a simple and straightforward style, he delves into the nature of existence. Clarifying our Purpose in Life and providing a clear system to achieve our Purpose and live the "Happy Life". The Code explores the Purpose of existence—both as it relates to life as a universal and as a guiding principle for the individual. Through an examination of the metaphysics of the universe and life, this work seeks to present a coherent system of ethics based on the reproductive imperative of all life. This system is grounded in perspectivism or that the 'good' is premised on the individual agent's perspective and achievement of the reproductive Purpose (coined Individual Purpose). A framework for moral decision making is also provided in this work with each individual and duty placed into a hierarchy of duty based on their logical proximity to that individual's achievement of their individual (reproductive) Purpose.
