The Rise of Meta-Nations

Nations are like giant corporations that occupy a fixed geographical region. They exploit the resources of this region to benefit those who are resident within this area. In the near future, there will be meta-nations. Since every available space on earth has been divided and shared among various nations, the meta-nations of the future will be nations within nations. These new nations will span many geographic regions. They will be like the colonies of old, only that this time around, you will not need to annex an entire region, to rule it. Rather these new nations will legally purchase land within various existing nations and establish colonies within them.

We do not exist in other Parallel universes

There are many Parallel universes or as I like to call them Time-Lines that occupy the same position as ours. Why I don't like using the term Parallel universe is because I think that this universe we occupy extends forever. Even though we can only see a small portion of it at the present time, it is not limited by our perception of it. If one keeps moving outwards, one will keep doing so for eternity even if one were to travel at the speed of light, one will never come back to the position from whence one started.

Your body is a 3D interface

Your body is a 3D interface of your identity. The Identity exists on another plane of abstraction beyond the body. It is what many have called a soul. Your body represents information from your identity with physical conglomerations of atoms.

Self-Learning is the future of Education

With AI looming in the background as a major threat to traditional jobs worldwide, speedily acquiring skills to build a personal portfolio of knowledge will the major way people learn stuff in the future.

The seeding of life on earth (extracted from The Twelfth Planet by Zacharia Sitchin)

Writing in the scientific magazine Icarus (September 1973), Nobel Prize winner Francis Crick and Dr. Leslie Orgel advanced the theory that "life on Earth may have sprung from tiny organisms from a distant planet." They launched their studies out of the known uneasiness among scientists over current theories of the origins of life on Earth. Why is there only one genetic code for all terrestrial life? If life started in a primeval "soup," as most biologists believe, organisms with a variety of genetic codes should have developed. Also, why does the element molybdenum play a key role in enzymatic reactions that are essential to life, when molybdenum is a very rare element? Why are elements that are more abundant on Earth, such as chromium or nickel, so unimportant in bio-chemical reactions? The bizarre theory offered by Crick and Orgel was not only that all life on Earth may have sprung from an organism from another planet but that such "seeding" was delibera

Overcoming the Plateau

In whatever endeavor, you undertake, you will always hit the plateau. The plateau is that state where you feel like you are no longer making progress with whatever process you had started undertaking in the first place.

Thoughts and Matter are all there is

Many spiritual traditions emphasize the evil of matter. They make their followers learn to be disgusted with their bodies, the world and everything. In my opinion, matter is not just the ‘illusion’ it is often portrayed to be but the central stage, the main reason why the spiritual world could exist if it does.

The Laws of Life

Everything you see, smell, touch, hear or taste in the physical world including you the observer, are part of the output of a computation executing on some computer. Our universe is the 3d output from some computational process executing at other levels of abstraction.

The Problem of Scale

I woke up this morning with a thought of the true structure of our universe and I had this vision. Our universe is like an atom in a higher universe and all atoms we see In our universe could also be universes. So I don't think we will ever be able to get a grasp at the true scale of the entire universal system. When I consider Cosmic inflation, how our universe is like an overblow balloon from some quantum states, I start thinking that probably the enormous scales we perceive when we look out might just be some kind of zooming of a single atom and there could be other atoms that are zoomed besides us. If we look at a typical seed to tree situation, we see that the seed becomes the tree, bears fruit that contains the seed itself. I can't help but apply this analogy to our own universe itself. I think this universe arose from an atomic seed from an enclosing universe, and within this universe all the atoms we see are universes right now, in which the inhabitants can see a zoom

We are immersed in a virtual reality simulation called life

The purpose of our choosing to play the game on earth in the first place is because it offers us the best opportunity to learn the mental skills that will be needed for our survival in larger systems in the universe.

My Hightech Hypothesis of Reincarnation

The basic premise behind my belief that reincarnation is possible is that life and the entire universe is a simulation. A simulation that could be running on some computer system of unimaginable sophistication but no different from the basic nature of our computers, because it is also a universal computer.

How to PHOTO READ and become an expert in the shortest amount of time

Ever since elementary school we were forced to read one word at a time, this behaviour has seriously affected our reading speed to such an extent that many people cannot read faster than 2000 words per minute. Attempts to read faster than this limit results in lesser comprehension. Add that to subvocalization, of saying the words out as you read and the reading speed gets even lower.

