What a Concept Is this Love..

What a concept is this love, That transcends time and  space, To the heavens above; What a feeling of ecstasy, That permeates through my organs With uncanny accuracy.   I feel helpless, as love makes the rules; I feel useless, like the rest of the fools. Love needs not rest, haste or waste; It takes your soul and lets you taste;   It travels through stratosphere,  in stealth mode, Avoiding all radars, and returning to abode; It seduces by its pungent scent, Letting you taste the forbidden fruit, Before your final descent.   It breaks down all prejudices and barriers,  instantly Leaving only a warm feeling of felicity. It dominates your life, without concession, Leaving you with nothing but a feeling of  elation.   It takes you on a journey of delight, Revealing heavenly wonders to your sight; It hypnotizes, leaving you in a trance, Wandering in and out of consciousness,  at a glance.   Your vision is blinded by this concept of love; You are locked in limbo by the heavens above. There is no cure for this  hallucination; All you can do is pray for redemption.

Poetry in Motion

The earth revolves around the sun in a never­ending cycle, Like a person pedaling constantly on his bicycle. The electrons of atoms revolve around the nucleus spherically, Like the blood circulating around the body laboriously.   The butterfly circles around a flower with delight; It does the same around me without fright. The dog chases its tail in a circular motion, Revolving around itself in a state of confusion.   Tornadoes and hurricanes spin in a circulatory motion, Causing calamity and destruction in their unorderly procession. Sine and cosine graphs revolve around the x­axis mathematically; The water emptying through the sink revolves naturally.   The wheels of the car rotate for motion, Caused by the continuous cycle of internal combustion. The washing machine spins around, While the cat glares at it ­ dumbfound.   The disk in the hard drive rotates continuously, Retrieving its bytes and sending it to the CPU singularly. The rotation of the second, minute and hour hands of the watch; A constant reminder of time ticking away, while we age and watch. The Ghost Dance of the Native Americans, delightfully, Reunites the living with the spirits of the dead, bringing peace and prosperity. The Sufi whirling of the mystical Dervishes, spinning in perfect symmetry; Dances performed within the Sema ­ a worship ceremony.   What do all these mean to me? A reminder of everything in constant motion continually, From the planetary system, To the digestive system.

From Autonomy to Thermopolitics: Freedom As A Dissipative Structure

Abstract  The following essay wishes to perform two tasks: 1) to provide a brief review of traditional, liberal and humanist notions of freedom in order to contrast this tradition with a contemporary, thermodynamic and informational, dissipative systems-theoretical concept of freedom. Freedom is traditionally conceived in the lights of thermodynamic entropy, positioned within a closed-system ontology. This article specifies what the concept of freedom looks like in a dynamic, open-system ontology, premised on information-theoretical insights and dissipative dynamics. Here, freedom is not subject to the same form of entropy as the classical thermodynamic principles which underwrite most humanist and liberal takes on freedom, oriented in closed system forms of autonomy; 2) With a mind to this insight, we … Read entire article »

The Case For Mathematics..

GH Hardy,the British mathematician, once wrote: “A mathematician, like a painter or a poet, is a maker of patterns. If his patterns are more permanent than theirs, it is because they are made with ideas.” However, many will rebuke this statement. GH Hardy, at the time of writing this, had no clear understanding of abstract art; his world revolved around mathematics and Trinity College Cambridge. Abstact art gained prominence in the 1940s – just the time he started writing his famous book, “A Mathematician’s Apology.” Jackson Pollock, the famous abstract artist, wrote: “When I say artist, I mean the man who is building things – creating, molding the earth – whether it be the plains of the west – … Read entire article »

Can Uganda Withdraw from the International Criminal Court?

Abstract The work of the institution of the International Criminal Court, popularly referred to as ICC has of recent attracted varying criticism from around the world. This criticism is probably more pronounced on the Africa continent than anywhere despite the fact that the continent has the highest number of countries which have ratified the Rome Statute.

Uganda is one of the countries that have sharply criticized the ICC. What is Uganda’s relationship with the ICC? Can Uganda withdrawal from the ICC? … Read entire article »
