It may involve new age references to "energy," which is a common way of deceiving crowds into following something that looks serious. The wording is generally vague, not well defined and cannot be used to make hypothesis... it discards them from being investigated, but it enables users to reference some facts as proving their points. The terms being so vague, it is easy to tell people that almost anything proves their point.
