Tribute to one of the greatest scientists of the 20th Century
Written by: George Satsias
Along with Albert Einstein, theoretical physicist David Bohm (of whom Einstein spoke of as being his successor) made significant contributions to quantum theory, but his passion would lie foremost in discovering the nature of reality; the hard question of consciousness.
Bohm eloquently illustrates realities that have eluded humankind for centuries. Truths that have caused divisions amongst humans that are leading us to the destruction of ourselves as well as what we perceive to be the other.
Without a hint of arrogance, Bohm would share insights with an unprecedented modesty that if one were to characterise him without bias or prejudice, one might comprehend the beautiful mind, (a shared commonality amongst all sentient beings).
He demonstrated that the perceived separation between ourselves and the external world is nothing more than a persistent deception brought about by thought. His theories came close to describing the indefinable mystery of consciousness, a feat unmatched by his predecessors.