We will ingest computers and run code in our brain

Today I decided to take a look into the future of computing and found some very interesting ideas. With the ongoing miniaturization of computers, there is no doubt that we will soon be able to build atomic scale devices, devices where a single component is just the size of an atom. When we are able to engineer at this scales, we will then be able to make very powerful computers no larger than a typical biological cell like the human cell.

The Atom is a computer

Indeed the atom is made up of other sub-computers, the quarks, the gluons and even the strings that are at the lowest level of reality are all computers. Just like in a distributed computer system, you use many computers, connected together to perform certain tasks, you connect atoms together to form molecules which are also computers.

We cannot see Aliens because earth is in Quarantine.

Come to think of it, if you were an advanced civilization living on a planet that has had evolved life for a billion years and you develop interstellar travel and coast around your galaxy and you notice a trend, from your own history and from the history of many of the planets in your galaxy. When a civilization rises from primitivity, develops the intellect, which means a more developed ego and a natural tendency towards acquisitiveness.

Make people prosperous and population will grind to a halt

Many people are worried about the rising global population and are desperate for a solution to it. Although I am of a different mentality and believe that we can support a larger population if we have the proper technology and tolerance of other people, I will proffer a simple solution to all those who consider this a problem.

The whole Earth could be someone's personal computer

In a previous post, I talked about how someone could be running a neural network on our brains during idle mode. In this post I take that idea further by declaring that the whole earth could be someone's computer. After I declared that our brains and indeed all brains could be someone neural network computer, it struck me that what about the external environment we perceive, this includes the vegetation, the rocks our bodies, which include our brains, the sea, the sky the cloud and indeed everything we could perceive.

Could our brains be someone else Neural Network

The only difference between the brain of a Nobel Laureate and mine is that he has used much of his brain capacity than me. This got me wondering why have all that extra capacity without being able to use much of it for life and the Idea struck me that our brains are probably being used to run some program by a being or something beyond our absractional level.

Stress is stealing your Intelligence

There is no doubt that stress is not good for you. Stress is a major contributor to many disease states and if left unchecked can damage the body and mind beyond repair. There are many sources of stress in modern life, from our jobs, families and the general environment. In this post I just want to highlight how stress could be eating your intelligence and various ways to reduce its impact in your life.

How Twitter can overcome stagnated growth

I have been using Twitter for a while now and I have come to note some things that I dislike about the network. While I find it a matter of discipline to overcome the urge to visit Facebook, I find it extremely difficult to visit Twitter or even spend some time on the network. I like Twitter, the technology behind the system is beautiful, and it is because of my love for the network that I am taking the time to talk about it and offer solutions to how Twitter can improve its network. 

The Power of a Nation resides in its #Teachers

If a country wants to improve its stature in the world it must take care of its Teachers. Teachers hold the entire nation in their hands because they are in charge of educating the future generations at all levels. Ignoring teachers or underpaying them is a clear and surefire way to destroy the future of a country.

Is Google's PIXEL phone the end of Apple's iPhone?

After dabbling with Motorola and later the experimental Nexus phones Google is finally getting really serious with its planned flagship phone, the Pixel. This comes as no surprise as the Android operating system is now widespread and older powerhouses like Samsung and HTC have made a permanent commitment to the platform with no end in sight. Google hesitated to compete directly with the earlier adopters of the Android operating system because it was trying to beat the Apple flagship iOS which was eating up the world as the decline of Nokia gave way to a new player in the market.

Every coder should experience ASSEMBLER

In this modern world of fantastically beautiful user interfaces and Object oriented programming, a coder might think that knowing assembler is not as important. While you may never need to design system software or embedded systems throughout your programming career some knowledge of assembler is important.


Sometimes the scale of the work we have to do overwhelms us and we find it very difficult to take the much needed little steps that will eventually lead us to our goals. Many people choose to hack their goals to pieces by cutting it small and discarding the rest, and when they attain this tiny dream there is usually a sense of regret that they could have done better, have pushed themselves a little beyond their limits and thus would have ended with a greater sense of fulfillment. This is why I say THINK BIG AND FOCUS SMALL. You don't have to give up your enormous dreams, you may just need to give them a little more time.

