It has been proven that all living cells emit light. The small fraction of light a living cell emanates has been termed “biophoton.” This term comes from the Greek, with bio meaning “life” and photon meaning “light” (not to be confused with “bioluminescence,” the energy released by fireflies, angelfish and other creatures). Biophotonics is the science of interactions and emanations of light within living cells. This phenomenon has various scientific names:
• biophoton
• biofields
• bioelectromagnetics
• low level biological chemiluminescence
• ultra weak photon emissions (UPE)
• mitogenetic radiation/rays
• bioelectromagnetics
• dark luminescence

Biophotonic energy might be the driving force for all the molecules in the human body. The cell emanates the most light during cell birth and death. Any change in the biological or physiological state of the living system is reflected in the biophoton emission.

Scientists have been researching biophotonics for nearly a century. While developing a method for cancer diagnosis in 1923, Russian scientist Alexander Gurwitsch encountered ultra-weak photon emissions from living tissues and introduced the concept of a morphogenetic field.

A famous example of Seymon Kirlian technique photograph is the image of a hand outlined with light during the opening credits of The X-Files. While little photobiological research has been done to follow up on Kirlian's work, advocates believe these photographs can document emotional and physical changes determined by colors and patterns.

Currently Kirlian photography is being researched as a medical diagnostic tool. Its believed the fields act as fingerprints that can identify certain physical disorders and conditions, including brain tumors. Could the ability to detect human bio-magnetic fields become the most accurate diagnostic tool in medicine?

It is thought that free-radical reactions are partially responsible for higher biophotonic (light) emissions. In The Field, Lynne McTaggart hypothesizes that each cellular emission is like a musical instrument, imperceptible as a single unit and creating a harmonic symphony of light or “multitude of tuning forks that all begin resonating together.”

Is it possible that biological radiation is part of a deeper collective order in regulating organisms? It does sound a bit like science fiction to think of cells communicating with micro lasers. It will be interesting to see how future of biophotonic science and technology unfolds. This new understanding could have a major impact on how science views photobiology, how the medical industry treats illness and how diagnoses are made, in addition to finding new ways of responding to and eradicating disease.
