More "Secret" Retardedness
I've been told that the video link on my last bitch session on The Secret isn't working anymore so I wanted to link to a new one. This clip is about nine minutes long and it's Bob Proctor talking quite long-windedly about "vibrations" and "levels of energy". Obviously he's not a physics major.
One thing I wanted to point out about this horseshit is something I thought about ten years ago when I took that "self mastery" course from the weirdy Australian fella (just to be clear, I have nothing but love for Australia, but this particular guy was an idiot). Proctor and the others in The Secret are big on attracting what you want and say that you can, "change your vibrational energy" to be in sync with whatever it is you desire, then the Universe will provide it or put it in line with you.
Ok, so let's say you want something really rare. Let's say that John F. Kennedy had a special pocket watch and you'd like to own it because you are a collector. Now that you know The Secret, you can put the Universe to work to put you in line to get it. Great; the only problem is that there's another collector out there too, and she knows The Secret. Well dammit. Which person's vibrational energy will reign supreme? Who will win out in the cosmic power battle over JFK's pocket watch? Tune in next week....
See, wouldn't it eventually descend to the point where people would be using their "Secret Powers" to take things away from others. Imagine:
I really like Ralph's wife, she's beautiful - but that darn Ralph is always there. I shall use The Secret to get the Universe to bring her vibration and my vibration into the same pattern and then we shall be together! Vibrating! Bwaahahahahahahaha!!
Sorry, couldn't resist the evil laugh at the end.
If you start out by accepting the initial premise of The Secret, then you have to end up at a place where people are using their "Secret Powers" to take things from others or get into Jedi Mind wars with other "Secret Masters". It's just juvenile silliness at best.
If Bob Proctor is so good at getting "the Universe" to get him money, why does he even need "multiple income streams"? That sounds like a bit of work. Why not just get boxes of money delivered to your door, Bob. You know, the kid in the original video got a bike dropped off on his doorstep just by thinking about it - I assume you're better at this than some untrained kid, so you should be able to at least do what a he did. Douchebag.
