The Cosmic Plenum: Bohm’s Gnosis: The Implicate Order

This article discusses the vision David Bohm intuited from his insight (gnosis) into the quantum world. This vision discerns the characteristics of an evolving cosmos in process; and, also, it ponders upon the implications for humanity. Bohm’s scientific presentations are not in this article; however, they can be found in his books listed in the Reference Section at the end of these series of articles.


David Bohm, an American, was one of the leading quantum physicists of our age. He died recently. Following a venerable career at the University of California (Berkeley) and at Princeton’s Institute of Advanced Studies, he moved to become Professor of Theoretical Physics at Birkbeck College of the University of London.

Krishnamurti, a contemporary teacher, is questionable.

I shall include in my discussion references to a few well-known contemporary scientists, e.g., David Bohm, Rupert Sheldrake and Stephen Hawking.
