Prof. Tapan Sahu discussed that life is not studied in its comprehensive totality. Most of the concepts of modern biology has been borrowed from Western ideas. We don’t go that deep, but we do some introductory education in value education. We should try to study life. Is it some kind of stone, brick, wall or something beyond that? Life cannot be fully explainable as life. Prof. Tapan Sahu says chemical conditions giving rise to life is doubtful. To explore subjects like personality, thought, feelings and willing, the methodology must include something more than the scientific concepts of modern chemistry. He agrees that it may not be possible to identify an ultimate particle explaining the concept of cellular life and that consciousness must be the basis of the cellular life.
