There, he met Sarah “Saral” Woolfson, whom he married in During his early period, Bohm made a number of significant contributions to physics, particularly quantum mechanics and relativity undividwd.
Thought proceeds as if it is merely reporting objectively, but in fact, it is often coloring and distorting perception in unexpected ways. David Joseph Bohm December 20, — October 27, was an American scientist who has been described as one of the most significant theoretical physicists of the 20th century and who contributed innovative and unorthodox ideas to quantum theory, neuropsychology and the philosophy of mind.
Martin Gardner reported this in a Skeptical Inquirer article and also critiqued the views of Jiddu Krishnamurtiwith whom Bohm had met in and had had many subsequent exchanges.
Their proofs do make heavy use of the algebraic equations particular to quantum theory, but as long as one already has some grasp of the concepts and notation of such representations it is possible to comprehend their conclusions, if not follow all of their arguments in line-by-line detail.
