Science, Order, and Creativity, A Dramatic New Look at the Creative Roots of Science and Life
David Bohm and F. David Peat

1 "The activity of the imagination does not resemble a static picture but rather it is closer to a kind of 'play' that includes a subtle orchestration of feelings, as well as a sense of intention and will. Imagination is thus the beginning of the entry of creative perception into the domain of the manifest. Moreover, since form is defined by proportion and ratio, the imagination must also possess these in some implicit or enfolded sense. Intuitive or perceptive reason is the act, then, of making explicit the ratio or proportion that is already implicit in creative imagination."

2 "In communication, meaning unfolds into the whole community and unfolds from the community into each person. Thus, there is an internal relationship of human beings to each other, and to society as a whole. The explicate form of all this is the structure of society, and the implicate form is the content of the culture, which extends into the consciousness of each person."
