With a thoughtful title and a catchy subtitle that is bound to make readers pick this book up,
What is Trading Factor? – Mathematics Beyond Einstein is a thought-provoking, eye-opening,
highly philosophical but engaging read. The philosophy is attained through logical, rational and
scientific means. That’s right! It is a sort of decoding of trading oneself, one’s emotional self
rather, for higher freedom.
Seeks to attain higher understanding of human action in this life and to connect the dots with
the larger purpose of human existence that is guided by the intellect which makes humans
supremely gifted living beings. However, if this intellect is not used and exploited properly then
we end up making life meaningless. This is what Dr. Vipin Gupta terms as the key difference
between being a meaning maker and a meaning shaper.
Meticulously arranged, from the very beginning of the book, the information is put down in a
systematic manner. Dr. Gupta breaks down the difficult concepts and rather vastly abstract
notions into simple terms through detailed explanation. The use of color-coded boxes,
illustrations, and charts or tables is very interesting and breaks the monotony of the book.
One is bound to absolutely love the writing style of Dr. Gupta. The book is whole in and of itself
and stands alone in a room with strong arguments and reasoning. It will appeal to the students
of philosophy and science both but it is meant for attentive and avid readers who have the
genuine interest to get through the concepts and attain clarity of the subject.
The goal of the book is to empower readers and make them understand that trading factor is
not an abstract numerological combination of the universal elements in human emotional states
but something that is innate within every individual. It is about understanding what limits the
freedoms of life, and strengthen oneself.
Embedded calculations and equations help readers derive the mathematical angle of human
emotional existence. This gives a metaphysical taste to an otherwise logical and scientific topic.
Hence, readers should not feel deterred by the use of Mathematics or Science in the book and
focus on making the most of this one of a kind read that is about living life on one’s own terms
and creating the best and making the most of one’s circumstances.

This type of book was new to me. In general, I liked Gupta’s writing style. He first presents the
technical aspects in a scientific and then translates it into language that will describe the
different applications of his theory. He applies multiple disciplines that sometimes collide, like
theology and biology, philosophy and chemistry, math and sociology, physics… etc., to explain
our reality through a scientific process.
Vipin Gupta introduces the ‘trading factor’ to describe how consciousness is not different from
an atom, and the value trading that happens between its elements when they interact produces
reactions which generate something new. He then takes this premise and applies it to different
aspects of our lives, showing readers how this trading method produces outcomes to better our
Very interesting, as I have never dwelled with existential questions very much. It made me think
and gave me a new perspective on how things that I have studied as sciences that are separate
from humanistic disciplines like math and physics can combine and give sense to things I
couldn’t wrap my brain around.
“What is Trading Factor” is a thought-provoking and ambitious book that presents an interesting
theory. One that will stimulate readers to open their minds and challenge themselves to go
further what they know and explore different perspectives to find answers. I give it five stars.

What Is Trading Factor shall capture your attention right from the title itself. The author has
done a tremendous job to show the intellectuals a new arena of mathematics that goes beyond
Einstein. To be honest, it takes immense courage to contradict someone like Einstein and I am
sure the readers will be astounded to see Dr. Gupta’s well-researched viewpoints.
The present book begins with a wonderful analogy as follows: Life becomes meaningful when
we have a mental map connecting the dots of our actions and their reactions on everyone. So
how can we make our life meaningful? By intellectually connecting our sustainability with
everyone around us.
While unleashing the oneness amongst reality and illusion, the author has prescribed a
management approach. It is educative, enlightening and interesting in its own way. It is evident
that the work is a comprehensive study of science with spirituality. The effort goes beyond non-
fiction or academic; rather as a reader, I found the concept quite different from the rat race of
self-help books. Now, if you ask me where to categorize this book; I would say, Dr. Vipin Gupta,
is perhaps paving his own niche in the non-fiction market.
Teaches the method to live life on your own terms. Neither philosophical nor preachy, unveils a
scientific and mathematical approach to how your life is guided. Imagine someone talking about
genetic code integrated with our technological growth! If you feel stuck in the time loop with
your consciousness growing and ever find your consciousness flowing away in space; you are
holding the correct book to answer your doubts.
If you ever feel what India’s ancient history has contributed to the world; I request you to read
the VIPIN series of books. India’s spiritual scriptures have more knowledge than one could ever
imagine and Dr. Gupta has taken this wonderful initiative to hold aloft India’s ancient wisdom on
the global platform. This book is resolute research done to wipe off the accumulated dust on
Indian ancient wisdom.
Would you be surprised if I tell you that this book can reverse your illusion into exponential
imagination? As a free mind, unchained of any inhibitions, we often grab the negative energy
first. The book answers the reason behind this chaotic indulgence and how it can be managed.
A highly influential book to refine our perspectives towards Nature, life and the cohesion
between the two. Informative, deep, serious and curious in chorus.

Vipin Gupta includes values to the elements’ components of the Universal concept he is
presenting. These components interact through trade, producing another component on the
next interactive level. Gupta goes into the nitty gritty of mathematical interaction, where
numerical values get traded. Keep in mind that these numbers are the values given to matter,
energy, cells, atoms… all elements of the universe in all its different manifestations and
I find Vipin Gupta’s concept of the trading factor being a catalyst for the universal creation
process fascinating. I also liked the perspective of ‘trade’ instead of ‘cause and effect’ when
speaking about how components of the universe in all its different dimensions affect each other.
The reader will immerse in physics terminology while explaining how all elements of
consciousness interact with animate and inanimate beings to create different realities. I
definitely recommend this book to those not intimidated by a challenging read, and those like
me that do not get discouraged and read it through to get the wisdom in the book.
The book is highly enticing and can be a standard handbook or recommended book of reading in
various courses or simply for broadening one’s understanding of life. Meticulously written with
depth of thought that takes a lot of strength and understanding by someone who loves both
philosophy and science and has mastered them equally.
Trading factor is the innate ability in every individual that gives them the intention to discover,
cultivate and develop the requirements to make life beautiful. In order to understand this Dr.
Gupta explains what meaning is firstly and how to decipher meaning with sound judgement and
through proper tools of understanding.
The colored boxes and cute illustrations provide something eye catchy and add to the
entertaining aspect of the text. Read the entire book to feel the essence of mathematical
reasoning and philosophical musings interlocking and blending into one another to create a
seamless amalgamation of scientific and philosophical. Partake in the process of revelatory
analysis of the thematic issues and feel enriched.
Highly engaging and interesting read to lovers of nonfiction, philosophy, mathematics and
science. A technical and particularly mathematical approach makes the book metaphysical as
there is blend of philosophical reasoning with the scientific explanations. Decoding Human
Development is an important turning point where the text picks up pace and the concepts get
more complex as the writing evolves and becomes poetic at times.
The author helps create awareness and provide empowerment to readers to understand and
enjoy emotional oneness with the higher meaning of living. He adds meaning to mere existence
and makes it a fruitful living. While he accepts that philosophical reasoning allows one to enter
into vast realms, the need to maintain a scientific rationale is to keep in check from absurd
