David Bohm

In existographies, David Bohm (1917-1992) (CR:3) was an American physicist, noted for []

In 2002, William Plank, an American philosopher, in his The Quantum Nietzsche: the Will to Power and the Nature of Dissipative Systems, puts a modern-day reinterpretation of Nietzsche’s 1883 theory of “will to power” in terms of the quantum theory, particularly the work of physicists Irish-born American John Bell and Bohm, and thermodynamics, specifically using the Prigoginean dissipative structure logic.

The following are quotes on Bohm:

“As biology and physics grow ever closer to a unification, we come to a realization of the underlying significance of Bohm's ‘implicate order’ (Bohm, 1980), whereby matter in biological systems exists in a state which is uniquely ‘enfolded’ into the complete physical fabric of the universe. By rights, we should designate that as a distinct state of matter. Let us call it, aptly and simply, bios. Then, following Bohm, we might say that matter is ‘biotic’ (or ‘alive’) when it exists in a self-propagating, internally-negentropic region of space-time ‘curved’ by global (boundary) free-energy dissipation.”
— H.A. Smith (1991), “Cytosociology: a Field-Theoretical View of Cell Metabolism” [2]

“A few last points, regarding physical evidence the human wave function, please see ch. 8 (Human Chemistry), where I derive the Schrodinger equation, in the context of human molecular orbital theory. The first crude types of human wave functions (turning tendencies) were drawn by Ernst Mach in 1885. There is a big difference, of course, between a wave function of an electron and a molecule, but both expressions are, however, derived starting with the Lagrangian. Regarding coherence and decoherence, this is a marginal topic in that very little has been said or understood on how this applies to human activity. The few examples of application include the questionable postulates of Rupert Sheldrake (e.g. pg. 273 of Sense of Being Stared At) or David Bohm, etc., e.g. twins who remain aware of each other when a tragic injury occurs. Most of these topics, however, are far removed from human thermodynamics, let alone entropy.”
