Beyond Bohm 2024, Part 1 – Discovering the Deep Logic of Earth

Rocks as verbs? Stones with subtle wisdom? Experiencing Earth with the fourth dimension of Deep Time? Marcia Bjornerud is doing in geology what Tim Ingold has done in anthropology and David Bohm has done in physics: make new levels of embodied meaning available to non-specialists while challenging our reflexive perceptions of the world.

Beyond Bohm 2024, Part 1 – Finding David Bohm – and Beyond

In this session, Pam Harris will share with us some of her contemplations of scientific and philosophical questions—including those of David Bohm—and how those contemplations translate to canvas. If contemporary abstract painting has eluded you, this is an opportunity to get a first-hand sensibility of how one artist creates such works.

Free Science in a Free Society: Celebrating Feyerabend’s Centennial

In order to celebrate the centennial of Feyerabend’s birth (and three decades since he passed away), Vandana and Alex will be in dialogue for about one hour, reflecting on his legacy and its impact today. They will discuss current pernicious monotheisms of the mind and, based on general principles and concrete examples, entertain and illustrate alternatives in physics, neurobiology, agriculture, and economy. We would then open it up for questions and comments from the audience.

Book-A-Month Club – Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions

What is it like to be a square living in a two-dimensional world? How would other inhabitants —such as lines, triangles, circles, or irregular shapes—cohabitate with one another in Flatland? What would they say if a sphere came down into their world? Could they glimpse a higher dimensional reality?

Published 140 years ago, this 96-page satirical novel is of contemporary relevance. Under the pseudonym “A Square”, the English schoolmaster and theologian E. A. Abbott narrates the daily adventures of such geometrical figures and provides valuable insights into human transcendence.

From subtle geometry to intricate sociology, Flatland helps us make the supernatural natural by conceiving it as high-dimensional. It is indeed a timely parable to deal with ontological shock of certain anomalous experiences in the age of science. Seeing a greater reality requires a greater vision. Our limited view of the world can be expanded via mathematical imagination.

Beyond Bohm 2024 – Part 2

After an introduction to Bohm’s physics, we will explore the relations between Russellian monism, William James’s radical empiricism and Bohm’s implicate order; some traditional and recent (e.g., Johanna Seibt’s) work on process philosophy and how it connects with Bohm’s ideas; the idea of quantum properties of matter as potentialities in Bohm’s early thought; the influence of Hegel on Bohm’s ideas about fragmentation and wholeness; and whether Bohm’s notion of active information is a candidate for a unifying notion of information.
