Theoretical physicist David Bohm proposed a new hidden variables theory of
Quantum mechanics. He assumes the wave function does not represent just
a set of probabilities: it represents an actual field. This field
exists and acts upon particles the same way a classical potential does,
thus it is a quantum potential which is associated to this field and is a function of the wave function. It is postulated here that the quantum potential is active as a field in living cells and organisms and acts
The equation Bohm used to represent this quantum potential is given:
the quantum potential
U = -sum k(hbar 2/2mk) (partial k2 R / R ), (1)
reveals that Bohmian quantum potential is still used, but that it may
only represent a means to extend quantum theory into a realistic theory
of particles and fields.
It resolves the dilemma of the appearance,
in one and the same phenomenon, of both particle and wave properties in
a rather straightforward manner: Bohmian mechanics is a theory of
motion describing a particle (or particles) guided by a wave. This
guiding wave is usually attributed to atomic particles, but might be more insightfully seen as a traveling soliton or vortex.
Bohmian mechanics is manifestly nonlocal,
and the velocity may depend upon the positions of other, even distant
particles whenever the wave function of the system is entangled. The
behavior of the particle is determined by the particle’s position and
momentum, the wave field and the sub-quantum fluctuations.
“Bohm's quantum potential binds the entire universe together into what
he liked to call a seamless "unbroken
wholeness." Every particle in the universe is connected by the quantum
potential to every other particle. He likened the cosmos to a hologram
in which each point on the film carries information about the entire
picture. Bohm's GWT, far more sophisticated than de Broglie's crude
version, is a "holistic" vision in which all parts of the universe are joined to every other part.
"Interconnectedness" was one of Bohm's favorite words. He saw the
universe as resembling the unity of a
living organism, a kind of pantheism not unlike Spinoza's--a pantheism
Einstein himself favored.” (2)
Bohm referred the holomovement as the basic reality. The pattern formed on a photographic plate by light waves that interfere and create a hologram. This pattern is the interaction or interference pattern of two parts of a laser light (coherent light). One beam reflects off an object, the other off a mirror. In addition, any portion of the holographic plate contains information on the whole object.
Every cell in the human body contains nuclear DNA, information on the whole body, much like a hologram, only the cells can go through a process of division and reproduction (mitosis).
In quantum holography, things are spookier still. While holograms are typically constructed with interfering beams of light, in quantum holography the researchers measure the simultaneous arrivals of an illuminating photon that is sent into a chamber and a companion photon in the other entangled beam. (2)
Wave Genetics Inc. and the Moscow Institute of Control Sciences are exploring a new concept of the genetic code that asserts:
1) That the evolution of biosystems has created genetic "texts", similar to natural context dependent texts in human languages, shaping the text of these speech-like patterns.
2) That the chromosome apparatus acts
simultaneously both as a source and receiver of these genetic texts,
respectively decoding and encoding them, and
3) That the chromosome continuum of multicellular organisms is analogous to
a static-dynamical multiplex time-space holographic grating, which
comprises the space-time of an organism in a convoluted form.
That is to say, the DNA action theory
predicts and which experiment confirms, i) is that of a "gene-sign"
laser and its solitonic electro-acoustic fields, such that the
gene-biocomputer "reads and understands" these texts in a manner similar
to human thinking, but at its own genomic level of "reasoning". It
asserts that natural human texts (irrespectively of the language used),
and genetic "texts" have similar mathematical-linguistic and
entropic-statistic characteristics, where these concern the fractality
of the distribution of the character frequency density in the natural
and genetic texts, and where in case of genetic "texts", the characters
are identified with the nucleotides,
and ii) that DNA molecules, conceived as a
gene-sign continuum of any biosystem, are able to form holographic
pre-images of biostructures and of the organism as a whole as a registry
of dynamical "wave copies" or "matrixes”, succeeding each other. This
continuum is the measuring, calibrating field for constructing its
“Complex information can be encoded in EM fields, as we all know from coding and decoding of television and radio signals. Even more complex information can be encoded in holographic images. DNA acts as a holographic projector of acoustic and EM information which contains the informational quintessence of the biohologram. Only 3% of human DNA encodes the physical body. The remaining 97% of the 3 billion base pair genome contains over a million genetic structures called transposons, that have the capacity to jump from one chromosomal location to another (Kelleher, 1999).
