Religions are absurd by definition.
They make confident proclamations about God, heaven, life after death, and such, even though there is zero convincing evidence that God, heaven, life after death, or other supernatural phenomena even exist.
But there's plenty of absurdity floating around in the sphere of "spiritual but not religious," which includes New Age ideas.
Deepak Chopra is a notable purveyor of this sort of crap. I've written about Chopra here, here, here, and here. The blog post linked to in the last "here" is called Deepak Chopra's inanity makes my head explode.
OK, not literally. Otherwise I couldn't be writing this post. Figuratively, for sure.
Thanks to regular commenter Jesse, I've been turned on to a Deepak Chopra quote generator that allows me, or anyone, to produce Chopra inanities on demand that sound very much like the real thing in Chopra's books.
Here's what Jesse said in an email:
Well, I'll consider doing that, Jesse.
However, I need to remember that the unexplainable fears a symbolic representation of miracles. And it's common knowledge that eternal stillness transforms the door of knowledge. In the end, though, perception quiets exponential self-knowledge.
So likely I'll use the Deepak Chopra quote generator. Just did, in fact. Three times.
It's hard to tell fake Chopra quotes from genuine ones. The one below likely is genuine, because it makes such little sense. I'll keep looking for that place inside myself, though. I really want to be able to run a mile in under four minutes to show people that us 70 year-olds can do anything.
Just need to find the nothing-is-impossible place within me.
