Black History Figure: Gabriel Oyibo
Since Oyibo is “light” years ahead of many with his ancient African approach to physics researchers are still trying to grasp his deep, yet simple formula to the Grand Unified Theory.
There are those unforgettable decades that produce ground-breaking innovation through individuals with extraordinarily brilliant minds. Regarding Black History Month, we can think of the contributions to the world by individuals such as George Washington Carver or Montgomery, AL native Percy Javon Julian.
Recent decades have quietly witnessed the contributions of an individual by the name of Dr. Gabriel Oyibo, a Nigerian-born physicist who now resides in America. He is known for his work towards Grand Unified Theory (GUT), which is a theory that seeks to explain the relationship between subatomic particles and their electromagnetic interplay.
Oyibo entitled his work published in 2002 “Grand Unified Theorem: Representation of the Unified Field Theory or the Theory of Everything.” In a number of his presentations he has referred to it as “God Almighty Grand Unified Theorem (GAGUT).” He has noted that this is the missing link to what physicist Albert Einstein considered a mystery until his death. Physicist Alexander Obiefoka Enukora Animalu,  pioneer of solar energy in Nigeria, and mathematicians such as the late George Handelman and Dr. Edith Hirsch Luchins among others have commended his work and it is reported that he was nominated for a Nobel Prize in physics. He has done work in the areas of aeronautics, aircraft design, aeroelasticity, and made significant contributions to NASA research. It is a wonder as to whether his research contributed to the enhancements on jet fighter wings such as the United States Air Force's F-22 Raptor and F-35 aircraft. Time will tell.
This should be celebrated and children in schools throughout America should know much about him, especially African American children! Unfortunately, they do not. To add more, the top five Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) have very limited on-hand access to his scholarly journal articles through their electronic databases. That is still positive. Sadly, one within the top five HBCUs has no access to his work whatsoever. The only university in the state of Alabama that has a physical copy of his book is Auburn University.
But, why are these things so? This is the point where it gets quite interesting. On one hand, a basic search through Google immediately yields ferocious, ad-hominem attacks about Oyibo being a “crank,” “crackpot,” “kook,” or “loon,” and that he as a person is not credible. In order to fully discredit his person, it emphasizes he is from Nigeria—a place known for international scammers. Oyibo himself notes that his research is a “theorem” (that which is proven) and not a mere “theory” (that which has yet to be proven or a speculation). This is what baffles some internet sensations viewing Oyibo’s research as presumptuous.
On the other hand, unlike other institutions of higher learning, the top five universities in the nation have long ago caught on to how important Oyibo’s ground-breaking research truly is. That is why almost all of them have full access to every single scholarly peer-reviewed journal article he has written, including his mathematically laden work noted above. They possess both physical and electronic copies of his work. Each of these institutions and other renown institutions across the globe are quietly, yet systemically, working through Oyibo’s simplified equation “G ij,j = 0.”
As a side note, there is one element of his explanation of the equation that smacks of knowledge strikingly similar to the ancient Egyptians and Hebrew Israelites from millennia past. The ancient Egyptians have known that atomic and subatomic particles are brought into existence via waves from an unexplainable, primordial force. The ancient Hebrews reveal a similar notion of pre-existing, oscillating waves in one word (מְרַחֶ֖פֶת) found in Genesis 1:2. Thus, there may be deeper reasons Ivy League institutions look askance at critics and tacitly approve Oyibo’s research in the way they currently do.
At any rate, as the world awaits the announcement of the analysis of Oyibo’s work, let’s celebrate this figure of Black history to have made it this far!
