They develop an interpretation of quantum mechanics which gives a clear, intuitive understanding of its meaning and in which there is a coherent notion of the reality of the universe without assuming a uinverse role for the human uinverse.
With the aid of new concepts such as active information together with non-locality, they provide a comprehensive account of all the basic features of quantum mechanics, including the relativistic domain and quantum field theory.
It is shown that, with the new approach, paradoxical or unsatisfactory univeese associated with the standard approaches, such as the wave-particle duality and the collapse of the wave function, do not arise. Finally, the authors make new suggestions and indicate some areas in which one may expect quantum theory to break down in a way that will allow for a test.
The Undivided Universe is an important book especially because it provides a different overall world view which is neither mechanistic nor reductionist.
This view will ultimately have radical implications not only in physics but also in our general approach to all areas of life. Paperbackpages.

David Bohm – Wikipedia
I have been working up to being able to read this book from cover to cover, and at least have some idea of what the most technical sections are arguing, since I first started studying Bohm’s ideas in the late s. If one can get through the complex physics context of his insights, I believe he expresses a revolutionary degree of sanity and simplicity.
Everything belongs and makes sense in Bohm’s model. The classical worldview is a limiting condition already contained in the quantum model, not I have been working up to being able to read this book from cover to cover, and at least have some idea of what the most technical sections are arguing, since I first started studying Bohm’s ideas in the late s.
The classical worldview is a limiting condition already contained in the quantum model, not an external to be presupposed and grappled with for historical reasons. Quantum processes occur independent of observations. Time doesn’t flow backwards as in Feynman Diagrams, or delayed choice experiments. Non-locality like the EPR experiments is the rule, not the exception.
Mind and Matter are both expressions of the same implicit holistic flow, not opposed to each other or separated arbitrarily. In short, this book makes a highly articulate case for an ontological holism that has the ability to make intuitive, graspable, simple in its own way sense of the physical world and Everything.
It is worth reading even for the physics novice.
It is about a lot more than re-framing contemporary quantum mechanics with a more intuitive paradigm. It is intensely consistent and coherent in its approach to all of experience, and treats physical theory and mathematics as descriptive of cavid ever-evolving horizon of our total understanding.

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. This interpretation leads them to suggest that the quantum field comprises a pool of non-locally communicating information which informs the behavior of classically observable fields and particles.
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.
They address the implications of their interpretation for quantum theory’s a priori hypotheses as well as its experimental results, and show that they arrive at results identical to those of traditional interpretations.
Their proofs do make heavy use of the algebraic equations particular to quantum theory, but as long as one already has some grasp of the concepts and notation of such representations it is possible to comprehend their conclusions, if not follow all of their arguments in line-by-line detail.
Nov 06, Chris Marks rated it it was amazing. I do not understand why Bohm’s ideas are not more widely accepted and appreciated. Bohmian mechanics explains much at little cost.
Jun 25, Mitch Allen rated it really liked it. Bohm’s ambitious book—his last, published after his death—attempts to prove his quantum theory mathematically and show that it is the most complete theory for the moment.
He subsumes the common theory by providing a model for a holistic, quantum universe, not merely predicting experimental results, and shows that the classical physics world is a sub-world of a quantum one.

The mathematics can be difficult for the non-technical reader, but overall some very intriguing stuff, particularly his digressions into consciousness and his explanations for classical dynamics as a function of quantum dynamics. Sep 18, Michael rated it it was ok. The quantum potential paradigm is neat; but like every other quantum mechanics book I’ve read, this one discusses a lot of meta-physics. Also, it’s obvious that Hiley rushed the book through the publisher after Bohm died to keep the Bohm name on the cover.
It could have used some more editing.
