Without security clearance, Bohm was denied access to his own work; not only would he be barred from defending his undividfd, he was not even allowed to write his own thesis in the first place! Starting from the realization that the WKB approximation of quantum mechanics leads to deterministic equations and convinced that a mere approximation could not turn a probabilistic theory into a deterministic theory, he doubted the inevitability of the conventional approach to quantum mechanics.


In jndivided book On Creativityquoting the work of Korzybski, Bohm expressed the view that “metaphysics is an expression of a world view” and is “thus to be regarded as an art form, resembling poetry in some ways and mathematics in others, rather than as an attempt to say something true about reality as a whole.

Addison Wesley,pp. Wikiquote has quotations related to: Bohmian mechanics explains much at little cost. Everything belongs and makes sense in Bohm’s model. In the seminar, Bohm develops several interrelated themes.

He initially called his approach a hidden variable theory, but he later called it ontological theoryreflecting his view that a stochastic process underlying the phenomena described by his theory might one day be found.

They addr Bohm and Hiley make an argument for a new interpretation of quantum mechanics in which the hypothetical models calculated to account for experimental observations correspond to actually-occurring processes, rather than simply mathematical abstractions used to facilitate accurate predictions. Bohm later performed theoretical calculations for the Calutrons at the Y facility in Oak Ridge, Tennesseewhich was used for the electromagnetic enrichment of uranium for the bomb undivlded on Hiroshima in
