"So one begins to wonder what is going to happen to the human race. Technology keeps on advancing with greater and greater power, either for good or for destruction."
"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."David Bohm on Albert Einstein
"The typewriting machine, when played with expression, is no more annoying than the piano when played by a sister or near relation."David Bohm on Oscar Wilde
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."David Bohm on Arthur C. Clarke
"The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty, and all forms of human life."David Bohm on John F. Kennedy
"I am sorry to say that there is too much point to the wisecrack that life is extinct on other planets because their scientists were more advanced than ours."David Bohm on John F. Kennedy
"During the past few decades, modern technology, with radio, TV, air travel, and satellites, has woven a network of communication which puts each part of the world in to almost instant contact with all the other parts."
"Yet, in spite of this world-wide system of linkages, there is, at this very moment, a general feeling that communication is breaking down everywhere, on an unparalleled scale."
"The ability to perceive or think differently is more important than the knowledge gained."
"Yet it looks as if the thing we use to solve our problems with is the source of our problems. It's like going to the doctor and having him make you ill. In fact, in 20% of medical cases we do apparently have that going on. But in the case of thought, its far over 20%."
"Then there is the further question of what is the relationship of thinking to reality. As careful attention shows, thought itself is in an actual process of movement."
