THE IMPLICATION THAT LIGHT IS NEITHER WAVE NOR PARTICLE BUT BEHAVES AS THE ONE THAT THE OBSERVER WANTS IT TO BEHAVE FOR HIM Ozodi Thomas Osuji Yesterday, finally, I grasped the implication of the double slit experiment. In case you do not know about it, if you have a hole, a slit on a board and shoot light at it the light would go through it as a particle and leave a mark at a paper placed behind the hole; on the other hand, if you have two holes, slits and shoot light at them the light splits into two…

The world is our fantasy

Written by
From Ozodi Osuji's Daily Journal: Let me say this up front; individuals have different levels of intelligence. If you do not have superior IQ, anything above 132, please do not bother reading my notes, for all you are going to do is confuse yourself. Only the brainy can follow my cogitations. I write for brilliant, not for average and above average folks. EVERYTHING IN THIS WORLD IS FANTASY FOR THEY ALL CAME FROM AND RETURN TO NOTHINGNESS Build a mansion, say, the Versailles or the pyramid. It is built of rocks, sand and cement. Over time those would be worn…

God is our collective real self

Written by
GOD IS OUR COLLECTIVE REAL SELF AND DOES NOT EXIST APART FROM US Ozodi Thomas Osuji To Eze Paschal: Today is the last day of spring semester. I was on campus entering students' grades into the computer. I got done around 11 AM and headed on home. I got home and read some of your posts on quantum physics, an area of interest. I realized that you are at the gate of knowledge. Quantum mechanics brings the physical sciences to the door of spirituality; that is what it did for me, anyway. I went to my computer and typed the…
Please see if this essay makes sense to you; if not forget it and move on to what makes sense to you; each of us is in a different place in our evolution in space, time and matter. THE FEAR OF DEATH IN MY SUBCONSCIOUS MIND MAKES ME DO EVERYTHING THAT I DO ABSTRACT: This essay combines scientific and spiritual psychology to give a fuller account of human behavior. The West emphasizes only scientific psychology and since human beings have a spiritual dimension thus gives only a partial account of human behavior and cannot heal any one through its psychotherapy;…
A few weeks ago, while at Barnes and Nobles bookstore, I stumbled onto a five books series called "The Law of One", by Ra. I bought them. I was not really expecting to read an earth shattering material; the title seemed like something I could kill time with. As I read the book(s) light went on in my mind. They helped me to clarify what I already know about reality and have written about. The books did not teach me anything new about the oneness of reality but helped me to put my metaphysics in a more organized manner. The…

The Igbos Are Gods

Written by
Some say the Igbos are paranoid, meaning the Igbos imagine things that are not really there. Others say the Igbos are arrogant, suspicious, fearful, mistrustful, obsessed with money, or have unreasonable business practices. Our observation is overwhelmingly significant. The Igbos have to be gods. Though no Igbo has been elected President of Nigeria, one day someone will. That an Igbo would eventually be President of Nigeria is a prospect that is as inevitable as the appearance of daylight after the darkest night! The Igbos are gods. Igbos are a breed by itself, a seriously misunderstood variety. Being the gods they…
I do not know about other persons but I know about me. From my earliest memory (age five) my mind was always thinking (brooding) about one thing or another. I do not recall ever having a mind with no ideas and concepts in it. If I see something I think about it. I judge it as good or bad. I do not simply see it and let it be without having an opinion of it been good or bad. When I judge people good and say so they obviously like it than when I judge them as bad. But the…

God and the self-concept

Written by
Many smart persons appraise the Christian and or Muslim conceptions of God and deem them too infantile to be bothered with and declare themselves atheists or agnostics. What these people do not realize is that it is us, human beings who define what God means to us. If how the Semitic race, Jews and Arabs, define their gods do not make sense to you then try to define God as you think that he is. Your definition of God is your definition of your real self. If you deny the existence of God you deny the existence of your real…

