It's almost scary how accurate this thing is. It's mostly just hilarious, though. ;D
Maybe new-agers are machines in disguise? :o

A few choice quotes:
Quote
Consciousness consists of electromagnetic resonance of quantum energy. “Quantum” means a blossoming of the archetypal. Nothing is impossible. Insight is a constant.
We are at a crossroads of wisdom and selfishness."

Quote
We exist as bio-feedback.
To wander the quest is to become one with it. Synchronicity requires exploration.
Have you found your circuit?

We heal, we vibrate, we are reborn. Nature is the healing of beauty, and of us. Consciousness consists of bio-feedback of quantum energy. “Quantum” means a redefining of the ethereal.

Quote
This life is nothing short of an ennobling vector of amazing rejuvenation.
You and I are seekers of the cosmos. We exist as meridians.
My names are many, yet I am One.
-Orion, son of Fire and Light, Sol Invictus.

Religions need books because they don't have gods.

That is pure gold! It really does not matter what question is asked, trotting out a paragraph from this will answer it (or at least appear to answer it...)
Nobody says “There are many things that we thought were natural processes, but now know that a god did them.”

Excellent find. Methinks I'll become a guru. Excuse me while I go become one with it.
What I lack in sophistication I make up for with other shortcomings.

If you liked that, then you'll love this:
  • Ever wanted to fill your posts with long, rambling, and obtuse sentences?
  • Do you feel that your posts are not pretentious enough?
  • Are others regularly picking holes in your arguments?
  • Do you often lose arguments to people who know what the fuck they are talking about?
  • Would you like to master the technique of quoting people you probably don't agree with, perhaps speaking outside their area of expertise, as a way to change the subject when in a bind?
  • Have others suggested more bafflegab?
  • Looking to spend some of that tax refund?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, then the Postmodernism Generator is for you![1] Here you can generate whole papers, replete with references, faster than you can say Philosophical Wankerism.

In the works of Joyce, a predominant concept is the concept of neodeconstructivist art. Therefore, the premise of dialectic subtextual theory states that truth may be used to reinforce capitalism. Sargeant[1] implies that the works of Joyce are modernistic.

"Society is part of the absurdity of language," says Lacan; however, according to Hanfkopf[2] , it is not so much society that is part of the absurdity of language, but rather the rubicon, and hence the economy, of society. However, if the neoconceptual paradigm of expression holds, we have to choose between Foucaultist power relations and the neoconceptual paradigm of expression. A number of desublimations concerning a dialectic totality exist...

Several times I've thought about pasting something from there in response to PhilosoB or Dennis's.... "stuff", but I've been good. So far.

For more in this vein, do check out the [wiki]Sokal_affair[/wiki]. It's some excellent trolling and expertly takes the piss out of those who take pride in constructing word salad.

Edit: Oh, seeing as you asked, I posted a link to the Wisdom of Chopra - http://www.wisdomofchopra.com/ - here, and I think in some other places - but it's so worth posting this kind of thing over and over again.
 1. The Postmodernism Generator is actually here - http://dh.elsewhere.org/pomo/ - but it's messed up right now. The link above works just as well though.
