This #book is a collection of essays…representing the development of my thinking over the past twenty years. ~David Bohm, Wholeness and the Implicate Order
…my scientific & philosophical work, 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 & unfoldment. ~#DavidBohm
Then there is the further question of what is the relationship of thinking to reality. As careful attention shows, thought itself is in an actual process of movement. ~David Bohm
…in reflecting on and pondering the nature of movement…one comes inevitably to the question of #wholeness… ~David Bohm
How are we to think coherently of a single, unbroken, flowing actuality of existence as a whole, containing both thought…and external reality as we experience it? ~#DavidBohm
…this brings us to consider our overall world view, which includes our general notions concerning the nature of reality, along with those concerning the total order of the universe… ~David Bohm, Wholeness and the Implicate Order
…the widespread…distinctions between people…which are now preventing mankind from working together for the common good, and…even for survival, have one of the key factors of their origin in a kind of thought that treats things as inherently divided, disconnected… ~David Bohm
What I am proposing here is that man’s general way of thinking of the totality, i.e. his general world view, is crucial for overall order of the human mind itself. ~David Bohm, Wholeness and the Implicate Order
My suggestion is that a proper world view…is generally one of the basic factors that is essential for harmony in the individual and in society as a whole. ~#DavidBohm
…both in relativity theory and quantum theory, notions implying the undivided #wholeness of the universe…provide a much more orderly way of considering the general nature of reality. ~David Bohm, Wholeness and the Implicate Order
…the subject-verb-object structure of modern languages … divides the totality of existence into separate entities, which are considered to be essentially fixed and static… ~David Bohm #language
…our general world view is itself an overall movement of thought, which has to be viable in the sense that the totality of activities that flow out of it are generally in harmony… ~David Bohm #worldview
…my attitude has, from the beginning, been that our notions concerning cosmology and the general nature of reality are in a continuous process of development… ~#DavidBohm
…it is hoped that…these essays may help to convey to the reader how the subject itself has actually unfolded, so that the form of the #book is, as it were, an example of what may be meant by the content. ~David Bohm, Wholeness and the Implicate Order
