Often when I see things like this I am reminded that this order arose by chance, not the blind chance that we usually think of when we use the word chance, but something far deeper and more profound. When I was studying engineering in college, every semester we had to take some form of Calculus and Differential Equations. As we got into our other courses: Engineering Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Circuit Analysis, etc. two things became obvious to me. One was that the development of these branches of mathematics were actually older than the disciplines that made use of them. These equations were developed entirely in the abstract by mathematicians who did not have a thought as to there being a practical application for these equations. The second thing was that in various applications as different as a tuned circuit in an electronic application, the springs and shocks of an automobile and the stress on a beam, the same type equations would describe what was happening.
How was it, I asked, that these mathematicians, hundreds of years before their mathematics found any practical applications, were able to come up with a complicated abstraction that would later become the basis of the analysis of a wide diversity of natural systems? Is there something about our brains, which have arisen out of the same natural order as the processes that we are analyzing, that are tuned to and operate by the same laws that underlie all other manifestations in the physical universe? Is there an implicate order that we don't see because the order that we normally perceive (the explicate order) blinds us to other more profound levels? Below is David Bohm's definition of the Implicate Order:
In the enfolded [or implicate] order, space and time are no longer the dominant factors determining the relationships of dependence or independence of different elements. Rather, an entirely different sort of basic connection of elements is possible, from which our ordinary notions of space and time, along with those of separately existent material particles, are abstracted as forms derived from the deeper order. These ordinary notions in fact appear in what is called the "explicate" or "unfolded" order, which is a special and distinguished form contained within the general totality of all the implicate orders (Bohm 1980, p. xv).
