implicate order


It is this “higher-dimension reality” that [physicist David] Bohm called the “implicate order.” This level of quantum potentiality Bohm considered as being the quantum ground out of which both the subjective and objective realms of the experiential “explicate” world emerge:

If matter and consciousness could in this way be understood together, in terms of the same general notion of order, the way would be opened to comprehending their relationship on the basis of some common ground. Thus we could come to the germ of a new notion of unbroken wholeness, in which consciousness is no longer to be fundamentally separated from matter.
