Initially, I thought it was all hogwash. However, I recently bought a book, "The Science Behind the Secret", which I haven't read yet. However, it came highly recommended by an intelligent friend of mine. The more I hear about "The Secret," the more it starts to mirror Eastern philosophy; the Chi or whatever that connects us all to a single higher intelligence. It goes hand-in-hand with physics as this would be a way of altering your own history since, theoretically, every possible history has happened and will happen. I imagine that, if the secret is legitimate, it would be a way of controlling which history you end up in when faced with a decision which provides a fork in the "stream" of time, as it were.