We are 99.9% alike in our genetic legacy. Our individuality is expressed in three million small variations in our cells, called single nucleotide polymorphisms.
Gene-expression is the mechanism by which new patterns are called into being (Rossi, 2000). There is also a strong correlation between modulation of the brain’s EM field and consciousness (Persinger, 1987; McFadden, 2002). The Gariaev group has discovered a wave-based genome and DNA phantom effect which strongly supports the holographic concept of reality (Miller, Webb, Dickson, 1975). This main information channel of DNA is the same for both photons and radio waves. Superposed coherent waves of different types in the cells interact to form diffraction patterns, firstly in the acoustic domain, secondly in the electromagnetic domain -- a quantum hologram -- a translation process between acoustical and optical holograms.”(4)
The distribution of the character frequency in genetic texts is fractal, so
the nucleotides of DNA molecules are able to form holographic pre
images of biostructures. This process of "reading and writing" the very
matter of our being manifests from the genome's associative holographic
memory in conjunction with its quantum nonlocality. Rapid transmission
of genetic information and gene-expression unite the organism as
holistic entity embedded in the larger Whole. The system works as a
biocomputer -- a wave biocomputer.
The quantum nonlocality of the genetic
information is fundamental. Experimental work of the Gariaev group shows
how quantum nonlocality is directly related to laser radiation from
chromosomes (coherent light), which jitterbugs its polarization plane to
radiate or occlude photons. DNA and the genome have now been identified
as active "laser-like" environments. Roughly speaking, DNA can be
considered as a liquid crystal gel-like state that acts on the incoming
light in the manner of a solitonic lattice.” (5)
This entire section is extracted from the History of Biophotonics website:
Around 1923 Alexander Gurwitsch discovers an "ultraweak" photon emission from living systems (onions, yeast,...), since he suggested connections between
photon emission and cell division rate. He calls this photon emission
"mitogenetic radiation". His experiments indicate that the wavelength is
in the range around 260 nm (Bibliography under Gurwisch and also Ruth
(1977, 1979)). Around 1950: Russian
scientists rediscover "ultraweak photon emission" from living
organisms. Most results are published in "Biophysics" (engl.) and
originally in "Biofizika").( Bibliography under Ruth, 1979).
Italian nuclear physicists discover by
chance "bioluminescence" of seedlings. They do not think that this
finding is significant, but they publish the results. (Colli et al.
1954, 1955, Ruth 1979).
The Russian biophysicist and the American chemist enunciate the first theory of ultraweak photonemission (UWPE) from biological systems, the so called "imperfection" theory. UWPE shall be an expression of the deviation from equilibrium, some kind of distortion of metabolic processes (Zhuravlev 1972, Seliger 1975, Ruth 1979).
Independently from each other and by different motivations scientific groups in Australia (Quickenden), GermanyJapan (Inaba), and Poland (Slawinski) show evidence of ultraweak photon emission from biological systems by use of modern single-photon counting systems. Bibliography (Quickenden, Inaba, Popp &Ruth, Slawinski). While Quickenden, Slawinski and Inaba prefer the imperfection theory, Popp and his group enunciate just the opposite theory:
1. The radiation originates from an almost perfect coherent photon field.
2. Essential sources are the DNA and corresponding resonators in the cells.
3. The mechanism describes photon storage in cavities and information channels, tuned by Casimir forces.
4. There is a close connection to delayed luminescence which corresponds to excited states of the coherent photon field.
5. The radiation is not the product but
essentially the initiator of chemical reactions in the cells. The
radiation submits the information within and between cells.
6. The radiation is not limited to the
optical range but follows a f = const-rule (the occupation probability
of the phase space is equal for all wavelengths) and extends to longer
wavelengths including the so-called heat radiation of the body.
