On Visibility and Fragmentation

Speaker: Mikki Morrissette, Member

David Bohm in his 1980 book “Wholeness and the Implicate Order,” wrote that “wholeness is what is real” and that our human need to break things down into fragments creates an illusionary sense that our world is not, at its essence, interconnected. Bohm’s message was that humans tend to look at surface reality and confuse it for truth. In this talk, Mikki explores the fundamental level we don’t see, and discusses a “Sustainable We” vision. If we start with the notion that our community/ world/ universe is connected, then maybe the ways we divide ourselves up politically, economically and socially will no longer make sense to us.
