Bohm also believes that the individual will eventually be fulfilled upon the completion of cosmic noogenesis. For example, there is wboleness order of numbers which is in correspondence to that of points on a line, the order of successive positions in the motion of objects, various kinds of intensive order such a pressure, temperature, colour, etc.

Apr 01, Jens impplicate it really liked iplicate Shelves: Be the first to ask a question about Wholeness and the Implicate Order. 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. What is seen is that there is a certain “relationship between the images appearing on the two screens.

Wholeness and the Implicate Order

This is a key piece of the “quantum rendering” puzzle. Rosen – – Man-Environment Systems 12 1: 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.

Bohm also refers to a law in the holomovement. David Bohm – – Foundations of Physics 3 2: 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.


Bohm attempts to explore these ideas, and while he recognizes that he cannot possibly conceive the wholeness, the effort that he makes he really quite brilliant. The picture that the particles are building blocks of the universe does not fit with particles that can also act as waves and moves in a discontinuous fashion.

David Bohm’s ‘Wholeness and the Implicate Order’: The key point is that the Bohmian scheme proposes that there is more to the world than the explicate order of matter, namely the implicate order and what may be beyond that. Bkhm energy such as light or heat does not always behave like a continuous wave–rather it is grainy, because energy can be transferred only in quantum packages.

They exist with a stability of basic pattern of order and measure whose characteristics could be investigated without having to know the full set of laws governing the holomovement. In both science and philosophy, Bohm’s main concern David Bohm was one of the foremost scientific thinkers and philosophers of our time. He touches on the illusion of time, free will, quantum mechanics, the particle-wave duality and impliccate.

Ib Ravn – – Dissertation, University of Pennsylvania. In that sense, the individual “is part of the whole of mankind and in another sense he can get beyond it. 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.

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.

At the very depths of aholeness ground of all existence Bohm believes that there exists a special energy. I wasn’t aware that we were up to such childish games as ‘right’ and ‘wrong!

Xiv When this mode implicae thought [fragmentation] is applied to man’s notion of himself and the whole world in which he lives i. In the depths of the Implicate Order, there is a “consciousness, deep down–of the whole of mankind. Bohn has the humility to admit this, which is wonderful and refreshing. These latter have, in turn, come out of intuitive forms and common experience.

He pushes the edges of language, using it as a vessel to communicate his main message: In a hologram xnd entire object is contained in each region of the hologram, enfolded as a pattern of waves, which can then be unfolded by shining light through it. And yes, there is some math in it, but it’s really not that much outside of one appendix, and most of it is algebra. How then can we proceed? This view is understandable, it’s intuitive, but much like thinking the Earth is flat the intuitive, first level of observation conclusionit’s wrong.

This is some heavy material, partly outside of my grasp of understanding. Bohmian Interpretation in Philosophy of Physical Science categorize this wholenexs.

As a work of science, it’s incomplete, speaks only in general terms, and should be judged by peer review science.
