By Charl Biederman

"It was once sheer probability that I encountered David Bohm's writing in 1958 ... I knew not anything approximately him. What struck me approximately his paintings and triggered my preliminary letter was once his underlying attempt to hunt for a few greater feel of fact, which appeared a truly humanized search." - Charles Biederman, from the foreword of the bookThis booklet marks the start of a 4 thousand web page correspondence among Charles Biederman, founding father of Constructivism within the Nineteen Thirties, and David Bohm the celebrated physicist identified for his interpretation of quantum conception. on hand for the 1st time, we're given a unprecedented chance to learn via and have interaction in a impressive transatlantic, highbrow dialogue on artwork and technology, creativity and idea.

Example text

Another side is the future, which is yet to come. On the basis of some limited knowledge of the past, we try to project our knowledge, with limited success, towards the future. Actually, what is present now is neither the past nor the future, but a reflection of these, which if inter-preted properly would tell us, in principle, all about them (only that this would require an infinite effort of interpretation). The split that we make at each moment is to divide all existence, at that moment, into two sides, one reflecting that which has been, the other implying that which will be.

We experience this ambiguity in certain ways directly. For when we try to say “now”, we find that by the time we have said it, the time that we meant is already past, and no longer “now”. And if we try to do it with clocks, so as to be more precise, quantum theory implies that a similar ambiguity would arise because of the quantal structure of matter. In fact, there is no known way to make an unambiguous distinction between past and future. If we follow through the consequences of this ambiguity, we see that there is room for genuine freedom.

You write about the problem of the historical past and the future. It seems to me that the physicist is one who, in respect to nature, the further he gets into the “future” of nature, the less he cares about the “past” experience of nature. It seems that what he once saw as the reality of nature, which continues to remain a reality of nature in spite of his denial, should be retained in any totality picture of nature which the physicist makes. I have the impression that the physicist is perpetually seeking an a or the reality, when all we experience on all levels of nature comprises the totality of nature’s reality.
