About the Book

The goal of the book is to solve the three big problems plaguing our world: poverty, war, and environment deterioration from pollutions. The “big three,” besides making lives unbearable for billions, also have increasingly threatened to destroy us. Many, including the wisest and the most learned the human race has to offer, have tried and only to fail. The reason is simple: they just don’t know what the reasons behind the problems are. This book, The Quest of an Unlikely Fixer, has through biophysics, clearly identified that the selfish nature of living organisms is the only reason. Selfishness always leads to hurtful behaviors; that is one of the reasons. The other reason is our godlike power. But we sadly don’t have the right morality to guide this power. The solution to human selfishness and our godlike power is by a correct, new golden-rule-based morality, which allows us to come up with two moral principles to deal with selfishness. The book introduces moral selfishness as the tool to heal our sick planet. Following moral selfishness will promote intelligence and cooperation among the people of the world. It will bring a paradise to our planet. The book is full of original ideas.

About the Author

After writing and rewriting this book three times in the past 15 years and over 70, it dawns on me that my whole existence has been shaped for this one mission: to be the messenger of the book. Then, everything—the education, the many major career changes, the hardships, and even the two broken marriages-- begin to make sense. The Ph.D. in Biophysics is to allow me to better understand life, and decades later, to uncover one of life’s deepest secrets. The career changes, the broken marriages and the hardships are to thoroughly prepare me to be the bearer of the knowledge to fix our sick planet. For that I am forever grateful.
