I am a universal man with a universal scientific culture

I HAVE TRANSCENDED IGBO, AFRICAN, EUROPEAN, AND AMERICAN CULTURES; I AM A UNIVERSAL MAN WITH A UNIVERSAL SCIENTIFIC CULTURE

    This evening, somewhat listless and depressed, I went to YouTube and listened to my Owerri folks’ music and segued to Fela Kuti’s music (I grew up at Lagos listening to Fela, and, of course, my favorite music, Classical Music…how an African eight year old boy became addicted to listening to Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Handel, Hayden, Wagner, Vivaldi, and the other  great classical composers is a mystery in itself).

    As I listened to music, it dawned on me that all my life I never belonged to any group and its culture; I have always been an outsider looking in at  cultures and wishing that I belong to one of them but was never at home in any of them (interestingly, when I travel I feel like wherever I am is my home…I felt that way in all European capitals and I have been to all of them).

     I transcended Igbo, African, European, and American cultures; I am truly a universal man with a universal scientific culture.

     I wonder how many such persons as me are in this world, I mean people who do not belong anywhere but belong everywhere in the universe?

     I know that I am biologically unique (you should thank your God that you did not inherit my problematic body) and psychologically unique; I have not seen anyone else remotely like me!

     Single handedly, I evolved a spirituality (borrowing from Gnosticism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and other religions and, of course, from my beloved philosophy, Western and Eastern) that although normal folks at present (2022) would not understand what I am talking about but in the future folks would understand it; I have posited a universal spirituality for humankind.

     Only an outsider who belongs nowhere but everywhere could accomplish this monumental task. I came to the world to accomplish this goal. In pursuit of this goal, I have written so many books that I lost track of the number! (The person that came close to my universality is Frederick Nietzsche. I remember my first year at the university giving informal talks on Thus Spoke Zarathustra.)

      As a child, nothing people did made sense to me; I kept looking for something to make sense to me and that took me to voracious reading; I am not boasting if I say that by my teenage years, I had read more books than many professors.

     Upon completing my PhD at an early age, I began jumping from one discipline to another in search of meaning and could not find one. I, therefore, decided to formulate a new thought system that makes sense to me, and to those with scientific orientation.

      Each human being came to this world to do something; I have done mine, undeterred by anything that the world threw at me. I have the type of tenacious spirit that I have not seen in any other human being. This is not a statement of pride but an empirical one.

    What manner of man am I? I can talk physics with the best physicists, psychology with the best psychologists, philosophy with the best philosophers and religion with the best thinkers in comparative religion; indeed, when I go to Hindu and Buddhist temples the Swamis and Roshis have me give talks on the more arcane aspects of their religions. And I do not know how I do it; just raise a topic and the intellectual machine that is my brain begins spilling out information on it. I amaze myself.

    Apparently, nature throws up people like me every once in ten thousand years!

    What I wrote above would seem arrogant and narcissistic except that I am not any of those.

WHAT IS THE NEW THOUGHT SYSTEM THAT I AM TEACHING?

IT IS THAT I AM ALWAYS AS GOD CREATED ME, NOT SEPARATED FROM HIM, HENCE PERFECT AND ETERNAL UNIFIED SPIRIT

     The new thought system that I am teaching is that I remain as God created me, one with him, a perfect, spirit. I am not the ego separated self in body that I made for me and for other people.

     Because I remain as God created me and is always using his mind to create or miscreate, I am responsible for the world I see; I am responsible for all that happens to me on earth because my split mind produced them and made some people that I projected hatred to hate me, attack me, and not give me what I want, money,  jobs; I did what all of them did; if I accept the death of my ego, symbolized by the death of Jesus’ ego, for Jesus is me, and all of us, he is the symbol of God’s one son and his ego’s death means that none of us needs to die any more, but to just love each other, then I dream with love and forgiveness and still see people and love them and they love me.

     When I am tired of dreaming, I know myself as one with God and all creation and no longer see forms but is in the perfect peace of God. (This extrapolation from A course in miracles).
