I believe Mr. Norman is making a sarcastic remark. Pseudoscientific
buzz-phrases such as ``Universal Energy Field'' are hallmarks of 
``New Age'' technobabble; the arch phrase about us knowing it is
``concentrated by pyramids and crystals'' followed by the the 
paranthetical remark that he ``just couldn't help [himself]'' 
is almost a dead giveaway that he was being tongue-in-cheek 
about the wacko fringe, but forgot to insert the Federally required
``WARNING: THE ABOVE IS SATIRE'' line to fend off the lawyers from the 
National Association for the Advancement of Humor-Challenged Persons...
