Culture


Civilization is overrated

I wondered how other men discovered that their neighbor is having better time with his wife on the missionary position.

Missionary position was a huge innovation for humans survival. That position improved reproduction success, and much more. Couples using that position have higher chance of reproduction.

The animal like position from the back was the most common one, until a strong man but with a small joystick frustrated turned by force his partner on her back, and Succeeded to have a good time.

It’s was an awful moment in history. Very barbaric indeed. An animal, let alone a human on its back is either dead, defeated or wounded. Therefore putting his partner on her back was a historical barbaric moment. Only a strong man could have done that.

Fortunately, the lady noticed that that position was less painful for her legs and back, and for the first time she felt something deeper inside her and enjoyed it. Furthermore she got pregnant faster than her fellows, triggering envy from other ladies.

Such a lucky conjonction, led to a viral gossip among women about the new position in the jungle. Other ladies started requesting that position.

Thus, the missionary position become a fashion, which never faded.… Read more

Vanity markets

Facebook is a vanity market. Reason why it’s so successful. Showing off long legs, beautiful houses, new hair styles, new clothes, wittiness, intelligence are sufficient motivations that have attracted and retained billions of people who spend countless hours on the platform showing off what ever they got without any other reward than collecting views and likes.

That’s how vain humans could be.

Vanity is the strongest human motivation above all.

Smart leaders, parents, design vanity markets to leverage human ingenuity and create paths to growth.

Electronic fair and shows are the vanity market for electronic engineers. Organized inside schools like in China, they spark unbeatable creativity and innovation from the youth and the olds.

Demo days are vanity markets for computers programmers and entrepreneurs who would give up school at prestigious universities to upstart something with the goal to put a dent in the universe.

Churches are popular among women because they are vanity market to show new dresses,, new car, wealthy spouse, dancing skills, or status.

Nobel Prize awards are the vanity markets for the smartest among humans.

Oscars, literature awards, … are very attractive and stimulating vanity markets for artists, writers, etc.

GDP and world status ranking are the vanity markets for nations and countries around the world.… Read more

Rational fools

The easiest people to fool are rational people. Just overwhelm them which ‘evidence’.

Lack of culture turns people into slave of rational thinking.

Rational people are so obvious, so transparent, so light, so hollow, so pitiful!

When someone has only reason to guide their life, they are excessively defensive, reactionary, and control freak.

‘Homeless‘ people only have reason to go through life. They lack traditions, mystic, rituals which only come from a home where generational knowledge is sacred and protected. Their knowledge comes mainly from books and school. They lack home knowledge.

It’s unfortunate that the legacy of the ‘enlightenment’ still shackles most people.

Dive into mystery, immerse yourself in mystic, act in non linear ways, shut the fucking rational mind up to see beyond the curtain of the miserable logic.

So many rational fools, full of noise and pretense, ambushed by depression.

The most common disease of a rational mind is depression.

May mysticism free you!

Instant Kids

The most damaging effect the medias have on our kids is the “instant result” syndrome.

They want everything now. If they have to wait, then it’s not worth it.

When things get difficult they move to the next stuff, then the next stuff.

If you tell them their Mom waited 9 months for them to be born, they’d say their mom is stupid!

All, They want is to be manager, which means to give orders to some else to do the job. They don’t have time for the details.

if you tell them the farmer has to wait 5 months to grow the corn, they’d say they prefer the popcorn made in the Cinema instantly.

“Instant result” is the new disease that fuel consumerism and is destroying our social fabric and ecology!

They grow up frustrated that there is no instant success or achievement. Like butterflies they jump from instant moment to instant moment lacking depth in anything.

Hollow and always haunted by depression, they cover they whole drama with the all season word : modernity.

Lex Natura, Lex Economica

The invisible part of African spirituality is the philosophy of the real.

The philosophy of the real states that human potential fulfillment emerges only from active direct interaction with reality. The raw data captured by our senses and cognition would eventually lead to understanding and from understanding knowledge, from knowledge wisdom, and from wisdom humor.

Acquired knowledge is often compounded and transmitted to children, but the transmission process comes with two main risks.

#1. Actuality: is the knowledge still actual or is it outdated. More often than not past knowledge is not actual.
#2. Error and manipulation. Transcription often carries the risk of manipulation, error or omissions.

The above two reasons explain the stupidness of book smart people once they are outside of buildings.

Why am I writing this post?

To enslave someone just make him or her hate the real world and offer him or her the comfort of a virtual reality.

To control someone shield him from reality. The propaganda word for that virtual reality is called modernity.

We have succeeded so much with modernity that for most people modernity is the reality.

Modernity is the lex Economica or domestication, or human zoo.

For the fractional part of humans, unscared by the raw, rough, real world, lex Natura or the jungle is our home.… Read more

Hypertension is killing in Mass

Here in my small town, in a backward country, People still are dying like flies from hypertension. There is not a single day, when I do no hear of one of two people dying from hypertension. There is no single family without a few members heavily on drugs treating hypertension.

