David Bohm Society: Implicate Order

As a human whooleness takes part in the process of this totality, he is fundamentally changed in the very activity in which his aim is to change that reality which is the content of his consciousness.

Holonomy, through a wide range of aspects, can be considered a “movement in which new wholes are emerging. Because of the low level of our ego development manifested by our grandiosity, our emotional fears and pressures, our ignorant worldviews, and our gross extraversionthis insight is more than often deflected by a closed mind. I’ll try again later, perhaps, when I’m more grown up.

Basically, two subatomic particles that have once interacted can instantaneously “respond to each other’s motions thousands of years later when they are light-years apart. When light shines from behind the image, it unfolds to give the recognizable picture.

David Joseph Bohm December 20, — October 27, was an American scientist who has been described as one of the most significant theoretical physicists of the 20th century and who contributed innovative whkleness unorthodox ideas to quantum theory, neuropsychology and the philosophy of mind. From such results you can compute the probability of another observation, without any notion of how they are connected, except statistically.


What of Human Destiny, how does Bohm consider this? That meaning can be found tthe anything, and the actual process of finding meaning in something can actually modify how we perceive and measure the world around us. I’d recommend this book to people who wholeenss science and spirituality, there is definitely a heavy dose of physics in there. Under certain circumstances, it may display wavelike aspects; and in other circumstances, it may have the characteristics of particles. The development of new orders as shown through the history of physics –Part B: Right off Bohm refers to the particle, the most essential building- block of matter.

Wholeness and the Implicate Order

The basis of quantum theory can be summarized in three propositions: Every sentence says that he knows exactly what I want, and what I’m not confident about being able to grasp. View all 5 comments. Warm recommendation for everyone!

Thus the principle of relative autonomy of sub-totalities–is now seen to extend to the multi-dimensional order of reality. View all 3 comments. Oct 20, Rob rated it it was amazing Shelves: Indeed, in the s and s he made contact with both J. In both science and philosophy, Bohm’s main concern was with oredr the nature of reality in general and of consciousness in particular.


These fields obey quantum-mechanical laws, implying the properties of discontinuity and non-locality. Jun 15, Brian rated it really liked it. Rather, all these are projections of a single totality.

Thus it is not surprising, from the Bohmian point of view, that the hard problem is so acute for these subjects. He believes that individuals participate in the whole and consequently give it meaning. It is this collective consciousness of mankind that is truly significant for Bohm. I’m always fascinated when fields of knowledge seem to come to the same conclusion. Ordinarily we aim for a literal picture of the world, but in fact we create a world according to our mode of participation, and we create ourselves accordingly.

These added concepts are invisible, and thus modify the data to lead to confusing questions about the physical snd of reality. So I say that this movement is the basic movement suggested by quantum theory.

Such movement of light is everywhere in the universe and thus enfolds spacetime in each region.
