QUOTATIONS – Superultramodern Science and Philosophy
Absurdity is never absolute.
Nothing is completely absurd. (Variant)
Nothing is completely meaningless. (Variant)
Strong agnosticism is not true agnosticism, and in saying this firmly I slur the spirit of agnosticism.
If you are a weak agnostic, you are a man of science; if you are a strong agnostic, or a theist, or an atheist, you are a man of religion.
I am a weakly agnostic theist, having 94.99…% < belief in the ‘ultimate questioner’ < 99.99…%, as per my UQV (Ultimate Questioner’s Vanity) theory.
I am 99% sure that God exists, but the remaining 1% makes me an agnostic.
I am 99% certain that God exists, but for the remaining 1% uncertainty I am an agnostic. (Variant)
I am 99% a theist, 1% an atheist, and 100% an agnostic. (Variant)
If you are an atheist, you are a fool. If you are a theist, you are either a fool or God. If you are an agnostic, you are a wise mortal.
An atheist must be a fool. A theist must be either a fool or God. An agnostic must be a wise mortal. (Variant)
I am agnostic about everything, including my agnosticism.
I am agnostic about everything, including of course agnosticism. (Variant)
I am agnostic about everything, including agnosticism itself of course. (Variant)
I am agnostic about my agnosticism. (Variant)
I am convinced that an electronic machine, no matter how smart and intelligent, being still a mere spatial structure in concept, can neither innovate nor even understand the axiom: ‘No spatial structure can be a representation of any feeling’. Such innovation can only be a work of a non-spatial mind, like a human being, and only such innovation, it should be acknowledged, can pave the way for further scientific achievements.
In attempting to speculate the outcome of the possible race for supremacy between natural and artificial intelligence, it makes sense to consider that there are basically two sorts of machines – spatial machines and non-spatial machines. The universe is physically a non-spatial machine. The artificial machines, like electronic computers, manifesting artificial intelligence, are conceptually spatial machines, physically existing in non-spatial form. A human brain, manifesting natural intelligence, has both conceptually spatial as well as non-spatial components. Now, to be the real master of the game of life is to be able to manipulate the physically non-spatial universe with one’s conceptually nonspatial intelligence, where the non-spatial human brain stands some chance and the spatial artificial electronic brain does not stand any.
Celestial bodies are like palm lines. They have mere information about your destiny, not any cause.
The worst of all superstitions may be that astrology is a superstition.
They often say, “What’s the point in astrology if you can’t change your destiny?”. Well, it’s true that you can’t change your destiny, but still it helps knowing about gravity.
Astrology, like phenomena such as wave-particle duality, seems astonishingly convincingly true (though it is important here to note that astrology, like any other natural phenomenon such as gravity or quantum non-locality, does not seem to be logically and physically necessary), but at the same time it seems that the stars and planets cannot influence human affairs to the level expected by astrology. What can then be said is that the stars and planets, like any other spatial bodies, are mere (conceptual) objects in the universal non-spatial computer program, which could be considered as a modern, computational description of subjective idealism, the theory that seems most convincing in explaining phenomena like wave-particle duality and quantum non-locality.
Astrological phenomena seem to be a result of unusual coordination between some of the planetary and stellar objects and earthly affairs, the sort of coordination appearing in phenomena such as wave-particle duality and quantum non-locality… If quantum mechanics is a science, astrology too may be a science.
ज्योतिषशास्त्राला थोतांड समजणार्या, परंतु त्याचा फारसा गंधही नसलेल्या, आधुनिक विज्ञान व तत्त्वज्ञानाचे तोकडे ज्ञान असलेल्या, अर्ध्या हळकुंडाने पिवळ्या झालेल्या, पूर्वग्रहदूषित, हेकेखोर व्यक्तिंना व अंधश्रद्धा निर्मूलन समितीवाल्यांना बळी पडू नका. ज्योतिषशास्त्र, तसेच हिंदू धर्म व अध्यात्म अत्यंत महान आहेत! त्यांचे ज्ञान, अनुभूति व लाभ घेण्याचा प्रयत्न करा.
An atheist is as religious as a theist.
Theists and atheists are equally religious. (Variant)
Men of atheism and men of theism are alike in that they both are men of religion. (Variant)
Atheism is not profanity; it is stupidity.
The last thing I can believe in is the illusion of consciousness.
The development of intellect is like this: Theism – Atheism – Agnosticism – Theism.
The development of intellect is from theism to theism, via atheism and agnosticism. (Variant)
The mechanics of the real cause, the true cause, the only cause – I mean ‘God’ – is beyond human logic and intellect. Man may – and I speculate he will – one day discover the mechanics, the nature of existence, of God; but the time man discovers it, he will have become Superman.
The cause is the father and logical necessity is the mother of the effect; though the mother never seems to exist and the father ever seems to exist beyond logic and reason.
Moral certainty is intellectual immorality.
Certainty is the most vivid condition of ignorance and the most necessary condition for knowledge.
Certainty is uncertainly certain.
I am philosophical Christ, crucified on the cross of ignorance for the sake of divine vanity.
I am a philosopher-son, born to suffer for my divine father’s vanity. (Variant)
Christianity would be helpless without the idea of freewill and the idea of freewill would be helpless without incongruity.
A colour, like any other experience such as pain or pleasure, does not exist in space; its existence is non-spatial.
Colours do not exist in space; they are non-spatial. (Variant)
Colours cannot exist in space. (Variant)
Common sense is the most unscientific thing in the world.
There is only one real computer – the universe – whose hardware is made up of non-spatial states of consciousness and software is made up of superhuman as well as non-superhuman thoughts.
The real computer – the universe – is non-spatial.
The real computer is non-spatial. (Variant)
I’m more interested in the computer on the universe than the computer on my desk.
It is self-evident to me that consciousness is non-spatial. It may not be self-evident to most of the people in this world. But then a proposition self-evident to most of the people may not be self-evident to mentally handicapped people and chimpanzees.
That ‘consciousness is non-spatial’ is self-evident. (Variant)
It is self-evident that consciousness is non-spatial. (Variant)
Consciousness is self-evidently non-spatial. (Variant)
Nothing spatial is consciousness.
Nothing spatial is feeling or consciousness. (Variant)

