Physicist John Wheeler Enters the Black Hole (Dies at 96)

April 14, 2008

American physicist John Wheeler died sunday morning in New Jersey. Wheeler, who coined the term blackhole, entered his personal gravitational collapse by pneumonia. Wheelr was one of last physicists that discussed quantum conundrums with Einstein, Bohr, Oppenheimer. He leaves an enormous body of work and some of the most insightful perceptions

“The black hole teaches us that space can be crumpled like a piece of paper into an infinitesimal dot, tha time can be extinguished like a blown-out flame, and that the laws of physics that we regard as ‘sacred,’ as immutable, are anything but,”

“Nothing is more important in quantum principles than this: that is destroys the world as something exterior, with the observer separated from it as if by a thick glass window.  Even observing an object as tiny as an electron the glass must be shattered. I must penetrate. A measurement equipment must be installed.  And then he should decide if it is going t measure position or moment. Installing the equipment to measure one excludes the other,  even more the measurement changes the state of the electron. The universe will never be the same. To describe what has happened, one has to cross out the old word observer and in its place put the word participant. In a strange sense the universe is an active participant.

One must speak in terms of participation, the objet and the subject merge into the omniject. 

May he rest in peace and find the vortex of light and fusion, becoming that that he dearly studied.

Profile: David Bohm

November 28, 2007

David Bohm american born theoretical physicist (December 20, 1917 Wilkes-Barre, PA–October 27, 1992 London, Uk) author (or discoverer) of an extremely elegant model of the universe that tunes-in with the deepest intuition of undivided wholeness. He is undoubtedly the foremost figure in what is known as the holographic paradigm, a shift from a ratio-mechanical worldview into an all-inclusive perspective of the world as an interconnected whole where, as in a hologram, every part contains the in-formation of the entire photograph or universe.

” a hologram reveals how total content–in principle extending over the whole of space and time–is enfolded in the movement of waves (electromagnetic and other kinds) in any given region.”

“All the worlds whirl in a grain of sand”.

“light is the means by which the entire universe unfolds into itself.

Bohm is like the priest of the future, that weds back science with religion and art, that looks more like the past, riding the spirit of present times, weaving together rigorous episteme with resonating fractal intuition.

David Bohm wears Indra’s jeweled net on his neck.

As a child Bohm experienced the call of the secret in the woods and developed an unquenchable drive to seek for the hidden cause of things. (He later developed the hidden variables theory).

Like Blake and Einstein, Bohm pre-emphasized imagination as a way to attain knowledge. In this way empathizing with the deep order lying within -the creative and dynamic process of consciousness unfolding into manifest reality.

Bohm faced persecution for alleged communist beliefs which led him to exile. Later he faced collegiate dissaproval and tagbearing which deemed him as more of a mystic than a methodistic scientist. However Bohm remained true to himself. Working the out-of-bounds akash with dandy math.

Some of Bohm’s friends and associates where: Albert Einstein, Oppenheimer (Bohm refused to particpate in the Manhattan Project), J. Krishnamurti, Stan Grof, Karl Pribram, The Dalai Lama (Bohm was his personal physics teacher).
