In this Anthology, I show that the disciplines of Theology, Science and Philosophy have parted ways for millennia; making the understanding of the Universe problematic as is today; leading to my suggestion that they need to synergize in the 21st Century by embracing the abductive rather than the inductive Scientific Method of Bacon that has been embraced for such a long time. Furthermore, I take a detailed look at why and how nature is deceitful about the true reality and hereby propound a new equation that unifies the physical and quantum realms in the universe as was the last wish of Professor Albert Einstein. Equally, I also delve into the mysteries that shroud the black Moors and Egyptian Pharaohs; positing that they may have been from Kakamega Forest in Kenya contrary to the standard narrative by Egyptologists and western archaeologists and historians that blacks had nothing to do with Egypt. Lastly, I take a look at the female breast and associate its conical shape to that of the mysterious universe following the big bang and also the shape of the pineal gland that is man's third eye and center of knowledge and wisdom; positing that it might be a hidden coach of man and may be critical for societal enlightenment as might have been foreseen by the sculptors of nude female statues displayed prominently in public spaces across the globe in medieval times.
