“A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely
rearranging their prejudices.”
David Bohm

“Perhaps there is more sense in our nonsense and more nonsense in our 'sense' than we would care to believe.”
David Bohm


Suppose we were able to share meanings freely without a compulsive urge to impose our view or conform to those of others and without distortion and self-deception. Would this not constitute a real revolution in culture? ”
David Bohm
