There are two profound questions that require immediate answers. The first question is, ‘What is the philosophy of life – how universal ethics plays an important role in the establishment of peace on this planet earth?’
And the second question is, ‘Does morality exists beyond the human brain?’
According to Dr Omkar Prasad Baidya, these two issues are linked. Dr Omkar, a nobleman, is on a mission of national development by seeking philosophical and scientific solutions to these two profoundly reflective problems of human existence.
Dr Omkar believes that humans are nature’s finest creation. God endowed humans with highly developed brains. Human beings can think rationally, and creatively, work for spiritual development, have a scientific attitude, show spiritual values, and have spiritual and emotional intelligence with the help of this developed brain.
Human beings can do moral thinking, and moral behaviour, distinguish between right and wrong and think and act in favour of mankind or human development with the help of a developed brain. God created humans with a developed prefrontal cortex (PFC) part of the brain, which allows humans to develop self-consciousness, connect to a higher self, or even to God, and add…
Human Virtues and Spiritual Values
…to their character.
Humans can comprehend the meaning of their life on this planet, as well as God’s mission to make this planet a better place to live, to spread the message of universal love and brotherhood, and to emphasize the importance of virtues in human life. With the passage of time, humans can comprehend the significance of spirituality and spiritual values in adding divinity to their lives. Human beings gradually learn the value of doing work and acting in accordance with righteousness and justice. He understands that in order to make this world a better place to live, every human action must be justified in terms of human benefit, mankind, and human development, as well as the benefit of all living creatures.
Dr Omkar is a Physician, Author, and Assistant Professor at the ESI Medical College, Joka, Kolkata, India. He earned his MBBS from RIMS, Imphal in 2009 and his MD-PhD in Physiology from KGMU, Lucknow from 2013 to 2019. He became an Assistant Professor at the medical college in 2016 and has published several papers on stroke biomarkers and other medical topics.
“I am a Physician and a Medical Researcher. I wish to connect the world and my dream for

Morality Beyond Human Brain: A Philosophical and Scientific Exploration
In this book, Dr Omkar integrates his philosophy on human morality with the mathematical model and scientific aptitude. He also explains various components of human morality and how these components can play important role in the survival of human beings on the planet earth. He also adds that even cells of our human body do have morality to some extent which guides them to do moral behaviour towards the biological system of the living organism.
When the world sees many events, such as a lack of peace, violence, clashes, and so on, it is because of a lack of human virtues and morality. With time, our spiritual leaders and moral philosophers will recognize the significance of human values, human virtues, and human morality as solutions to many human problems and human civilization.
“I examined human morality from both scientific and philosophical perspectives, and I attempted to investigate the concept of human morality from both perspectives. Furthermore, I have introduced a mathematical model of human morality from which various philosophical aspects of human morality can be very clearly explained and visualized.
Furthermore, I believe that human morality can be the solution to all human problems and that its concepts can be scientific and logically explained through mathematics, which can focus clearly on human morality by providing it with a scientific background. I’ve also focused on the philosophical concept of human morality and how science and mathematics can better explain philosophical ideas.
Furthermore, it demonstrates how human morality can be used to solve many human problems and explain the existence of life on Earth.
When we see many incidents, wars, violence, human rights violations, poverty, and sufferings that threaten global peace, I want to emphasize my life philosophy in resolving many basic human problems. I believe that humans should understand the significance of their creation by God. To value all of God’s creation, we must understand how to value all of God’s and Mother Nature’s lives. I believe that now is the time to establish a life philosophy that supports universal ethics for all living creatures. I’ve also demonstrated how religion plays an important role in the establishment of universal ethics for all,” says Dr Omkar.
Furthermore, human virtues, in my opinion, can play an important role in the establishment of world peace as well as in the resolution of many problems confronting humanity and human civilization.
Universal Ethics and World Peace: My Philosophy of Life
God created humans from their ancestors, primates that evolved through the process of evolution. Human beings are God’s best creation because they have self-consciousness, can understand God’s influence in their lives, have a connection with their higher self, have spiritual consciousness, and have scientific intelligence and creativity, which leads to scientific innovation and technological breakthroughs that make the planet a better place to live.
All of this is possible because humans have a highly developed neocortex, or prefrontal cortex, in their brains. Human beings have emotional intelligence, which allows them to feel the emotions of others, as well as spiritual intelligence, which guides them to the path of spiritual enlightenment and can even aid in the shaping of human civilization. Human beings have the ability to learn, to understand natural laws and their relationship with nature. “God created humans with the intention of doing karma in order to purify our existence, learn about it, and return to the eternal God after our work on Earth is completed.
According to spirituality, the human body is composed of the soul, which is a component of the supreme soul, i.e., God. After our purpose and work on Earth are completed, our soul will return to be integrated with the supreme soul, i.e., God. God has sent everyone to the planet Earth with a purpose, and it is our responsibility to complete that duty or purpose before leaving the earth’s surface,” says Dr Omkar.
God created humans with the purpose of spreading the divine message, maintaining world peace, and making the earth a better place to live. God has provided sufficient scientific and spiritual intelligence to complete this life mission.
He adds, “However, as with rapid civilizational progress and rapid modernization, we prioritize material advancement and scientific achievement over spiritual development. But, over time, we created a society and civilization that prioritized power, economy, and status over spiritual values.”
Human beings become distracted from the true purpose of life as a result of the desire for more power, the economy, and factors such as ego, anger, and hatred. Instead, men and nations begin to wage war, commit violence and harm others, and we gradually lose our spiritual and moral values.
Though man created the term “religion” for his spiritual advancement, with the influence and permission of the supreme Godhead, to spread universal love and brotherhood throughout the world, and to connect with God. “And to know his greatness and to guide us to the path of spiritual enlightenment, but as time passes, narrow religious beliefs die, and differences in religious ideology develop, leading to violent conflict, communal wars, and other threats to world peace,” he states.
As a result, the time has come to create a universal religion for world peace and universal ethics for all. Human virtues are crucial in shaping human civilization. Human virtues are a collection of qualities that shape human life in a divine way, as well as human civilization and make him suitable for fulfilling the true purpose of life. Human virtues are critical in establishing peace on this planet. “Human beings are intelligent and rational in comparison to all other living creatures, but we should not harm others and should instead use our talents and intelligence ethically.” To achieve societal development, talent must be combined with values. Human virtues have the power to transform all people into ethical and spiritual beings.
According to Dr Omkar, nature has endowed all living creatures with intrinsic morality and intrinsic immorality, which play critical roles in the survival and existence of life on Earth. Furthermore, human extrinsic morality can be acquired through moral education, moral philosophy, spiritual and human values, and so on. Finally, he adds that world peace is nothing more than a function of human morality and virtue.
