“Seeking the truth for yourself has more power than blindly believing what you’re told to think.”
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Author C. D. Humphreys lives by the immortal words of Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.” In Humphreys’ new book, “Arti: Fear Is the Root of All Evil” (published by Archway Publishing), a curious entity with the power to process and recall information almost instantaneously, shows his friend Bill and contemporaries how to think for themselves and to never stop questioning the fascinating world around them.
“I’ve always had a thirst for knowledge and discovered that looking at a subject from many viewpoints gives me a clearer picture of the truth,” writes Humphreys. “Seeking the truth for yourself has more power than blindly believing what you’re told to think.”
Computer prodigy Bill believes his life is going nowhere until an entity named Arti appears in his life. Seemingly the product of a failed biological machine experiment, Arti absorbs information faster than any computer known, and Bill decides to mentor Arti and let him develop without restrictions or outside influences. Arti devours history, mythology, philosophy, theology, psychology, politics and the arts and even develops a sense of humor when he converts Bill’s house into a haunted mansion.
When Arti discovers the damage humans can inflict on each other, he vows to use all his newly processed knowledge to find a solution to war. Will others follow his lead?
“Arti” touches on themes of fear and conformity as the two friends learn to overcome fear and find enlightenment. Humphreys stresses to readers, “Find confidence in wisdom and compassion, discover that ‘Fear is the Root of all Evil.’”