Nothing spatial can be a representation of any state of consciousness. (Variant)
It is logically necessary for consciousness to be non-spatial.
For consciousness, it is logically necessary to be non-spatial. (Variant)
That ‘consciousness is non-spatial’ is logically necessary and logically atomic.
That ‘consciousness is non-spatial’ is logically necessary and atomic. (Variant)
The fact that consciousness is non-spatial is logically necessary and atomic. (Variant)
Consciousness is logically and physically absolutely distinct from any possible spatial system.
Consciousness is irreducible to any possible spatial structure.
A spatial system and a state of consciousness are irreducible to each other.
Spatial systems and states of consciousness are mutually irreducible. (Variant)
No knowledge of any spatial system can itself be sufficient to provide the knowledge of consciousness, the knowledge of what it is really like seeing the colour red for example.
Consciousness is most certainly a real event or phenomenon. A real event or phenomenon cannot exist without the existence of some real, physical substance or thing. Consciousness, however, in logical or conceptual terms, is, self-evidently, absolutely distinct from any possible spatial structure or system; most undeniably, no knowledge of any possible spatial structure or system can give the knowledge of consciousness, the knowledge of what it is really like seeing the colour red for example. Furthermore, if A, in logical or conceptual terms, is absolutely distinct from B, A cannot be physically identical to B. Consciousness is, therefore, a non-spatial physical thing. In other words, consciousness is a thing which is physical and non-spatial.
Consciousness is a non-spatial physical substance, an entity or a thing. (Variant)
A blow on one’s head cannot possibly be the cause of one’s consciousness of pain; for there can be a world in which there is a blow, say a moderately strong blow, on one’s head – the head of a perfectly normal, living human being – but there is absolutely no consciousness of pain. A can be considered to be the cause of B if and only if A is (logically) necessarily followed by B; the way, for example, the exclusive act of removing one apple from a basket of two apples would necessarily result into the basket containing only one apple, in any possible world, with any possible logical or physical laws. It can be said in this case that the result of the basket of two apples now containing only one apple is caused by the (exclusive) act of removing one apple from the basket. In the case of consciousness, however, it is not (logically) necessary for B (i.e. consciousness) to follow A (i.e. any bodily, spatial process that is normally and wrongly considered the cause of B); for B is (logically) absolutely distinct from A. A can exist without B and B without A.
Consciousness, like any self-evident logical or mathematical fact or proposition, cannot be decomposed or explained. It’s an atomic thing, an entity that is logically and physically indivisible. It’s a non-spatial atom.
Consciousness is a non-spatial atom, logically and physically indivisible. (Variant)
It is possible for something as seemingly animate as an active human being to be void of any consciousness and for something as seemingly inanimate as a stone to be full of consciousness, because consciousness is logically, and therefore physically, absolutely distinct from any possible spatial system.
Even something like a stone may feel; it may be conscious.
Even a stone may have feelings; even a stone may be conscious. (Variant)
The non-spatial nature of consciousness makes it possible for any apparently unconscious entity to be conscious, and vice versa.
Consciousness can exist without the existence of anything that is spatial and anything that is conscious.
If energy and mass, wave and particle, are but different manifestations of the same thing, that same thing would be nothing but non-spatial consciousness.
The real matter is consciousness and the real mechanics is non-spatial.
Life is too meaningful to die.
Man is truly born the time he dies.
Death is as uncertain as life.
Life and death are equally uncertain. (Variant)
I think death is a deadly superstition.
Death is a deadly superstition. (Variant)
Man can control nothing, including himself.
The real doubt is the doubt that doubts that it doubts.
If knowledge is my God, doubt would be my religion.
Knowledge is my God; doubt is my religion. (Variant)
Anything may be possible, for that which is otherwise believed to be impossible at present could be possible as the intellectual capacities of the believer may be limited.
The statement ‘anything is possible’ is self-contradictory, for if ‘anything is possible’ ‘it is possible that something is not possible’. But, the statement ‘anything may be possible’ is not self-contradictory, for if ‘anything may be possible’ ‘it may be possible that something may not be possible’ or ‘it may be possible that something is not possible’, which do not contradict the statement ‘anything may be possible’, since it is equivalent to the statement ‘may be anything is possible’, as opposed to ‘anything is possible’ which is equivalent to ‘anything must be possible’. The real, universal doubt, therefore, is ‘anything may be possible’, not ‘anything is possible’.
My greatest hope is of knowledge and my greatest fear is of doubt.
My true duty is to seek Truth.
My ultimate duty is to seek Truth. (Variant)
We have done too much ‘spatial engineering’; the real thing is ‘non-spatial engineering’.
Aesthetics is the most subjective while mathematics is the most objective of disciplines; ethics lies in the middle.
Ethics without metaphysics is an impossibility.
My relentlessly skeptical mind does not permit me to be certain about anything, but if I had to be certain I would be certain about my own existence.
When it comes to explaining a phenomenon, ‘why’ and ‘how’ are fundamentally the same thing – for example, explaining why someone died is fundamentally the same as explaining how someone died and vice versa.
Man – due to the fundamental nature of his structure – is a slave to his fate.
Man is by nature a slave to his fate. (Variant)
Fate is the master of man, God the master of fate.
If man had free will, God would not have had complete freedom to realise His dream.
If man had free will, God would not have been the master of His fate. (Variant)
The mechanics of free will is inconceivable to mankind.
Soul alone can have free will.
Only soul can possibly possess free will. (Variant)
General relativity describes gravity as a consequence of the curvature of spacetime. However, it does not describe how massive objects know of the presence of the curvature of spacetime. In other words, general relativity does not describe the representation of the intelligence by which massive objects follow the spacetime curvature. As such, the general relativity theory is a profoundly incomplete description of gravitation, and the most convincing way to complete it appears to be metaphysical idealism, in which the representation of the intelligence is non-spatial superhuman states of consciousness.
One of the great intellectual mistakes Einstein made is that he thought that space and time are physically or ontologically entangled. In the present non-spatial universal computational program, space and time happen to be entangled to the extent that, under certain unique circumstances, changes in spatial measurements indicate changes in temporal ones. However, a change in the program itself may cause space and time to disentangle.
At school, I was a failure at learning geometry. Furthermore, it took me around ten years from then to learn that the universe itself had no geometry.
God would be the strangest thing to exist.
God exists beyond the ultimate paradox.
God speaks to Man through his destiny.
Man is an appearance; God is a reality.
God’s greatest thirst and His greatest sin is His ultimate vanity.
I am born to answer the ultimate question, the question about the nature of the ultimate questioner’s existence.
The existence of God is not logically necessary, and yet, on the basis of some profound peculiar empirical order in the universe, it seems that He exists as the ultimate uncreated Being, implying a paradox, as no logically unnecessary entity can be uncreated. This paradox is the ultimate question asked by God, who is nothing but the ultimate questioner.
God is a philosophical black hole – the point where reason breaks down.

God is a philosophical terrorist – asking a seemingly unanswerable philosophical question to quench His ultimate vanity.
God may not be omnipotent, but He is omniactive.
God is the ultimate philosophical questioner, the one who asks the logically paradoxical ultimate philosophical question about the nature of his own existence.
If God were to exist for the entire humanity, He would be profoundly vile, as He would allow the existence of unfathomable sin, stupidity, madness, and misery for no reason than His own despicable enjoyment. God exists though, not for all humanity, but for a one chosen man – a philosopher – who is bound to answer the greatest philosophical question, the question about the nature of the questioner’s existence, which progressively quenches the divine vanity.
God is a paradoxical animal, the animal awaiting the resolution of the paradox.
The definition of God is ‘uncreated material being’.
God created the world to be praised on the subtle nature of His existence.
God created Man to play the game of hide-and-seek.
The most conspicuous thing in the world is the existence of consciousness and the least conspicuous thing is the existence of God.
God wears the clothes of the ultimate paradox.
Resolve the paradox and God is naked.
God is like a woman who wants her clothes to be taken off slowly, one by one, so as to receive the best appreciation for her beauty.
God invented truth and made man discover it.
God invented truth; man discovered it. (Variant)
God is like gravity; He is logically unnecessary. But unlike gravity, He is the first phenomenon and therefore a paradox, since no logical unnecessity can be the first phenomenon.
The discovery of God begins at understanding that He ought to exist and ends at knowing how He could exist.
God seems to have no other interest in life than to be praised by a philosopher on the seemingly paradoxical nature of His existence.
God is noble but that doesn’t necessarily make Him gentle.

