Infinite Potential: The Life & Ideas of David Bohm

By Dev Singh 14 June 2020
Tune in next Saturday, June 20, 2020, for a YouTube Live event premiering a new film on David Bohm’s life and ideas. Infinite Potential: The Life & Ideas of David Bohm tells the story of David Bohm’s life and introduces his scientific and philosophical ideas in a series of 17 interviews with scientists, philosophers, scholars, colleagues, and friends.

Bohm’s scientific explorations led him to hypothesize a hidden order to reality––the Quantum Potential––that underlies both the microscopic world of subatomic particles and also the macro world of stars and galaxies.

Beyond physics, Bohm also had a keen interest in the mystery of consciousness,  the workings of language, and the process of inter-personal dialogue. These interests evolved during his 25-year friendship with Krishnamurti whom he met while working at the University of Bristol. The recordings of this series of discussions with Krishnamurti were published as the book The Ending of Time: Where Philosophy and Physics Meet and are also available for viewing on YouTube. You can view the first of the series here:

David Bohm & J. Krishnamurti: Conversation 1 with David Bohm - Is there an action not touched by thought?

Two interviews will be of special interest to those who know Bohm mainly via his association with Krishnamurti. The first, an interview with Lee Nichol, a former teacher at Oak Grove School and the editor of David Bohm’s On Dialogue, On Creativity, and The Essential David Bohm. Second, the interview with David Moody, a long-time editor of Krishnamurti’s works and the author of An Uncommon Collaboration: David Bohm and J. Krishnamurti as well as the recently published book Krishnamurti in America.
