    I was just reading Mary Settegast’s (2001) book, Mona Lisa’s Moustache: Making Sense of a Dissolving World. Here she says, “Ultimately, Bohm believes, the entire universe–including human beings, their laboratories, and observing instruments–must be understood as a single undivided whole, in which analysis into separate and independently existing parts would have no fundamental status: ‘What is implied by this proposal is that what we call empty space contains an immense background of energy, and that matter as we know it is a small, ‘quantized’ wavelike excitation on top of this background, rather like a tiny ripple on a vast sea.'” (p. 47)