Karma and the law of one

Written by
Karma And My Thoughts On The Law Of One Ozodi Thomas Osuji Each of us is born with a fate, a fate he chose and that chose him given his past lives behaviors. Reincarnation is real; we have recycled through this world several times. During each life time we do things that benefit or hurt other persons. We build positive and negative samsara. What we did in past life times' work together to dispose us to choose to be born in certain biological forms and social circumstances (and in what country and race). The body and society we are born…
AA did incredible loveless things to me and those made me feel that she humiliated my ego (my ego needed to be humiliated). She used her legal system to essentially enslave me to supporting her. She had no understanding of my plight as a black man in racist America and simply felt that if her racist judge said that I have obligations to her that I had to do them or else I am punished. I felt that she was heartless in her behaviors. I felt that what she was doing was wrong and concluded that she is going to…
IF EVERYTHING IS MADE FROM LIGHT THEN EVERYTHING IS LIGHT; THE QUESTION IS WHAT LIGHT IS? Ozodi Thomas Osuji Contemporary cosmology, building on quantum physics, tells us that the universe began in light. 13.7 billion years ago a point of light, a photon, and a size smaller than the period at the end of this sentence emerged from nowhere. That point of light contains everything in a unified state (called singularity). That point of light that contains everything in potentiality exploded and shattered into infinite particles, photons. The photons immediately united into quarks and electrons. Quarks combined into protons and…
ALWAYS LOOK AT ANY ISSUE FROM TWO PERSPECTIVES: 1. THE EGO'S PSYCHOLOGICAL(SCIENCE/REASON) PERSPECTIVE And 2. THE HOLY SPIRIT'S LOVING PERSPECTIVE (IRREASON) Both perspectives are correct on their terms; the ego is adaptive to the world and the Holy Spirit's perspective responds to a different interpretation, from the perspective of ego transcending, irrational perspective of love. THE CONTRADICTION OF SPIRIT (LOVE) AND MATTER (HATE) The contradiction between spirit (love/union) and matter (hate/separation) cannot be eliminated while people live in body. As long as people live in bodies they will have spirit and the capacity for love but also have the influence…

Why Africans will eventually rule the world

Written by
BY THE END OF THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY BLACK PEOPLE WOULD BEGIN TAKING OVER THE WORLD Ozodi Osuji By the end of this present century, twenty first century, black persons would begin taking over control of this world. The takeover will take several hundred years, if not thousands of years before it is completed. This is not a prediction but a statement of what is inevitably going to happen; by the end of the twenty first century Africans would have acquired the basics of scientific culture and would be ready to make civilizational moves; they would simply take over Europe, Asia,…
LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT IN LIVING AND TEACHING EGO OF LOVE Ozodi Osuji If one completely lets go of ones ego one would exit from this world; this is what forgiveness accomplishes; if you forgive what is done to you by other people you overlook the reality of this world, the attack and defense reality of the world and become defenseless. If you are defenseless (forgiving) you escape from this world of attack and defense and first return to the awareness of a different world, the world of light forms and, ultimately, to the formless world of light (God, and his…

Live your own independent point of view

Written by
SEEK AND LIVE YOUR OWN INDEPENDENT POINT OF VIEW Ozodi Thomas Osuji Here are some truths that cannot be denied; if you look at Africans they seem uneducated and ill informed; they seem to be living in a different century, may be in the thirteenth century (before the age of discovery and science); their views are simply not up to par with what you would expect in people living in the twenty first century who are educated in the scientific method and are up to snuff on modern science. Many Africans talk in religious terms (Christianity and Islam) that, at…

