THE MEASUREMENTS OF DECAY By K.K. Edin (Q&A)

I had the privilege of doing a Q&A with K. K. Edin who’s book The Measurements Of Decay is both fascinating and thought provoking. He brings together Sci-Fi, Philosophy and History to give us an epic tale set in the far future.
Author Bio:
K. K. Edin was born in New York and grew up in the UK, France and parts of the Middle East. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy and Political Science and a Masters in Philosophy from Boston University. He currently lives in Boston and The Measurements of Decay is his debut novel. Find K.K. Edin on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and at www.kkedin.com.
 
The Measurements of Decay [Metempsy Publications] is now available in hardback, paperback and e-book formats on Amazon.
Book Synopsis:
In the far future, Earth’s nearby star systems have been colonized. Outfitted with a device that allows them to escape into hallucinations at will, people spend most of their time withdrawn into their own minds. Tikan Solstafir, a renegade who refuses the illusory life enjoyed by others, lives in self-imposed exile on a starship. When a mysterious enemy attacks the ship, Tikan embarks on a mission to destroy the galactic tyranny and liberate humanity from its own dreams. Meanwhile, in the 21st Century, a disillusioned philosopher believes that humanity s collective misery originates in people s failure to communicate with others and make sense of the world. Growing increasingly misanthropic and monomaniacal, he proceeds on a hermetic quest to save humanity from itself, while also succumbing to his own moral decline. As these stories intertwine, a young girl reappears through various epochs, fleeting through Ancient Greece, Medieval Norway, Bolshevik Russia, among others. Unbound by time, Sielle has formed few attachments. Eventually thrust into Tikan’s world, she becomes unwillingly entangled in a political scheme spanning centuries. At once a tortured love letter to philosophy and a space opera spanning centuries, it is a novel of ideas wrapped in a cautionary tale.
Q&A
1. What inspired you to write The Measurements of Decay?

The novel draws from many inspirations. Too many, perhaps. I began writing it when I was 20 years old and steeped in the classics of philosophy. I recall that the main themes arose out of a series of thoughts I had at the time in response to Descartes’ Meditations on First Philosophy. Part of Descartes’ work seemed to imply to me, at the time, that absolute certainty about something can only be achieved in virtue of being that thing. Obviously the only thing one can be is oneself. With this as the criteria for knowledge-at-its-best, the implication, therefore, is that anything other than oneself is subject to doubt. But what would it take for that certainty and those conditions to extend to other things and people, and even form the foundation of science? What political and moral implications would this have? The logical thread quickly ended up somewhere between absurdity and nightmare. In other words, perfectly suitable for the crucible of science
fiction. My study of philosophy continued to inform the novel, especially as many problems related to the tension between objectivity and subjectivity became apparent. It is one of the key conflicts of philosophy: How can the individual make sense of being in the world, which is shared by others? How does our limited and unique perspective impact our moral considerations, our ability to be scientific, or our understanding of
consciousness and being? Moreover, how can we make sense of duty, freedom and knowledge in the shadow of this subjective-objective tension?

These are the themes I wanted to address, but I wanted to address them in grand, Melvillian style. I wanted to combine the speculative power of science fiction, the psychological investigation that authors like Dostoevsky or Hamsun perform, and those problems of philosophy that occurred to me while I was a student. And I wanted to create a beautiful, if dark and risky, work of it.

2. What are some of the themes readers can expect to discover in The Measurements of Decay?

At the most general level, the core themes revolve around and arise from the abstract issues I described above. These ideas are very abstract sounding, but I think most people are familiar with them at some level. I have endeavored to test a lot of ideas, push them to their limit, and see what the result is. For me, that is the heart of science fiction, the power to speculate to extremity.

Here below are some of the philosophical themes in the novel, among many others:

Empathy and Understanding

There is an old saying in French, which can be translated as: “To understand all is to forgive all.” In great part, the novel is an analysis of that idea. What would it take for us to completely understand each other, and therefore forgive each other perfectly?

