Notes on the physical and mental sciences

Written by
NOTES ON THE PHYSICAL AND MENTAL SCIENCES Ozodi Thomas Osuji The physical sciences study the physical world (matter, energy, space, time) and do so dispassionately, without injecting their wishes as to how things ought to be. Having understood things objectively, science builds on that knowledge to devise technologies to adapt to the world, and to improve it where improvement is possible. It is clear that in time science would thoroughly understand the human body and use technology (medications, medical devices) to improve it. WE LIVE IN A SEA OF IMPERSONAL INTELLIGENCE, AKA LIFE FORCE People would live in improved bodies…
THE DETENTION OF NNAMDI KANU IS NOW CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT Ozodiobi Osuji In the USA the Constitution stipulates speedy trial for all those held in custody for named offenses. Where it is necessary to keep one in detention for a longer period of time it is generally done outside the country, such as keeping suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba or in Rendition in other countries. I believe that Nnamdi Kanu has been kept in detention for far too long. The Nigerian state needs to try him, and if found guilty jail him and if not release him. We…
If Donald Trump is not stopped, he is soon going to claim to be the American equivalent of King Louis the XIV of France who once proclaimed himself as the State."L'Etat cest moi" he said to quote him verbatim. Donald Trump equates himself to the State at this point, and he is determined to use his bully pulpit to demonize leakers and whistle blowers like no other American President before him. He is actively learning the ropes from Vladimir Putin pretty much like Adolf Hitler had done when he internalized the famous doctrines of "The Prince" by Nicolo Machiavelli. Hitler…
NAIWU OSAHON'S THEORY ON HUMAN ORIGIN A REVIEW Ozodi Thomas Osuji Mr. Naiwu Osahon, yesterday, at Facebook, I read your 2013 essay on your theory of human origin. It has been a long time since I read one of your pieces and it is refreshing to do so, again. I have thoughts on your essay. The essay in no mistakable terms state that aliens are responsible for the origin of human beings. It says that a group of aliens, Anunnakis from planet heaven/Niburu (where is that?), apparently, visited planet earth and beheld evolving animals, especially the various apes and grafted…

What exactly is the real self?

Written by
WHAT EXACTLY IS THE REAL SELF? REMOVE THE FALSE SELF TO FIND OUT Ozodi Thomas Osuji For a long time now I have been talking about the concept of real self. Karen Horney, in her book, Neurosis and Human Growth, talked about the false, ideal self and said that folks ought to live from their real self but she did not define what that real self is; however, she seemed to suggest that if one does not live from the neurotic false self somehow one would live from the healthy real self. Well, she did not clarify the real self…
If one has no fear in him one would have self-confidence and can learn everything and can know everything; fear makes one hesitant and lacking in self-confidence. Therefore, the individual should struggle to reduce his fear level so that he can learn more and know more. To the extent that you have fear to that extent that you impair your learning and doing ability. Fear is part of the human condition; fear is a biopsychological mechanism for alerting us to threats to our physical and psychological selves; it forces us to do what we have to do to take protective…

Make America fearful, again

Written by
Donald Trump's campaign theme was "Make America great, again". I did not quite get it for I had assumed that America is the greatest country in the world. I know that America has some issues to fix, such as getting immigrants to assimilate to American culture. I have written extensively against the nonsense called multiculturalism and diversity. Multiculturalism is a way of dividing a country and a divided country, sooner or later, falls. A country is strong when it is unified by one culture. I talked about using what I called scientific culture to unify America. If you are coming…
America's politics is the politics of fearful cowards; white Americans are fearful cowards; black Americans are fearful cowards; all Americans are fearful cowards. Because all Americans are fearful cowards their politics is the politics of fearful cowards. Americans, black and white are afraid of death and out of fear of death would not stand up and fight for a just society; they allow a few persons to screw them. In Europe their ancestors allowed a few gangsters called aristocrats to screw them; they carried that cowardly approach to life forward to America where they allow a few rich folks to…
History is repeating itself in Nigeria. Dr. Reuben Abati, a prolific columnist an former Chairman of the Editorial Board of Concord Newspapers got the most difficult job he could ever ask for when he canvassed for a was appointed the Chief Media Adviser and Spokesman for Ebele Jonathan, the first Ph.D holder by merit to ever rule Nigeria as President. Dr. Jonathan had graduated from the great University of Port Harcourt where he got his degree in Zoology the study and the management of animals. He wasn't going to be Director of the National Zoo at Abuja but a President…

