I think I reached my limit failing to understand David Bohm's Implicate Order. But it's okay, I really love surface detail, it's the basis of poetry.Well, as you may know- I'm quite fond of poetry, it is a fine craft. As my signature states, the world will need more than one note to make beautiful music. Bohm's theory is one note in a fascinating symphony of human intelligence. Furthermore, I'm a Neoist (branch of the international Post-Dogmatist Group), so I'm intellectually flexible. I may study Bohm one week and the standard model of physics next week, but I will not go around saying one theory is more valid/true, because all theories are human stories trying to explain/compress reality. If you want to investigate my on-going human story- I made three videos (search- Beyond One & Zero, youtube) that may help you understand Bohm's Implicate Order and my approach to quantum resonance, human systems, consciousness, evolution, etc. Right now, Bohm's perception is very similar to my perception of reality. If Bohm's theory is flawed, so be it, the world is full of interesting perspectives!
I may seem excited about certain subjects, but I never go out and read a book just so I can make witty comments. I like to read books that help me explore ideas that originate (so I'd like to believe) in my head. 'The best books... are those that tell you what you know already.' -George Orwell. I suppose I'd describe myself as an authentic thinker. Most people are trained to be other people (or as Oscar Wilde stated- “Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”), thus people appear to be suspicious when someone like myself has authentic ideas, authentic thinkers threaten their inauthentic thoughts. Sure, intellectual property doesn't exist and we all influence our body of knowledge, but folks can at least rearrange our body of knowledge in a new- thought provoking- way. In-fact, my struggle may revolve around creating something new. Alas, sometimes inventors discover the same thing despite being separated by sea and land... What does that tell you?
