My suggestion is not to look at the title, Infinite Potential as just speaking of Bohm, Peat, Howard or any other specific person.  I suggest the title refers to everything and everyone.  This means you, the reader.  In my understanding, infinity exists side-by-side with nothing.  This is its limitation.  Without the finite, the infinite has no sense of Her-His Self.  This is why there is the dark circle within the white half of the Tao symbol and a white circle (yang or male) within the dark (yin or female) half.  To be whole, the Unmanifest (Yin) needs to manifest (Yang, the spark or Eros of creation).  Thus the Unlimited is inherent in the Limited and the Limited is inherent in the Unlimited. Their ongoing dance together is the dance of Life itself.

Duality, the beginning division of Genesis--be it of the Cosmos or the human egg--is  the beginning of self-awareness.  If nothing exists within you except you within your self, how would you know anything?  Thus, it is in the manifestation of potentials (i.e., the finite) of evolution that the Unlimited ultimately sees itself.

The real question is: "What potentials exist in you?"   Beyond that, "Which of these potentials do you choose to manifest?"

Sit with those questions for a while.  Perhaps the unfolding of potential in you is the true dream of David Bohm as well as Peat and Howard?  Or, perhaps the true author is Nature, Yahweh (I AM) or Brahman (the Self)?  Is there truly a distinction between I and Thou?