For your own good please listen to these facts

Written by
If you are a person with normal intelligence you have observed the human condition and know what it is although you may not like it. By the time a typical human child reaches adolescence (age 13) he or she has lived long enough to have observed certain facts about human beings. He has observed that he does get sick and need medications to kill the germs that cause his sickness; he has observed that he needs food to nourish his body and without food he would die; he has observed that he has to live in a shelter otherwise his…

Understanding wthout compassion is a mistake

Written by
My Relationship With Igbos Shows Understanding Without Compassion, A Mistake Ozodi Thomas Osuji I was not always critical of Igbos, Nigerians and Africans. I minded my business until I had unfortunate run in with Igbos and that led me to pay close attention to their individual and collective characters. What I saw I did not like. I wrote about what I saw. What I saw in Igbos is absolutely true; there is no disputing my observations of them. Many Igbos pursue becoming big, important persons; they are that way from their childhood; some of them proceed to become paranoid, deluded…
In eternity, aka heaven there is God and his son (we are the sons of God); God and his sons share one self and one mind; they communicate not by talking but through communing; they know what each other is thinking about and respond to it non-verbally. God and his sons are not in forms, not in bodies; they are ideas; God is the idea of the whole and his sons are the ideas of the parts of the whole. They are made of spiritual light; they are one wave of light. God is the entire wave of light; each…
(The Union Of Secular And Spiritual Psychologies For Real Healing Of People) The Pursuit Of Idealism Is The Pursuit Of Power The Union Of Alfred Adler's Secular And Helen Schucman's Spiritual Pschologies Ozodi Thomas Osuji Karen Horney (1950, Neurosis and Human Growth) said that the neurotic pursues idealistic self; Alfred Adler (1964, The Neurotic Constitution) said that the neurotic pursues power to compensate for his felt sense of inferiority and powerlessness. Helen Schucman (1976, A course in miracles) insists that to heal neurosis the spiritual dimension must be explored. The three psychologists, in my experience, are correct. The idealistic person…

From idealistic politics to realistic politics

Written by
FROM CRITICIZING POLITICS FROM IDEAL POLITICS TO REALISTIC POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY Ozodi Thomas Osuji I am an idealist, I want to be better than I am; in pursuit of the ego ideal I juxtaposed ideal everything and seek to actualize them. I use the ideal standards of my ideal ego to judge American politics and necessarily find it not good enough. From my idealistic perspective American politics is the politics of madmen (both conservatives and liberals are madmen). Now, suppose that America's politics is not the politics of madmen, suppose it is the politics of sane men what would it look…

FAREED ZAKARIA:"Above and Beyond"