It is now a pandemic. Killing more than any other disease!

It’s killing 30 years olds as 60 years olds. Apparently, hypertension is now the first cause of mortality here.

Africa is not even an industrialized continent nor a modern economy, and a huge size of the population is suffering from modern diseases called NCDs (non-communicable disease. NCDs include Parkinson’s disease, autoimmune diseases, strokes, most heart diseases, most cancers, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, cataracts, ulcers, hypertension, …).

Gosh! … What would happen if we would industrialize? Running a modern economy?

I was all wrong. Africans don’t need any foreigners to exterminate them. They are happily exterminating themselves.

Being modern or civilized means for most rejecting local food and eating food from Europe, America, China and drinking foreign beverage.

The new affordability of sugar, has our people becoming diabetic in mass.

Advertising for alcohol has turned more than half of our men into alcoholics and liver and kidney diseases are now common.… Read more

Hit and Run

That’s the new trend here with ladies on the dating market. Maybe that’s something old, I’m only getting to know.

The trick is simple. The lady takes advantage of a man interest in her to ask for money, a new phone, etc. from the man. Once the man will give the money or buy the phone, the lady will ghost him, block or take distance, looking for another man to crook.

Why am I writing this?

I’ve heard so much about this from friends and connection but never experienced it. But recently I lost my virginity. I got in that trap from a young lady in town.

It was amusing to see, but it got ya to reflect!

I guess, there might be some similar behavior from men, promising heaven and paradises to girls, and once they’d sleep with them they don’t fulfill their promise, and run away to another lady to abuse.

It’s a very sad state of affairs here, regarding relationships. Everyone is sleeping with everyone, and in most case every man or woman would be in two or three relationships simultaneously. Multiple partners is kind of the norm, not the exception.

Marriage has disappeared and single moms thing has become the majority.… Read more

The last brave day of a girl?

I have Just Witnessed a scene on the street of Lomé in Togo.

A 9 years old girl was insulted by a boy much younger than her. She swiftly moved to give him a physical correction he well deserved.

The small boy got scared, ran to hide behind his bigger brother. The girl went after him confident to clean her honor. She was now barred by 3 boys. That alone won’t stop my valiant girl.

She is now alone in front of the 3 boys, but determined to punish the small boy.

The big boy in the group told the girl: “Do you think you’ll beat a boy?”.

The girl won’t answer such a stupid question, but moved her arm to push the disrespectful boy.

The situation got very tense. I intervened to ask them to stop the fight.

Two adult ladies sitting just over the street yelled at my brave girl “you are girl, do you think you’ll beat a boy? Tchuannn!”.

The girl moved away, probably internalizing the saying that girl can’t beat boys.

Was it the last brave day of that girl in front of boys?

We all love innovation

Innovation drives progress.
But if you want innovation in the world, you have to start by self-reinventing yourself. You have to become a new person, a reborn.

Innovate yourself!

Innovation means taking the old, the known and turning it into something new, a breakthrough perspective.

Like it’s said somewhere, you have to be reborn to get into the kingdom. But this time you are the mother and the newborn you.

The peaceful name for the process is renaissance and the hurried way is called revolution.

Using a software metaphor, I’d say debug yourself before trying to debug society.

Personal renaissance or personal revolution should precede your big plan for worldly renaissance or revolution.

Innovate yourself!

Those who wants to change the world without changing themselves first are often tyrannical people.

Because self reinvention is more difficult, we delude ourselves into harmful projects to change the world to fit our laziness, our shortcomings, our ill conceived ideas of the world.

Instead of in-novating themselves they are re-novating themselves with L’Oréal, because makeup is easier!

Values system collapse in my country

I don’t know the situation in other countries in Africa, but what I could witness here in my country is a complete collapse of values system.

Values like honesty, integrity, accountability, professionalism, stewardship, loyalty, commitment, faithfulness, dependability, code of honor, etc. have completely disappeared in the society.

From the head of state to the street vendor lying has become very much common or the rule. People are constantly lying and deceiving. Cheating blatantly others and designing tricks to trap others and taking advantage of them has become systemic. All this has made it difficult for anyone to trust anyone.

Fathers are lying, kids are seeing their moms lie all day long, parents teach their kids how to lie, how to deceive, how to cheat, how to trap and take advantage of others. Friends easily betray each other. Business partners are easily parted because it’s impossible to sustain relationships on constant attempts to abuse others or cheating.

Everyone thinks he or she is smart enough to hide their lies, their cheating, making it difficult to build a culture of accountability. Worst, being deceitful and cheater is seen as good character for success. Honesty is scolded, integrity is seen as hindrance or pure naivety by others, and relationships are successfully only when the people in are all crooks and notorious thieves.… Read more
