"It was once sheer probability that I encountered David Bohm's writing in 1958 ... I knew not anything approximately him. What struck me approximately his paintings and caused my preliminary letter was once his underlying attempt to hunt for a few better feel of fact, which appeared a really humanized search." - Charles Biederman, from the foreword of the bookThis e-book marks the start of a 4 thousand web page correspondence among Charles Biederman, founding father of Constructivism within the Nineteen Thirties, and David Bohm the celebrated physicist identified for his interpretation of quantum concept. on hand for the 1st time, we're given a unprecedented chance to learn via and interact in a impressive transatlantic, highbrow dialogue on paintings and technological know-how, creativity and idea.

That which is limited. , everything is both finite and infinite, both limited and unlimited. I found your comments on the image of past and future in terms of red and blue lights very interesting. It is certainly true that the future is always implying some newness about the past, which “increasingly offers the means whereby we can most successfully discern the potentialities for freedom in the future”. However, it is here that the notion of ambiguity shows its importance and relevance. In other words, if the past were already something absolutely definite and determined, how could it in any way be changed at all by the future?
Nature is not a machine. Does man rely too much on the instrument, so much that today he permits it to deceive him because he assumes it no longer supplies a chain of causality? I mean, could it be that the instrument, even though it probes more deeply into nature than ever before, can no longer function so thoroughly for man as it did in the older mechanics? In the sense, that what the instrument now reveals demands more of him, of himself. Is this why men are now erecting absolutes from a state of desperation; a dualism in nature— comple-mentaries—a dualism between man and nature—indeterminism?
In other words, if the past were already something absolutely definite and determined, how could it in any way be changed at all by the future? If we assert that the past is inherently ambiguous as to what it is, at least to begin with, then we leave room, logically speaking, to assert further that the future changes the past, in the sense that future developments remove some of the ambiguity in what the past was. This means that on the basis of what may have revealed itself up to a certain point in time, the precise and detailed character of any given thing or event is ambiguous.
