This paper attempts to respond to a call to find an ontological basis for establishing African legal theory. The African world of my choice is the Igbo world of South-east Nigeria. It is a world I want to examine to see how its material and theoretical structures help articulate a philosophy of law in terms of projecting a consistent understanding of law subjects and the foundations of their rights. The article builds on the contributions of F. U. Okafor and his many African critics.
This paper is an extension of the book of reference  below. QCD Lagrangian is derived from the same equations of motion for quarks used to construct the equations of motion for mesons and baryons in the scalar strong interaction hadron theory that accounts for many basic low energy data not covered by QCD. At high energies, the energetic quarks in a hadron can be far from each other and approximately free. Each quark is associated with a vector in an internal space characterizing its mass and charge. These spaces are interchangeable and provide a new symmetry equivalent to color symmetry in QCD. A quark in a meson has two “colors” and in a baryon three “colors”; the β function of QCD is 61%-92% greater in high energy interactions leading to baryons than that to mesons. This function enters the measurable running coupling constant and this prediction is testable against experiment. QCD, successful at high energies, is thus reconciled with the scalar strong interaction hadron theory and both complement each other.
The magnetic moments of the baryon octet are derived from a first
principle’s theory, the scalar strong interaction hadron theory, and are in
approximate agreement with data. It is conjectured that this agreement may be
improved by including the “spin-orbit coupling” term not evaluated here.
