About E3 A New Friendship
This episode introduces the first two Thumoslang practitioners. They are two of the most influential people in the development of Thumoslang during its initial years. “Alec Mustafayev, born in 2002, is a teenage author. He was 15 years old when he published his first book, Rebellious. The book did not automatically bring him an income stream, to his surprise. Two years later, for income, he went to work at Cutco, a knife selling company, where he met Jairson Ascencao, born in 1999.” They talk about their first encounters in the YouTube video [From Strangers to Relationship in 5 Meetings | NDBaker93 | S14E17](v=6Zn3d-OLauk).
About E4 Black Mountain of Social Life
Why do many friends leave us after a few years? This episode answers the question and explains one of the biggest and darkest problems in life. If you alone moved to a foreign land where the locals did not speak your language, and you had no prior arrangement for local connections, you would face a black mountain in your social life until you learn how to speak the local language. To a lesser degree, a student at a new school has the same experience, even with fluency in the local language. We all face the black mountain in our social life mainly because we do not speak the language of relationships. Until the 2017 book Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration was published, there was no such thing.

About E8 First Encounter with Love
How should one discharge the power of love systematically? What are the four elements of love? This episode has the answer. Respect for Disrespect, Episode 7, involves the first element of love in its presentation.
In a talk with Nickantony Quach, Alec Mustafayev, born in 2002, learned how to love objectively for the first time. This episode uses their conversation to introduce the four elements of love, first documented by Chapter Six in Thumos: Adulthood, Love & Collaboration. More than just the lesson of how to discharge the power of love correctly, the reader thereby gets to know Alec up close and personally.
A Foretaste of Love, the fourth episode in Trekvella’s Series 1 – Thumoslang Stories, offers the objective meaning of love, whereas The Law of Love, the fourth episode in Trekvella’s Series 4 – Thumoslang Philosophy, explains how love behaves. Both episodes provide the necessary context for this episode. All three episodes together make up the love lesson of Trekvella. Without its knowledge, many parents could not explain the mechanics of love to their children and correctly discharge its power. This secret of love first appeared in Chapter Six of the original Thumos textbook in 2017. Before that, almost all members of our humanity frequently had a hard time with love and, in general, relationships.
