Witchcraft and Computers: Points of Convergence and Divergence (Published)

Justifying a claim that cannot be empirically verified plunders one into deep philosophical waters. The question of verifiability comes to mind especially on metaphysical issues such as witchcraft which might be somewhat difficult to establish. Incessant calls for physical evidence to substantiate the assertion become the order of the day. Attempts to therefore make a synergy between a computer system which is a physical component, and witchcraft, a metaphysical reality, by drawing out the points of convergence and divergence could be demanding. The obvious difficulty in achieving this aim would be made open when one clamours for the existence of metaphysical entities with no experimental means of sustaining it. This may prompt us to question the ground for holding on to such claims. Will it be possible to scientifically prove the existence of witchcraft powers? Will the argument to support the metaphysical reality of such an entity be sufficient to establish its existence? How do we then reconcile the modus operandi of witchcraft to that of computer system? Based on the disparity between computer and witchcraft, is there any possibility of making a synergy between them? The crux of this paper is to expose the arguments on the existence of witchcraft based on their modus operandi and some other immanent facts, with the view of likening this with the operations of computer system.

Vicious Attributes, Enegmatic Atmosphere and the Notion of Usurping the Power and Higher Authority Represents As Striking Themes in the Play Macbeth by William Shakepeare (Published)

Shakespeare’s Macbeth has been written to show the evil nature of human being. How a person with good nature suddenly can turn into a wicked one, and that is usually happens because of extreme greed for power and higher position in his milieu. In  this play, Shakespeare has exhibited the ambitious mind of Macbeth and lady Macbeth which has been forced them to commit the most vicious deeds towards the king Duncan. Shakespeare in this  play didn’t only portray the vicious nature of a man who got success in his villainous intentions but also showed that the natural order of things can regain its original shape. In this way my paper will eventually elucidate about Shakespeare’s notion of depicting the transformation of a good person into a wicked one. Macbeth and lady Macbeth were two significant characters in this play who has been played the role of evil minded souls.
