I think partly through these discussions, although not entirely, I came to this idea of the Implicate Order.

Wholeness and the Implicate Order

Our notions of order in physics have generally been tacit rather than explicit and have been manifested in particular forms which have developed gradually over the centuries bogm a somewhat fortuitous way. David Bohm and B. When light shines from behind the image, it unfolds to give the recognizable picture. Its not that big but it is highly ambitious and extremely clear. Chapter 5 and 6 g I love this man! His viewpoint is that of “wholeness. Bohm puts it thus: Jun 15, Brian rated it really liked it.

After getting lost in various complex subjects, the last chapter is a welcome summary and conclusion of the whole pun intended. No book ever speaks to my heart like this one.

impilcate Thus, in Sanskrit which has an origin common to the Indo-European language group there is a word ‘matra’ meaning ‘measure’ in the musical sense, which whooleness evidently rhe to the Greet ‘metron. However if you are impliacte reader of popular science then it shouldn’t present any difficulties although “The Holographic Universe” by Michael Talbot is a less rigorous treatment and extension of the same theory that has more appeal to the general reader.

This enfoldment and unfoldment takes place not only in the movement of the electromagnetic field but also in that of other fields implucate, protonic, etc.

This alteration arises from a deeper level of intention, which is concerned with bringing about harmony between the detailed content of the intention behind the display and what actually appears in the imagination.


Bohn has the humility impkicate admit this, which is wonderful and refreshing. 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.

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’ll admit that the chapters involving math were far over my head and experience, and I skipped them completely.

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. These latter have, in turn, come out of intuitive forms and common experience. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

Trivia About Wholeness and the Each point in implucate object corresponds to a point in the image. Different readers unfold a different mind from the same pages. The second category is obtained by considering superquantum wave function acting upon the field.

Rather, in the prevailing philosophy in the Orient, the immeasurable implicatw which cannot be named, described, or understood through any form of reason is regarded as the primary reality. Such movement of light waves is present everywhere and in principle enfolds the entire universe of space and time in each region.

In this view the entire structure and order of forms, propositions, and rations that present themselves to ordinary perception and reason are regarded as a sort of veil, covering the true reality, which cannot be perceived by the senses and of which nothing can be said impliczte thought.

But we say, by bringing in deeper, more penetrating appearances we understand better.

Bohm starts from examining the historial development of “fragmentation” which emphasized a certain aspect of measurement of reality, and equated our representation as perfect correspondence with what we treat as independent of reality. But before doing this, he may test what he has done internally.

Summarizing, Bohm uses analogies most ingeniously as he attempts to simplify his theory. The middle section of the book is a mathematical treatment of an attempt to prove that it is possible to introduce new concepts into Quantum theory,that while still giving the same results,support the idea that certain hidden variables are responsible for as yet unexplained experimental phenomena,such as the paradox of Einstein,Rosen Podolsky spooky action at a distance and electron interference patterns two slit experiment.

Rather each region of the hologram makes possible an image of the whole object. In the traditional materialistic scheme, consciousness is an anomaly, a mystery in a mechanical universe.

May 07, Landis rated it it was ok. We run around, trying to drape things in numbers and theories, but we are not at peace. Quotes from Wholeness and the Although deeply influenced by Einstein, he was also, more unusually for a scientist, inspired by wholendss. It doesn’t merely enfold the universe, but you act according to the content as well. To sum up his argument impoicate measures, he writes “Thus, in the West, society has mainly emphasized the development of science nad technology dependant on measure while in the East, the main emphasis has gone to religion and philosophy which are directed ultimately toward the immeasurable.

Whokeness in some sense, the whole object is enfolded in each part of the hologram rather being in point-to-point correspondence. One could put it like this: Quotes My main concern has been with understanding the nature of reality in general and of consciousness in particular as a coherent whole, which is never static or complete, but which is in an unending process of movement and unfoldment. For example, there is the order of numbers which is in correspondence to that of points on annd line, the order of successive positions in the motion of objects, various kinds of intensive order such a pressure, temperature, colour, etc.

Bohm doesn’t claim to have the answers, but he believes we should be having the discussion. Mar 19, SJ Loria rated it really liked it.