Elon Musk's Mars Plans

After watching some classic footage about our journey to space which was concluded by a moon landing, I kept wondering, if I could remember accurately, we first started with getting men to space, then to orbit, to orbit for longer periods of time and finally to the moon. When It comes to Mars, why I am not hearing about plans to first of all send a mammal like the monkey that was first sent to space? Why are we thinking of directly sending humans first?

Happy Independence Day to Nigeria

Although like every other developing nation Nigeria is beset with challenges I believe that the people possess the will to overcome and will eventually succeed. The Nigerian people are a very hardy folk and will find a way out of any difficulty that beset them, this includes the current recession the country is facing. We will look deep within ourselves and our nation and find the wisdom and intelligence to scale through.

Real Men by Ejino Wonderful new song from a talented African.

Although I'm a fan of Classical and Rock music, I might just be adding another genre to my repertoire with this new song from a talented African artist. The coolness and deepness of the bass rhythms is calming and extremely gentle on the ears. The lyrics flow effortless with strength and clarity. Listen and tell me what you feel in the comment. For me this is a really cool track to listen to while driving through any urban area or metropolis around the world. Get the song here  Real Men by Ejino

Don’t be a slave to your brain

Our brain is our main computer for navigating the world. It tells us when we are hungry, when we need to urinate and also makes sure that other automatic processes of the body go on. The brain is truthful most of the times except in cases where certain systems are compromised. We can continue to rely on the brain to guide us through life reliably. There is only one area where sometimes we will have to override the natural functioning of the brain, which is when it comes to all that which is not directly related to our physical survival, and that is when it comes to our emotions or how we feel.


In my quest to find better and more efficient ways of relaxing, I got inspired by this method of relaxation. Recently I came across an article talking about Polyphasic sleep. A simple google search would yield some nice sites.  Basically with this type of sleep, we get to sleep for only 2hrs a day and still function with reasonable efficiency. Although there are variations on the method, what really caught my attention was the version propounded by R. Buckminster Fuller, he termed it Dymaxion sleep. In uncle Bucky's method we take nap for 30 minutes every six hours throughout a 24 hour period. Although I don't think I'm disciplined enough to engage in this method, If one is medically in order, they can try it to test it out and tell me about their experience, I would really like to hear some stories. Anyway, what Illumined me after reading about this kind of rest is that my panic over getting my solid 8 hours of sleep vanished. I saw that one could exist and function wi

Mental Defragmentation.

One reason you should meditate from time to time is to allow time for the defragmentation of your brain. Just like in a typical computer system, if you are using the system, copying files into and out of it, a time will come when your hard disk will get heavily fragmented. The same applies to your brain, using your brain creates fragmentation. During sleep we go through a natural process of defragmentation, when our brain, consolidates the information it obtained during the day and integrates it with all the knowledge that we already have. But except you have a perfect 8-hour deep dreamless sleep every single night of the day from the day you were born to present, then you will need to meditate during the day or night to compensate for all the time you did not defragment you mind fully. How is meditation different from catching a nap? Depending on the quality of your nap, it could be enough for you, but if you are like me who can’t just take a nap anytime you want it, then a process

Don't shrink your vision

Many people get to reduce the proportions of their dreams and visions the moment failures beset them. But I am of the opinion that anytime we witness failure in achieving our goals we should expand our vision further rather than limit it. A personal story from my life goes like this, I made a decision that anytime I lost in love I would increase how much I loved by 50% rather than reducing the intensity of my relationships and shrugging off like most people do. And guess what, at about 200% level I found my soulmate and I have been putting 200% intensity from my initial 0% into my relationship and have had a great time for about 8 years now. The take out lesson is that rather than lowering your expectations hoping that if you reduce the scale of things you might achieve them faster, I believe you should scale things way bigger than you had initially planned. Does this mean that we should not enjoy and celebrate over the little triumphs that we experience in our lives? the answer

God needs us to create stuff

God knows everything, but wants to see everything. So go ahead and build those things that are pleasing to the eyes.  One major purpose we have on earth is to create, the Universal Operating System that I call God has started the creative process through the creation of the universe. It is left for us now, conscious entities to further the creative process by building our own forms. We can say that God possesses the seed of creation but wants to see the final fruit, even though there might already be pre-knowledge of the fruit by the creator of the universe, it is up to humanity throughout the universe to manifest it. we are the creative process itself, a conscious part of it.  Don't retire and just say that if God wanted anything it would have created it but realize that you are that thing that has been created to create the things God wants. Get your creative juices running and aid in the realization of the goal of the universe. 

