Lagos – the city of Big Ambitions

written by Laolu Ogundele   What happens when you get a small-sized receptacle, throw in a dash of creativity, a mix of boisterous optimism, and more than a sprinkling of chaos? You get a city called Lagos. Occupying a combined 1400 square mile area in the southwestern geopolitical zone of Nigeria, the ancient town comprises a beautiful network of islands, lagoons and sandbars.  With its teeming 24 million inhabitants, Lagos is the...

The Creativity Mindset

written by Laolu Ogundele   What pops into your mind when you think about creativity? Donatello carving out David’s sculpture in a slab of marble or Leonardo Da Vinci dutifully painting the Mona Lisa? If you do, that’s fine – and correct. However, let’s bring it closer to home. What are some creative things that you have done recently? Yes, I’m asking YOU, the reader. Don’t squirm. Don’t slink into the...

The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 15 Miss Sedative & Co /absurdist comedy/   The four of us were sitting outside on the pool terrace, with a mojito in hand, desperately trying to find a common topic for conversation.  “Arcadio, where did you learn to create such a high wave of sexual latitudes? It was quite incredible,” Martha asked, testing my reaction or perhaps out of idle curiosity.  “Just following the wind, sweetheart,” he grinned. ...

The Story of Harmless Bullet

Screw Quarter Day 13 /absurdist comedy/ I welcomed the first rays of sun with enthusiastic cheer. After a long trip – full of obstacles, spiritual slumber, and excessive heat – I felt like a bear, awake and moving in the direction of the dawning light.  We arrived at the east riverbank of Gunung Kinabalu, closer to the lunch. Three cars, one of which was a beautiful Bentley R-Type Continental from...

The Story of Harmless Bullet

/absurdist comedy/ Day 7  A Never-Ending Race My soul soared like a heartless falcon over a wild rabbit, circling nearer and lower to the ground, to the food of its dreams. I opened my eyes — a monstrous horn grew bigger in all possible dimensions, sticking to the legs of Ms. Amblycorypha Oblongifolia eighty-one times, clockwise. After that strength-consuming procedure, she asked me to repeat the same process. I did...

Imagine a World Without Time

While I’m working on the formatting of So Absurd It Must Be True, Book 2 (yay! it’s almost here!), try to imagine this world… without time.  In Schrodinger’s famous thought experiment, he imagines a cat in a box with a flask of cyanide. The flask will be broken – and the cat poisoned – if an atom of radioactive material decays. We know that it will decay, but when is...

About time, love… and faith

This post is based on the book of Martin Hägglund – “THIS LIFE: Why Mortality Makes Us Free” (non-fiction; philosophy) I guess you know that everything you do is divided between the past and the future. Every tiny moment. An hour. A minute. Or second… That means you are never be able to seize NOW as a present moment. Even when I am writing these words to you – today, at...

The Concept of Nothing

written by Aaaron Boluwatife Nothing, as used in everyday speech, means the absence of something. For example, “There is nothing in my pocket” 👇🙀! In this post though, I will not be talking about “nothing” as the absence of something, but as the absence of everything. Everything you know… including yourself. You’ve always imagined what this world will be without you in it, right? Now imagine the world without anything in it....
