    We review the “ichi” linguistic geometry of Catherine Acholonu’s three books

    titled The Adam Trilogy and published under three book titles – Gram Code of

    African Adam (GCAA, 2005), They Lived Before Adam (TLBA, 2009) and Lost

    Testament of Ancestors of Adam (LTAA, 2010) – based on its algebraic

    representations as “Afa” Matrix : 8x8 = 64 = 28+36 = 26+38 = 32+32 = 24+40

    and the following correspondence principle with elements of quantum field theory

    As a consequence, we relate the number of the primitive elements (points,lines &

    planes) of 3-dimensional projective geometry of linguistic frames of reference

    (tetrahedron, square & hexagonal pyramids, Cartesian cube and cube-hexagon

    hyperspace) to the Gell-Mann-Ne’emann 8x8 representation of SU(3) symmetry

    and current algebra of strongly interacting particles in high energy physics. By

    comparing the “ichi” linguistic geometry with Kaku’s ten-dimensional

    hyperspace view of the (superstring) theory of everything (TOE) (unifying the

    four basic (electromagnetic, weak, strong and gravitational) forces in nature and

    Stephen Hawking’s Torus view of the universe (based on the use of quantum

    fluctuations to eliminate the black-hole singularity of Einstein’s general relativity

    theory of gravitation), we develop an African perspective on TOE based on cube-

    hexagon hyperspace/torus and the associated current algebra and discuss the

    1. INTRODUCTION At the 2009 International Seminar on Theoretical Physics and National

    Development (ISOTPAND-2009), we began under the title[1], “Ichi” linguistic

    geometry and evolution, to lay the mathematical/physical foundations of

    Catherine Acholonu’s three books[2] titled The Adam Trilogy, Vols 1, 2 & 3,

    published under the separate titles: The Gram Code of African Adam (hereunder

    abbreviated GCAA, 2005); They Lived Before Adam (TLBA, 2009); and The Lost

    Testament of the Ancestors of Adam (LTAA, 2010). The mathematical foundation

    of interest is the branch of topology known as singular homology[3] which is

    concerned, in geometric and algebraic terms, with the triangulation and algebraic

    projective geometry of linguistic frames of reference (tetrahedron, square-based

    and hexagonal-based pyramids, cube, pentagon, hexagon and cube-hexagon

    hyperspace) from which can be proved, as stated by Machio Kaku[4] on p.105 of

    his 1995-published book titled Hyperspace, A Scientific Odyssey Through

    Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the 10 th

    Dimension, that “the fifth

    dimension is topologically identical with a circle and the universe is topologically

    identical with a cylinder”.

    In order to anchor this paper on available physical data (artefacts) from

    traditional African culture, let us recall[5] the prevalence of conical-shaped huts

    on polygonal base throughout Africa which was adopted in the architecture of the

    National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NISS) at Jos, replicating the

    famous groundnut pyramids on polygonal base (in Northern Nigeria) and, the

    more intriguing architecture of the step pyramid at Nsude in Enugu State of

    Nigeria photographed by missionaries in the 1930s and reproduced in Fig. 1

    below. By enclosing the step pyramid in a cylinder whose circular section is

    defined by the six tips of a hexagon and the height by the five tips of a square

    pyramid (to represent growth along the cylindrical axis), one can generate the

    inter-joined 5&6-quadrangle pattern indicated in Fig. 1 which is a recurrent motif

    of Igbo artistic expression (LTAA, p.81) and replicate the distinctive hexagon

    grid on the “enigmatic” Igbo-Ukwu bronze tyre/hyperdoughnut (TLBA, p.447),

    i.e. a torus, immersed in a cube-hexagon hyperspace!. This semiology, that is,

    physics and logic, of African culture goes beyond the post-colonial theme of

    struggle between invading European culture (represented by a rectangular box

    totem of Christian missionaries) and African culture (represented by the “creation

    snake”) that got trapped in the box in Chinua Achebe’s novel, Arrow of God.[6].