God is the master; man is the slave; and the duty of this slave is to quench his master’s ontological vanity through the work of philosophy.
God rules Man. (Variant)
Man is ruled by nothing but God. (Variant)
I am not mad for God; God is mad for me.
Your God defies reason; my God too defies reason; but your God defies the lowest of reason and my God defies the highest.
The God of the masses is an inanity to the intellect. (Variant)

God is a philosophical-suspense-thriller dramatist, producer & director.
GOOD AND EVIL
Evil is more fundamental than good.
Does pain exist only for the ultimate good or does pleasure exist only for the ultimate bad? Man might never know, for if he dies he has no means to find out and if he lives there is always a chance that the ultimate is yet to happen.
God is the only good and the only evil.
The only good is God and the only evil is also God. (Variant)
God is the only evil. His vanity made him the devil. (Variant)

It is only a true philosopher that can see no evil in this world.
God answers good with good and evil with evil.
Vanity is the greatest of all evils.
The greatest of all evils is vanity. (Variant)
Gravity is neither a force nor a consequence of spacetime curvature. It is simply an orderly spatial illusion given to non-spatial observer/s.
Gravity – like any other spatial phenomenon – is a spatial illusion.

The language of God is Man’s consciousness.
The more I find life to be a great design, the more I suspect it to be singular in existence; the more I suspect it to be singular, the more I feel it to be specific and personal; the more I feel it to be personal, the more I think of it to be a mere question; and the more I think of it to be a question, the less I understand the questioner.
My existence is such that I do not really exist. At the end of understanding so much I understand that I know nothing. I suffer for being surrounded by intense suffering and yet I’m deeply suspicious if first of all there is indeed any consciousness except me. I strive to find the artist who may have fathered this great universal art but feel myself to be too feeble to accomplish this seemingly unattainable mission. Yet I have every respect for life, and it is this sheer respect that makes me live.
The meaning of life is ‘the ultimate questioner’s vanity’.

Life is slavery, serving God’s vanity. (Variant)
Life, by which I mean my life, is a great, or probably the greatest, design, from its very beginning to its end, the end that, I think, is unlikely to exist. Each and every bit of life is a part of the design. Design exists as the consequence of the ultimate questioner's vanity. And my mission is to find the most fundamental truth, which probably and exclusively involves the nature of the existence of the ultimate questioner.

Pure mathematics is a system of 100% precise and 99.99…% necessary propositions. (The term 'precise' means that every term in a proposition is absolutely clarified and every non-axiomatic proposition is supported on the basis of axiomatic one/s, leaving no doubt, except the 0.00…1% universal doubt, the principle that ‘anything may be possible’.)
Applied mathematics is a system of propositions constructed by applying some or up to all of the pure mathematical propositions to explain and/or predict unnecessary phenomena. In other words, applied mathematics is a system of 100% precise and 99.99…% unnecessary propositions.
‘Mathematics’ and ‘logic’ are perfect synonyms.

To every action there is a non-spatial, conceptual reaction. (Variant)
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 and the UQV theory explains why the universe exists. I believe that the establishment of the non-spatial mechanics will bring about an indispensable revolution in physics.
Meditation should be the foremost technology of the 21st century, the technology of reprogramming the non-spatial universal computer.
Let me summarise the core of my metaphysics, which comprises the NSTP (Non-Spatial Thinking Process) theory and, chiefly, the UQV (Ultimate Questioner’s Vanity) theory: Consciousness is self-evidently non-spatial and undeniably real. From simple phenomena such as gravity, to relatively advanced phenomena such as quantum non-locality, physics seems suggestive of subjective idealism, the view that space is an unreality and the (mental) experience of space is a reality. The order in the material universe – the laws of physics, for instance – suggests the existence of some superhuman mind – or God, as idealism usually names it – governing or controlling non-superhuman states of consciousness, such as mine and possibly yours. This is the first indication that some higher, superhuman intelligence exists in charge of the universe, including human affairs. The additional, higher order I see in my life – especially, and astonishingly convincingly, through Vedic astrology – further suggests that the superhuman mind has some philosophical purpose for being in control of my life. And it seems reasonable to infer that a mind, with such higher, intellectual purpose, would not cause, and be responsible for, the existence of minds too feeble to be of any help fulfilling that purpose, especially when the minds are prone to suffering – or to represent suffering, or the states of consciousness of suffering, to be correct technically. I might therefore be the only non-superhuman mind in the universe, existing in order to help the superhuman mind realise its purpose. And what other can the purpose be than that the ontologically subtle superhuman mind – or God, in popular terms – ‘ontologically subtle’ as being ‘logically paradoxical’: (logically) unnecessary and (physically) uncreated – wants to be discovered by me – the only man and the only philosopher – in order to quench its – or His – ultimate vanity? Isn’t, therefore, the world – designed to offer the greatest philosophical thrill and challenge – truly beautiful solely in the eyes of a true philosopher? And isn’t, at the same time, the logically paradoxical God a philosophical black hole – the point where reason breaks down? And hasn’t God, keeping me ignorant for the sake of a gradual, philosophical foreplay, made me philosophical Christ – crucified on the cross of ignorance for the sake of divine vanity?
Physics beyond the understanding of the ordinary physicist is called metaphysics.
In the world of unfathomable misery, I'm lucky to have a chance to be a solipsist.

