Projects

We have updated our projects page and we have created a separate page for the Together First Project.

We would also like to list the projects of others who are exploring what thought is doing to the world.  Do contact us if you are aware of any projects we have over looked.

Those of us who are interested in the proposals of Bohm and related others must carry out these projects and experiments.  No one else is going to do it.  This is truly a grassroots movement so do not underestimate the difference you could make as a single person if you are serious enough about these things.

 

Wave/Particle Duality: Interesting Visualization with Parallels to Bohm’s Work

Your question is excellent. We call a walker the ensemble of the droplet and its associated wave. Since the work you refer to we have shown that the wave field contains a memory of the past trajectory that is at the origin of the quantum like effects we observe. You will find attached a recent work dealing with this effect. In the double slit experiment, while the droplet passes through one slit the associated wave passes through both so that one coud say that the walker passes through both. Our system is similar to a pilot wave system and this is what we are working on recently. These models are usually called de Broglie – Bohm models, a term that is very misleading because the two approaches are different from one another. Bohm gets a dynamical equation from Shrödinger equation so that it concerns the dynamics of a maximum of probability. What de Broglie had in mind was a the dynamics of an individual particle associated with a wave. Our system appears to be closer to de Broglie. — Yves Couder

David Bohm on Proprioception of Thought

“We could say that practically all the problems of the human race are due to the fact that thought is not proprioceptive.” — David Bohm

Bohm’s notion of proprioception of thought is one of his most profound and important contributions.  We have put together a page with various quotes and talks of his on this subject: David Bohm on Proprioception of Thought

“So, the idea of thought-proprioception is not so strange as it may sound at first. Thoughts and felts are movements and therefore we suppose that it must be possible to have proprioception of them. Since the body has the ability to sense it’s own movements, which is proprioception in a physical sense, we should also be able to extent this ability in the psychological realm. It is only a natural extension of body-proprioception. In fact, it’s very strange that we haven’t developed it very much, not enough anyway.” — David Bohm
