Origins of Biophoton

1980s; earliest use found in Nature: a weekly journal of science

We are still on the threshold of fully understanding the complex relationship between light and life, but we can now say emphatically, that the function of our entire metabolism is dependent on light.”

Prof. Fritz-Albert

Biophoton emission is the spontaneous emission of ultraweak light emanating from all living systems, including man. The emission is linked to the endogenous production of excited states within the living system. The detection and characterisation of human biophoton emission has led to suggestions that it has potential future applications in medicine.
Photon emission recording techniques have reached a stage that allows resolution of the signal in time and space. The published material is presented and includes aspects like spatial resolution of intensity, its relation to health and disease, the aspect of colour, and methods for analysis of the photon signal.

This discovery may indeed be the key to understanding man’s place in the world.  If we give off late by the nature of orexistence, then it stands to reason that light is indeed what we are made of at a conscious level.  For more on Biophotons, see this article:
