... Aura's anyone??

(my bold emphasis below)

------

The human body literally glows, emitting a visible light in extremely small quantities at levels that rise and fall with the day, scientists now reveal.


Past research has shown that the body emits visible light, 1,000 times less intense than the levels to which our naked eyes are sensitive. In fact, virtually all living creatures emit very weak light, which is thought to be a byproduct of biochemical reactions involving free radicals.


(This visible light differs from the infrared radiation — an invisible form of light — that comes from body heat.)


To learn more about this faint visible light, scientists in Japan employed extraordinarily sensitive cameras capable of detecting single photons. Five healthy male volunteers in their 20s were placed bare-chested in front of the cameras in complete darkness in light-tight rooms for 20 minutes every three hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. for three days.


The researchers found the body glow rose and fell over the day, with its lowest point at 10 a.m. and its peak at 4 p.m., dropping gradually after that. These findings suggest there is light emission linked to our body clocks, most likely due to how our metabolic rhythms fluctuate over the course of the day.


Faces glowed more than the rest of the body. This might be because faces are more tanned than the rest of the body, since they get more exposure to sunlight — the pigment behind skin color, melanin, has fluorescent components that could enhance the body's miniscule light production.

Since this faint light is linked with the body's metabolism, this finding suggests cameras that can spot the weak emissions could help spot medical conditions, said researcher Hitoshi Okamura, a circadian biologist at Kyoto University in Japan.


"If you can see the glimmer from the body's surface, you could see the whole body condition," said researcher Masaki Kobayashi, a biomedical photonics specialist at the Tohoku Institute of Technology in Sendai, Japan.


The scientists detailed their findings online July 16 in the journal PLoS ONE.

Not heard this in this way before but I know that cells apparently communicate to each other using what they presume is UV light (this was thought to be UV in the studies I read because it wouldnt pass through quartz or something) when they die, not sure if they communicate other things using light.

Not sure what its got to do with your article but it reminded me of it!

Well I thought this was interesting when I read it .. as it tantalisingly hints at what Aura readers have been saying all these times .. all it takes now is the other half of the equation - being able to train ourselves to perceive low light levels and bingo, we can see an "aura" ..

not necassarily Jay....the 'aura' is described as being far more complex and 'larger'than just this from what I gather, although it does seem to be leading the way for that type of thing.

Whilst I can see at what your saying I wouldnt say this does anything more than 'hint' at the possibility, however tantilisingly that is!

Yes, but its a step on the path .. I don't see really see aura's .. so I don't know fully what someone who does see them, see's or doesn't see .. but what it says is that not only do we give off heat, but now light too .. what other energy do we give off that can be percieved in someways by someone?

we are constantly giving thing off which our 'environment' reacts too, yet we are not conciously aware of.
Again I'm harping back to animals but they give us good indications of this.

We are constantly sending, interpreting and recieving information non verbally.....

To me its fuckin obvious, I dont get why other people need to wait for it to be officially 'crowned' by science to accept this type of stuff.
If people took the time to listen with more than their ears, look with more than thier eyes etc and feel with more than their 'hands' they'd realise this for themselves.

Still not convinced this specif thing is the 'aura' though......although it will be related as how could it not be, our non 3-d solid things, including our 'energies fields' and 'thoughts' are as much a part of us as our 'hands and heads' etc, all this seperation of it gets right on my fuckin tits!

Yeah, I'm not saying it IS the aura specifically .. there could be just too little light given off .. but that it can be used to add weight to the pro-aura argument ..

As for waiting for science to say this stuff .. bah .. I'll end up on my same old rant .. society conditioned us to look outside for answers .. dependent upon others .. blah blah .. instead of us trusting ourselves and what we experience ..

People NEED to be told by an expert what to believe .. even if they were so anti the idea previously .. when the expert tells them its true then they "knew it all along" and forget their stance against the idea when the "experts" were quiet on it before.

I ge you there....only reason I'm being arsey is that the 'pro auras' will probably jump on this nd it could turn out to work against 'the aura' if that makes sense.......
Whilst I htink there is a lot of shit surrounding auras I also think there is a lot of 'good' in it too.....so am a bit fussy at tiems bout it etc.
Not aura in the sense of how its generally portrayed but it makes perfect sense ot me that we extend 'physically' further than is generally accepted.........and this does consist of properties and stuff and we are aware of it although maybe not conciously. To me the fact how we are '3-d solid', when you start delving into physiscs is more of the mystery!!!

And with u as usual yawn boooo on the other stuff...........