Accident or Determinism

Written by
COINCIDENCE OR SERENDIPITY OR SPIRITUALITY? Ozodi Thomas Osuji This morning I woke and out of nowhere it occurred to me that since the Nigerian state has kept Nnamdi Kanu in detention for an extended period of time and, apparently, plan to keep him there much longer and there is nothing that he can do to get out, I decided to write to him a letter urging him to use his time in prison to write a book delineating what his Biafra struggle is all about. Moreover, it would help him kill time if he did that writing. I also suggested…
WHAT TO DO WHEN THE MOTIVATING DESIRES OF YOUTH DISAPPEAR Ozodi Thomas Osuji In youth we have pleasant illusions that we have it in us to change the world. With that desire in us we are motivated to accomplish great things. We go to school and obtain useful education. Thereafter, we secure jobs, marry and have children. We devote ourselves to trying to actualize our youthful desires. Our youthful desires pretty much take us into our mid-thirties. Thereafter, one begins to realize that the world is not for one to change it and that despite ones ideals that the old…
THE WORST MISTAKE MADE BY THOSE INTO METAPHYSICS IS TO IGNORE PHYSICS Ozodi Thomas Osuji I have read where those who are into metaphysics and new age religions deemphasize physics. This is a mistake. We on earth live in a three dimensional universe; we live in space, time and matter. Our bodies are made of matter (64 of the 92 elements in nature are found in our bodies). We walk in space and time. Simply put, we are part of the world of space, time and matter; those three do affect our bodies. Our bodies do get sick (from shear…

Fear is never justified

Written by
Fear assumes that one is a body that can be harmed and destroyed; ultimately, fear is predicated on fear of death. A course in miracles says that we are not body, that body is a dream figure we take on in our dream that we are separate from God and from our real self, the son of God. It says that our true self is eternal, permanent and changeless. It says that we choose to separate from God and each other but could not do so in reality, eternity, in unified spirit self and went to sleep and seem to…

Anger is never justified

Written by
ANGER IS NEVER JUSTIFIED, SAYS A COURSE IN MIRACLES (The Journey towards enlightenment) Ozodi Thomas Osuji MY ANGER IS ROOTED IN MY SENSE OF ABANDONMENT CAUSED BY MY PHYSICAL ISSUES In childhood I kept quiet and mostly stayed to myself but if you dared to tell me what to do I asked you who the hell you think that you are telling me what to do; If you tried to force it, such as when my uncle Bernard insisted that I go to do farming for our grandmother I felt angry and simply refused to go to their farm to…
Listen, if anything that I do not want to experience can happen to me, say, you can do bad things to me that I did not want to experience, you can say whatever you want the universe is unfair to me and if the universe is unfair God does not exist. God can only exist if there is justice in the universe. Justice in the universe requires me to experience only what I want to experience. If Arab and white folks can choose and enslave Africans and if some Africans can kidnap some Africans and sell them to Arabs and…
THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE DOES NOT EXIST; IT IS A DELUSION AND HALLUCINATION IN OUR MINDS WE LIVE IN A PRETENDED UNIVERSE Ozodi Thomas Osuji Space, time and matter do not exist; at best you can say that they have temporary existence, as in a dream; that which is a dream and has a temporary existence does not exist. Only the eternal, permanent and changeless has real existence. During the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago, the universe came from nothing and therefore is nothing; nothingness does not exist and has no worth. There are no galaxies, stars, planets, people, animals,…
The conditions of my living is depressing; I inherited a mitochondria disorder, Cytochrome C Oxidase Deficiency, Spondylolysis and Mitral Valve Prolapse that made my life, from birth a miserable one. I felt weak all my life and was almost always in low grade pain. People enjoy food but eating food made me feel miserable and I have to go lie down to recoup some energy; people play sports but sports gave my body so much pain that I had to avoid them. All said the condition of my living is depressing and not something to look forward to. Thus, I…

There are precognitive dreams

Written by
Dreams can tell us a lot about who we are, our personalities; they can also tell us something about our future, precognitive or prophetic dreams. Some of my dreams tell me a lot about who I am and about my future. In this essay, I will examine some of my dreams that I believe told me something about my personality and those that told me something about my future. The earliest dream that I remember occurred the year that I began kindergarten and that would make me five years old. In the dream I was crawling in the middle of…

Transforming the ego to the ego of love

Written by
As long as a person is in our three dimensional world of space, time and matter he must have an ego. The best that can be hoped for is for one to have a humble ego while one is in the world of egos. One can humble ones ego by purifying but not eliminating it. If one purifies ones ego one will attain some peace and joy. The ego is purified by making it an ego of love. The ego of love occurs where one retains ones ego and uses it to love other persons in egos. The nineteenth century…
