* The Weaver, of ''PerdidoStreetStation'' has an... [[BlueAndOrangeMorality unusual outlook on life]], vaguely connected to an aesthetic opinion. It spouts a steady stream of not-quite-nonsense to anyone in earshot, but no one is any closer to understanding its motives at the end of the book than they are at the beginning. It's basically a non-hostile EldritchAbomination, so that shouldn't be too surprising.

* Brand's speech in ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'' about love being ''"an artifact about a higher dimension we can not percieve"'' and that ''"transcends the dimensions of time and space"'' is treated as this by the other characters. And many viewers. It makes sense in context of the later parts of movie and the [[UsefulNote/{{Existentialism}} existentialist themes]] that are included in almost all of [[ViewersAreGeniuses Nolan's movies]], but at that moment it seems completely ridiculous.

* ''AHDotComTheSeries'' has some recurring characters based on forum trolls whose InsaneTrollLogic was complicated enough to reach this trope. For example, the idea that we should all return to the anarcho-capitalist state of the ancient Irish because public trees are on private land, or that all nuclear technology is a Jewish tribalist hoax and nuclear power plants are actually driven by people's uncles peeling potatoes inside them.

* Dr. Hamid Parsani, protagonist of Reza Negarestani's ''{{Cyclonopedia}}'', a text described on the back cover as "At once a horror fiction, a work of speculative theology, a political samizdat and a philosophic grimoire," is perhaps one of our greatest postmodern wordsaladists. For example: "The nemat-space of the ()hole complex reduces the monopolistic holiness of the Creation, the functionality of the ground's economy (which also forms a taxis-trellis pincer to support the Whole), and the hegemony of the Whole. Nemat-space introduces wholeness to Zero without wiping it out. This is the polytics first practiced and exquisitely elaborated by the Persian cult of Kaxuzi..." etc. etc. for 250 pages.

* {{REM}}'s "Life and How to Live it" is doubly this. Not only is the advice rather nonsensical, but it was inspired by a resident of Athens who built two apartments in his house (with him changing apartments as his moods changed) and self-published a rather incoherent and bigoted book of advice.

* The SCPFoundation has a parody of this with [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-7560-j SCP-7560-J]], a rant by a guy who is basically a cross between Francis Dec and Gene Ray.

* ''Film/ApocalypseNow'': the unnamed reporter played by Dennis Hopper is prone to spirited diatribes of gibberish philosophy, caught up in the magnetism of Kurtz's insanity. A lot of this was improvised by the heavily drugged Hopper.