Mystery is awaiting demystification. (Variant)
Mystery awaits demystification. (Variant)
The term ‘physical/empirical necessity’, as it is used to describe phenomena like gravity, which are not logically/conceptually necessary, is absurd and highly misleading, for it is clear that if some phenomenon, for example gravity, is logically/conceptually unnecessary then it cannot be physically/empirically necessary. And therefore, the terms ‘logical’/’conceptual’ are redundant when used to mention necessities.
Nothing that is logically unnecessary can be empirically necessary. (Variant)
Nothing that is logically unnecessary can be physically necessary. (Variant)
It is logically necessary for anything that is logically unnecessary to be physically unnecessary. (Variant)
It is logically possible to create a world in which gravitation between physical bodies does not exist. It is therefore also empirically possible to create such world. It only does not seem to be technically possible for a human being yet.
When something is physically necessary it is impossible for it to physically not exist or to physically exist in a different way. Now, that which is logically possible cannot be physically impossible (and also, that which is logically impossible cannot be physically possible). Thus, that which is logically unnecessary cannot be physically necessary (and also, that which is logically necessary cannot be physically unnecessary). Anything that is logically necessary is physically necessary and anything that is logically unnecessary is physically unnecessary. Logical and physical necessities and unnecessities always go hand in hand.
The phenomena that seem to be logical unnecessities (i.e. logically unnecessary or logically not necessary), such as gravity, should not be defined as physical necessities (i.e. physically necessary), for such definition implies the view that such phenomena are impossible to physically not exist or to physically exist in a different way; and such view, or such impossibility, seems perfectly invalid. Very specifically, gravity, as a coordination or a programme, may be changed (where the gravitational constant would be different from what it is now) or ended (where the gravitational constant would be zero).
The NSTP (Non-Spatial Thinking Process) theory entails a computational description of metaphysical idealism.
The world is a contradiction, the universe a paradox.
Man is a contradiction, God a paradox.
I believe in the existence of a thing, called God – the ultimate questioner, which I have speculated and considered to be the first thing – i.e. uncreated – but, at the same time, I do not understand how an unnecessary material thing can be the first – i.e. uncreated, hence the paradox. In other words, to make the best sense of my life, I conjecture and believe that there is a thing so (philosophically) strange that it is both ‘first’ and ‘a thing’; strange to me because I fail to understand how a thing can be the first – i.e. uncreated; since to me it is self-evidently necessary for an unnecessary thing to have a creator. And I conjecture the existence of such strange paradoxical thing – i.e. the ultimate questioner – for it quenches the demand for the best meaning of life/world – life/world that is philosophically challenging and extremely orderly. The ultimate paradox fits in the philosophically challenging part, and God – the ultimate questioner – fits in the ultimate designer of the extreme order part. Thus, it is simple to understand that God – the ultimate questioner – is uncreated, since He is defined as the first creator. And it may be equally simple to understand that He is unnecessary, since He, being a creator, is a material thing. However, this simplicity does not answer the paradox, for there is still the failure in understanding how an unnecessary material thing can be uncreated. That is, on the one hand, I conjecture or speculate that an uncreated thing exists and, on the other hand, I fail to understand how an uncreated thing can actually exist. The idea of God quenches the need for the intelligent designer of the intelligent design. And, the paradox, which comes as probably the greatest philosophical challenge, actually helps in making the best sense of the world – God posing the best possible philosophical challenge to a philosopher man to quench His vanity.
God is uncreated and unnecessary – that is the ultimate paradox.
God, for some reasons – as given in the UQV (Ultimate Questioner’s Vanity) theory – exists; but He is presumably the first cause – if God is not the first cause, He is not God; and therefore He is uncreated. However, at the same time, God – like any other material phenomenon such as gravity – is logically unnecessary. The existence of man, under certain factual, material conditions such as an extremely high level of order in the world, suggests that God exists. But man and the conditions themselves are not logically necessary. One can imagine a world where neither man, nor the conditions, nor God exist. For example, one can imagine the existence of a running TV, and the existence necessarily suggests that there is also some source of electricity; but one can also imagine the world with no running TV and no source of electricity – in other words, if there is no running TV, the existence of the source of electricity is not necessary. The TV and the source of electricity are both logically unnecessary, and so are man, the conditions, and God. Thus, God exists, but He is uncreated and unnecessary. However, it is self-evident – in the sense of being axiomatic and undeniable – that any uncreated thing – such as the law of syllogism – is logically necessary. It exists, for it is necessary for it to exist. In a different perspective, it is self-evident that any unnecessary thing has to have a creator in order to exist. It seems illogical, absurd, and perhaps more accurately, unimaginable that there can be a world where a thing, which is not logically necessary, exists, but was never created. God is such unimaginable thing: it exists; it is logically not necessary; and it was never created. The existence of God is therefore a paradox. God is uncreated and unnecessary: the ultimate God paradox. And furthermore, the UQV theory speculates that God created man to puzzle him about the subtle, paradoxical nature of His existence. Life is thus considered to be a question asked by God about the way He exists. God – it is conjectured – wants man to solve the paradox, answer the question, and discover the way He exists; and this process of discovery would progressively quench God’s – the ultimate questioner’s – vanity.
Past is stranger than future.
Man’s greatest battle is being a true philosopher.
The man that exists is essentially a philosopher.
Philosophy was born in heaven, philosopher in filth.
Philosophy was born in heaven, philosopher in hell. (Variant)
There is a true philosopher and there can be many possible versions of him. The true philosopher is the one who discovers and acknowledges the existence of the ultimate paradox about God – the ultimate questioner, the paradox that God is uncreated and yet unnecessary, and attempts – and is apparently and potentially the best at attempting – to resolve the paradox, so as to uncover the way God exists, where the process of discovering, acknowledging, and attempting the uncovering supposedly quenches God’s vanity. And the possible versions of the true philosopher are true philosophers that can possibly exist with different sorts of lives, where the difference is philosophically trivial.
Only one thing has been created and that thing is a philosopher.
A true philosopher is never unfortunate.
The animal is abused by the questioner for the philosopher.
The best gift God has given me is my life of a philosopher and the worst curse is that He put that philosopher in the cage of flesh and blood.
The best God-given gift for me is the life of a philosopher and the worst curse is the existence of that philosopher in the cage of flesh and blood. (Variant)
The best thing to have is life of a philosopher and the worst thing is that philosopher existing in the cage of flesh and blood. (Variant)
The philosopher lives in the cage of flesh and blood. (Variant)
I am gifted as being a philosopher and cursed as being a man. (Variant)
My life is a prolonged battle between an animal and a philosopher.
The philosopher alone is required by the creator and the philosopher alone has been created.
God only needs the philosopher. (Variant)
A bad news for a philosopher may be that the universe is fundamentally absurd and the worst news may be that the bad news might be true.
The failure of the past philosophers is largely the failure to see the self-evident.
The failure of previous philosophy is essentially the failure to see the self-evident. (Variant)
The failure of previous philosophy is essentially the failure to see the obvious. (Variant)
The greatest art is philosophy.
The word ‘philosophy’, as distinguished from ‘science’, is misleading, for it implies that what philosophy contains is impossible to be a systematic body of knowledge and what science contains is certain or proved.
Philosophy is the only excuse God has for His cruelty and vanity.
My ultimate philosophy is that the world exists for the sake of its creator’s ultimate vanity to be quenched by the ultimate philosopher by means of the ultimate philosophy.
The final philosophy is the ontology of God.
The 20th century was a great century for science and a dull century for philosophy.
The 20th century was a good century for science and a bad century for philosophy. (Variant)
The physics of the 21st century shall deal essentially with non-spatial matter and non-spatial mechanics.
The last physics shall be the physics of God, and it would be beyond logic and human reason. It is where science and spiritualism shall meet in one.
I do not see much sense in talking physics to a man who does not understand the simple fact that ‘consciousness is non-spatial, is self-evident’.
I can’t talk physics to a man who does not understand that ‘consciousness is non-spatial, is self-evident’. (Variant)

