Full interview with David Peat

The extended Interview series continues… The late F. David Peat, Theorical Physicist and Author, longtime colleague and close friend of David Bohm, talks of Bohm and his quest for a radical new order to Physics… This interview is now available and not to be missed. In the early 1970’s, David Peat took a sabbatical year with Roger Penrose, but shortly after overheard a lecture by David Bohm and was instantly hooked. He made it his business to meet with and talk to Bohm, and soon after the two men became collaborators, sharing an interest in the nature of Consciousness. Then

Full interview with Maureen Doolan

Maureen Doolan …talks of David Bohm, the shy humble man who women could not resist! Extended interview with Maureen Doolan, close friend of both David and Saral Bohm now available and not to be missed…. In 2000, Maureen Doolan co-founded the Pari Centre for New Learning with her husband, physicist, the late F. David Peat. This center upholds David Bohm’s ideas in physics, philosophy, and consciousness, which is located in the little medieval village of Pari in Tuscany, Italy. Maureen is currently Commissioning Editor at Pari Publishing. WATCH THE FILM Both Maureen Doolan and David Peat were very close friends

Full interview with Sir Roger Penrose

Extended interview with Sir Roger Penrose is now available  and should not be missed…. Dear Friends, today you have an opportunity to watch our extended interview with Nobel Laureate and Mathematical Physicist Sir Roger Penrose who featured in our film Infinite Potential WATCH THE FILM Penrose stated “If you are looking at interpretations of Quantum Mechanics, I think that the Bohm-Hiley way of looking at Quantum Mechanics has the most satisfactory Ontology, so that you have a picture of what constitutes reality without changing Quantum Mechanics…” WATCH THE FILM Roger Penrose, Basil Hiley and David Bohm spent much time together

Full interview with His Holiness the Dalai Lama

This is the full interview with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. As you can imagine, we were eager to interview his Holiness because of his interactions with David Bohm. Bohm taught his Holiness about quantum physics. His Holiness often referred to David Bohm as his “science guru”. So, we were curious to hear the Dalai Lama’s thoughts on quantum physics, the concept that nothing objectively exists, and that reality exists in the consciousness of the Observer. We were given full access to his Holiness who welcomed us with generosity, kindness and with great compassion. In his own inimitable way, he spoke

The Finite Potential: Asking the Forbidden Questions

One of the troubling things about modern (“quantum”) physics, and which lends a dangerous feeling of esotericism to the field, is the list of proscriptions it often comes with: we can’t know this, you’re not allowed to ask that, you’re asking the wrong question. What makes David Bohm a hero to me has less to do with the particular view of the quantum world he championed than with his courage in general to ask whatever he wanted to. Much of the “conventional” view of quantum mechanics is summarized by the debates Bohr & Einstein had at the 1927 Solvay conference,

The Infinite Potential: Ongoing Experiments

Having been a colleague and collaborator of David Bohm for over thirty years, I congratulate Paul Howard for producing a film that captures the spirit of David Bohm as I saw him. The film is not about physics or about Bohm’s physics, but about how physics in the hands of a visionary led to a world view that was in complete contrast to the traditional reductionist and mechanical view. David Bohm has taken Niels Bohr’s notion of ‘quantum wholeness’ to a new level of understanding. Bohm was recognised by his contemporaries and invited to the Shelter Island conference after World War

A Flickering Reality

Fast reverse! When I was very young, I attended the Cinema regularly.As soon as the lights went down and the projector beam hit the screen, I entered another reality. I completely lost any awareness of those around me and was drawn into the reality of the movie. Often I wondered, as I walked home after such screenings, could the reality that I was witnessing in front of me be some kind of projection? This thought used to bother me a lot. My friends would often catch me spinning around at staggering speed to see if I could catch the un-seen

Statement from Co-Editor David Howard

It’s not often that a project comes along that gives one the opportunity to ask meaningful questions about ourselves as individuals, about life in general and what it is that motivates our behavior and approach to life. I had heard Paul talking about the David Bohm Infinite Potential project for some time but honestly thought it would be a very difficult project to get financed. The ideas sounded wonderful and very inspiring, ideas about wholeness, oneness, emergence and  transformation that embraced  the notion of consciousness and what that might be. These are all ideas I have been personally very interested

Imagery and Metaphor in Infinite Potential

I’m very honored to be among a select group of creative people who had the chance to contribute to the film Infinite Potential. Filmmaking is teamwork and we had a lot of amazing people working very hard to allow this project to manifest itself. As the cinematographer and one of the film’s editors, my primary contribution was to the visual language. My approach was to visualise the idea of “undivided wholeness” and come up with metaphoric montages that could do it justice. David Bohm referred to it as the “Implicate Order” enfolding into the “Explicate Order”––a notion he picked up
