He was one of the 20th Century’s most brilliant physicists. Albert Einstein called him his spiritual son. The Dalai Lama relied upon him as his “science guru.” So why is it that hardly any of us know the name: David Bohm?

By telling the little-known story of David Bohm and evoking the realms he explored in his research, INFINITE POTENTIAL takes us on a mesmerizing and immersive journey into the mystery of Consciousness––through the use of hypnotic music and rich visual tapestries. The film includes interviews with luminaries such as H.H. the Dalai Lama, esteemed artist Antony Gormley, Oxford philosopher and physicists Sir Roger Penrose, and many more who were influenced by Bohm’s revolutionary work.

Growing up in a poor Pennsylvania coal-mining town during the Great Depression, David Bohm possessed a rare and maverick intelligence that baffled his parents and peers. After earning a scholarship to go to college, Bohm got the attention of the greatest minds in science, including Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the Atomic Bomb, who became his thesis advisor but would eventually turn against him.

Bohm’s explorations led him to intuit a hidden order to reality––the Quantum Potential––that underlies both the microscopic world of subatomic particles and also the macro world of stars and galaxies. Bohm had turned to Eastern thought and the wisdom traditions of India to talk about something that underlies all of creation––a realm that mystics have known about for millennia and modern science is only just beginning to explore. Bohm’s revolutionary ideas were way ahead of their time––a threat to the scientific orthodoxy. And that’s why he was dismissed.

Today, University College London and the University of Toronto are conducting experiments to prove the existence of the Quantum Potential, which could revolutionize human thought, our relationship to the planet––and David Bohm could well become a household name.


I became aware of David Bohm in the 1970's through his long-enduring relationship with Indian sage, Jiddhu Krishnamurti
David Bohm & Krishnamurti

I had not really heard of David Bohm before, but have heard mention of some of his theories. I noticed Rupert Sheldrake mention this documentary on his Facebook page. There will be a virtual screening and Q&A with a panel of people including Sheldrake, I believe, on July 18th 2020:

Anyone befriending proved frauds like Einstein and Krishnamurti should be looked at very cautiously.

I am just curious, I don't know much about Krishnamurti - but how was Einstein a fraud? Are you talking about his work with the atom bomb?

Einstein was a certified thief: and this is why the Nobel committee could never give him the prize for his relativity theory but only later on for the photo electric effect, since the proofs of his plagiarism of Poincare were all over the place.

Krishnamurti was a boy that the head of the theosophy society, Charles Leadbeter, a known homosexual and pedophile, took a sexual interest in and subsequently fabricated this messiah cult around him.

A homosexual AND a pedophile?! That doesn't sound very enlightening...
