Author Biography

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Daniel Nanpak Zuzul is currently a Principal Programmer in the Information and Communication Directorate (ICT) unit, University of Jos, Plateau state, Nigeria. Daniel received his Master’s degree in Internet, Computer, and System Security from the University of Bradford, and holds a bachelor’s degree in Physics/Computer from the Federal University of Technology, Minna. He had previously taught physics at the Anglican Girls Secondary School in Nnewi during his Youth Service corps programme. Prior to joining the University, he gained some understanding of the workings of the human mind and world from life experience, and whence forth applied his knowledge and experience during his undergraduate programme. His concerns predominantly lie with the nature of man and events and the probability of events that creates a subsequent event base on their varied outcome. He understands that in every outcome, there exists an independent one; otherwise, there would be nullity and void. That everything from creation or evolution, there is a design and that these designs are arranged in a systematic pattern and each accorded set rule(s) of compliance and unfolded accordingly.

Theory of Freedom by Daniel Nanpak Zuzul is an interesting essay on one of the fundamental questions that have interested philosophers and scientists over the ages: the question of freedom. In these pages, the author offers a compelling definition of freedom, powerful insights and ideas that will help readers gain more understanding of the theory of relativity and the limits of freedom, drawing inspiration from the scientific concept of relativity. The author makes a very clever shift from the theory of relativity to the freedom equation, exploring the functions of space and time. The book features diagrams, equations, and illustrations that help to get the writer’s points across. This isn’t a book to read for leisure, but one for those who want to understand the notion of relativity and who are keen on seeing the link between freedom and relativity, and it is also one to be read with more concentration than is required when reading a novel.

Daniel Nanpak Zuzul has a unique phraseology and the writing is fairly simple, except for the equations and the mathematics that call for mental labor. When I picked up this book, I expected it to talk about freedom from a philosophical perspective, but it turned out to be more of a scientific illustration than philosophy. I had also expected to read more about freedom in relation to the human person and one’s power to choose, but this aspect wasn’t much explored. Nonetheless, there are interesting points to ponder in this slim book and the author makes some statements that are insightful and mind-boggling. Here is one that I’d like to take with me: “It has always been quite baffling to discern the paradox that what one lives for is what one dies for, and also what one loves is what is hated or lost.” This book could have read even better if the author featured some references, allowing readers to see his influences and what other authorities in the field think, because one gets echoes of Einstein and other thinkers before the author. That said, Theory of Freedom is a compelling and informative work that will be of great interest to scientists and philosophers.

Theory of Freedom is a relatively short work of philosophical, scientific and mathematical considerations, penned by author Daniel Nanpak Zuzul. Written in the form of a chaptered thesis with appropriate formulae and explanations, the essence of the work is that the author has made a thorough exploration of the theory of freedom and its connection to other established theories. Using the theory of relativity and subsequent work, the essay unpacks this initial theory and expands it into the Freedom Equation as a possible means to understand and influence both Human and Natural activity in the process. This Natural Perspective, in turn, hopes to explore the importance of natural conditions like space, time and distance, shedding light on the different ‘worlds’ in which humans live.

The work of author Daniel Nanpak Zuzul certainly provides many interesting avenues of discussion and new possibilities for understanding both humanity’s purpose and the original framework designed by the universe itself. The organization of the work is very strong, with coherent chapters and sensible breaks and subheadings to aid understanding, whilst the references are extensive and very well utilized to help explain the more complex points of discussion. More than this, Zuzul writes with compassion and passion for his topic; there is a sense of genuine hope and need for understanding in his prose. Overall, Theory of Freedom will make excellent reading for those interested in relativity, energy, and ways to move Einstein’s work forward even more.
