I think this series is awesome, and so eye-opening. It's really sad to hear that universities in Nigeria are in such bad shape. Hearing about the terrible access to libraries should remind us how important it is to make our work accessible for people with no journal subscription access, for example by posting unofficial versions on our websites.


How is the American University of Nigeria regarded within Nigeria? I'm familiar with the equivalent institutions in other countries and pretty impressed by some of them, but don't know much about AUN.


"No condition is permanent in this world" is a good fundamental philosophical principle. I'm looking forward to seeing it as a matter of discussion here or any where else. African in origin, but with universal intent and significance.



As for your second question, "Is the universe pointless?", it would be if we were not here to wonder about it, we with our heuristic passions never to be satisfied, and that's why we need to be here.
