Do we radiate external and/or internal Bodies of Light? If so, are we enlightened?

Updated on January 16, 2014

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:

  1. Dr. Veljko Veljkovic,head of the Center for Multidisciplinary Research and Engineering, Institute of Nuclear Sciences in Vinca, Serbia, and
  2. 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.

Location of these scientists claiming the existence of inner bodies of light...

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, " 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?

See results

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?

      I know of a person who is truly enlightened. He is a seemingly very normal person but when things get bad he remains calm. Others panic and he is the voice of true reason. He doesn't usually make mistakes but when he does he goes "Oh!" and corrects it from there. He doesn't go around bragging about how he can see "auras" but does understand what that really is. It has been misunderstood for centuries. It is actually just the electrical flow that surrounds the body. Its purpose is to maintain the body and keep it working properly. Is does have some influence from the spirt and when those electrical flows get interrupted body gets sick or experiences pain. Electrical shock "therapy" is a terrible thing and is highly not recommended as it will heavily disturb this electrical field. As well as the person himself and his mind. A truly enlightened person understands others even though others may be very hard and dfficult to understand.

      Now I am astonished, for I considered you a scientific sort of gentleman, quick with wit and clever scenes, but not in any way a mystic! I am delighted!!

      What color was your aura, when it was observed? I have only seen white or shadow auras over the heads of certain folk. Sometimes color in their form, perhaps... When I close my eyes or squint. I attributed it to needing glasses at an early age.

      Once again you astound me with your original observations, written so lovingly in the language we both love:

      "I love the notion that plants die slowly. I wonder if my mother is a plant, slowly losing her freshness, one memory at a time."

      I have never read into or studied the phenomena that constitute second sight, sightings and auras, as I have always, from a very small child, experienced these things and thought that everybody else did.

      The "strange", the "mystical" and the "unknown" only make us wonder and inquire, if they are unknown quantities. They were the "normal" things of my life... and sometimes are so, even still.

      Does it repel you like a tart green apple skin beads water, dear Twi?

      Or is it a separation like olive oil and balsamic vinegar, that might blend into a gastronomical delight.

      Perhaps it is more of a heavy breakfast after a hangover repel.

      I have heard it said that light repels the darkness but I have more often witnessed light penetrating the darkness.

      Or have I overstated your mind's unwillingness? Is it not repel but reject? Fear?

      I like that you do not immediately spring to an Aha Moment, but remain open to possibilities.

      I love the notion that plants die slowly. I wonder if my mother is a plant, slowly losing her freshness, one memory at a time.

      I think you hit the nail on the head when you asked if you were comparing apples with oranges.

      The piece of plant in the box and the matchstick were parts of plants and plants synthesise light. Of course they do, apart from mushrooms, which interestingly enough, tend to live in the dark, as most plants have chlorophyll which is used in photosynthesis (Synthesising with light). The matchstick, poor little chap, would have been dead, so he would emit no light, whereas the section of plant, if cut recently enough, would have life remaining in it. Plants, unlike most animals, do not die immediately they are dismembered, but die slowly. In other words, lose their freshness!

      Incidentally, I was told, by a Chinese lady, many years ago, that I had an “aura”. (Sorry if I forgot to ask what religion or philosophy she followed, although I can remember that she was particularly “mystical” or whatever).

      Maybe I was photosynthesising or just that I had soaked up a lot of vitamin D. I was living in Australia, where the modern-day sun worshippers tended to gather in great numbers to toast themselves. Mainly at the more fashionable North Cottesloe beach if they lived in the blessed sun soaked West.

      An interesting hub, duly credited with the correct INTERESTING and UP, but my mind doesn’t want to accept it... or maybe I’m not ready for it yet.
