The pyramid is an example of what we are. It is the shape of what we are. It is the lesson that must be seen and understood. It is the wisdom of the ages passed down for us to hold. So when did we forget this wisdom and why are there so many without it?
Take and examine the number of souls on this planet. If you look at 50 years ago, you would see far fewer souls, as a matter of fact, only half. If you look 200 years ago, you would again see far less souls, as only one quarter of those here now were sharing this Earth. But if you chart the long history of human population since the end of the last ice age, the number of returning souls and the adding of new souls would have a very consistent and uneventful accumulation for the first 11,500 years of modern history (post ice-age) and we would see that the old souls returning would outnumber the entering new souls by a wide margin. This should have made it easy to live as the opportunity for wisdom was in abundance.
As the population grew ever so slowly, there were always many old souls within the population and for the longest time they outnumbered the entering new souls greatly. So this must have produced a time of great wisdom and learning.
Modern day does not reflect the days of old when the old souls outnumbered the new souls. One would be surprised, and find difficult to digest the image of what the population explosion has done for the new soul to old soul ratios. What was once in ancient (and somewhat recent times) a ratio largely in favor of the old soul, has flipped and now old souls are greatly and dangerously out numbered.
During the first 3,000 years since the end of the last ice age (10,000-7,000 BC) the same 5-10 million souls were long time returns and so for these many years, the number only doubled making the number of new souls in each generation few and far between. This must have been a time of great learning and understanding as the old souls accrue wisdom and experience to share.
In the next 2,000 years (7,000-5,000 BC) the population doubled again to 20 million. And again, each generation carries the slightest of burdens by the entering new souls and they should easily be able to maintain a stable environment for learning.
And then, the following 1,500 years (5,000-3,500 BC) saw the next doubling of our population to 40 million. The numbers are still clearly in favor of the old souls as each generation would only see ½ million new souls. This would mean 20 old souls were here for every new one being added.
It was not until another 1,500 years (3,500-2,000 BC) had gone by until the population doubled again to 80 million, but continuing a favorable ratio of old souls to the new being added. And for thousands of years, the new souls were delicately and moderately peppered into the population.
So finally we reach the Greek philosophers at 500 BC and another doubling has occurred to 160 million and over a 1,500 year period again, a slighter number of souls are being added to a comparatively strong base of older souls.
Then at the time of Christ, in the first century AD, the population just 500 years later stood at 250 million. Even still, the number of old souls remains strong relative to our current age.
Once again, 1,500 years later during the time of Martin Luther (1,500 AD), the population again doubled to 500 million. The adding of souls has been steady for nearly 12,000 years. Less than 1 in 10 of the souls today is from before the time of Luther. But during this time (in 1,500 AD), 1 in 10 souls were over 6,000 years old and 1 in 3 was a soul from the time of Pythagoras.
But then, only 300 years later, we saw yet again another doubling to 1 billion souls at the beginning of the 19th century. This is about 1 ½ million souls per year in a population of more than 500 million. You would think this a good situation but remember, in the past the old souls were indeed older souls and the brand new souls may be few in percentage, but they are amongst a fast growing population of newer souls as the older of the old soulsbecome exponentially less in number and ratio.
Just more than 100 years later we see another doubling of the population to 2 billion souls around the crash of the stock market in 1929. This is 10 million new souls per year amongst the younger souls barely older then they are. The situation is becoming quite reversed at this time and the old souls are beginning to encounter a number problem.
It was only 50 years later when we saw the number of souls double again from 1925-1975 and adds 40 million new souls per year when half the number of souls have only been around for 100 years. This is not a number problem it is a number catastrophe. We are well on our way of doubling again in the 50 years up to the year 2025.
What was once as nice even ramp up of souls to add and cultivate has turned into a battle for the old soul to keep ancient wisdom alive during this age of technology and ignorance. Today in 2016, only 1 in 10 souls have been here more than 500 years. Only 1 in 5 souls has been around since before the American Revolution. The table has turned on the old soul so much that only 1 in 28 souls has been around since the time of Christ. Finally, of those from the first half of our 12,000 years since the end of the ice age (the first 20 million living the first 6,000 years) there is only 1 for every 350 souls on this Earth today.
