It needed to be said, and you said it.

I used to have a close friend who knew most of the people behind The Secret. He said that they were all suing each other--which he considered the highest pinnacle of hypocrisy.

If accurate, that might also explain why the lady behind the project reportedly retired to live a cloistered existence, refusing to do further work in this area.

Speaking personally about your intriguing theory of bidirectional time and trauma speaking to us across it, decades ago I had deep fears (as, apparently, did Philip K. Dick) of living in a fascist society. I now see those fears coming unfortunately close to fruition.
