Beware the side of the brain that pumps for Trump

George Monbiot suggests we can see human values as clustering around two poles, extrinsic and intrinsic (To beat Trump, we need to know why Americans keep voting for him. Psychologists may have the answer, 29 January). There might be something more at play.

In 1980, physicist David Bohm wrote about explicate and implicate orders in reality. Before the advent of quantum theory, said Bohm’s colleague and biographer, David Peat, science dealt with the order of space and time, separation and distance, mechanical force and effective cause, which Bohm called the explicate order. He posited a deeper order, more congruent with quantum theory and closer to our unconditioned thought. He called it the implicate or enfolded order.

Previous attempts to grasp this “something” beyond us include the terms immanent and transcendent, emerging from Latin into Late Middle English. More relatable with Monbiot’s exposition: in 2009, Iain McGilchrist published a book whose subtitle is The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World. Hard-going but preferable to contemplating your actual Trump.
