This paper is an excerpt that was synthesized from our recent book, "The Gram Code of African Adam", "Stone Books and Cave Libraries, Reconstructing 450.000 Years of Africa's Lost Civilizations", co-authored with Catherine Acholonu and edited by Research Assistant, Nneka Egbuna.
Our research, which we call "The Ikom Gram Project", was first presented to the world in May, 2001 at the UNESCO Roundtable on Intercultural Dialogue, Badagry, Lagos, Nigeria under the title "Ikom Monoliths of Cross River State: Pre-Historic Computer or Astronomical Calendar" by Prof. Catherine Acholonu. I joined the research team in 2004 and brought with me the Indian/Asian connection into this global project, which seeks to pull together the cultural, scientific and technological threads that unite us as one human family with the same basic philosophies, needs and problems, hopes and aspirations. More than that, as an Information Technology Specialist and Software Appilcations Engineer, my entry into the project was inspired by the ongoing attempt by the UN Forum of Arts and Culture and the Catherine Acholonu Center for African Cultural Sciences to bring about an interface between Arts and Science, Culture and TEchnology in their ongoing quest to resurrect the lost heritage of forgotten civilizations of Africa and the world. Ma participation in this project was concemntrated in the area of Computer analysis of language samples and linguistic data.
On a personal level, my fascination with this research project is driven by the fact that it demonstrates to my personal satisfaction and fascination, that mankind originated from one original family. This original family has been demonstrated by scholars in Molecular Genetics, Archaeology, Paleontology and other related disciplines to have first lived on the African Continent more than 300.000 years ago.