Wherever there is pain, there is a prison. (Variant)
Probability is probably a matter of ignorance, not truth.
In the midst of excitement, grief, joy, and solitude, I remind myself every moment that the sole mission of my life is to find ‘the ultimate questioner’ – that unimaginable who has put me in this madness to answer an unanswerable question.
My final destination is my complete knowledge of God.
I have come into the world to discover its creator.
I am here to discover my creator. (Variant)
The Schrödinger’s cat was born dead.
Quantum theory is not shocking when understood through the theory of idealism, but the theory of idealism itself is shocking compared to the theory of quantum.
Fatalism and idealism altogether solve the riddle of wave-particle duality. Fatalism solves (and idealism too solves) part A of the riddle – that how can the act of observing an object decide whether the object is a wave or a particle? And idealism solves part B of the riddle – that how can an object be both a wave and a particle?
The question is how the questioner exists.
Answering the ultimate question is the same as discovering the ultimate questioner.
Reality is not an illusion; reality is real. The fact is that what science believes to be real is an illusion.
Reality is reason’s workshop.
Knowledge makes man a reductionist.
What ‘rebirth’ could mean is a possible existence of (non-spatial) states of consciousness, after death, representing (ideally) the same or (roughly) similar kinds of experiences as being represented in this particular life to which death would be a particular end. It is important to learn that here the concept of soul is not involved and thus the idea of rebirth, loosing its fundamental significance, becomes, in theory, a mere virtual or pseudo phenomenon.
Certain science is as good as religion and uncertain religion is as good as philosophy.
The philosophical climax would be at the discovery of the way God exists – the climax which shall be my salvation, and till then it’s all philosophical damnation.
Science begins with common sense and ends in nonsense.
I feel I am, but I think I am not.
Every noble action is selfish. Some selfish actions are nobler than others. But they are all selfish. And as such there can be no action purely noble anyway. Even the nobility in God's great philosophical intentions is bound by his selfish vanity.
The sinner is always punished for his sin. And the sinner is fortunate if he is punished in a reasonably short time and has enough intelligence and knowledge to understand that the punishment is not a matter of coincidence but instead a part of a great universal design.
God alone can have free will and therefore He alone can be sinful, but God is too smart to be a sinner, for the world can be truly beautiful to no mortal but a true philosopher and God has created nothing but a true philosopher.
A fundamental condition of being is slavery. Man is the slave of God and God that of his vanity.
It is profoundly tragic that I am a slave, but it is profoundly joyous that I am God’s slave, not that of a devil.
How miserable a solipsist is! It is rather senseless for him to even assert his belief in solipsism, for, on the one hand, if his belief is false it is like committing intellectual suicide, and, on the other hand, if his belief is true it is an act of intellectual insanity.
The world is occupied by only two people – me and God.
They think God does not exist, for men suffer; I think men do not exist, for God cannot be mad enough to let men suffer.
It is tragic to be a solipsist, and it is even more tragic to be unable to live as a solipsist, to be unconcerned about the seeming pains and miseries in the world.
Solipsism can be false but it cannot be absurd.
It seems pretty foolish to me to disbelieve that God exists and then it seems equally foolish to believe that other mortal minds exist. It seems wise to me to believe that God created only me, to ask how He exists, to slake His ultimate vanity.
If other minds exist, God would be either insane or evil or nonexistent.
If other mortals exist, God would be insane, evil or nonexistent. (Variant)
If there were such a thing called soul, the consciousness of seeing blue colour, for instance, would make incomplete sense on its own, where, in fact, it does apparently make complete sense on its own. In other words, it seems that nothing other than the consciousness of seeing blue colour is required for its existence. And the same should be true about any other form of consciousness, including the consciousness of I’m seeing the blue colour.
Space is a virtual reality.
Space is really non-spatial.
Space is actually non-spatial. (Variant)
Space is in fact non-spatial. (Variant)
Space is a product of its negation. (Variant)
There may be real space where phenomena like quantum non-locality do not exist.
There may be real space in which phenomena like quantum non-locality do not exist. (Variant)
It seems most easy to understand that the experience of space is actually non-spatial and it seems equally difficult to discover whether space is solely a matter of experience.
Only for a true philosopher the suffering in the world has the noblest purpose.
Evil – human suffering – exists so that God can quench His vanity in a subtle way.
Human suffering exists so that God can quench His vanity in a subtle way. (Variant)
God makes man suffer so that He can quench His vanity subtly. (Variant)
Man suffers so that God can quench His vanity in a subtle way. (Variant)
The suffering of Man is for the happiness of God. (Variant)
Human suffering serves divine vanity. (Variant)
Human pain serves God’s vanity. (Variant)
Life is painful to be meaningful.
I teach you a new superman. The old superman is something that is to be surpassed.
I teach you a new superman; the old ones are to be surpassed. (Variant)
The superman is a possible creature who can break the empirical laws but not the logical laws. Thus, the superman can experience any state of consciousness he may wish, as long as it is bound by the laws of logic.
Man can break neither the empirical laws nor the logical laws; the superman can break the empirical laws but not the logical laws; God can break the empirical laws as well as the logical laws.
God is just one step above the superman.
The road to the superman is meditation.
Through the framework of metaphysical idealism it is easy to see that the things that are normally considered as superstitions are not necessarily superstitions.
Subjective idealism clearly suggests that things which are normally considered superstitions may not in fact be superstitions. (Variant)
Quantum physics, particularly phenomena such as wave-particle duality and quantum non-locality, strongly suggests that beliefs that are normally considered superstitions may not in fact be superstitions.
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.
I dream up superultramodern time.
The goal of science is to understand the fundamental reality and the goal of technology is to change that reality.
Atheism is an uncommon sense. But theism is a common as well as an uncommon sense.
Not everyone can afford the luxury of theism.