Wouldn’t that be an ideal scenario? To understand each other so well that we treat each other exactly the way we would treat ourselves? Ok. So what would it take? What would constitute perfect understanding? You would have to know the entire history of the person, objectively, the way a scientist might describe their whole life in a lab report. It would require knowing all of their inner thoughts, too––their subjective life. All the reasons they gave themselves for their actions. All of their ideas, emotions and experiences, the way they experience the world–––plus, you would also need their whole context, so you would need to know entire history of the world. So it’s impossible. Right.
But not in science fiction… or is it?

Evil

Piggybacking off of the theme of empathy and understanding, the theme of evil is core to the novel. Aside from classic moral questions such as: “Do the ends justify the means?” “Do consequences or principles dictate morality?” “What defines a Good Life?” and so on, I wanted to explore the theme of evil in relation to understanding and forgiveness. What are the limits of forgiveness? Let’s say you can understand everything about a person, but they have committed some truly reprehensible acts… can you forgive them? Can you forgive Hitler, after experiencing the whole of his life and understanding perfectly what led him to his decisions? You might say no, but consider that to understand his life the way he understood it, to be in the cockpit of Hitler’s life, so to speak, you might not have a choice but to commit the same acts he did. Although perhaps not, depending on what we build into the thought experiment. Many people loath themselves, of course, but maybe they don’t fully understand themselves. It can get quite tricky.

The novel takes that French proverb to its limit and tests it. We have a character who, by the same token that he recognizes all of the epistemological, metaphysical, ontological and moral issues at stake, is as vile, immoral, and contemptible as it gets precisely in virtue of his knowledge. That is the real question for the reader. How much can you stomach? How much are you willing to forgive, knowing a maximal amount about a person? And if you can’t, then is understanding the key after all? Can evil survive both total knowledge and forgiveness?

There is a nice discussion of the limits of forgiveness in Dostoevsky’s The Brothers
Karamazov, in Book V Chapter 4: Rebellion, for anyone interested.

Self and Identity

What do we know best? Most would probably say ourselves, since we are most familiar with ourselves. Ok. So should that be a model or standard for the extent to which we would like to understand others? That understanding others as well as we understand ourselves would be the highest achievement of understanding?

There are obviously problems with being able to understand things other than yourself. You are separated by time and space from literally everything exterior to you, and experience them by way of a limited perspective. You can’t have a God’s-eye- view of things. You cannot know the thoughts of others, etc., etc. But what about yourself? Your thoughts are subject to time. Your body is distinct from your mind. Insofar as you are divisible in any way, you are not a self-contained totality. You participate in the world. So that problem folds into the greater problem of knowledge.

There is a lot in the news these days about identity. I think that’s a candidate for the successor to the age of information––the age of identity. That, in a way, is part of what I wanted to bring to its logical conclusion by way of science fiction. In the novel, metempsies allow you forget your identity, and experience existence, virtually, as another person, another identity––but mediated through your own self. It’s a bit loopy,
structurally.

It’s the dream of many people today, to be able to wholly construct your own identity to the point where its artifice (the creation of it) does not intrude upon its perceived authenticity. I think it may also be the logical conclusion to storytelling, the way we get invested in characters, sympathize with avatars. Video games and movies push that avatar-sympathizing further. What’s next? How can we become Iron Man, Captain Ahab, or Harry Potter, and thereby experience their story as they do, as opposed to mere observers? Would it still be a story?

Knowledge

There are many battles in philosophy around what is called epistemology––the study of knowledge. There are many opposing traditions, theories and systems out there, so while the novel doesn’t cover them all, it does cover what I consider to be two big, opposing categories. One view says negativity is a part of the truth, the other view says that the truth must exclude negativity. For instance, is a true view of a chair one that covers all of its angles? Or is it an inherent part of a true perception of a chair that we cannot view it from all angles at once? For those interested, this issue is related to the conflict between Hegelian and Aristotelian logic.

