An explicate order is a framework for understanding reality that is based on the abstractions that humans normally perceive, such as space, time, and matter. It is contrasted with an implicate order, which is a deeper and more fundamental order of reality that transcends the conventional notions of space and time. The concept of explicate and implicate orders was coined by theoretical physicist David Bohm to explain the paradoxical behaviours of quantum phenomena.
