Take the Deepak Challenge
« on: June 18, 2012, 01:56:18 AM »
Some brilliant person has created the Random Deepak Chopra Quote Generator:

http://www.wisdomofchopra.com/

I've compiled a list of 10 quotes. Five are real Chopra quotes (from his Twitter feed), five are computer-generated.  Can you identify which is which?

1. Existence regulates great possibilities.
2. Everything is the ground of self-righteous reality.
3. Nature is the path to unique knowledge.
4. The soul is your core consciousness.
5. Infinity is beyond limitations.
6. Time is quantified eternity.
7. Imagination arises and subsides in visible joy.
8. Greatness is rooted in infinite reality.
9. The quality of the present moment is all that matters.
10. Self-righteous morality is cunning hypocrisy.

Also, wouldn't it be kinda amazing if he started using that generator and just fed the output of it directly into this Twitter?

That piece of information could be helpful in determining the correct answers, if I could be bothered. My guess: 2-6 real, without consideration of previous answers.

Now I'm worried. I'm struggling to tell the difference between the real quotes and the fake ones. And I made wisdomofchopra.com !  :'(

I've been sharing it all over. Well done, good sir, well done.

David Williams from Suncoast Skeptics has been doing the Deepak Chopra word jumble of the day on their facebook page for a while now. He gets the quotes from Chopra's facebook page. We've accussed him of just making them up from random words before. Now this wonderful site shows us that it is indeed possible to just make this shit up.

Pretty tough, but I feel somewhat confident:

The really interesting question is whether or not Chopra himself can tell the difference.