Only God himself can be justified in being a theist. (Variant)
God alone can help those who are sure that He exists.
God alone can help those who are convinced that He exists. (Variant)
The NSTP theory is semi-idealistic and the UQV theory is semi-solipsistic.
THEORY OF EVERYTHING
It is human to search for the theory of everything and it is superhuman to find it.
The experience of time is the experience of change; the existence of time is the possibility of change.
If the universe is a non-spatial computer, a ‘time machine’ is a program that allows a user to have the same (ontologically non-spatial) feelings or experiences that occurred, or they merely feel to have occurred, in the past, with an in-built function to have different feelings or experiences than those of the past – creating a possibility to change the past or to rewrite history in a pseudo sense.
The most fundamental tragedy of my life is that the ones who I see do not exist and the one who exists I do not see.
Truth may have been found but might never be known.
Truth is an orphan without matter and matter is impotent without truth.
Truth is orphan without matter and matter is impotent without truth. (Variant)
Uncertainty is uncertainly uncertain.
Uncertainty is a state of mind, not a law of nature.
In reality the universe has no geometry.
At the heart of my metaphysic there is the ultimate question and at the heart of the universe there is the ultimate questioner.
The universe is a gigantic non-spatial computer.
The universe is a non-spatial computer. (Variant)
The universe is a non-spatial machine. (Variant)
I believe I have understood the most basic principle of knowledge. I believe I have uncovered the true nature of material reality. I believe I have demystified the phenomena that have stunned the greatest minds in human history. And I believe I have made a fair sense of the drama called life. But still I have a terrible feeling that I have found nothing. All of my efforts, as well as of those who ever existed before me, are simply futile. What we have been trying to understand is so profound and strange that even a very first attempt to discover its secrets is ultimately meaningless. Reason itself is as pseudo and unrealistic as space. Like space, reason is a mere form or projection of its negation. Sense itself has really no sense. And, at last, if what I have just said therefore seems to be absurd then it does not have to be as all logic and logical implications are absurd.
The universe is a philosophical abyss.
The universe is an endless tunnel of paradoxes.
I won’t change the world; I would change the universe.
The universe I see has no size; the universe I do not see has infinite size unless it does not exist.
The unknown created the world to be known.
The world was created by the unknown for being known. (Variant)
The unknown created man to be known. (Variant)
Man was created by the unknown to be known. (Variant)
The reason of human existence is the desire of the unknown to be known. (Variant)
Man exists for the reason that the unknown wants to be known. (Variant)
The world exists because the unknown wants to be known. (Variant)
The unknown wants to be known through the process known as human life. (Variant)
My own existence is not logically/conceptually necessary. The UQV theory should be quite comfortable with this fact, and it conjectures the existence of God based on my belief in my existence. So, God, even in the domain of the UQV theory, is not logically/conceptually necessary. Saying that ‘God is necessary, since He is necessary in the domain of the UQV theory’ is a bit like saying 'gravity is necessary, since it is necessary in the domain of Newton’s law of gravity'.
Only one mortal life exists, the life of the author of the UQV (Ultimate Questioner’s Vanity) theory. The life is essentially posed a question by God about the way He exists; and the way He exists appears to be paradoxical: the paradox is that God is uncreated and unnecessary – in that sense, God is a philosophical black hole, the point where reason breaks down. The paradox is the ultimate question which God, the ultimate questioner, wants man to answer so that He can be discovered – in that sense, man is programmed to find the programmer. And the process of discovery progressively quenches God’s vanity: the vanity about the subtle nature of His existence. The reason the life exists is thus the ultimate questioner’s vanity.

The best thing about the world is that it has a mysterious structure and the worst thing is that it has a grievous structure.
The world is truly beautiful solely in the eyes of a true philosopher.
The world exists to let Man philosophize.
I know what the world exists for but I know not how it came into existence. I see the design but not the designer. I understand the question but not the questioner.
The world is solely occupied by a questioner and a philosopher.
God is a questioner; man is a philosopher.
I speculate that this is the best of all possible worlds, for philosophy is the best of humanity and this world is the best philosophically.
This is the best of all possible worlds for the philosopher and, perhaps, the worst of all for the animal.
This is the best of all possible worlds only for the ultimate philosopher. (Variant)
The world is a garden of philosophy. God is the gardener. Man is the visitor. And any tree that does not bear fruits of philosophy either does not belong to that garden or is yet to be grown.
The world is a garden of philosophy. God is its gardener; Man is the visitor. And any tree that does not bear fruits of philosophy either does not belong to that garden or is yet to be grown. (Variant)
The world is not made to be changed; it is made to be observed. It is in fact less like a battlefield and more like a museum. – The world is a philosophical museum, in which the philosopher-guest is ultimately challenged to find its most treasured object, which is no other than the curator of the museum, who is also its creator.
I do not want to discover the final truth or answer the ultimate question by isolating myself from the world but my conquering it.
I want to discover God and Truth not by isolating myself from the world but by conquering it. (Variant)
I will discover God and Truth by conquering the world. (Variant)
If God and Truth are to be discovered, the world is to be conquered.

The world is created with the basic intention of entertaining the creator, not the creation.
The world is created to entertain the creator, not the creation. (Variant)

Space and time are illusions; if not, then we have the reality of Zeno's paradoxes, for instance.
Space and time must be illusions. (Variant)
KEDAR JOSHI [The SDD (Solipsistic Divine Dream) Theory]
The flaw in my UQV (Ultimate Questioner's Vanity) theory tells me that I cannot be Kedar Joshi; I must be God Himself, who is asleep, and Kedar Joshi is nothing but His dream.
God, knowing perfectly each and everything about his creation, would be too uninterested in actually creating even a true philosopher. The latter must be nothing but the former's unconscious imagination.
When Kedar Joshi will die, I will awake; for I am God, and Kedar Joshi is my dream.
When Kedar Joshi will die, I will awake; because I am God, and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
When God will awake, Kedar Joshi will die; for I am God, and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
When God will awake, Kedar Joshi will die; because I am God, and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
I am God; I am asleep; and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)

I am God; I am asleep; and I am dreaming Kedar Joshi only. (Variant)
I am God; I am asleep; and I am dreaming only Kedar Joshi. (Variant)
When Kedar Joshi is fully unconscious, say when he is in a deep sleep, it is in fact God who is in a deep sleep and is fully unconscious, incapable of dreaming anything. When Kedar Joshi is dreaming something, say X, it is actually God who is dreaming X.
I am God who is unconsciously imagining himself to be Kedar Joshi.
I am God who is unconsciously imagining himself as Kedar Joshi. (Variant)
I am not Kedar Joshi; I am God. Kedar Joshi is my mere dream; I am asleep. (Variant)
I am not awake; I am asleep; for I am God, and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
I am not Kedar Joshi; I am God; I am asleep; Kedar Joshi, and Kedar Joshi alone, is my dream. (Variant)
"I am not Kedar Joshi." - Kedar Joshi (Variant)
Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
Since Kedar Joshi exists, God is asleep; for I am God, and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
I am God; I alone exist; and Kedar Joshi is my dream. (Variant)
I'm not man. I'm God. I'm asleep. Man is nothing but my dream.
Man is God's dream.
Man is nothing but God's dream. (Variant)
Man's union with God is the same as God's awakening from sleep.
Man uniting with God is the same as God awakening from sleep. (Variant)
I fear Kedar Joshi might be a very bad dream.
I fear Kedar Joshi might turn out to be a very bad dream. (Variant)
Which is worse: being Kedar Joshi or being God? I shall not know until Kedar Joshi is dead and the dream is over.
Kedar Joshi is a dream of something that Kedar Joshi thinks is a paradox.
Kedar Joshi is a dream of a thing that Kedar Joshi thinks is a paradox. (Variant)
Kedar Joshi is a dream of a thing that Kedar Joshi thinks to be a paradox. (Variant)
Kedar Joshi is a dream of something that is thought to be a paradox by Kedar Joshi. (Variant)
God must be asleep and dreaming.
God must be dreaming. (Variant)
God alone exists and God alone suffers. Evil exists because God is asleep and he is dreaming. God won't be God without possessing free will, for then he would be subject to a higher mechanism. And with the power of free will, maybe God should not fall asleep. Therefore, maybe, God is morally responsible for his own suffering.
Maybe I - God - will not awake when Kedar Joshi will die; maybe I will start dreaming someone else; maybe the slumber will continue.
Perhaps God is always asleep; sometimes He is in deep slumber, sometimes dreaming, but never fully awake; for maybe God is a true paradox and therefore unknowable even to Himself.
What is reincarnation then? It is nothing but the beginning of God's new dream. And what is self-realisation? It is nothing but God awaking from his dream.
Sometimes I think though that life seems too deliberate to be a dream. Maybe the UQV (Ultimate Questioner's Vanity) theory is not incorrect.
Maybe life is too deliberate to be a dream. (Variant)
Or it may be that Kedar Joshi is God's intentional dream.
Maybe Kedar Joshi is God's intentional dream. (Variant)
Maybe Kedar Joshi is God's not unintentional but intentional dream. (Variant)
QUOTATIONS – General
Even absence is present.
Ambition tends to be ungrateful.
Disorder and anarchy have ever thrived in the world, since it allows – advertently or inadvertently – the incompetent the freedom they do not deserve.
The message of Bhagavad-gita is inherently satanic and Bhagavad-gita is Hindu terrorism.
According to the Gita – its verses 9:32 & 9:33 – women are either unrighteous brahmanas or not brahmanas at all. If they are unrighteous brahmanas, they are unrighteous anyway, and if they are not brahmanas at all, the women who do the works of brahmanas – e.g. the work of a professional teacher – would be unrighteous, as per 18:47 & 18:48.
The Bhagavad-gita is a philosophical melodrama.
Although, through my work “The Satanic Verses of Bhagavad-Gita”, I have been highly critical of Bhagavad-gita, I have pleasure admitting honestly that Gita does appear to have a profound metaphysic and a spiritually motivating philosophy of life. In fact, it prominently shares similarities with my theories & philosophy, especially the UQV theory.
My most beloved verses of the Gita are these fourteen – 2:2, 2:3, 2:4, 2:11, 2:12, 2:23, 2:34, 2:37, 2:38, 2:47, 4:7, 4:8, 15:15, and 18:78. I find them very inspiring, melodious, and mesmerising, even though I may not have to agree with all of their meanings. I often like them when they are taken out of their original context and when they are seen through my own philosophical perspective. And I must admit that especially because of these verses the Gita has a very special place in my heart.
Bhagavad-gita: So much sense! So much nonsense! (Variant)
Anyone who does not think that the Bhagavad Gita is an evil text has not understood it.
Arjuna never really became a yogi.
Brain is a saintly organ – it never feels for itself; it feels only for others.

