An implicate order is a concept in quantum theory proposed by David Bohm to describe a deeper and more fundamental level of reality that underlies the explicate or unfolded order that we normally perceive. According to Bohm, the implicate order is a plenum of potentiality that manifests in various forms through a process of enfoldment and unfoldment. The explicate order is derived from the implicate order by abstraction and is characterized by the notions of space, time, and separate material particles.
