Ancient Knowledge (Redux) - Prelude / David Bohm Tribute

If you are not familiar with the thoughts and works of David Bohm take time to listen to this video, he has much to say that is needed in our thinking today.

David Bohm (1917–1992)

"I have had in the past the greatest confidence in Dr. Bohm as a scientist and as a man, and I continue to do so.

—Albert Einstein

David Bohm is a hard man to describe. He saw life as one whole, one total movement, and therefore never limited his inquiries to any particular field of study.

Bohm was best known as a gifted physicist and a truly original thinker. He made numerous contributions to quantum physics while challenging its orthodoxy (for which he was marginalized). He may yet become known for establishing a new kind of science with a new form of order at its foundation. For a comprehensive overview of Bohm’s scientific work, consult the biography David Bohm: A Life Dedicated to Understanding the Quantum World by Olival Freire Junior. Bohm’s last book, which was published after his passing, and which was co-written with physicist Basil Hiley, also provides an overview of Bohm’s physics.." from the article: David Bohm (1917–1992)

Ancient Knowledge (Redux): Prelude / David Bohm Tribute

"In remembrance of my mentor. Rest in Peace. David Bohm speaks on "thought" and "fragmentation". The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves and that's my main goal / priority to help you become an authentic human being able to think for yourself and to become self-observant. That's what real teachers do. Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom. The first thing you have to know is yourself. A man who knows himself can step outside himself and watch his own reactions like an observer. When you don't know yourself, who you are and what you want, you just become a product of your environment - a leaf that gets blown each and every way until it just lands, in a big pile of mud, and gets stuck. A person must know who he is. A person must understand himself, improve himself, learn his weaknesses in order to overcome them. We are raising up a new generation of kids who refuse to look at themselves by being constructively critical of themselves. We are teaching them as a society to cast blame on others. I live in a place where people like to criticize, gossip, turn things bigger than what they are, but refuse to look at themselves first before casting the first stone. Matthew 7:3-5 (KJV) 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. 1 Corinthians 11:28 (KJV) 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. 2 Corinthians 13:5 (KJV) 5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? Galatians 6:4-5 (KJV) 4 But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5 For each one shall bear his own load. Lamentations 3:40 (KJV) 40 Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the Lord. Scared to look in the mirror. No humility. I like how everyone can judge the hell out of everyone else but refuse to look at themselves as flawed. They focus on others as the source of their problems, and refuse to look at themselves in terms of what they could do differently. So others are blamed. Some of them might never get past this stage, and the violent biofeedback loops that control them. In general, people tend to look outward for a “fix” to their problems. It is the act of a broken and polarized brain. What i find most perplexing is the fact that especially religious folks will refuse to look at themselves when their own bible teaches the complete opposite of what they have come to believe. "Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny." - Lao Tzu "The ability to perceive or think differently is more important than the knowledge gained." - David Bohm" from video introduction