Technology

Dovetailing with the philosophical problems the Narrator is facing, the novel depicts a society that has tried ways put a band-aid on these issues. In many ways, the society of the future described in the novel is a logically extreme conclusion to the societies we live in today. That is, one structured around silent A.I. and smart phone-like technology, but motivated by the underlying philosophical problems we face. Our phones already feel like extensions of ourselves. It’s only a matter of time before they are permanently fused to our minds. What will that look like? How will that relate to the problems of consciousness, language, communication, thought, and human interaction? How about entertainment? Fantasy and dreams are core components of the human psyche. What will they look like, structured by such technology?

Language

The principal means by which we communicate with others is language. We tend to see language as an invisible medium, a clear window to our thoughts, and to those of others. But language is a part of our thoughts. It is a part of that which it helps us to access. It thereby frequently obscures and complicates just as much as it clarifies, at every level, from philosophical theorizing to interpersonal conflicts. We misunderstand each other and talk past each other frequently as a result of language, and not simply in spite of it. The theme of language in the novel also comes out to a large extent in the question of whether or in what way our thoughts and sentiments are truly separate from language. Do I have thoughts first, which are subsequently expressed in language? Or are all my thoughts necessarily linguistic? If not, what does that look like? What is a non-linguistic thought?

Poetry versus Logic

The tension between poetry and logic as media for truth is another theme that is very inherent to the novel, precisely because of the style I have chosen. Plato suggests in the Republic that poets should be outcast from the ideal society. There’s a reason he, a philosopher, brings that issue to the table. If poetry is indeed the language of emotion, then does it obscure our rational understanding? How does poetry, if at all, deliver truth? The novel’s narrator is as much a poet as he is a philosopher. Why is that? What are the tensions that arise for him as a result?

3. What advice would you give readers interested in reading The Measurements of Decay? How should they approach the novel?

The reader should approach The Measurements of Decay with a degree of patience. I have written the novel in an ornate style that bucks the minimalist trend. That alone means paying more attention to the language and not racing through the plot, which is itself somewhat complicated and tangled in other aspects of the writing. The reason for this is that the language is itself a key part of the story, for philosophical, thematic and character reasons. The overarching plot, meanwhile, unravels quite slowly. Many readers have expressed that they found themselves having to accept a degree of ambiguity through the first half or so, but being enthralled by the plot thereafter and appreciating the upward climb retroactively. In addition, the philosophical content of the book can be quite intense, especially for someone without a background in the subject, though not, I think, impossible. Lastly, I would say that the reader should treat the Narrator as a
character with his own idiosyncratic worldview, use of language and will. Much of the novel is an exploration of his psyche, his evil, and his philosophical troubles. To understand the novel is to attempt to understand the Narrator.

4. Who are your favorite authors you like to read and/or follow?

Herman Melville, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Cormac McCarthy, Thomas de Quincy, Dan Simmons, Alfred Bester, Ursula K. LeGuin, Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, Gene Wolfe, Edgar Allan Poe, H. P. Lovecraft, J. R. R. Tolkien (particularly The Silmarillion).

5. When do you find the time to write?

Usually late at night, but not necessarily. I tend to write whenever I have at least a solid hour in the day, and all other tasks have been completed.

6. Who and/or what has influenced your writing style?

I am attracted to beautiful and daring language, intellectual ideas and poignant characterization. The novels that I enjoy the most tend to be ornately written, poetic and philosophical in some degree.

In terms of fiction, I draw from the psychological investigations of Dostoevsky, Knut Hamsun and Thomas de Quincy, the immortal masterpiece that is Moby Dick, the speculative powers of science fiction from Alfred Bester and Ursula K. LeGuin, and the magnificent prose of Cormac McCarthy.

Most of the ideas I like to base my themes on are drawn from the history of philosophy, though not always.

7. What are you working on now?

I have ideas for three more novels, each very different from the other, and different to The Measurements of Decay. I am also focusing very much on my professional career and my personal life, with much less time for writing, at the moment.

8. Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?

Decide from the beginning if you want to write mainly for artistic or entertainment or commercial reasons. If you decide to write for mainly artistic reasons, your standard should be nothing short of an absolute masterpiece. You will in all likelihood fail, but it will probably force you to increase the quality of your work. Aim for the stars, as they say.

