THE CONCEPT OF IMMORTALITY -analyzing a world without death

Let’s mess around with the idea of immortality, and imagine a world where the concept of death doesn’t just exist; a world where death and dying is an impossibility, and where ageing ceases after a particular time. Let us allow our imagination to run some miles ahead of us, and let’s see what we would come up with. Some time back, I wrote an article on the topic ‘age is nothing but a number?’ Where I gave my opinions on that popular statement, and recently after replying to a comment that was recently dropped on the post, I allowed my mind […]

THE POOR IS RICH, AND THE RICH IS POOR

Allow me to sound like King Solomon for a little while. There is a pattern which I have seen under the sun; at least in my neighborhood, and it never ceases to amaze and baffle me simultaneously. My neighborhood is a blend of the rich and the poor, and their pattern of living is very ironical, in comparison to what is expected considering their financial position. The poor, and there are quite a number of them, seem to be the ones enjoying life and living “lavishly”. They blast their music loudly from their stereos, entertaining the whole street, and they […]

AGE IS NOTHING BUT A NUMBER?

You most likely might have heard the phrase at least once in the course of living out your daily life ‘age is nothing but a number’ and perhaps might have even begun to see some element of sense in the statement too. People argue that the statement holds truth, and for some certain situations, that statement would be considered good news. People choose to believe there is an element of reason in this statement, but then if you’re talking of reasoning, let’s do some of that. In recent times, the phrase has been adopted by a lot of parties, and […]

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF YOU

While what you’re about to read has probably been preached over a million times, and you’ve probably heard it more than once in your lifetime, I’m still going to write on it; hopefully in a different kind of way that would pass the message across as new. Many people want to be exceptional, do great things, become legends and heroes, but oftentimes they make the same mistake of surrounding themselves with the wrong people. They get attached to persons who only want to be normal (in the wrong sense of normalcy). They make friends with people who just want to […]

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOLLYWOOD ROMANCE AND REALITY REALITY ROMANCE

Let us take a solemn break, get out of our heads, snap out of our relationship fantasies, and realistically examine ourselves. Is there a possibility that we are expecting too much from our relationships? Much more than can actually be given? You know, the fascinating thing about Hollywood romance, is how appealing this movies are to our senses. Basically, Hollywood romance to most of us, stands for our idea of a perfect relationship, our dream relationship, and what we want our current relationships to be like, and when our relationships don’t meet this standards, there tends to be a problem, […]

WHEN THE IPHONE WAS THE BOND

I witnessed as these two girls walked into the hall, each trying to establish what they must have believed was their supremacy over other human beings. Their dressings vividly conveyed the fact that they both had a good dress sense and they had access to exotic clothes. Their hair-do sung the song of wealth, and their cologne was charming enough to intoxicate their man target with eerie feelings of love and infatuation. In an environment where everybody around had to be from a wealthy family to even be there, they made it obvious that some wealth was actually wealthier than […]

OTHER NAMES OTHER THAN MOMMY AND DADDY

I am an African, and I come from a part of Africa (Nigeria precisely) where respect is a virtue that is more than necessary, and indoctrinated into every child from birth. Where I come from, we don’t take the issue of respect lightly, and by respect I don’t just mean the type you say with your mouth, like when you look at somebody and say stuffs like: “I’ve got respect for you”. No, not that kind of respect. When I say respect, I mean the type of respect where you have to show it in every action you carry out […]
