"Let there be light.." Photons and their effects

Flowing light. Artist: Albrecht E. Arnold /pixelio.de

One of the best-known particles/waves in quantum mechanics are most probably the photons. They transmit all electromagnetic forces, so you could say, brightness, warmth, magnetic fields etc.  are all kinds of light at the end of the day. Photons however, are far more than that. Photons are the only particles that can be found absolutely everywhere. They carry the forces of life, for life can not exist without them. There might be places on Earth, where you don't find enough of them, so they can be detected as visible light, yet they are there, and be it only in form of Earth magnetism.

Light is in the eye of the observer

You surely know, that the eye is capable of proceeding photons. But did you know, that eyes emit them aswell? They actually do. This was proved and measured several times all over the world. Some scientists believe, that the amount of the emitted photons cause the effect we sometimes even physically feel, when someone looks at us. Some go even further by stating, that the act of seeing is some sort of photonic interaction, and not just a "one way road".  Also it was proved, that we emit photons with our thoughts. Yes, you have read correctly. The clearer, the more concentrated our thoughts are, the more light particles we do emit. The highest rate was measured at probands while praying or meditating. So the aureole you see on pictures of saints or gods might not be just a means of art to show that this person is extraordinary.

Barriers might vanish

There is a deep gap between science and the mysteries. Well, at least this gap is still there, yet quantum mechanics rattle furiously on it. Maybe the line to be drawn between the natural and the supernatural will blur in the next years. We know already, that photons can be teleported. We also know, that they can carry information. So, what exactly is telepathy then? Some supernatural hocus-pocus or just a natural phenomenon of quantum teleportation, with a "receiver" who has the sensitivity and the "code" to decipher the information, that was sent?

We also know, that photons carry, well, cause to be exact, energetical phenomenons. Some of you might know about Einstein's photoelectric effect that, in simple words describes the fact, that a certain amount of photons hitting an atom are able to "kick off" an electron, so that energy flows. We use this effect in producing electricity with solar panels, for example. But how about mental healing techniques then? Could this be a question of faith or the biological version of this effect, caused by a trained neurological system?

What you see is what you get

This is true in several ways of understanding. We still live in a phenomenal time. This means we tend to think, that what can be seen or at least be described, has to be true. If something cannot be seen or described, it consequently is not true. Well, is that true? I personally afraid, the answer has to be no. This "No" gets louder and louder, the more we learn to understand the quantum level of what we are used to call "reality". Even our concept of time most probably will have to change again. It was a great issue, when Einstein stated that time is not objective. Nowadays however, time as a whole is heavily doubted by some scientists. It might be nothing but another quantum phenomenon, as it is stated in the supergravity theories for example.

Reality is everything, we take for real. Yes, you are right in getting nervous on the idea, that even reality consequently is not objective. It is the result of our personal interaction with the Universe and the view we take at it. Photons might be the masterkey in causing realities by transmitting information into both directions. Some very poetic mysteries of creation state, that a devine entity drew Universe with light...quantum mechanics might show in the near future, that there might be far more to this idea than just a majestic idea.
