To be perfectly blunt, whatever Deepak has to say about most things is complete and utter bs. I recall watching a debate between him and Sam Harris and Deepak wouldn't shut up long enough for anybody else to make their arguments, not to mention all the logical fallacies, the twisting of quantum physics, and everything else that was wrong with what he was saying.
He's the last person you want representing you. When I considered that most within the mainstream new age circles shared a lot in common with him I decided it wasn't for me.
As for the topic at hand, it's certain they rot in the ground. Everything else is negotiable.
