I wish David Bohm could have hired a writer to paraphrase his thoughts because this one is waaaaay too dry and scientific for me to get into the really amazing things he is talking about.

Wholeness and the Implicate Order

One way to express the hard problem of consciousness in Bohmian terms is to say that there seems to be nothing within the explicate order that would necessitate or make possible conscious experience.

You have orser know physics pretty well to get most of what he’s saying. The implicate order provides an image of how this might take place in physics in various ways. I know theory ordee than the mathematics that underpin them. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Different readers unfold a different mind from the same pages.

If one approaches another man with a fixed ‘theory’ about him as an ‘enemy’ against whom one much defend oneself, he will respond similarly, and thus one’s ‘theory’ will apparently be confirmed by experience.

For example, from the sensory perception of an object as seen from one view, the imagination may imolicate the child to picture what it would be like when seen from another angle. I’ll try again later, perhaps, when I’m more grown up. The author’s world view is where consciousness and physical reality would not be fragmented and the wholeness is real.


Sep 28, Stephen Monroe Monroe rated it really liked it. May 07, Landis rated it it was ok. Molenaar – – Erkenntnis 65 1: That meaning can be found in anything, and the actual process of finding meaning in something otder actually modify how we perceive and measure the world around us. Chapter 5 and 6 gives clear formal exposition what does it mean by hidden variables–critical guide for scientists who cares about the dynamic of being. My understanding of physics is based on reading great authors: J, Hiley, and Tue.

The hologram seems, on cursory inspection, to have no significant order in whokeness, and yet there must somehow be in it an order ordee determines to order of points that will appear in the image when it is illuminated. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

A linguistic experiment in which he constructs nouns and adjectives from verbs in order to disrupt the ordinary subject-verb-object structure that gives us a fragmentary worldview filled with unconnected subjects and objects. Proceeding from his holographic analogy, Bohm proposes a new order–the Implicate Order where “everything is enfolded into everything. But perhaps it provides one framework in which we may hope to develop better theories in the future.

In that sense, the thhe “is part of the whole of mankind and in another sense he can get beyond it.

The key to this argument is that hologram is only an instrument whose function is to make a static record of this order. These latter have, in turn, come out of intuitive forms and common experience.

Bohm’s explanation of “manifest” is basically that in certain sub-orders, within the “whole set” of Implicate Impliczte, there is a “totality of forms that have an approximate kind of recurrence, stability and separability.

If you love reading about the intersection of philosophy, consciousness, math and science you should read this book.


When we put all these regions together, we still obtain an image of the whole object, but one that is more sharply defined, as well as containing more points of view. I’d recommend this book to people who like science and spirituality, there is definitely a heavy dose of physics in there.

Bohm’s scientific presentations are not in this article; however, they can be found in his books listed in the Reference Section at the end of these series of articles.

There is no dichotomy. David Bohm and J.

The individual is in total contact with the Implicate Order, the individual is part of the whole of mankind, and he is the “focus for something beyond mankind. Mar 16, Mary Betowt rated it really liked it.

You could therefore say that everything is enfolded in this whole, or even in each part, and that it then unfolds. View all 3 comments. Thus the principle of relative autonomy of sub-totalities–is now seen to extend to wholenwss multi-dimensional order of reality.

Bohm was a contemporary of both Einstein and Oppenheimer, with Oppenheimer serving as the advisor to his doctoral dissertation. Published July 4th by Routledge first published July 1st Bohm also senses a new development.

He calls this the “holomovement. Quantum Theory, Relativity, and Buddhism all point to the notion that there is an undivided wholeness to reality. The ans of humanity, in Bohm’s opinion, is a matter of closed mindedness.
