 Yep ... just read something by Richard Dawkins (the evolutionary biologist)
 that was viscously funny about the many new age books that mangle eastern
 mysticism with modern physics (you know the type ... "Quantum" healing,
 etc., etc.) ... he said, in essence, that the underlying formula was
 something like this ... "Hhhmmm, quantum mechanics are mysterious and hard
 to understand, eastern mystics have always been mysterious and hard to
 understand, therefore quantum physics must be related to eastern mysticism
 ...". Tee Hee, -JRC

My personal favorite was a short piece in the Chicago Tribune years ago when
some new age type person was enthusing over her crystals and the article
ended like this:

" 'This is proven in the theories of Einstein.'

'Einstein, spinning in his grave, was unavailable for comment.' "
