Pylkkanen makes use of strategies corresponding to "implicate order," "active information," and "soma-significance" as instruments to take on famous difficulties within the philosophy of brain reminiscent of psychological causation, the tough challenge of recognition, time awareness, and digital truth. Pylkkanen's eclectic procedure combines new physics-based insights with these of analytical philosophy, phenomenology, cognitive technology and neuroscience and proposes a view within which the mechanistic framework of classical physics and neuroscience is complemented via a extra holistic underlying framework within which wide awake adventure unearths its position extra evidently.

In the famous two-slit experiment) is simply that each particle has a wave associated with it and guiding it. Bohm indeed proposed, independently discovering and further developing an idea de Broglie had already in the 1920s, that we should look at an individual quantum system, such as an electron, as a combination of a particle and a new kind of wave, described by the wave function. He actually arrived at the idea when considering the relationship between quantum theory and classical physics. Strictly speaking, both quantum theory and classical physics apply to the same reality.

2 Bohm on Matter, Mind, and Their Relationship 29 cate order, in the form proposed in his 1980 book, was at a relatively early stage of development. It should be seen as a general framework of thought within which we may reasonably hope to develop a more detailed content that would make progress toward removing the gulf between mind and matter. (Bohm 1990, pp. 273–4) Bohm notes that even on the physical side, the theory about the implicate order lacks a well-defined set of general principles that would determine how the potentialities enfolded in the implicate order are actualized as relatively stable and independent forms in the explicate order.

What we call a “particle” could then be seen as a certain phase in the movement of these waves, namely that phase when the incoming wave has closed in, giving rise to an intense, particle-like pulse in a small region. Bohm did not, at the time, further pursue this idea of an electron being an aspect of a process of outgoing and incoming waves. However, as we will see later, it plays an important role in his “implicate order” approach, with its notions of “enfoldment” and “unfoldment”, which he began to develop in the 1960s.
