The Biofield: Measuring the Light Emitted from the Human Body During Ordinary and Extraordinary States
Presentation: The biofield is an organizing energy field of life within and around the body considered important for bioregulation and healing. Some components of the biofield can be scientifically measured. Other aspects of the biofield may exist on the metaphysical level and relate to the invisible higher order of our being, the biofield serving as a bridge between mind, body, and spirit. One component of the biofield is the extremely low-level light emitted from the body known as “biophotons.” Measuring the light associated with life is perhaps the closest we can come to a scientific understanding about the elusive qi, chi or ‘life force’.
