The Bohm interpretation of the mind-matter relationship

A physics essay written by Professor Basil J Hiley in respect to the Bohm holo-movement model of physics

I have developed an implicit/explicit theory in relationship to reality. The Bohm model of physics relates to the existence of an implicate and explicate phenomena being present within our 3D universe. Both these pairs of cosmic processes [Bohm’s and my own] are much the same except that my ideas relate to reality, i.e. beyond space-time. In my mind, brain, consciousness and matter modelling I relate all three of these phenomena to my concept of a primordial [absolute] awareness. [Also see A seven point guide to the day to day workings of reality] The Bohm hypothesis is that space-time reality is one with an implicate [curtain-like] backdrop.

I have included an article into this blog entitled “Non-commutative Geometry, the Bohm Interpretation and the Mind-Matter Relationship”. It was written by Professor Hiley. The contents scientifically relate to similar themes that I have discussed above. It is an extensive scholarly article that I feel has been primarily written for the benefit of Hiley’s peer’s. It is not easy to read. The online source of the essay can be found here.

I have copied and pasted certain extracts from Hiley’s essay and they appear below. I will not attempt to explain each quote. My reason for posting these quotes today is that I feel that you need to know that such informed work exists in the community relating to the interconnecting linkages between mind, brain, consciousness and matter processes.

As a Noetic Scientist I do not fully understand the scientific meaning of the contents of the essay. However, I believe that Hiley is saying something is seriously wrong with contemporary science modelling as it attempts to understand the fundamental relationship between minds, brains, consciousnesses and matter. Hiley seems to be offering a solution to this scientific dilemma and his solution is based upon the ideas of the late physicist David Bohm. I am developing ideas for a new blog relating to this topic.
