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.

A tortoise to start with is a slow steady animal. In the famed story of the hare and the tortoise, the hare ends up losing the race despite the odds being in his favor and him using trickery. With such results, it is evident that with success there is more to wits and sweat. The hare got the speed, the limbs, and of course, the energy to win any marathon the animals of the jungle set up. So how does this heavy slow tortoise win the race against all odds? Well, the simple reason is that the tortoise knows its limitations. It knows what it can do and what it cannot do. A majority of us tend to overlook this part and end up burning out in a race that was never even meant to be theirs in the first place.

Unfit for Society by Munira Hussein

KShs1,500.00 KShs1,000.00
From the problems of the girls and women grappling with the challenges of living in a patriarchal culture to the allure of terrorist groups, Munira Hussein writing in the voice of what one of her characters describes as the children of the north brings a unique perspective from a region of Kenya which, despite its rich cultural traditions, is mostly associated in the popular imagination, with all the wrong things; violence, insecurity and underdevelopment. This compelling collection of stories from a young and upcoming writer shows there is more. Written in the exuberant flair of a poet, it celebrates the resilience of a people striving to survive in a harsh and unforgiving environment, the soaring aspirations of the younger generation for a better life and stands as a challenge to society to re-examine its ethos; some of which have clearly been overtaken by time. Recently shortlisted for the African Writers Award for the short story Powder in the Wind, Ms. Hussein has the grit to curve herself a niche in the literary sphere and Unfit for Society is only but the first word in what promises to be a fruitful writing career.