Written by
A Television commercial in America describes the Range Rover Jeep above and beyond in performance. In the interest of full disclosure and to avoid being accused of Plagiarism, I confess to borrowing this title from that commercial. Fareed Zakaria as a News reporter and analyst is truly deserving of the Nobel Peace Award in Journalism if the choice were left to me alone. The young man makes a huge impression on me in the way and manner he handles his Global Public Square talk show every Sunday. I am impressed by the high level of research that goes into his…
Igbos who claim that Jews are Igbos, that Igbos started Jewish, Greek, Roman, English, German, French civilizations and, indeed, all human civilizations are clearly demented (they are suffering from delusion disorder, grandiose type). They appropriated the accomplishment of other people and in so doing now are the owners of the accomplishments of those illustrious people; they are no longer primitive Igbos running around the jungle, naked, kidnapping and selling their people into slavery and or holding them hostage for ransom money but are now the illustrious progenitors of great human civilizations. This is how delusion disorder works; the deluded person…
Human beings find it difficult to accept that they are only animals. Thus, despite the evidence that they are animals (their bodies composition is the same as those of animals, trees and other biological organisms, made of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen and traces of other elements) they deny the empirical evidence and keep claiming that they are something more than animals. Generally, human beings posit what they call gods and claim to have come from the gods; the gods are made to look like human beings except that they are not in body (matter, space and time); they transcend…
Igbos Claim To Be Responsible For All Human Civilization Is Problematic Ozodi Thomas Osuji I just read excerpts of a speech by Dr. "Prince" Philip Njemanze (see below paste) in which he claims that Igbos are responsible for practically all human civilization. He said that in his book (which I have not read) he showed that Igbos are responsible for Greek civilization, Roman civilization, ancient Jewish civilization, English civilization and for whatever civilization there was in Africa? He said that the Igbos that started ancient Jewish civilizations are not related to the current Jews of Israel whose DNA has nothing…
I Do Not Know Many Things To Be True; But I Do Know This One Thing To Be True: Human Beings Are Mysterious Creatures Ozodi Thomas Osuji I do not know for sure if there is God or not; all I know about God is what other folks told me about him or what I read in books. If I am honest with me I must say that it seems to me that God is our human construct, that we invented God and turned around to say that he created us. Be that as it may, there is something in…
HOW SHOULD ALAIGBO REPUBLIC BE ORGANIZED AND GOVERNED? Ozodi Thomas Osuji While welcoming the Acting President of Nigeria, Yemi Osibanjo to Owerri, on February 15, 2017, the Governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha noted the federal absence in South Eastern states; he said that the federal government has not been building infrastructures, industries or anything for that matter in the South Eastern states, aka Igbo land. He decried this neglect of his region and called for Igbo land to be given its fair share of economic projects. The Governor, Indeed, informed us that only one indigene of his state has…
The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Washington DC Dear President Donald J. Trump, I am one of your subjects and a proud American along with over 300 million others plus additional 11 million (or so) illegal aliens. We all love our America. But our love pales in comparison to your love which you have demonstrated in the many years you have invested in American politics, albeit from the sidelines. You devoted less than your full attention to the Trump Empire of billions of dollars in 2015-2016 and now you have practically abandoned your empire to serve the country at a…
I put the blame for the election of Donald Trump, the craziest and the phoniest President in the 240 years of American History on the American Constitution which is crying for the most fundamental amendment to its provision on the Electoral College Malady. For you to full understand the tragedy of the Trump Presidency, you have to watch Alec Baldwin of Saturday Night Live and Steve Colbert who replaced the great David Letterman of CBS News. I watch both programs every week and I could barely hold my breath. America is in big trouble. I make this statement as an…

Could Biafra be the land of criminals?

Written by
DANIEL AKUSOBI PLEASE PONDER THE FOLLOWING FACTS OF YOUR IGBO WORLD Ozodi Osuji Daniel Akusobi, your below response to Jerome is evidence of my belief that you are capable of rational thinking if only you choose to do so. In your response you noted that the reason, among others, why many Igbos are hell bent on obtaining money, to the extent of doing criminals things for it, such as selling drugs in countries where arresting them means hanging them, stealing from their people and kidnapping their people and holding them hostage for ransom money is because of Igbo society's structure.…

Why there are criminals in our world

Written by
I UNDERSTAND WHY THERE ARE CRIMINALS IN OUR WORLD Ozodi Thomas Osuji Lately, at Facebook, I have been exchanging words with an African American guy called Marvin Bryant. His perspective can be summarized thus: white folks are no good, they did terrible things to black folks; black folks are always good and can do no wrong; in so far that black folks do wrong it is the fault of their social situation; the white man placed black folks in untenable social situations, such as inner city ghettos, makes sure that they have no jobs and money and make them hate…

The Trump Presidency may not end well

Written by
I am not necessarily a believer in karma but something tells me that Donald Trump's presidency may not end well? Somehow, I believe that there must be a payback for the man because of what he did to Obama; I am talking about the Birther thing. Trump jumped unto the Birther movement and doubted that Barack Obama was born in the USA. He knew too well that he was born in Hawaii but he chose to make hay of the doubt raised by racists who did not want a black man to be the US President. That birther thing was…
