“I see no god up here” was claimed to be a quote uttered by Yuri Gagarin while aboard Vostok 1.
While many today believe this is an actual quote, there are no records of it in the transcripts of his communications.
“I see no god up here, other than me” has been used on Reddit threads and other message boards and forums over the years, although this use was limited.
The quote also appears on the meme that depicts the cat on top of the power pole.
The first instance of the meme was uploaded to Imgur by jsbreeder1491 on August 6th, 2020.
The original cat meme was recycled as an image macro for several new memes, appearing on Reddit, Imgur and Tumblr.
“I see no god up here, other than me” was first defined on Urban Dictionary on September 26th, 2020.