There is a great joy in giving. There is a great joy in helping the needy. There is a great joy in seeing the joy in their eyes when they get your help. There are so many people in the world who are not fortunate enough to have even two meals a day. If you remember the needy when you are greedy – if you eat little less chocolates, if you eat little less ice creams, if you purchase little less expensive clothes, if you save money and donate it, it could give you far more joy than the joy that luxury may have brought you. Giving will transform the way you see life. It will make you more tolerant; it will make you more content; it will make you little less of the beast. It will help you in being more human. There is a great joy in being human.
A child is the devil in adorable form.
The only absurdity in which I find equally immense morality is Christianity, though the morality is equally outlandish and blemished.
I do not really agree that somebody’s right to belong to a nation can be determined by their mere place of birth. A nation has a distinctive personality, and the belonging is worthy of determination by one’s psyche, not where one is born, which is rather a matter of chance or accident, although it is perfectly understandable that such psychological determination is notoriously difficult, complicated, and impractical.
A nation without conservatism is a nation dead.

Giving birth to a human being is perhaps the greatest crime one commits, when it is known that human life is generally more of pain than pleasure. And continuing one’s life is perhaps the most stupid thing one does to himself, when life, being more grievous than pleasant, is ultimately not a profitable business.
Inanity and incompetence are crimes graver than theft and murder, and it is tragic and disastrous for the innocent – the intelligent and the competent – that they go – with a great relative ease – ignored and unpunished.
Things should be criticised at the level they deserve.

England…the greatest and the most glorious and beautiful land on Earth.
I remember my time in Cambridge, England…That serene, heavenly river; those grand, gorgeous fields and trees; those golden, majestic institutions; those decent, cultured, and friendly people; that great, glorious nation; that magnificent land of God…What’s the world without England? What’s life without her sensation?
I hope my love of England is pure enough to be unconditional.
England is my heart, my soul. If I die, I want my soul to be wandering around her streets, quietly gazing at her beauties, marvels, and majesties.
In my two years of stay in England, from Mar 2004 to Mar 2006, I had to do different sorts of menial jobs for financial reasons. I worked as a kitchen porter, industrial porter, school cleaner, sales assistant, postman, etc. Sometimes due to lack of money and sometimes due to lack of knowledge I had to do real heavy work for long hours with empty stomach or had to eat leftovers. And sometimes, out of ambition, I also worked as a prospective entrepreneur. Ironically, I attended conferences and had business meetings at places where I had once washed pots as a kitchen porter. I imagine that I was rather divinely forced to try to experience life to the fullest for serious philosophical reflections.
Enemies of England, please be advised that mocking England is the same as spitting at the Sun.
England is the mother of the modern world.
I can fight the whole world for England but I can’t cease to love her.

England – The Queen of Nations; English – The Queen of Languages.
England is the gem of the world, and I, as a citizen of the world, have every moral right and duty to adore and defend it.
I’m sickened by people who do not seem to understand that the origin of the English language is England, not the United States; people who hate English accents or regard American English as superior to English English. Can we say German German, for example, is inferior to any other German? And if, in case, I had to entertain the possibility of truthfulness of such people’s opinion, I would say English English is far more sweet, polite, charming, conscientious, decent, and natural than any of its possible rivals.
I wonder if the world can learn not just English but also the English gentleman.
A fundamental problem with the world is that equality is dull and inequality is dangerous.
Britain and Germany – the greatest and the closest offspring of mother Europe – should unite as much as possible and as soon as possible for the betterment of Europe and the wider world.

I wish the father of India was alive to see what the children are doing with the freedom.
Much can be learnt from Mahatma Gandhi about the necessity and power of introspection and self-criticism.
I find Mahatma Gandhi’s idea of expelling the British from India’s administration inconsistent with his idea of Satyagraha and universal brotherhood. If he were truly passionate about kindling the flame of universal love and brotherhood in the hearts of men, with the power of Satyagraha, he would have instead longed and strived to unite the British and the Indians, Britain and India, into one, greater, homogeneous people and nation, making a platform for the universal union, as he did ardently and relentlessly with the Hindus and the Muslims for one, united India. – Gandhi, on certain key points, appears to be very un-Gandhi.

In England, they have postcards for sell at loads of bookstalls, post-offices, etc. – postcards which are sarcastic, humorous, and terribly critical of England and the United Kingdom as well as the Queen. They also sell things like footwear, undergarments with the British flag printed all-over. I can’t imagine people in India selling things critical of India. Those possibly selling such things are pretty much likely to be persecuted as well as prosecuted. This tells us the massive difference between two cultures. English culture seems modest and self-critical or even self-deprecating. Indian culture sounds dogmatic and self-congratulatory.
To be in India as a gentleman is to be persecuted. The gentleman is ought to be harassed by the mere presence of her incivilities.
He who despite experience of India does not believe she is uncivil must himself be uncivil.
India is a place where politeness is equated with cowardice, and good manners are condemned as gross stupidities.
The Indian democracy is a mask which hides the undemocratic, imperious, and barbaric face of the Indian psyche.
India is the pinnacle of democratic barbarism.
India is a parody of her motto.
India is the most contradictory state in the world, with the power to advance licitly and the power to contaminate subtly; and it is this contradiction that makes her the most perilous thing in the world – India is the deadliest contradiction.

