The discoveries of the BioPhoton [researchers from] Neuss are extremely significant not only for medicine, but have also proven useful for other areas of life.
For example with quality control of foods. Thus with eggs it can be clearly measured whether they originate from biological chickens or from a laying battery. The same is valid for fruit and vegetables. And even for genetically changed food! The standard for quality and freshness (aliveness) is thus not the number of transmitted photons, but rather the characteristic hyperbolic decay curve of the light emitted again after short irradiation. The technical term for this is delayed luminescence.
From extensive test series researchers all over the world came to the same result: “The more natural the meats, fruits or vegetables are, the flatter the curve. That is to say, the more slowly they give off the BioPhotons again”, explains their discoverer. In contrast to the costly chemical examinations this method of quality control requires only a few minutes – an advantage which is important for wide commercial use. At present particularly in Japan they have tried to work this out with suitable devices.
Where Does the Light Come From?
Although worldwide about 50 research groups with partly substantial financial and technical resources try to fathom the secret of BioPhotons in the meantime: however still no agreement prevails about the question of its origin. But nevertheless it seems clear that DNA plays an important role. Model calculations prove that the double helix consisting of approximately ten billion molecules is able to store and also again to deliver incident light through changes of its spatial structure. Nevertheless it concerns not just ‘normal’ light, but extremely coherent light – photons which swing (simply expressed) in a strictly regular identical rhythm. Since coherence is a characteristic of laser light, the DNA molecule in this case would represent an ultraweak laser. So the human being is therefore not seen as a star like Crowley thought, but rather as a pulsating light pump.
Additionally, as the Indian mathematician Raychaudhury proved, besides being able to modulate the light wave generated by it through its special geometry, the DNA is therefore able to impress information on them. At the same time it functions as an antenna, which constantly receives information from the BioPhoton field. (2)
Whether this field is also identical or at least partly identical with the human aura is at present still unsolved. If you assume that the phenomenon of electromagnetism is not really understood so far despite the Maxwell equations, enough area for the integration of esoteric or complementary models remains – even if the scientist Popp practices restraint in this direction. Thus as a first step the optical proof of the meridians took place in 2004 by means of a highly sensitive infrared camera (see Figure 2). It can be shown that it does not deal with ‘classical’ heat radiation as previously accepted, but rather with BioPhotons. (6) The meridians would therefore be light conductors.

range from 10°C to 450°C. (Details about the camera at www.flir.com) *
It would seem, the processes which we call life, at the lowest level are steered by a complicated highly regular information or regularization field at the BioPhoton basis whose information channels are known as ‘meridians’. Popp is certain that “without this field we would change in the shortest time into a kind of chemical porridge”. His colleague Hans-Peter Dürr, former director of the Werner-Heisenberg Institute in Munich agrees with him: “For me this radio traffic between the cells is plausible. Solely chemically, the logistics are barely explainable in an organism.”
Opponents and Refutations
Other researchers see it differently and consider in particular the coherence as not proven. Thus the Freiburg biophysicist Reiner Vogel suspects the origin of BioPhotons is in similarly well known chemical reactions, rather than in very strong bioluminescence. Fritz Schäfer from the Max Plank Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen admits that the ultraweak cell radiation is generally recognized in science, but regards Popp’s other theses as “clearly disproved”. (5)
Thus more distance between the coworkers of the BioPhoton Research Group (a kind of working community or study group of various institute groups and businesses) and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research was supported.
Nevertheless, their small distance from the painstakingly privately funded International Institute for Biophysics seems more politically-economically motivated than scientifically founded, because in the end their research subject matter is completely different in spite of identical names (see box).
