The idea for the name of this marvelous ambient album comes from the metaphysical concept invented by David Bohm called "Holomovement", which is a key part in his interpretation of quantum mechanics and a theoretical model that describes his view on reality, implying "undivided wholeness in flowing movement". The terms holo and movement refer to two fundamental features of reality. The movement portion refers to the fact that reality is in a constant state of change and flux. The holo portion signifies that reality is structured in a manner that is very similar to a hologram. According to the holographic model, the mind/body ultimately cannot distinguish the difference between the neural holograms the brain uses to experience reality and the ones it conjures up while imagining reality. Bohm states that our brains are smaller pieces of the larger hologram, and that our brains contain the whole knowledge of the universe. Our brains are our windows of perception. Each mind always contains the whole picture, but with a limited and unclear perspective. We each have different experience in our lives, but each perspective is valid. Our brains mathematically construct objective reality by interpreting frequencies that are ultimately projections form another dimension, a deeper order of existence that is beyond both space and time. Therefore, mind contributes to the phenomenon of reality itself, not just to the knowledge of it. In a brain that operates holographically, the remembered image of a thing can have as much impact on the senses as the thing itself. The "holo" part is also a reference to holism, the view that a whole cannot be reduced to it's constituent parts.

This undivided whole, is a kind of invisible ether from which all things arise and into which all things eventually dissolve. Holomovement is the underlying flow of thought, matter and energy, in which reality (or the possible realities) can be experienced, and is Bohm's word for things being enfolded in themselves (all consciousness is "implied" by any mind, all time in one nanosecond, all matter in any atom, etc.) The universe and mind are the same substance. According to this viewpoint, the tangible reality of our everyday lives is really a kind of illusion, like a holographic image. Underlying it is a deeper order of existence, a vast and more primary level of reality that gives birth to all the objects and appearances of our physical world.

Bohm calls this deeper level of reality "the implicate order" (which means enfolded or hidden), and he refers to our own level or existence as the explicate, or unfolded order. Put another way, electrons and all other particles are no more substantive or permanent then the form a geyser of water takes as it gushes out of a fountain. They are sustained by a constant influx from the implicate order, and when a particle appears to be destroyed, it is not lost. It has merely enfolded back into the deeper order from which it sprang. The brain is the medium for insights from the implicate order, as a radio is a medium for a speech or a song. Mind requires a brain for its perception of physical existence, but physical existence is only one manifestation of mind.
