Light as a Particle

Increasingly science agrees with the poetry of direct human experience:
we are more than the atoms and molecules that make up our bodies, but beings of light as well.
Biophotons are emitted by the human body, can be released through mental intention, and may modulate fundamental processes within cell-to-cell communication and DNA.

Nothing is more amazing than the highly improbable fact that we exist. We often ignore this fact, oblivious to the reality that instead of something there could be nothing at all, i.e. why is there a universe (poignantly aware of itself through us) and not some void completely unconscious of itself? Consider that from light, air, water, basic minerals within the crust of the earth, and the at least 3 billion year old information contained within the nucleus of one diploid zygote cell, the human body is formed, and within that body a soul capable of at least trying to comprehend its bodily and spiritual origins.

Given the sheer insanity of our existential condition, and bodily incarnation as a whole, and considering that our earthly existence is partially formed from sunlight and requires the continual consumption of condensed sunlight in the form of food, it may not sound so far fetched that our body emits light.

Indeed, the human body emits biophotons,

also known as ultraweak photon emissions (UPE),

with a visibility 1,000 times lower than the sensitivity of our naked eye.


More energetic wavelengths such as blue and ultraviolet caused more electrons to be ejected than red or infrared wavelengths. They also found that increasing the intensity of light increased the number of electrons ejected, but not their speed.

Karl Ernst Ludwig Marx Planck, ForMemRS was a German theoretical physicist whose discovery of energy quanta won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918. He realized that the energy of the electromagnetic radiation was proportional to its frequency, but admitted that he didn’t understand why this was the case and said it was lucky guesswork.

Einstein was the first to explain what was happening.

He theorized that electromagnetic energy comes in packets, or quanta which we now call photons.

So light behaves as a wave and as a particle,

depending on the circumstances and the effect being observed.

This concept is now known as wave-particle duality. Einstein won the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics “for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect”.
