I wasn’t aware that we were up to such childish games as ‘right’ and ‘wrong! Most quantum physicists suggest that the statistical laws of quantum physics are incompatible with the operation of deeper sub-quantum level individual laws because of the fluctuations of individual quantum domain.

It enfolds information into the many levels of consciousness, into all of life. This could be an interesting chapter for readers interested in the philosophy of physics and consciousness. Newtonian physics is still used, even though relativity and quantum are much better in certain situations.

You may think of nets of consciousness that are finer and finer, or we may think of capturing finer and finer aspects of the implicate order.

The way we think and so on is among those factors. Everything that is and will be in this cosmos is enfolded within the Implicate Order. Think of the becoming, not the miplicate. Creation-dissolution-creation all coexist in that live oak tree. Wholeness in Bhom and the philosophy of David Bohm David Bohm is one of the deep thinkers among quantum physicists who went beyond the traditional interpretation of physical reality.

These moments may include a certain portion of space and time and it is the unfolding of these moments that we witness. According to Bohm, insight is pure perception. This vision discerns the characteristics of an evolving cosmos in process; and, also, it ponders upon the implications for humanity. I couldn’t help thinking that large sections could have been more clearly written and more examples and allegory used particularly in the first half.

Wholeness and the Implicate Order

Bohmian Interpretation in Philosophy of Physical Science categorize this paper. You have to know physics pretty well to get most of what he’s saying. David Bohm – – International Philosophical Quarterly 22 4: Bohm’s explanation of “manifest” is basically that in certain sub-orders, within the “whole set” of Implicate Order, there is a “totality of forms that have an approximate kind of recurrence, stability and separability.


Bohm does not an that there is disorder at the level of the implcate universality, rather it is at the level of humanity–mainly because of ignorance.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. That meaning can be found in anything, and the actual process of finding meaning in something can actually modify how we perceive and measure the world around us.

Wholeness and the Implicate Order – Wikipedia

He illustrates implicit order by hologram technology: I also appreciated Bohm’s historical account of measurement, carefully dissecting concepts such as ratio and measure, bringing some much-needed clarity to processes that are often glossed over.

I My suggestion is that at each stage the proper order of operations of the mind requires an overall grasp of what is generally known, not only in formal, logical, mathematical terms, but also intuitively, in images, feelings, poetic usage of language, etc. Although deeply influenced by Einstein, he was also, more unusually for a scientist, inspired by mysticism.

Every sentence says that he knows exactly what I want, and what Omplicate not confident about being able to grasp. The hologram seems, on cursory inspection, to have no significant order in it, and yet tbe must wholensss be in it an order that determines to order of points that will appear in the image when it is illuminated. Return to The Cosmic Plenum Home. Rather, in the prevailing philosophy in the Orient, the immeasurable that which cannot be named, described, or understood through any form of reason is regarded as the primary reality.

It is technical in many places and quite verbose due to the academic standards of its author. This interpretation of existence and physical realty is identical to that of Vedanta philosophy of Hinduism. From such results you can compute the probability of another observation, without any notion of how they are connected, except statistically. A hologram works by distorting incoming light in such ways as to make them precisely interfere at certain points in space so as to create an image.


Holonomy, through a wide range of aspects, can be considered a “movement in which new wholes are emerging.

If I could give this book negative stars, I would. His argument being, we are not surveying or taking into account the multitude of causalities and effects that are entangled with us both in physical reality and our internal physiological realities.

Sagan, Einstein, Feinberg, Bryson, Hawking he’s ok, not great. Instead, the universe is better understood as a process. He starts by arguing that the success of classical physics has made us too focused on reductionism, analyzing the components rather than having eye for the whole, while 20th century physics’ breakthroughs point the other way.

The key to this argument is that hologram is only an instrument whose function is to make a static record of this order. We run around, trying to drape things in numbers and theories, but we are not at peace. Our suggested next step is to explore how an order appropriate to wholeness can be found in our intuition and general experience.

If we think in our present way, we will create the kind of world that we have created. Only made it to page 40ish. To ask other readers questions about Wholeness and the Implicate Orderplease sign up.

Physics, Philosophy, and Theology”. Right off Bohm refers to the particle, the most essential building- block of matter. We tend to think of the world in terms of nouns, objects, particles. He shows that the equations of relativity and quantum theory can be written in non limiting ways, that is to say they are true regarding their space, but are not the absolute truth. In principle, any individual element could reveal “detailed information about every other element in the universe.
