Hello. Welcome to the Transcendental Language Generator. This program generates more than 2 TRILLION unique combinations of mystical and transcendental language, of approximately 100 characters each. These can be used by mystics and fantasticos of all stripes to generate unique content. Simply enter the name and sex of any particular deity, guru, spiritual principle or person and press submit. The approximate 100 character chunk size is perfect for sending mystical tweets, and the more than 2 trillion unique combinations mean that you can send 100 tweets a day, 365 days a year, for at least 54 million years without ever getting a repeat!! Aspiring mystical authors will be happy to know that the number of unique combinations (which I am actually understating significantly) is enough to author at least 200 million books of 80,000 words each!

Q: But how does transcendental language work?
AD: Since a large percentage of the words used in “transcendental” language are vague and open to wide interpretation (e.g., “transcendental”, “spiritual”) wholly undefined (e.g., “cosmic consciousness”, “God”) or misused (e.g., “quantum”, “atomic”), transcendental language exploits a psychological principle called “transderivational search.”
The general idea is that vague, open-ended and undefined language will invoke a broader and deeper derivational search process in the listener, which tends to make a person look “inward” in order to make sense of the language, and also seems to have a somewhat “trancey” effect. It is for this reason that such language is frequently used in Ericksonian hypnosis, as a way of generating confusion or distraction during inductions. Also, since the meaning of such language isn’t rooted to anything material or concrete, people are free to try and “make sense of” it in terms of their own personal conceptual framework or belief system. This greatly broadens its appeal and “meaningfulness,” giving it a pleasant and smooth quality that doesn’t require much critical thinking and “goes down easy”; many people report that such language “resonates” and feels very meaningful in the moment, but afterwards aren’t able to clearly describe what was said or what it meant.
