Do we radiate external and/or internal Bodies of Light? If so, are we enlightened?
Are we clusters of concrete clawing our way toward heaven?
If we live in the Light, don't we absorb the Light?
We are taught that the human body is about 60% percent water. But what percentage of our body is light?
We exist within an environment of sunlight. Wouldn't it be a logical assumption that the human body absorbs this light?
Proof for surface light
Three Japanese scientists, Masaki Kobayashi, Daisuke Kikuchi, and Hitoshi Okamura have imaged light coming from the human body. Their conclusion?
"By the regulation of a cellular respiratory chain producing reactive oxygen species, which in turn reacts with molecules including proteins, lipids and fluorophores whose excited states emit biophotons, the human body glitters to the rhythm of the circadian clock."
In other words, the interaction of oxygen and molecules generates excitement along the surface of the human body enough to emit light in relation to the time of day.
So, yes, we radiate surface light.
Is it possible to radiate light from within?
Popp claims we are light beings.
In 1970, Fritz-Albert Popp, a theoretical biophysicist at the University of Marburg in Germany, conducted an experiment in which he (past tense imposed by me):
"opened a chamber about the size of a bread box. He placed a fresh cutting from a plant and a wooden match in a plastic container inside the dark chamber and closed the light proof door. Immediately he switched on the photomultiplyer and the image showd up on a computer screen. The match stick was black while the green, glowing silhouette of the leaves was clearly visible."
Upon seeing this, "Dr. Popp exclaimed, 'We now know, today, that man is essentially a being of light.'"
Is this proof enough for you?
Tohoku Institute of Technology claims we glimmer.
After conducting a human photon emission experiment, Tohoku Institute of Technology claimed,
"The human body literally glimmers. The intensity of the light emitted by the body is 1000 times lower than the sensitivity of our naked eyes. Ultra-weak photon emission is known as the energy released as light through the changes in energy metabolism."
Cosic and Veljkovic claim we generate oceans of light.
Two respected scientists discovered the logic of a body's light resonance as they studied molecular interactions:
- Dr. Veljko Veljkovic,head of the Center for Multidisciplinary Research and Engineering, Institute of Nuclear Sciences in Vinca, Serbia, and
- Irena Cosic, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, who began as a graduate student of Veljkovic in Belgrade, Serbia, where she gained her Masters and Doctor of Philosophy degrees, before emigrating to Australia in 2002.
They combined forces and pursued answers to the question, What is it that enables living processes to recognize their necessary targets in an organism rife with tens of thousands of different molecules?
(In layman terms, how does a photon know which particular molecule to excite, in order to accomplish its intended task? In familiar, visual terms, how does a tiny sperm know which is and where to find its awaiting egg?)
The theory of interlocking pieces that fit together like a puzzle had been disproved time and again.
Veljkovic and Cosic concluded, "There are about 100,000 chemical reactions happening in every cell each second. The chemical reaction can only happen if the molecule which is reacting is excited by a photon..."
But how did the photon find its counterpart (molecule)?
The pair of scientists suggested that molecular interactions were electrical in nature. Later, Cosic introduced the idea of "dynamic electromagnetic field interactions". She said, "molecules recognize their particular targets and vice versa by electromagnetic resonance."
"We are swimming in an ocean of light", Veljkovic and Cosic concluded.

Exciting this molecule (I Am).
This is incredible stuff, difficult to absorb for a lay person.
Bioinformatics aside, does this have anything to do with the spiritual concept of a Light Body?
Kate Spreckley of spiritlibrary believes, "...part of our evolutionary process involves building and integrating our Light Body into our Human form."
But if DNA already emits light, haven't human beings accomplished this task? Or am I comparing apples to oranges?
Is Enlightenment something different?
Kate Spreckley suggests, "...it is only through the love of self that we are able to pull light into our physical bodies, thereby activating, building and integrating our Light Body into our physical beings."
Considering what has been revealed above, Spreckley's statement rings false. Our body already consists of constant electromagnetic interactions that produce light. Therefore, we are already bodies of light, scientifically speaking.
But Spreckley is not referring to chemical reactions already present within the body. She is speaking of a conscious, spiritual transformation commonly called enlightenment.
She is also not referring to the intellectual Enlightenment movement in Europe that broke with tradition around 1650, infusing reason and individualism into political, religious, and educational doctrine.
Spreckley is referring to transfiguration:
"Call them angels and archangels (Judaism, Christianity and Islam), call them devas (Hinduism and Buddhism), call them ascended masters in their solar bodies (mystery schools), call them cloudwalkers or Immortals (Taoism), call them those who have attained the resurrection body and the company of saints (Christianity) -- these beings present themselves to us in ways which appeal to our deepest nature and which urge us to externalize that nature in every aspect of our being, including relationships and social organization. They are a transcendent society, an order which exists beyond, but alongside, our own," explains John White.
When our bodies become light, White says, our "... vehicle of consciousness is no longer carbon-based as is biological flesh. Rather, it is composed of a finer, more ethereal form of energy-substance unknown to conventional physics, but long known to metaphysics and higher mysticism. That condition is, for the individual, the most exalted stage of higher human development; for humanity in general, it is the final stage of evolution."
Do you know an enlightened person?
Perhaps this suggests a new scientific study.
I wonder whether enlightened subjects selected to repeat the Japanese study would transmit light differently? Whether any of the scientists listed here could pinpoint a difference?
If enlightened, would the Dalai Lama or Pope Francis or some other highly evolved person generate unique results? What of those like Spreckley, who transmit messages from Archangel Michael and others?
Am I a Doubting Thomas? Or simply a curious cat in her ninth or tenth or even twelfth life?