I do not know who the new or who the old soul is, but I do know if one subscribes to the reincarnation theory, what should not be lost on them is the monumental task of keeping the wisdom of the ancients alive in our world. It is truly a time when such knowledge can be lost to an explosive like growth of new souls without the wisdom and compassion yet to be learned. It is the burden of the old soul to be here for the new. It is the opportunity for both to have purpose and life, such is the universe.

How and why The Yoruba fought and lost The Biafra-Nigeria Civil War is an interpretative book on the Nigerian Civil War. Built on facts of history, the book espouses a new epistemological system of analytical reasoning and cognition. It is an introspective objection to nigerian history as we know it.
The author, Jimanze Ego-Alowes gives a chronology of the war as he believes it. First there was the Chukwuma Nzeogwu coup and the killing of non Igbo people. Second, the counter coup and the genocide instigated against the Igbo by the Yakubu Gowon regime. Third, there was a suspension of barbarism. Fourth, the Aburi Accord was instituted. Fifth, every party to the accord agreed to live together in a civilized manner. Sixth, Gowon regime reneged on the Aburi accord, tearing up the agreement unilaterally. As a result, Gowon levied a genocidal war against the Igbo.
Thus, Ego-Alowes believes it was Gowon"s perfidy that plunged Nigeria into the civil war. So, that was how Gowon and the North chose to give up on civilized conduct. The author even cited instances where if it were Europeans or Americans they could never renege as Gowon did. But nigeria isn't the only country facing disintegration. Britain is not more secure. The difference is that instead of the use of force, dialogue and remedy are provided for community grievances.
The United Nations principle of self determination applies all over the world contrary to the bogey of sanctity of national borders with which Britain terrorized Nigerians. When Britain was threatened with disintegration, Westminster responded, even if in panic with a grant of substantial political autonomy to Wales and Scotland.
According to Ego-Alowes,it is, he insists the greatest good that befell Nigeria when Nzeogwu failed; and the greatest evil that blighted Nigeria was that Gowon succeeded. Accordingly, all the evils that befell Nigeria today from Boko Haram, insurgency, Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and Niger Delta Avengers are traceable to Gowon's repudiation of the Aburi accord. It is however noteworthy that the Yoruba showed superhuman tolerance over the killing of their brothers in the Nzeogwu coup. He said that their tolerance was a supreme act of stateliness that one must salute and emulate.
But instead of the path of peace, Gowon, prodded by Britain declared war on Biafra. During the war, a list of Yoruba actors was full of enthusiasm, as if the war was their pet project. The author asserts that Obafemi Awolowo and Colonel Benjamin Adekunle were so anti- Igbo that their speeches were filled with bile and ethnic hatred. While it may have been the sole purpose of Gowon to ethnically cleanse nigeria of the Igbo; it fell on Awolowo to give voice to it.
After the war, the Yoruba gave the impression that it was for the sake of national unity that they joined the north to fight Biafra so as to bring the Igbo back to the fold. The truth according to Ego-Alowes is that the Igbo never opted to leave Nigeria. They only agreed to a new living arrengement promised by the Aburi accord.
To bolster Jimanze’s hostility theory, he related how Olusegun Obasanjo told the former governor of Abia state, Dr Orji Uzor kalu, an Igbo that Obasanjo told him that the Igbo should be grateful if they produced a president of Nigeria a hundred years after the civil war. Apparently, Jimanze said, Obasanjo was mixing up with his poorly informed interpretation of of American presidential history.
However, an aspect of Ego-Alowes’ averment is intriguing. He said president Muhammadu Buhari released appointments the same day The Punch newspaper published an editorial condemning Buhari’s parochial appointments. Furthermore, he said when Yoruba muslims are allowed to lead prayers in northern mosques, that is when we will know that true change has come. When Christians are no longer murdered in cold blood in the north, simply for exercising their religious freedom whilst the government turns a blind eye; that is when we will know that true change has come.
