There is a famous criterion for objective wave function reduction which is derived by using the Shrödinger–Newton equation [L Diosi, Phys. Lett. A 105(4–5), 199 (1984)]. In this regard, a critical mass for the transition from quantum world to the classical world is determined for a particle or an object. In this paper, we shall derive that criterion by using the concept of Bohmian trajectories. This study has two consequences. The first is, it provides a geometric framework for the problem of wave function reduction. The second is, it represents the role of quantum and gravitational forces in the reduction process.
