Good And Evil Expressed In Terms Of Mathematical Equations


Some natural phenomena in our physical world can be described mathematically.

These include the distance traveled by a moving object, the path traced by an object thrown in the air, the speeds of two cars traveling in opposite directions, the distance traveled by an object dropped from a height, the amount of force needed to drag an object up or down a hill and so on.

Now the same physical world is governed by two forces – good and evil. These two forces interact at unequal amounts (Psalm 52:3, John 3:19). The good comprises of good thoughts and bad thoughts while the evil comprises of evil thoughts and evil actions.

These two forces can be considered further under four sub headings as follows:

(a). When the world is pervaded by evil (b) When the world is pervaded by goodness (c) When good and evil are equal (d). When good and evil exist side by side unequally.

Whereas the first three are assumptions (utopian), the last is a social reality, the ideal world we live in.

Both the assumptions and the social reality can all be represented by linear equations in mathematics says Paul Chika Emekwulu, the author of The Mathematics of good and evil, an Igbo Language activist, an international best-selling author, and author of several books including The ‘GPS’ of the Holy Bible, Mathematical Explorations for Advanced Students, When spell your name in Igbo is equivalent to spell your Igbo name in Igbo – A Mathematical Slant_ etc.

Paul Emekwulu, who is also a professional speaker and the author of Getting to know Fibonacci numbers, Getting to know Triangular numbers said that he described his four equations on good and evil in his unpublished manuscript titled, The Mathematics of good and evil

Paul also has other equations to his credit. One of them among others is how to use triangular numbers (1, 3, 6, 10, 15…) to find the number of diagonals in an n-sided polygon, and how to convert the numbers of the Fibonacci sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5…) to unique, single triangular numbers.
