I feel that this book should be read by as many people as possible - the concepts contained therein are infinitely fascinating and point to a different way of understanding that which now seems to be un-intelligible because of the very way in which we approach it. Our current way of thinking that everything is fragmented and separate leads to great misconceptions and if only we can grasp the fact that utterly everything is connected we shall have come a long way along the road to a deeper knowledge of all that is.
In other words, we could come to see the great wholeness that is everything.
Mr Bohm's name is deservedly uttered in the same breath as the likes of Newton, Einstein et al. and I'm not surprised that his ideas have brought about a paradigm shift in scientific thinking. The subject he tackles in this book is a big one: the universe and our place in it. This is not an easy read as he deals with abstract concepts like thought, knowledge, intelligence etc., and you may find yourself reading and re-reading chapter after chapter, but persevere....this book has answers to big questions!
The book contains a great deal of essential philosophical wisdom and some thought provoking science, crucially being a strong reminder that our scientific theories are the progeny of our ideas about reality, rather than a representation of reality itself. There is so much we don't know, but it's fascinating finding this out.
However, there is also much that we (humanity) are learning. As Bohm points out, one of the key things we are starting to learn is not to look so much to fragmentation for answers, but rather to also adopt a holistic perspective, viewing the relationships between `objects' as key to understanding, rather than focusing strongly upon the perceived structure of the objects themselves.
I am familiar with a certain amount of quantum physics, having done some studying, so this helps with comprehension of the concepts discussed. I'm not sure how a complete novice would cope with the quantum theory (well, actually, I am fairly sure!), but if you have already done some reading on this subject, most of the more technical parts can be understood!
Overall, a very fine piece of work.