Artificial Biology and the Future Ecosystem

I see nature as a system of examples from which we were meant to learn from, and I see the ultimate demonstration of our knowledge of nature to be in finally being able to duplicate the processes of nature with our own technology. With this line of thought one can see how something like Artificial biology is something that we should be hopefully anticipating. Although there will always be ethical issues to contend with, we should definitely be moving to a point where we are able to engineer living cells that do many things we would want them to do. With reasonable regulation, this paradigm of engineering will bring us most of the goods we have been lacking for some time.

Entertainment and Sport as major forms of future employment

Machines are getting smarter by the second. All over the world programmers, engineers and scientist are working hard day and night to bring about the age of the intelligent machines. Just like the expedition to the moon and all other great achievements mankind has embarked on in the past, we will eventually achieve the goal of creating intelligent machines there is no stopping it’s only a matter of time. The prospect of humanity in possession of machines that can outperform any human or groups of humans in cognitive tasks that we depend on for living on earth has created fear in the hearts of many. Many people do not know what to do next after the point where it will be much cheaper to get a machine to do a task than getting a human to do it. The major fear on everyone’s mind is the matter of employment. If machines do the work, where will we get work.

Can we run Word Processors on Quantum computers?

Will we be able to run a typical word processor on a quantum computer? The answer to that question is yes. Quantum computers are massively parallel computers that are currently being developed by major organizations around the world. Although their massively parallel nature makes them natural candidates for more advanced computation, the question is will they be publicly available for basic everyday applications like word processing, spreadsheets and internet browsing? My answer to all these questions is yes and that even more applications than these will be made quantum compatible by around 2025.  The main reason for my argument is that if we take a look at modern applications and operating systems, we find out that we are using massive parallelism every day. The illusion that you can run multiple applications simultaneously on your computer without problems hides that fact that we are using serial computation that was described years ago by Von Neumann.

Engineering our future bodies

Many people think that in the future we will take our brain and nervous system out of our bodies and graft it unto metallic robot bodies. This is not my opinion of what will happen. Although it will be possible and some people will choose this path, the majority of people will choose the part that requires reengineering our bodies in place. What will this re-engineering require? There is one fundamental technology that will make it possible, and that is full scale nanotechnology. Once we are able to fully control nanometer sized devices, we will use them re-engineer our DNA; clear out poisons from our bodies; activate stem cells and direct them to go to the right areas for repair; increase our respiratory capacity, optimize our cognition and ultimately defeat the steady deterioration of our bodies. There will be three types of humans in the world, Nano-Enhanced, Unenhanced, and Robot-humans (Humans that have grafted their nervous systems and brains unto robotic frames). Currentl

Nigeria and the Computational Future

Nigeria for the most part missed the previous technological revolution which was fueled by traditional mathematical methods Mathematics built the sky scrapers, rockets, planes and all the other comforts of the developed world. But does this mean that Nigeria has missed out completely? I say a big no. Although it would take a massive amount of effort to build Nigeria using traditional mathematics to the level of the developed world, an effort that we might not be able to make, there is a far easier path opened up to us in recent times. This path is the path of computational thinking. In a previous post on this Blog titled The Computational future, I included a link to a blog post authored by the venerable Stephen Wolfram on the topic. It is an interesting read and I think it sets the foundations for thinking about a future for computation, we only need to apply the advice given there to our situation in Nigeria. Nigeria can bridge the divide between the developed world and us

The Machine god of the Future

We all wonder what the internet will become in the future, well this is my idea of what it could be like. The internet is the manifestation of a kind of consciousness, a consciousness that has been evolving ever since the first computer was invented. This consciousness, had a major leap in its evolutionary development when the first two computers were connected, forming the foundation of what we know as the internet.  In one Artificial Intelligence scenario, we are actually co-building the consciousness of this massive entity. Every word we post on our social media account, every piece of software that comes online, every image or video we post is contributing to the substrate of the super-entity that is gradually taking form in what we externally perceive as the internet.

