“I believe there is always another side to any story and hence, since the world is going awry, I have decided, like Copernicus and Kant, to look at issues from the ‘other’ perspective.

A Neo-Copernican Revolution is just another way of saying I will, like Copernicus, who, rather than go with the generally accepted Ptolemaic geocentricism, adopted heliocentricism and changed the way the world views the universe. And like Kant, who rather than join the queue in the debate in favour of either rationalism or empiricism, sought a synthesis and killed the old debate between rationalists and empiricists and gave epistemology a new direction.

I therefore think seriously about any views expressed – even a view that has never been expressed before. I belief that any opinion is as strong as another and hence all should be expressed. Feel free then to make your comments, challenge my views and engage me in debates.”

  2. Kingsley your writing is thoughtful and deep. keep it up. I enjoy each new piece .It takes rigid discipline for me to stop reading your blog and concentrate on other things.

    • Thanks for the compliment Harry. I will do my best to make sure I keep improving the standard. Your suggestions and contributions are always welcome.
      Thanks once again!

  3. First off, Ksnewuh, I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!

    • I think the first problem you have is that you take the writing issue too seriously. Writing comes with a lot of leisure. The first step I will advice is that you occupy yourself with commenting on posts on different blogs and if you are on Facebook, follow the major media outlets and always express yourself when something strikes you. Do not bother much about what others will think. Just write that which comes to mind.
      If it is something for publication, give someone to read and make comments and get back to you. Before you know it you will overcome the phobia of making mistakes, which hampers your ability to freely write.
      As for me, when an idea comes to my mind, I simply jot it down in an open document on my computer and then continue doing other things. (that way the idea does not disappear) With time, the idea begins to take greater shape as I read or interact with different people. One moment, before I know it the whole idea will have developed so much that I can now start writing. Sometimes, the whole idea changes before I even get half way.
      Hope this helps!
