"The world is truly beautiful solely in the eyes of a true
philosopher."—Kedar Joshi 

Kedar Joshi is most famous for his quotations. He has been quoted several times in
newspapers such as The Times of India (alongside Paramahansa Yogananda and Mahatma
Gandhi), in journals such as the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, in
scientific magazines, on the websites of famous businesses, on wide-ranging blogs, in
quote repositories, on add-ons, etc. He is being quoted since his early twenties, and as
such, he is probably the only Indian writer, and perhaps one of the few writers in the
world ever, to have been so widely and variedly quoted at such a young age. Joshi is also
a noted astrologer and a critic of the Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti
(MANS)'s campaign against astrology. He has been interviewed by some of the
prominent Indian newspapers regarding his opinions on the MANS issue, and he has lectured
on astrology at some of the reputed institutions in India. And he is a noted philosopher
too. Several well-known encyclopedias have articles about his research on the
Bhagavad-gita. Scholars and notable personalities, such as Ruán Magan and Reginald
Massey, have had dialogues with him, some of which have been published in academic
journals. 

Selected Praise for Kedar Joshi: 

"It has always a well-guarded secret of the true shamans that the world at its basic
core is VAIN, VAIN, VAIN. Of course, they would rarely talk about it, just observe it.
After all, the latest product of the Universe in our area around here, homo sapiens, is
equally vain, vain, vain, and would therefore not appreciate any such comments. This may
change now. The truth of the vanity of the Universe has a cute name (UQV) and a claim to
copyright. Congrats go to … KEDAR JOSHI!" — Max Sandor, ''The Vanity of
the Universe - now copyrited...'', The Sandorian Grove, May 21, 2008 

"Kedar Joshi, a Hindu philosopher of just 28 years, but stunning lucidity, has ruled
that the failure of previous philosophy is essentially the failure to see the
self-evident." — Pedro Oller, ''Fracaso'', La Republica PREMIUM,
December 8, 2009 (Spanish) 

"It has to be conceded that the author (Kedar Joshi) has tried to fathom the
Bhagavad-Gita, which cannot be said about even those who profess by it in their public
discourses." — BS Murthy, Boloji.com, April 17, 2012 

"Kedar Joshi once said, “It is human to search for the theory of everything, and
superhuman to find it.”" — Christina Sarich, ''The Nine Billion Names of
God'', Waking Times, August 10, 2012 

"His (Kedar Joshi's) work may appear to be similar to the writings of Fritjof
Capra (author of the bestseller The Tao of Physics: An Exploration of the Parallels
Between Modern Physics and Eastern Mysticism), however Kedar Joshi's work is much
more profound and goes much further than simply exploring existing parallels." —
Galileo, Metapedia, September 15, 2012 

"A friend posted this quote on Facebook today: “God is a philosophical black
hole—the point where reason breaks down.” – Kedar Joshi. It got me thinking about
philosophy in general." — Is “Philosophy” Contra-Christian?, Pathways International,
November 30, 2012 

"Joshi has written a wonderful book (on the Bhagavad Gita). Its originality ranks
with Rushdie's work." — A.Yeshuratnam, The Internet Archive, January 12, 2013 

"I find the quote (by Kedar Joshi) “In reality the universe has no geometry”, a
beautiful and challenging sentence." — Mark Brodie, ''Passage from
Document and Layout'', WordPress, October 8, 2013 

"I believe in this project (Mac 4 Math & Science - High School Digital Stories)
whole heartedly, because "the goal of science [and math] is to understand the
fundamental reality and the goal of technology is to change that reality" states
Kedar Joshi." — Ms. Stanfield, DonorsChoose, October 27, 2014 

"Maybe you (Kedar Joshi) are God. When you created the world—that is, first set it
into motion—you could've thought that immediate and constant sensual gratification
wouldn't be as good as a gradual foreplay-like buildup, that it would be better to
earn sex with Aishwarya by intellectual accomplishment, after you besting me at this
dialog for example." — Raam Gokhale, ''Slumdog Philosopher'',
January 4, 2010 (Not praise really, but Gokhale's counter-philosophical argument
from the first of his ten dialogues with Joshi) 

"The Satanic Verses of Bhagavad-gita is a 2005 Indian religion non-fiction action
film and the sequel to the Bhagavad-gita. Directed and written by Kedar Joshi (Curse Be
Upon Him), it suspensefully reveals that he who appeared as the protagonist in the
prequel is in fact the antagonist." — Uncyclopedia (There seems to have been satire
too!) 

