New-Age Bullshit Generator

"Through reiki, our bodies are baptized in chi. Only a prophet of the solar system may engender this spark of intuition. Where there is selfishness, inspiration cannot thrive.
Although you may not realize it, you are heroic. Child, look within and empower yourself. If you have never experienced this flow of unfathomable proportions, it can be difficult to self-actualize."

The problem is knowing whether it's been generated by a machine or a quack!

For example, an Indian homeopath came up with the following on Twitter yesterday:
Homeopathy can provide first ever evidence of a Closed Timelike Curve.
#RCTs are shamefully defective for testing homeopathy.

#RCTs test homeopathy against parameters which themselves are not so anymore after homeo action. Ppl at the helm of affairs r ignorant.

#Homeopathic remedy profiles spanning a #HilbertSpace is the most beautiful verification of homeopathy being Scientific.

And confirmation of #Susskind's victory about the universality of conservation of information- a highly deserving one.

#homeopathy is effective against an eigenstate (totality of symptoms represented by a quorum). Checking it on any other basis is stupidity.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
