The Heart Sutra, taken from ancient Buddhism, concludes with this evocation of awakening, “gone, gone, gone to the farthest shore….”

‘This shore’ and ‘the other shore’, nowadays, have become common metaphors in spiritual discourse, ‘this side’ (here) representing the field of fragmented mind with its conflict of opposing dualities; ‘the other side’ (there) reflecting wholeness; the gap between these two signifying the great divide between this and that. But, as sages and mystics also have indicated, when one reaches the other side, he/she may find that it is this side—that always it has been this side, but now is differently perceived. This journey to perception is the journey beyond duality.

But what is this voyage—practically, beyond metaphor, beyond verbal description and explanation? What might it be to touch onto the ‘other shore’ as an actuality? David Bohm worked to open these questions at depth. Over the years, through talks, writings, and conversations, he shared an invitation to enquiry into and observation of ourselves in a movement that is away from nothing but, rather, is into what is. What he sought to open is a journey intimately within, which might well be characterized as “here, here, here upon the innermost shore.” Such exploration takes us beyond concepts, words, and their dualities. It leads us to preverbal territories which are in their nature without maps. It brings us to be way-finders on ‘no road’.

Here is the field that we propose to open to together—tentatively, subtly—considering both what Bohm and others have offered, and that which we may come upon ourselves.

David Schrum received his PhD in quantum theory at Queen’s University, following which he spent two post-doctoral years with David Bohm at Birkbeck College. Here, he entered Bohm’s world of creative and subtle philosophical approaches to physics and his enquiry into consciousness and what may lie beyond.

David Schrum continues in these explorations, in physics developing a new approach to relativistic quantum theory and, through the dialogue process, going into what it is to bring to light that which lies enfolded within our individual and collective consciousness.
