Many people reject Happeh Theory because they feel only “scientists” can be right about anything. Happeh Theory of course claims that anyone can produce insight into any subject.
The story reprinted in this post bolsters that claim by reporting on a college student who solved a 30 year old math problem. The student has not graduated so he is not a “scientist”, yet he provided insight into a math problem by solving. A problem that no “real” scientist has been able to solve for 30 years.
Anyone can provide insight into any area of interest or study. Believing only “scientists” and “scientific” pronouncements is self defeating and will limit the understanding of the world of any person who chooses to faithfully only believe “real scientists” and “real scientific pronouncements”.
A Nigerian student has broken a 30-year-old maths equation and achieved the highest grades at a university in Japan for 50 years.
Ufot Ekong, who studied at Tokai University in Tokyo, achieved a first class degree in electrical engineering and scored the best marks at the university since 1965, the Flotilla Magazine reported.
He began his success early at the university, solving a 30-year-old maths equation in his first semester.
Throughout his university career Mr Ekong has won six awards for academic excellence.
The brilliant mathematician worked two jobs alongside his studies to pay his way as a student.
Mr Ekong also speaks English, French, Japanese and Yoruba and won a Japanese language award for foreigners. He is currently working for Nissan and already has two patents for electronic car design to his name.
Tokai University is a prestigious private university based in the Japanese capital, which was founded in 1924. It is focused on the sciences and technology and roughly 60 per cent of all students are enrolled in these schools.
