There is the assumption of the interplay of freewill and determinism in human activities and in particular Africa’s attempt to emancipate technically. The African is faced with two choices for her salvation; to leave the shell of panpsychic animism and enter into the kingdom of Theistic monotheism or to remain in the kingdom of theistic panpsychic animism and find her salvation therein.