    2. REVIEW OF THE ADAM TRILOGY Our primary interest in ref.[1] was to characterize the linear writing code

    (preserved in Ikom Monoliths) of the African[Igbo] Mother tongue of world

    languages discussed in GCAA and the various artefacts excavated by the British

    archaeologist, Thurston Shaw[7], in 1950s at Igbo-Ukwu in South Eastern

    Nigeria, especially the bronze hyper-doughnut(torus) (TLBA, p.447) shown in

    Fig. 1 in terms of the facial scarification, (called “ichi”) discussed in TLBA &

    LTAA, and the stone age axe excavated by Anozie[7]. Projective geometry comes

    into play through Da Vinci codes[8] defined (like Miller indices in solid state

    physics) by the ratios and total number (S) of the three primitive geometric

    elements, points(vertices) :lines(edges): planes(faces), of the various geometric

    objects, e.g. 4:6:4 (S=14) for the tetrahedron and 5:8:5 (S=18) for square-based

    pyramid, 8:12:6 (S=26) for cube, 7:12:7 (S=26) for hexagonal-based pyramid and

    12:18:8 (S=38) for hexagon, etc. Accordingly, from the statement (p. 128,

    TLBA) that “Eve or Shi in plane geometry meant the side of a square or triangle”

    and (pp. 155 & 177,TLBA) quoting from Nag Hammadi that “the entities Father

    [Nna], mother [Nne] and Child [Nwa] exist as perceptible speech” having in them

    “three powers, and abiding in three NNN, three quadrangles, secretly in ineffable

    silence” [of the Ikom Monoliths], we set up a correspondence in Fig. 2.

    Igbo(36,38), English(26), & Man (Adam) symbol of Creation (32).

    African Journal of Physics Vol.3, 2010.

    The correspondence between the “ichi” (linear writing) codes and the alphabet

    systems identified in ref.[1], i.e. Arabic(28), English(26), Igbo(36&38), etc and

    man (Adam) as the symbol of creation (32) is based on complementary

    representations of the “Afa” Matrix : 8x8 = 64 = 28+36 = 26+38 = 32+32 =

    24+40, with consequential doubling of the reference objects.

    Physically, linguistic geometry is based on sound as the vehicle of

    communication of the first human, called “Ele Chi Ife” or “Bearer of Light” (p.30

    LTAA). Ele was the father of the forest people (Bushmen) which was the original

    meaning of the word Igbo who called themselves Sons of the Soil, i.e. the Adama

    and the Nshi. It is the claim of The Adam Trilogy that Ele evolved from the Big

    Bang before the Niphilim came and changed the course of things from evolution

    to creation; that Ele lived in Ugwuele Okigwe (Imo State) and environs and his

    language was the Igbo Afa word Atu (the origin of the Egyptian word Atum)

    which, according to Prof. J.A. Umeh [9] on p.81 of his 1977-published book titled

    After God Dibia, means “The Word of the Creator”. Afa is the Igbo word for

    Oracle - the Primeval Oracle Matrix given to the first people by God; its

    equivalent among the Yoruba is called Ifa. It was a language used by all growing

    things (man, beast and crystalline minerals) alike, a language of symbols and of

    geometry. which is why it is possible to lay the foundation for the creation of man

    (“Adam”) and the theory of everything (TOE) in geometry.

    Consequently, the linguistic frames of reference (tetrahedron, square-

    based and hexagonal-based pyramids, cube, hexagon and pentagon) indicated in

    Fig. 2 are capable of uniting, on one hand, Gell-Mann-Ne’eman[10] 8x8

    representation of the (SU(3)) symmetry of the strongly interaction particles in

    high energy physics from their occurrence in the product 8x8 = 1 + 8 + 17 + 8 +

    10 + 10*, which (as shown on p. 31 of Y. Ne’eman’s [10] 1963-published book

    entitled Algebraic Theory of Par
