Abstract

It has been suggested that the wave function of the universe is not ontic but nomological, and there are only particles in the ontology of Bohmian mechanics. In this paper, I argue that this view will lead to certain impossible situations, such as that two free Bohmian particles, which have exactly the same properties and the same state of motion initially, may have different states of motion later. In order to solve this issue, the wave function must be included in the ontology of Bohmian mechanics.
