What is Light?

What is Light?

A question that although seemingly quite simple, in actuality is quite complex.  Of course there are the textbook definitions – the word “Light” meaning everything from “of comparatively little physical weight or density”, and “having a relatively small amount of coloring agent” to “unaccented: used of vowels or syllables; pronounced with little or no stress”.  But what is Light, “luminosity: the quality of being luminous; emitting or reflecting light;”?  The Light that brightens our world and graces our vision.
    Light has the very odd ability to be both a wave and a particle .  This confuses us right off the bat because the very act of observing light changes the way it behaves.  Instantly posing questions about what happens when there is no observer, such as in deep space.  We see light from far off Galaxies, thus proving that unlike sound, light can travel in a vacuum.  But does our observing this Great Trek across parsecs alter the behavior of the light itself?  If there were no-one watching would the light act the same?  And as we delve with our telescopes farther and farther into deep-space, do we change the light that we finally see?
But light has held such a deeper meaning for our world.  Light has always been one of the most important symbols.  Universally accepted as meaning truth, understanding, and Divinity.  Used by such diverse groups as The Brotherhood of Universal Love and The Illuminati.
According to modern Physics we can’t go the full speed of light.  It would take Infinite Velocity to move Infinite Mass- and that confuses all formula’s.  But perhaps “Light” is different for different Beings.  Our frail carbon based bodies may not travel as fast as light, but could beings who were more energy based or perhaps even wave based preform that task?
Humans encode and send information in light form.  Perhaps The Cosmic Astro-Biologist encoded all of the light in the whole Universe.  And as our science and technology become more “Green” and we begin to measure aspects of the consciousness in terms of Math, we may by our act of observation alter lights behavior and detect the ancient information encoded within the light.  Data collected and recorded at the moment of the Big Bang.
So light is a description, a wave, a particle, information, a symbol, luminosity, Truth, and so much more.

    Brilliantly written, bravo! You gave me lots to think about.
    I’m glad my question inspired you…

    You wrote: “humans encode and send information in light form”. Could you expand on this. You are onto something VERY important here – the real Language of Light.

    I think Light for me is the Product of Creation, it is the Life Energy that is sent in the Universal synapses…
    It is the product of two opposites merging! The creative in-between is the spark, and the Light is the Result?

    I read somewhere that there’s an ancient Indian theory that states: “rays of light are taken to be a stream of high velocity of tejas (fire) atoms”

    Perhaps many simultaneous sparks create Light?
    What if our Heart creates light too? 🙂

    Hope to discuss more, thank you,
