Deepak's only claim to fame is the shared pronunciation of his name with "Oprah." Still he has managed to leverage this into worldwide fame, lucrative book deals, and a free subscription to Home and Garden, becoming a modern-day "profit," in his own words.
Chopra claims that reality is simply an illusion, which is either a powerfully deep take on the fabric of the cosmos, or a hastily slapped-together excuse to explain the loud, red sneakers he wore to his Colbert Report interview.
His "did I just blow your mind," pot-brownie-breakfast philosophies do have some advantages, however: if the universe contains infinite possibilities, as Chopra has stated, it means we can win in Iraq — and, in fact, that we may have already won.
An important facet of Chopra's philosophies is moisturizing and exfoliating. It can only be presumed that the dead cells from Chopra's face go on in their afterlife to enjoy the illusion of being interviewed on national television by Stephen Colbert's dandruff.
Chopra has stated his most recent book is a must-read for anyone who is going to die, and has given three copies to his mother-in-law.
