By the time the two met, Krishnamurti was eighty-five and Bohm sixty-three. Their dialogues, eventually published as The Ending of Time: Where Philosophy and Physics Meet public library , are among the most intensely intelligent and illuminating packets of human thought ever produced.
In one of the most stimulating portions of the conversation, they probe the interplay of freedom and the ego — a centerpiece of Eastern philosophy. Echoing Simone Weil on the purest form of thought , they consider the question of an intelligence that transcends thought:.
JK: Thought is the movement between the particular and the general, and thought is also born out of the image of what has been accumulated. That is deeply embedded in me. I recognize it is somewhat necessary physically. But how do I set about realizing that psychologically it is not? How do I, who have had the habit of accumulating for millennia, general and particular, not only recognize the habit, but when I do recognize the habit, how does that movement come to an end?
That is the real question. JK: Is it intelligence? Is it so-called ordinary intelligence or some other intelligence, something entirely different? One cannot accumulate love. JK: It sounds silly!

That is all romantic nonsense, cinema stuff. You cannot accumulate love. You cannot associate it with hate. That love is something entirely different. And has that love intelligence? Which then operates? Which then breaks down the wall? The wall refers to the limitations of the human mind — the barrier, erected by our consciousness, between what we perceive to be true and the larger Truth of reality.
Krishnamurti considers why love, not thought alone, is necessary for breaking down that wall:. I know all the physical bit. I realize pleasure, desire, accumulation, remembrance, images, are not love. Limits of Thought is an important book by two very respected and important thinkers.
