In his conception of the holomovement, Bohm used the analogy of the hologram to explain the appearance of objects in the world. He suggested that the world is comprised of imperceptible (to the human eye) energy within which no internal or external distinctions exist and, as in holographic technology, opacity is created by wave frequency interference. In other words, all material things arise from patterns of interference, or folds, temporarily highlighted in the mobility of a universal flux.   Read more