In terms of writing itself, I like to think of the first draft as a process of excavating marble from a quarry. After the marble is prepared, you can begin sculpting. I also do not believe in inspiration as a necessary requirement to writing. I have found that inspiration only makes starting easier, or helps in generating ideas. It provides no noticeable increase in quality.

If you are writing for purely artistic reasons I would also avoid any business related information about the world of publishing until you are finished with at least the second draft. The knowledge may poison your vision. On the other hand, if you are writing mainly to entertain or for commercial reasons, make sure to read up as much as possible about the publishing world, and, in particular, about the constrictions of your respective genre.

You’re on your way to a birthday dinner that your friends have thrown for you. When you arrive, your favorite author is having dinner by himself or herself and asks you to sit with them, before you even see your friends or they see you. You have two choices: (1) You can sit with the author but can’t tell your friends that you’ve abandoned them for three hours, or (2) Meet your friends and lose the only chance you’ll ever have to talk with the author. Pick one or the other — no exceptions or communication to your friends to tell them about the author — and explain why.

I would in all honesty talk to the author because my friends know how much this author means to me and I know they would absolutely understand why I ditched them to spend time with the author!

You’ve got an opportunity to spend a few hours alone “in your bedroom” with a character from any book you’ve previously read. The character tells you that (s)he would like to lock the door and spend some alone time with you. What book and character is it, and do you decide to enter the room and lock the door, or tell them you aren’t interested?

I would pick Hermione Granger because we would have a lot to talk about and yes lock the door I don’t mind!

If you could turn any male character from one of your favorite books into a female character (or change a female into a male) in the book or book series, which one and why?

I would change Holden Caulfield to Hester Prynne so he can see what real problems and suffering look like because in my opinion he is a whiny little spoilt brat.

What blogger currently on your follower’s list (meaning they follow you too) do you admire the most and why?

Well there are many:

Shay-lon– because she is one of the strongest people I know who breaks barriers every day!

Elaine-She is so sweet and amazing at everything she tries especially art!

Opher- He is one of the smartest people I’ve ever talked to and he has seen amazing things!

inkgirlandwords- She is one of the most driven people I read as well as the most sensitive and caring!

Shweta- She is so sweet and smart and has a way with words!

James J. Cudney IV- He is super interesting and I really enjoy reading his reviews!

And I admire everyone I follow for being excellent writers!

If you could change any one decision your favorite book character made, what would it be and why?

I would do whatever I had to do and change whatever I had to change to save Fred Weasley.

If you could pick 1 character from a book and 1 character from a TV show you watch (that is NOT based on a book) to be in a relationship together, who would you choose, and why?

Tina Fey’s character Liz Lemon from 30 Rock and Elizabeth Bennet from Pride And Prejudice- they seem like a very good match!

It’s your last day on Earth. As you are about to cross that final finish line, a mysterious shadow appears, giving you a choice: (1) You can go move forward to whatever comes next for you [based on your own spiritual or religious beliefs], or (2) you can become a character in a book series and exist permanently doing whatever that author chooses to do with you in the book. Which do you choose, and if it’s option 2, reveal the book and author.

I would choose the second option and the author would be J. K. Rowling and the book would of course be Harry Potter!

If you could steal a pet from someone in any book you’ve read, but had to replace it with a friend’s pet (meaning they wouldn’t ever see their pet again), would you do it? If so, explain the who and why.

No i definitely would not do that to my friend! I know how much my friends pets mean to them!

If you could turn someone from your real life into a character from a book, who from your life, who in the book and why?

I would turn my sister into a book character just to see what happens (I can bring her back right??)

Post a picture of the cover of a book you read in 2000 and the book you are currently reading now. (Note: if you weren’t alive in 2000, pick the first book you ever read and tell everyone what year it was from).

Image result for go set a watchman

Your favorite character (under 18) needs a place to stay for 3 months and asks you if (s)he could stay in your spare room (yes, you have one for the sake of this question). Who is it and what is the reason (s)he needs to stay with you?

It would be Liesel because she is running from the Nazi’s in The Book Thief
