"The world is truly beautiful solely in the eyes of a true
philosopher."—Kedar Joshi, The UQV (Ultimate Questioner's Vanity) Theory, 2007 

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 books,
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) 

"As Kedar Joshi said “Philosophy is the only excuse God has for his cruelty and
vanity”." — KTemoc, ''Dreaming of Tiger Lily'', Blogger, January
28, 2010 

"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 

"As Kedar Joshi has said, “The worst mockery God can make of a moralist is that He
compels him to be a solipsist.”" — Ultima Thulian, Colony of Gamers, May 6, 2012 

"Thanks (Kedar Joshi) for bringing out a good book review (i.e. "The Literary
Venom of Anti-Brahminism in Maharashtra, India")." — varadraj, Boloji.com, May
31, 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 

"Very Good Work (on the Bhagavad-gita) Kedar.. the only problem with other so called
philosophers is they don't see things as a scholar sees it .." — Vaibhav,
Boloji.com, January 14, 2013 

"Perfect analysis by you (Kedar Joshi, w.r.t. your article "The Literary Venom
of Anti-Brahminism in Maharashtra, India")..." — Swapnil, Boloji.com, April 9,
2013 

"Very nicely put together and very informative (article on the Bhagavad-gita, by
Kedar Joshi)..." — The Red Pen of Doom, Boloji.com, August 7, 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 am a former Hare Krishna with many hours reading the Bhagavad-Gita. All of what
you (Kedar Joshi) say is true..." — Matt-ji, Boloji.com, October 10, 2013 

"A surprisingly good article (on the Bhagavad-gita). Thank you for this, Kedar. The
picture you paint with your words of Krishna as a terrorist egomaniac rings true. And
your description of Krishna prearranging the Kurukshetra War, which (is said to have)
resulted in so much death and heartbreak, reminds me of a twisted child, torturing
insects and small animals for his own pleasure. That is just sick. There is nothing high
or noble about it. When children torture animals, that is often a sign that they will
grow up to be a serial killer. Krishna is sick in the head, and needs help. He needs to
be protected from himself, and society deserves to be protected from him. And from his
cruel and casteist book. Krishna's schtick about how no one is dear to him brings to
mind the psychopath's cold affect, and his inability to form any meaningful bonds
with anyone. ... We need to look to real heroes, not this blue Jeffrey Dahmer." —
Ramprasad, Boloji.com, October 11, 2013 

"Excellent analysis. ... I congratulate Kedar Joshi for his boldness to reveal the
inconsistencies and immorality in the Bhagavad Gita." — P.Radhakrishnan, Boloji.com,
April 8, 2014 

"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 

"Like Kedar Joshi said, ‘The world is a contradiction; the universe a paradox.’ With
that in mind, and having seen my own father do great and horrible things, a deity that at
once tells me to forgive and yet leave no alive makes a certain amount of sense to
me." — Corra Para La Sombra (Run For the Shadow), Tumblr, 2014 

"The author (Kedar Joshi) of this text (The Satanic Verses of Bhagavad-gita) has to
be commended for his work. ..." — loveendures, The Internet Archive, January 7, 2015 

"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". One of my principal thoughts from the treatise is as follows: The
Bhagavad-gita in fact implies that Krishna—the preacher of yoga—is not in the least a
yogi himself; for if he were a yogi, then instead of creating the (painful) manifested
world (Vyakta Prakriti), he, as Paramatman, would quite simply be content within himself
and would not have any desire, including the desire for creation, as there can be no
action without some underlying desire in a world not necessitated from logical necessity.
Krishna is not the God of yoga but the "God of desire and hypocrisy"! 

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.
