It was De Broglie, if I remember well.
Yet, de Broglie made clear that the piloting mechanism was local. Not
sure he would have followed Bohm, who after Bell-Aspect, accepts a non
local hidden variable theory, with a potential guiding the particle in
a field described by the wave.
Note that the potential which guides a universe in a universal wave
does emulate the entire multiverse. We still have alternate
doppelgangers, but they are not made of particles, despite they
participate to the same conversation, about waves consciousness and
They are not made of particles, and I guess Bohm would agree (for his
theory making sense) that they are not conscious. But with comp there
are conscious, in the sense "as conscious as us". Bohm leads to
explosion of the number of zombies with bodies lacking particles!
Bohm's theory, like Copenhagen formulation, postulates the universal
wave (the QM multiverse) + a selection principle.
Everett's theory postulates the universal wave , but the selection is
consciousness classical indeterminacy.
(This explains the illusion of the collapse)
Comp postulates + and *; and proves from that the existence of a multi-
dream, then like in Everett, selection is consciousness classical
(This explains (or must explain, by UDA) the illusion of the collapse
*and* of the wave, i.e. the "non illusion" of matter, i.e. the
arithmetical necessary probable perception of the wave in the mind of
the average universal number.
