In that picture, the classical limit for quantum phenomena, in terms of a condition that the action function is not much greater than Planck’s constantindicates one such criterion.
Bohm’s main concern was undlvided understanding the univegse of reality in general and of consciousness in particular as a coherent whole, which according to Bohm is never static or complete but rather an unfolding process.
