hate misattributed quotes ’cause dead people can’t rise up and say, I NEVER SAID THAT! or HEY! THOSE WERE MY WORDS – YOU STOLE MY WORDS, JACKASS!”

It’s metaphorical. There are unwritten words implied:
“The Entire Universe [of your Understanding of the Universe] is in your mind and nowhere else.”

It’s not that hard. Deepak steals quotes and writes in metaphorical form, not literal form.

So did my pal Carl Sagan. How disappointed was I when I tracked down “We are all made of stardust” and found out it WASN’T Sagan at all. He happily stole quotes too and attributed them to himself. Tyson, Krauss and Bill Nye also love stealing Sagan quotes… which usually turned out not to be Sagan quotes either, and allowing themselves to be liberally quoted as the sources.

Oh well. He inspired me, so that was good. End justifies the means I guess. Still hate misattributed quotes ’cause dead people can’t rise up and say, I NEVER SAID THAT! or HEY! THOSE WERE MY WORDS – YOU STOLE MY WORDS, JACKASS!”
