a) "Quantum physics nurtures visible joy"

b) "Everything regulates your own opportunities"

c) "The light of awareness brings the universe into manifestation"

d) "Your conciousness explains unbridled life"

e) "Consciousness conceives governs constructs and becomes the physical universe."

f) "Your movement gives rise to quantum sensations."


The answers: (c) and (e). Congratulations katja z!

I thought (e) would be a give away, because it's so poorly written compared to the ones from the quote generator.

Shouldn't there be some commas in e? I went with c and f.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

Actually the quote generator has some problems too, although they're limited to crap spelling.

No, to make it grammatical you'd have to insert another word or use a different verbal form. Either:

"Consciousness conceives and governs constructs and becomes the physical universe."

Or:

"Consciousness conceives governing constructs and becomes the physical universe."

I wonder which he meant. :sherlock:

Deepak and "meant"? I think there is a "parallax gap" there.

I think I might start posting these to facebook, without mentioning their source, just to mess with my friends and family.

"Infinity is the path to infinite oppurtunities"
"I would rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are,
Because a could-be is a maybe that is reaching for a star.
I would rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far,
For a might-have-been has never been, but a has was once an are".

I think it's meant to go "Consciousness conceives, governs, constructs and becomes the physical universe."

If those commas had been there I would have guessed that one.

Ahh I see. :thumbup: I kept reading "constructs" as a noun for some reason.

"Consciousness conceives governs constructs and becomes the physical universe."


If this was written thus: "Consciousness conceives, governs, constructs and becomes the physical universe." It makes as much sense as anything else Deepity says, and is pretty much grammatically correct, no?

ETA. Ah, I see John and Katja got there too, sorry.

Psst ... it's all part of my cunning plan to become a bestselling author of self-help books packed with genuine wisdom and profound insight into cosmic consciousness. I think there will be quantum angels in there somewhere as well. :nod:
