The Legendary Grasshopper: The One Who Led the Child into the Thorns
Ejike (4 year old boy), and family: Mother, Father, 7 year old sister, and three younger sistersThey are in the kitchen, and Mother is making Ejike pound the beans using a wooden bowl and pestle. Upset, Ejike wandered off. He opened the wooden door that led into a small cassava Farm–he would rather use his time to look for grasshoppers instead of pounding bean seeds in a wooden bowl. Foreword from daughter, Amy: History is made daily, but we rely on our parents and their parents to pass down culture, giving history its meaning. Think back to the wisdom that we’ve all shunned from our relatives in ignorance or pride, our displeasure in calling on holidays, and attending obligatory events. In each moment, a story vanishes forever. Ancient ties we willingly sever out of loyalty to our present lives and lack of curiosity and interpersonal interest. Memories of our own pasts’ can make us nostalgic or lament the unchangeable. Memories of another give us the power to see into the future, avoid mistakes, heartache, and danger. We ignored stories from our parents when we deemed ourselves antonymous, and dreamed we were invincible. As adults, we can only hope their stories serve us for our future children. Contrary to the cycle, we hope they will listen early and learn quickly.
Automated Man: Thought Inheritance and the Cycle of Existence
Automated man, Thought inheritance and the Cycle of Existence asks the age old questions: Where did we come from? How and when did the universe begin? How much human behavior is instinctual and how much is learned? Dr. Anselm Anyoha lays out a compelling new concept, combining theology and science, on how man fits into nature, the universe, evolution, and the course of time. He describes how nature recycles itself in nine distinct chapters which include topics such as:
- The ‘cycle of existence”. There is no beginning and no end.
- The cyclical nature of major human elements.
- Inherited looks and behavior from parent to child.
- Discussion of how the human body, despite its complexity, is a product of a single cell.
- The brain, the glands, and the biological underpinning of the human autonomic system.
What is the chemical imbalance that may cause people to lose their minds?
How all this fits into the spiritual notions that most people adhere to.
Automated Man, Thought Inheritance, and the Cycle of Existence is an important and enjoyable book for anyone who is interested in how nature applies the same physical laws throughout the universe. Dr. Anyoha’s concept combines scientific laws, evolution theory, and facets of spontaneity to describe a universe that never began and will never end.
