Frozen Light


For Bohm the content of “empty space” is thus more than “zero point energy.” It is “light” which he considers not only energy but also information, i.e., the content, form and structure necessary to create meaning from that which is apprehended. “Light” is the means by which the entire universe unfolds into itself. “Light” exists – it just simply is and transcends the present structure of time and space. It forms the unity or background whose information content has the capacity for immense diversity. All matter is a condensation of “light” into patterns that move back and forth at average speeds which are less than the speed of light. Matter can be considered frozen “light.”


William Gough (1988)
