Etiam Tu: Eradicating Hatred is the first installment in the Etiam Tu book series. It is the initial explanation of the philosophy of Etiam Tu as it applies to mankind’s most immediate threat to his continued existence: Hatred. This book seeks to affect change in its readers perception of the actual circumstances that humanity shares.
It identifies the sources of the Hatred we are subjected to, the motivations that create and maintain it, and the numerous forms in which it is manifested. It’s goal is to alert its reader and raise their awareness, by thoroughly exploring this multi-faceted threat; examining each form and humanity’s role in maintaining their existence. Ultimately, educating each reader in an attempt to enlist their voluntary individual efforts to assist in eradicating this evil from the collective human psyche once and for all: forever.
The Tak tse Profit spent most of life observing conditions, circumstances and people. He spent most of his adult life in service to people known and unknown, considering and noting differing factors in life: both in his and other’s. He accepted his commission to share the Philosophy of Etiam Tu: inspired by his young son’s convicting of his heart for having given up on mankind.
First I want to thank Tak Tse Profit for doing the interview with me. Read the interview below and found how philosophical he can be.
1. What is your writing process?
My process begins with contemplation on factors, circumstances, occurrences, probablites, and events I witness or learn of related to the theme of my present work. I observe, note and record the things in life that apply to my subject matter. Once these major notes are collected, more detailed research is performed. This allows me to view the facts more accurately. Even though I already know what it is I want to say and the points I want to get across, I still need a collection of facts and data to support my assertions and pronouncements.
I then distill these notes to the probable structure they will occupy in the final written work. I then arrange these in the order they will appear once I write the final draft. Next I write a new version of each of these notes that is almost exactly as the final version will appear. And then Lastly, I write my final version using the listed notes almost verbatim, with the only changes being to accommodate proper grammar and sentence structure. By doing this multi-phased distillation process I manage to avoid plagerism and ensure that my ideas are only based on thoughts and facts, and that are only supported by the notes and not simply revised versions of them.
2. Who are your largest author influences?
Ayn Rand is very influential on me stylistically, both in my swirling disorenting use of description
and unfortunately for the reader, my use of long aparently run on sentences to keep my entire thought in one line. Another who greatly influenced me is the Apostle Paul, who had a matter of fact way of leading the reader to the only possible correct conclusion, which happened to be his point. I found the works of James Madison and Issac Asimov to be thorough and Logical and of course Aristotle.
3. What is your favorite book?
Though I am not entirely impressed with it, Atlas Shrugged is one of the few books I have ever willingly read twice. As a supposed work of fiction it is not that great, in fact it could have ended at the first part, but as a of the harbinger of her coming Objectivist Philosophy it was quite well written to support the importance of recognizing the corruption infesting humanity mindsets.
4. What genre do you write?
I write philosophy. I will be fleshing out the Philosophy of Etiam Tu until I die. I would like to write fictional short stories but I have no time for those.
5. What is your most recent book Etiam Tu: Eradicating Hatred about?
EtiamTu: Eradicating Hatred is the first subject title in the Philosophy of Etiam Tu. Etiam Tu is a philosophy that establishes the proper manner in which mankind is to prosecute their lives together as the dominant species controlling the acknowledgement of the past and it’s application to the present and future, the current real-time present, and the future existence for all life on this planet. It instructs all people to heed the wise contributes of the many scholars, teachers, scientist, philosophers and Holy men of the past, and change our currently self absorbed outlook on life and interactions with our brothers and sisters in the human family. The issue it most immediately addresses is the need for the human race to immediately focus each individuals voluntary personal effort to recognize and adress the need for removal of the influence of Hatred on their lives and the culture and it’s societies as a whole. This book makes a thorough study of how pervasive the culture of Hatred is and the level of saturation its influence has achieved within all of our lives. Finally, establishing that we must change our ways to adhere to those guielines determined to be most beneficial in the form of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It’s goal is to begin a movement at the level of each individual to remove Hatreds influence on the collective human psyche once and for all, forever.
6. What is the most important takeaway from Etiam Tu: Eradicating Hatred?
We are all brothers and sisters existing in a world where Hatred has achieved a position of dominant influence of our cultures and societies. The world we live in and the hope for future existence for ourselves and our progeny depends on our recognition of the dangerous path we have long been on that will in no short amout of time lead to our utter destruction. Therefore we must all recognize this fact and each act individually to correct this problem beginning with the one person whose perception we can contro: our own.
7. What is the Etiam Tu philosophy?
The Philosophy of Etiam Tu is as of yet undefined in writing. Though it’s existence is real it has as yet, not been written for anyone to read or understand.
8. Is it realistic that humanity can eradicate hatred completely and co-exist in peace?
Yes humanity can realistically eradicate Hatred. It will however not be an easy or quick fix. It will require many years and a nearly world wide movement for the adoption of the philosophy of Etiam Tu, but it can be accomplished. What is required is the individual personal commitment to the importance of reaching our goal. Every great task or goal seems insurmountable initially, but history shows the might of the human spirit and will can accomplish whatever it sees fit to attempt. This applies to all manner of desires whether they be feats of engineering, science, medicine or social issues. We can, once we are committed, accomplish anything.
9. What is the hardest part in writing Etiam Tu: Eradicating Hatred?
The hardest part of writing Etiam Tu: Eradicating Hatred was having to spend nearly 10 years with my mind focused on and immersed in the issue of Hatred. I was very taxing on my character and personality. I am unsure how long it will take me to recover from it.
10. How long did it take for you to write Etiam Tu: Eradicating Hatred?
Start to finish, from the beginning of research to submission for publishing Etiam Tu: Eradicating Hatred was 9.5 to 10 years total in the making. It was a very long process.
11. What are your next writing projects?
The next two subject titles in the Etiam Tu book series are Whose God? and VIPreA that is
Voluntary Individual Perception (rational and emotional) re- Alignment. These two items are seperate and yet related topics. Each is vitally important to the advancement of our goal of achieving a world dominantly influenced by the Philosophy of Etiam Tu; thereby advancing our movement towards creating an existence as near to Utopia as can possibly be reached.
12. How can fans reach you?
Fans can contact me via Twitter @TheTtP, or the Etiam Tu page on facebook, https://www.facebook.com/EtiamTu/ but the ideal manner for fans to reach and interact with me is at the Etiamtu.wix.com/blog. That blog is for that specific purpose. They can find a subject list for the book as well as book trailers in 5 languages and ordering information at etiamtu.com. There are other blogs and a website for eradicatinghatred.yolasite.com that explain the philosophy and posted rebooted content from 2014-2015 on the facebook page, but I would consider these secondary sites.
