Biophoton is a term defining the light living cells emanate. Biophoton comes from the Greek language; Bio meaning “life” and photon meaning “light”. It is ultraweak photon emission of electromagnetic radiation from living cells, thus indicating a biological quantum phenomenon. It is also known as; bioluminescence, chemiluminescence, ultraweak photon emissions, dark luminescence and other terms. Currently the International Institute of Biophysics is composed of scientist around the world that is continuing to discover new data on this and related subjects. Biophotonics is the science of interactions and emanations of light within living cells. It consists of the research and application of photons in their interactions within and on living biological systems and the spectral emissions in supermolecular processes in living tissues.
In the 1920s, the Russian scientist Alexander Gurwitsch reported “ultraweak” photon emissions from living tissues. His goal was to diagnose cancer. Eventually very sensitive electronic equipment sensitive (photomultiplier) was developed making it easier to detect ultra-weak photonic emissions. His term for them was “mitogenetic rays” he was convinced the emissions were connected to cell division. He got criticism for his discover because of the difficulty in replicating the findings. By 1923 Gurwitsch while working with onions he discovered that adjacent roots could stimulate each other while separated by quartz glass, other types of glass would not allow the communication to occur. The difference was that quartz glass allowed for a wide range light waves to pass thought, while the others do not.
In 1970 the then Professor/Theoretical Biophysicist Fritz-Albert Popp, and his research group, at the University of Marburg, Germany hypothesized that the biophotic action are part of the cellular communication process. He was the first to use the term biophoton. His team discovered that spectral distribution of light fell over a range of wavelengths from 300nm to 800nm. Popp says “We now know, today, that man is essentially a being of light.” His hypothesis has not won general acceptance among scientific community. The body purposely directs chemical reactions by means of electromagnetic vibrations, these photons of light seem to control everything in the cell. Different frequencies perform different functions. Popp found that molecules in the cells responded to certain frequencies, and that a range of vibrations from the photons caused a variety of frequencies in other molecules. Any change in the biological and physiological state of the living system is reflected in the biophoton emission. Other scientific studies concluded that injured cells will emit a higher biophotonic signal than healthy, which is thought to be an indication of distress. Though there is little evidence in the scientific literature supporting the existence of such a signaling mechanism. Popp came to realize that light in the body might even hold the key to health and illness.
Light is an ideal communication system for the transfer of information to many cells across the organism. It was also discovered that DNA sends out a range of frequencies, some linked to certain functions. Popp feels that one of the most essential sources of light and biophoton emissions was DNA. DNA being the master tuning fork of the body, activating particular frequency and certain molecules would follow. Is this possibly the missing link of DNA theory, the greatest miracle and mystery in biology, how a single cell can turn into a fully formed human being?
Popp compared the light from free-range hen’s eggs with that from penned-in, caged hens. The photons in the free-range birds were far more coherent than those that were caged. He went on to use biophoton emissions as a tool for measuring the quality of food. The healthiest food had the lowest and most coherent intensity of light. Any disturbance in the system increased the production of photons. Health was a state of perfect subatomic communication, and ill health was a state of communication breakdown. We are ill when our waves are out of synch. Slowly, a few select scientists around the globe began to consider that the body’s communication system might be a complex network of resonance and frequency. What they found was nothing short of astonishing.
V.P. Kaznacheyev performed experiments with light inter-organism communication. Two groups of cells were selected from the same cell culture. One cell culture was used as the initiation sample and was subjected to a chemical poison or virus, etc. The second cell culture was observed, to ascertain any transmitted effects from the culture sample being killed. When the window was made of ordinary glass, the second sample remained alive and healthy. When the window was made of quartz, the second sample sickened and died with the same symptoms as the primary sample. There were several thousand experiments done, all in total darkness. The major transmission difference between window glass and quartz is that quartz transmits both ultraviolet and infrared well, while glass is relatively opaque to ultraviolet and infrared. The healthy cells are bombarded with death messages from those that are dying, and this diffuses the death pattern throughout the healthy culture, eventually kindling into the same death pattern there.
Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist Pjotr Garjajev claims that this communication between individual cells has deep ramifications. He claims organisms use this “light” to “talk” to other organisms and suggested that this could explain telepathy and ESP. Humans might be wired for psychic communication based on our DNA.