Kedar Joshi, in his own words: 

I have collectively named my philosophical works as "Superultramodern Science and
Philosophy". They mainly include two theories viz. the "NSTP (Non-Spatial
Thinking Process) theory" and the "UQV (Ultimate Questioner's Vanity)
theory". I wrote the first versions of the NSTP theory and the UQV theory in 2002
and 2007 respectively. [These theories could progress into the "SDD (Solipsistic
Divine Dream) theory", the essence of which may be best expressed through the
following quote of mine: "I am not Kedar Joshi; I am God; I am asleep; Kedar Joshi,
and Kedar Joshi alone, is my dream." The SDD theory came in September 2012.] 

I also entertain the following possibility: "Anything that is possible is real; it
exists". The way it is logically necessary for the law or the idea that if p implies
q and q implies r then p implies r, to have always existed and to always exist, for it is
impossible to be otherwise, all ideas exist for eternity (with no beginning or end). The
way the idea of blue colour is the same as the experience of seeing blue colour, i.e. the
state of consciousness of seeing blue colour, that state of consciousness, and thus in
fact all possible states of consciousness exist for eternity. And since only ideas are
possibilities, it is true that anything that is possible is real; it exists, and it
exists for eternity. It was never created and it can never be destroyed. Creation is
therefore an impossibility. God is an impossibility; He does not exist. The possibilities
are however endless; the universe is thus infinite. Nothing is born. Nothing dies. Birth,
time, space, death, they are mere ideas, mere states of consciousness. [This may be
called "The IMV (Idealistic Multiverse or Meta-Universe) Theory".] 

However, on the other hand, I believe to have objectively discovered that my Vedic
horoscope is the astrological manifestation of "Sheshasayi Vishnu". Hindu
astrology has appeared to me to be so profoundly and minutely true that I am on the verge
of conviction that the ultimate truth is not beyond Hinduism; though that does not
discourage me from questioning the morality of the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-gita. My
critical theory on the Gita is articulated in my treatise "The Satanic Verses of
Bhagavad-gita". 

I was born on 31 December 1979 at 07:30 AM in Mahim, Bombay, India, into a middle-class
Hindu (Chitpavan Brahmin) family. (Precise birth details are given for astrological
reasons.) I went to Balmohan Vidyamandir in Dadar, Bombay for school education and Sir
Parashurambhau College in Pune for higher education. (I received a B.Sc. in electronics
and an MA in philosophy from the University of Pune in June 2001 and July 2003
respectively.) I lived and worked in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England from March 2004
to March 2006 on a UK working holiday visa. I presently live and work as a consulting
astrologer in Pune, India. I am an ardent devotee of Lord Rama. I am single. 

I theorise that the universe is essentially a non-spatial computer, though a space, in
which phenomena like quantum non-locality do not exist, may have separate existence. The
mechanism of the non-spatial computer can be analysed through "non-spatial
mechanics", which I propose as a new branch of mechanics. It can be roughly said
that the NSTP theory, through some non-spatial mechanics, describes how the universe
works. I believe that the establishment of the non-spatial mechanics will bring about an
indispensable revolution in physics. 

The English adjective "superultramodern" was coined by me in 2004, in
Cambridge, England, through the publication of some of my earlier works on the internet.
Although the name "Superultramodern Science and Philosophy" may sound like
gimmickry, the intention is not really to play gimmicks, but to proclaim that should some
of its conventionally philosophical ideas, such as the NSTP (Non-Spatial Thinking
Process) theory and the Non-Spatial Mechanics, are given their well-deserved scientific
status, the ultramodern (i.e. extremely modern), or the post-modern, science of that time
shall be revolutionised to become and be known as "superultramodern science".
The same should be more or less true about "superultramodern philosophy", hence
the name.