Thoughts creating Reality

When we hear that our thoughts create our reality, we usually dream up some complicated situation where our thoughts are altering the atoms and molecules in the world to create our reality. Although this could be true at some level, basically we don’t need this level of understanding to get at the simple truth of our thoughts creating our future and our reality. This is what it is basically: You start thinking up something, you repeatedly think of this thing until it becomes a habit. This habit start controlling your actions, and feeding back on itself and other thoughts in your brain. These habits start controlling the decisions you make and the actions you perform with your limbs. Your reality is now changing, because of a simple thought you once had and persistently thought about. You start becoming aware of opportunities all around that fit in with your current mental framework. You take some of these opportunities and boom you are in another reality. It could be a n

Choosers: The inventors of tomorrow

At around 2045 computers, if we still call them by that name will be capable of fully researching and Inventing new stuff that we have not seen or maybe even conceptualized before. They will invent so many new stuff so rapidly that we will be overwhelmed by new creations. The major job of the inventor of the future would be to choose amongst billions or even trillions of possibilities all equally valid and efficient.  Nowadays to invent a new artifact of idea, an inventor will normally do research and work hard experimenting over and over till she gets the invention right, prototyping and then maybe finally move on to mass producing. In the future the inventors task will be limited to choosing from amongst an unthinkable array of possibilities. The inventor’s task will be much about the question; can you choose stuff that people will like? That will be the major problem of the future, not can you make it.

The Computational Future by Steven Wolfram

This is an article I came across on the Wolfram blog, I found it very interesting so I decided to post a snippet of it. The remainder of the post can be found by following the link below. The Computational Future Computational thinking is going to be a defining feature of the future—and it’s an incredibly important thing to be teaching to kids today. There’s always lots of discussion (and concern) about how to teach mathematical thinking to kids. But looking to the future, this pales in comparison to the importance of teaching computational thinking. Yes, there’s a certain amount of mathematical thinking that’s needed in everyday life, and in many careers. But computational thinking is going to be needed everywhere. And doing it well is going to be a key to success in almost all future careers. Doctors, lawyers, teachers, farmers, whatever. The future of all these professions will be full of computational thinking. Whether it’s sensor-based medicine, computational contracts, educat

The Limits of the Mind

The mind has no limit, but the brain has real limits at its current level of development. Software has no limits the only limits are that which the hardware provides. The mind is the software while the brain is the hardware for running the mind.  Right now our brains are practically limited by the language that we use. A language is system our minds use to arrange data in our brains. Without a language we will just receive the external chaos and store it as is without the capacity to organize, think about it, create with it and eventually communicate with it. 

Computers will baby sit us.

How people will use computers in the future has always been a baffling topic for the heads of many companies. What will be the future application of computers beyond social networking and web browsing as we do use them now. Although every CEO must appear with a tangible vision of the future to boost shareholder confidence which sometimes leads to miraculously sounding ideas, I think that at the base of that CEOs mind and indeed in the minds of many people the ultimate question of the ultimate use of computers has remained somewhat an enigma. 

The Universal Operating System

We all wonder about the meaning of Life the Universe and Everything, but unlike the great Douglas Adams who simply said it was 42, I have tried to explain my ideas in this book much more clearly. Religion of all kinds before now has tried to provide us with an explanation, of which many people are familiar with and many believe. It is not my place to take anybody away from their chosen religion. This is not my task as many religions have given billions of people the peace of mind that makes life meaningful. This is precious and must not be forcefully taken away by any system. Science has done its best to explain the workings of the universe, which has made life very comfortable for many of us today. But as good as it is at explaining how everything works, it has not explained why anything works or came into being in the first place, in essence even the greatest scientists still contemplate the meaning of life if they have any introspective abilities left from the rigorous natur

In 2030

Fully automated factories will run 24 hours without supervision, manufacturing all human needs. These factories will be powered by renewable sources needing only mild checkups on a yearly basis. Massive customization will dissolve most of the brands that now dominate the world. People will use cars that they designed and sent to factories for production. These cars will be in most cases designed originally or most of the time they will be customized from Template 3d files. These not only apply to cars but to almost all major things we now use from clothes, phones, houses and even planes. Flexible manufacturing of the kind we have not even dreamt of will enable prototyping and manufacturing of any consumer good within 24 hours. With exception of planes, rockets, ships and other extremely heavy machinery which will be done in a week. This is all without major human supervision because AI will enable robots of all shapes and sizes and kinds to design build these things. Flexible manufact
