Expert Articles

As a backdrop to this subject, I would urge many of you reading this article to go watch on You Tube a video of an interview of Mr. George Wallace with the great Mr. Louis Farrakhan on the Definition of Double Standard and whether or not Nigeria was the most corrupt nation on Earth. My initial title to this article was, "It's done, it's over, it's cooked for America" but I modify the title because I know that Presidents come and go but America would survive the worst of Presidents and reinvent the wheel as it has happened many times.…

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…

America is a fake democracy

Written by
The word fake, that which is not real, has probably been around for as long people are around; however, it gained currency during the 2016 US presidential election cycle. Suddenly, social media was inundated with what they called fake news. All kinds of fake news were spread about Hillary Clinton; she was presented as a murderer who had murdered many associates and anyone who stood on her way just so she gets and retains power. Donald Trump took to calling the stalwarts of America's mainstream media, such as the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN fake…
ABSTRACT: This paper aims at accomplishing two objectives: explain the nature of leadership in broad terms; look at Nigerian leadership and suggest ways to transform Nigerian leadership from its present negative state to positive state. The reader should glean useful information on the nature of leadership and examine whether the suggested solutions to Nigeria’s leadership problem is useful.Throughout human existence people have practiced leadership within their groups, big or small. There have always been people who initiate activities and gather people to do them with them. Indeed, if you observe children even before age ten you will see some of…
This tribute speaks mainly to the star qualities of late Colonel David and how he is so uniquely different from most Akure Chiefs I have been privileged to know. I wrote one on late High Chief Asamo Omojowo Olusanya of blessed memory. This one is different, however, because I am doing it with deep personal regret or guilty conscience. The late Colonel would probably have reached the peak of his career in the Military and earn his promotion to the rank of a Brigadier General in the Pay and Records Squadron of the Nigerian Army if he had not taken…
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,…
After all is said and done, more is said than done - Aesop. It all started with this piece of social media flotsam – A young lady had her dad’s picture as a screensaver on her cell phone. One of her friends saw it and asked, “So you too know this yẹ̀yẹ́ man?” Thanks to Nollywood, the term, “yẹ̀yẹ́ man” has entered pan-African lexicon. It describes a shyster, ne’er do well, a layabout, a consumate liar. A major characteristic of such a person is that they talk a good game but deliver zilch. Rather, they build castles in the air.…
“Ground-breaking, also known as cutting, sod-cutting, turning the first sod or a sod-turning ceremony, is a traditional ceremony in many cultures that celebrates the first day of construction for a building or other project. Such ceremonies are often attended by dignitaries such as politicians, government officials and businessmen”. (Wikipedia) Please NOTE the last sentence - “Such ceremonies are often attended by dignitaries such as politicians, government officials and businessmen”. Another use is, “If something is ground-breaking, it is very new and a big change from other things of its type: E.g. His latest movie is interesting, but not ground-breaking”. But…
If you are looking for just one reason why the racist elements of the Republican Party are supporting Donald Trump despite his pathological lies and delusional personality and collusion with KGB Vladimir Putin of all people, and why they desperately wanted to regain the White House by any means in 2016, this article is a must read for you. If they ever credit a black President, Barack Obama and the Democrats with universal medical coverage for all Americans which they have written off as Socialized Medicine and therefore dead on arrival, they would have forfeited their right to ever win…
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…
The purpose of this essay is to discuss how Nigerians ought to be wise and not foolish and how we Nigerians have to grapple with the prospect of being looked upon as the most corrupt, the most foolish, and the most fucked-up nation led by the most evasive leadership Nigerians have been fools in more ways than one. Trump says Nigeria is a den of kleptomaniacs, stealing from their treasury and enriching their enemies. Leaders of Nigeria, without exception, are authoritarian, using power to oppress and annihilate the powerless. Consider the mass beheadings of Christians in Benue State. We mistake…
Hunger is not an uncommon source of stress in Nigeria. Mrs, Grace Edeh, a 35-year-old mother of three and staff of the National Examination Council, was being quizzed by the Niger state Child Right Protection Agency for burning with hot charcoal the palms of her eight- year old house-maid, accused of stealing meat from the pot. Asked why she committed the offense which contravenes Section 26 of the Child's Right Act against maltreating children, Mrs. Edeh explained that she had ill-treated the girl out of anger as the child was fond of stealing meat from the pot of soup. She…
MY FIRST CALLING IS TO BECOME A VERY POWERFUL SELF TO HELP ME ADAPT TO THE WORLD; MY SECOND CALLING IS TO CHANGE THE INITIAL CALLING TO HAVING NO BIG SELF Ozodi Thomas Osuji All My life I had a calling; that vocation was to seem a very idealistic and powerful person; when I see anything in this world I imagine how to make it better and use magical powers to make it so. This tendency made everything in this world not good enough for me; thus, I could not settle for anything in this world, for I was always…

Could Igbos be the aliens called Anunnakis?

Written by
COULD THIS BE TRUE: ARE IGBOS ALEIN ANUNNAKIS? Ozodi Thomas Osuji Yesterday, I wrote a review of Naiwu Osahon's Theory on the Origin of Human Beings. In it I alluded to his notion that there was a race of aliens who came from a different planet with a leader called God Anu and that these people are called Anunnakis. He said that they brought advanced technology to earth that led to the building of Egyptian pyramids, Sumerian megaliths, Mayan Pyramids, Inca stone stockings etc. The American TV program, Ancient Aliens, usually shown on the History Channel also talks about the…

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…