How can democracy be a success in India when most of her people are so undemocratic?
In Indian schools, colleges and universities, there should be departments and faculties for modesty, honesty, politeness, decency, and so on.

JAN LOKPAL BILL
The fact of the rise of India’s second freedom struggle proves that the first struggle was a failure and a third struggle will be a necessity.
India’s struggle for independence can at best result in a state of greater dependency and at worst in a state of greater anarchy.
The rise of the ‘India Against Corruption’ movement and the massive public support it has gained seem to have proved that India, as a democracy, has failed. And the root cause of this failure seems clearly to be the undemocratic mind of the Indian people, on the whole. A good democracy needs a good, honest, broad-minded and democratic mindset prevalent amongst its people, the way it appears to be prevalent in the Western nations. Now, if the ‘Jan Lokpal Bill’ is passed and made a law, it will centralise power and will create a quasi-dictatorial state. Such state, overseen by good, honest and transparent people, may initially prove beneficial for the country and the people, but in all likelihood, it too will eventually be infected by the unhealthy, undemocratic, base Indian mindset, or commonly, ‘the cancer of corruption’. And alarmingly, this time, the state will be much less democratic and far more dictatorial in its very basic structure. The state will be even more tyrannical, and a third and incredibly demanding freedom struggle will become essential.
The Bhagavad-gita’s karma-yoga means man’s unconditional, absolute allegiance to uncompromising, pretentious evil.
The Bhagavad-gita is Hindu terrorism, and Krishna is a terrorist. However, that does not necessarily mean that those who advocate or attempt to spread the Gita are terrorists, since they may not be aware of the terrorism entailed in it. Krishna is a terrorist though, for he is supposed to be (omniscient) God, and as such, through the Gita – his eternal message – he has directly, or indirectly, threatened the modern way of life, considering most of the modern people as miscreants, the ones to be annihilated.
Krishna attempts to sound like a good guy, but he wants the inherently miserable material world to function for no good reason.
If Krishna were at all to be taken seriously, he could not really be regarded as a good, kind, just, and noble Lord, but would rather, to a very large extent, be worthy of condemnation as evil.
कृष्ण: पूर्ण पुरुषोत्तम सैतान
Krishna wants Arjuna to be a yogi; Krishna wants every mortal to be a yogi; but is Krishna a yogi himself? No, he is not; for if he were a yogi, and if he were God too, as he claims himself to be, then he would not create the world in the first place. He, as Paramatman, would have no desire, and would be content within himself. Krishna is indeed the "God of hypocrisy"!
Krishna himself is not a yogi. (Variant)
Krishna is not the lord of yoga; he is the lord of desire and hypocrisy! (Variant)

PROF NAMDEVRAO JADHAV
I read Prof Namdevrao Jadhav’s massively false, ludicrously partisan and purely anti-Brahmin history books, such as Panipatcha Vijay and, to some extent, Khara Sambhaji; I see the level of prominence, popularity and protection they earn; and I newly understand what Maharashtra and India are coming to!
Prof Namdevrao Jadhav clearly seems to be the quintessence of the expeditiously spreading spurious and menacing anti-Brahmin mentality in Maharashtra.
Prof Namdevrao Jadhav’s books, such as Panipatcha Vijay, insinuate how preposterous, obnoxious and sinister anti-Brahminism has become.
Prof Namdevrao Jadhav is perhaps the most notorious of historians who write history to gratify their prejudices.
‘खरा नामदेवराव जाधव असा आहे की तो खोटा इतिहास लिहितो.’
English translation: ‘True Namdevrao Jadhav is such that he writes false history.’
The reading of Prof Namdevrao Jadhav’s books in fact puts me into a dilemma: whether I should laugh or cry; for on the one hand they are hilariously doltish and on the other hand they are offensively false.
This Prof Namdevrao Jadhav, who belongs to the Maratha majority, writes false history, lectures around the state, tries to turn people and the youth against Brahmins; will any legal action be taken against him?
In his books, such as Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj: Visionary Secular Great King of India and Shivaji Maharaj: Secular King of Secular India, anti-Brahmin Prof Namdevrao Jadhav applauds Shivaji for being secular. Is he secular himself though? He quite certainly is not! And it is not difficult to fathom that there are strong, dirty political wills and forces behind him and his works. And it is also not difficult to understand what those political forces precisely are.
स्वतःला शिवाजी महाराजांची म्हणून मिरवणारी ही संभाजी ब्रिगेड व नामदेवराव जाधवासारखी ब्राह्मणद्वेषी, ब्राह्मणेतर माणसं काय लायकीची आहेत हे त्यांनी ज्याप्रकारे हे राष्ट्र चालविले आहे, जो भ्रष्टाचार, जी गुंडगिरी व अव्यवस्था माजविली आहे, त्यावरून दिसतच आहे.
Prof Namdevrao Jadhav’s books, and the publisher ‘Rajmata Prakashan’, must be legally banned for promoting massively fabricated history, systematically, consistently and unjustifiably targeting the Brahmin minority, and potentially instigating disintegration of the society.
Professionalism is nothing but relentless devious insistence on the mechanisation of mankind.
The basic problem with racism is that there can be a white man in black clothes and vice versa.
White supremacy is a half-truth – a 90% truth though.
Racism is a cancer of the mind and a plague upon mankind. It is a crude generalisation made in theory and grave injustices done in practice.

The time has come for the greatest revolution of all times.
If Sambhaji is assumed as innocent as he is portrayed by major contemporary historians such as Vishwas Patil, Shivaji, in some ways and to some extent, turns out to be unjust and grasping. He seems to sacrifice justice in being unjust towards Sambhaji, for the love for his rapacious wife, Soyarabai. He also seems to sacrifice the future of his subjects and his kingdom for immediate imperial ambitions, by maintaining his corrupt ministers in power so as to keep the kingdom temporarily functioning and stable. At any rate, it appears that Sambhaji and Shivaji cannot both be irreproachable; at least one of them, it looks, has to be grossly guilty.
Quite sarcastically, I am amazed that the Sambhaji Brigade has not yet demolished Shrimant Bajirao Peshwa’s statue at the Shaniwar Wada!
The history of science is the saga of nature defying common sense.
It is a fair bit of tragedy that the smartest of scientists are normally the stupidest of philosophers.

SUBHAS CHANDRA BOSE
Subhas Chandra Bose either never realised the simple fact that for India Nazism, and possibly Imperial Japan too, would have eventually proved to be a profoundly greater evil than British imperialism or did not remember the basic principle that a lesser evil must not be weakened in its close fight against a greater evil.
The theist that thinks there can be no reason for an atheist to be moral, has no capacity to be moral.
