After reading Orwell's Politics and the English Language, I was pondering what can arise from sloppy language. I came across Tips for Better Thinking: Watch Out for Vague Gobbledygook on McGill University's Office for Science and Society website. In it, I found a reference to an interesting site called WisdomOfChopra.com. It is a sardonic take on Chopra's vague New Age verbiage, writings, and thinking. The site takes words from Chopra's real X stream and randomly assembles them into "vague communications that smell of profundity" mimicking Chopra's proclamations.

With a smile, I captured the quote it presented, with the thought: it's the perfect meme generator for New Agers.

This site recalls the Sokal Affair, where real physicist Alan Sokal, leveraging the current New Age's fixation on quantum physics, published "Transgressing the Boundaries: Towards a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity" in a series of discussions that sociologists, historians, and literary critics were having on the validity of science as a vehicle of knowledge. The article was purposeful nonsense Sokal had written, "proposing that quantum gravity is a social and linguistic construct."
