Yet, in spite of this world-wi...

Yet, in spite of this world-wide system of linkages, there is, at this very moment, a general feeling that communication is breaking down everywhere, on an unparalleled scale.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

Yet it looks as if the thing w...

Yet it looks as if the thing we use to solve our problems with is the source of our problems. It's like going to the doctor and having him make you ill. In fact, in 20% of medical cases we do apparently have that going on. But in the case of thought, its far over 20%.

What is the source of all this...

What is the source of all this trouble? I'm saying that the source is basically in thought. Many people would think that such a statement is crazy, because thought is the one thing we have with which to solve our problems. That's part of our tradition.

We havent really paid much attention to thought as a process. we have engaged in thoughts, but we have only paid attention to the content, not to the process.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

Thought is creating divisions ...

Thought is creating divisions out of itself and then saying that they are there naturally.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

Thought is constantly creating...

Thought is constantly creating problems that way and then trying to solve them. But as it tries to solve them it makes it worse because it doesn't notice that it's creating them, and the more it thinks, the more problems it creates.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

Thought has been constantly ev...

Thought has been constantly evolving and we can't say when that system began.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

This kind of overall way of th...

This kind of overall way of thinking is not only a fertile source of new theoretical ideas: it is needed for the human mind to function in a generally harmonious way, which could in turn help to make possible an orderly and stable society.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

This is another major feature ...

This is another major feature of thought: Thought doesn't know it is doing something and then it struggles against it is doing. It doesn't want to know that it is doing it.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

Then there is the further ques...

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 Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

The ability to perceive or thi...

The ability to perceive or think differently is more important than the knowledge gained.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

Suppose we were able to share ...

Suppose we were able to share meanings freely without a compulsive urge to impose our view or conform to those of others and without distortion and self-deception. Would this not constitute a real revolution in culture.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

So one begins to wonder what i...

So one begins to wonder what is going to happen to the human race. Technology keeps on advancing with greater and greater power, either for good or for destruction.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

Similarly, thought is a system...

Similarly, thought is a system. That system not only includes thought and feelings, but it includes the state of the body; it includes the whole of society - as thought is passing back and forth between people in a process by which thought evolved from ancient times.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

People are no longer primarily...

People are no longer primarily in opposition, nor can they be said to be interacting, rather they are participating in this pool of common meaning which is capable of constant development and change.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

One thus sees that a new kind ...

One thus sees that a new kind of theory is needed which drops these basic commitments and at most recovers some essential features of the older theories as abstract forms derived from a deeper reality in which what prevails in unbroken wholeness.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

My suggestion is that at each ...

My suggestion is that at each state the proper order of operation 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

Individuality is only possible...

Individuality is only possible if it unfolds from wholeness.

David Joseph Bohm 26 quotes

Indeed, the attempt to live according to the notion that the fragments are really separate is, in essence, what has led to the growing series of extremely urgent crises that is confronting us today.

In relativity, movement is continuous, causally determinate and well defined, while in quantum mechanics it is discontinuous, not causally determinate and not well defined.
