Oh, Gwyneth Paltrow.

The actress, who recently compared reading mean things about herself on the Internet to being as dehumanizing an experience as war, is raising eyebrows yet again.

In her most recent Goop newsletter (no. 16!), Paltrow relays that she's just "fascinated" by the power of the human consciousness -- like the effect words can have on water, for example, or more crudely put, that water might have feelings.

I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter. I have long had Dr. Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water, how the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it. Below, Dr. Sadeghi explores further.

Are you thinking, "Hmmm, that sounds kind of wacky"? Well, you aren't alone. Masaru Emoto is a Japanese scientist whose theories have been widely criticized if not completely debunked.

With Paltrow's reputation as one of the most unrelatable celebrities, this new batch of Goop sounds right up her alley.

Keeping Paltrow's latest statement in mind, we'd like to leave you with a few words recently spoken by Mindy Kaling at Harvard Law School's Class Day:

"In Hollywood, we all think we're these wise advice givers, and most of us have no education whatsoever. Actresses can become nutritionistx, experts in baby care and environmental policy. Actors can become governors, pundits, or even high-ranking officials in religions made up a mere 60 years ago."
