The last two?

Yes, it was the last two.

Did they actually mean something to you, as opposed to the computer-generated ones?

Dang. I was going to say the last two, but I figured you wouldn't have put the two correct answers side by side.

:(

"Every relationship is a mirror" sounds reasonable enough for someone to make a case for.

I have no idea what he means by the second one.

I put them both at the end because there's no way I would have remembered which ones are real - they're all just gibberish to me. Except you could maybe make a case for the relationship one.

So, Frelga, was there something about the last one that struck you as genuine?

They mean something in a sense that it is possible to process all words and deduce some semantic meaning.

Although a relationship as a mirror is not a bad image. The second one is gibberish.

Oh, they all have semantic meaning - they all go, "subject, predicate, object". I just think they're equally gibberish :D

They make sense like a political speech makes sense. it appears to be meaningful until you try to parse what has actually been said.

I would've guessed "Each of us transcends an expression of life". That one could kinda make sense. But as I always say, existence comprehends progressive expansion of possibilities

Oh, give the man some credit. It takes a truly brilliant mind to come up with incisive advice such as this:

There's a new site inspired by Wisdom of Chopra:

New Age Bullshit Generator

It actually generates an entire well-designed page of the stuff. And it's pretty convincing.

(convincing, that is, in that it passes my inner Turing Test. Not that it convinces me to become a New Age-er.

Nice. But I'm sure a lot of it is naked emperor stuff rather than genuine gullibility. Right?

Too many of them are in on the joke if you keep reading, even though the first few can be read as more gobbledygook crossed with internet commentator attitude.

"Master, what is the difference between a humanistic, monastic system of belief in which wisdom is sought by means of an apparently nonsensical system of questions and answers, and a lot of mystic gibberish made up on the spur of the moment?"
Wen considered this for some time, and at last said: "A fish!"
And Clodpool went away, satisfied.

I visited today, just for fun. Some of the wisdom I received:

Quote:
"Nature nurtures humble self-knowledge"


Quote:
"Self power produces precious photons"

as opposed to those cheap knock-off photons you can get at your local Wal-Mart

Quote:
"Kittens are sterile"

:suspicious:

Quote:
"The key to joy is the womb of the progressive expansion of boundaries"


Quote:
"The human nervous system transforms subjective reality"

Subjective reality - is that a self-contradiction?

Depends on which philosopher you're talking to.