7. This radiation is the proper regulator and information carrier of life.
The Marburg group of Fritz-Albert Popp calls this phenomenon "biophotons" in order to stress the difference to "bioluminescence": Biophotons are single quanta which are permanently and continuously emitted by all living systems. They are subjects of quantum physics and they display an universal phenomenon attributed to all living systems. Worldwide all scientists who agree with these statements call the radiation biophotons and the scientific field "biophotonics".
From 1972 to 1980 the Marburg group of the leader, the physicist and Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp, evaluated experimentally all the essential physical properties of biophotons.
1. The intensity ranges from a few up to some hundreds photons/(s cm2).
2. The spectral distribution follows in the time average a f = const-rule.
3. The modes are strongly coupled.
4. The delayed luminescence that
approaches continuously the biophoton emission follows a hyperbolic
rather than an exponential relaxation function.
5. The biophotons originate from an almost fully coherent field.
6. Cells are able to establish cavity resonators which contribute to biophoton regulation.
7. The essential source of non-equilibrium biophoton emission is the DNA.
This group introduces the first time photocount statistics (PCS) into biophotonics. They show evidence that biophotons are emitted according to a Poissonian PCS. Furthermore they show evidence
(1) that the delayed luminescence follows a hyperbolic relaxation function rather than an exponential one,
(2) that the modes are strongly coupled, and
(3) that there are hyperbolic oscillations around the continuous hyperbolic relaxation function. The group finds the first time intercellular communication by means of biophotons. Later this was confirmed by Albrecht-Bühler (Bacteria), Popp and Chang (dinoflagellates), Galle (daphnia), Shen (blood), Vogel (bacteria)….
This term “bioinfoton” is one I am adopting
to specify any particle (such as the Ganesh Particle*), wave, or
biomolecule that transfers information from an emitter to a receptor. It
is possible that if a biophoton is emitted from a coherent source that
it will carry holographic information as a form of modulation (possibly
frequency modulated) and produce action or results in biological
It is possible that biophotons may even be carriers of psi information and that a coherent coupling can be established between two conscious life forms resulting in a transference of information from a higher potential field to a field at lower potential. Even though this is conjecture at this point, it suggests other means by which disparate life forms can communicate. We know there is a process by which trees communicate and even signal each other in the face of danger. We may be exchanging information with pets and other animals through biophotonic communication. This may be how some people who have a green thumb affect plants they care for.
Even communication with other intelligent life forms in the Cosmos may be effected by the amplification and vectoring of biophotons or via the quantum potential, produce information at a distance.
A virtual photon flux in the quantum potential may be integrating the coordinated wholeness of the organism while the action of bioinfotons may keep every part of the organism in communication with every other part.
Life and living organisms are more than the sum
of their parts and are composed of material and non-material parts. The
spiral form of DNA evidently produces an electromagnetic wave field
that informs the organism’s growth and structure.
Scientist Richard Alan Miller is a pioneer in this field and has written,
“In a hologram, wave fields interfere with
one another to lay the foundations for the reconstruction of the image
of an object. But how are the wave fields produced? The term
"holography" comes from the Greek roots
meaning "entire" and "to write". In holography, the image is projected
by a coherent light source split into both the object wave and the
reference wave background. This dichotomous nature is reflected in the
particle/wave nature of the DNA molecule, which can be "read out" with
biophotons from chromosomes to set up a holographically produced wave
This superposition of wave fields (object wave and reference wave) creates a wave guide for the formation of biological structure. The image is constructed according to the reference information contained in the genes. The reconstructed object wave is identical with the object wave field. The reconstructed wave fields reproduce exactly the recorded ones (the DNA with genetic code). “(7)
Mr. Miller also proposes this hypothesis:
Hypothesis: The organization of any biological system is established by
complex electro dynamical field that is,
in part, determined by its atomic physiochemical components. These, in
part, determine the behavior and
orientation of these components. This dynamic is mediated through
wave-based genomes wherein DNA functions as the holographic projector of the psychophysical system—a quantum biohologram.

What Are Biophotons?
Background Of Biophotons
It is now known that our DNA is a body of Light (bio-photons). This turns the purely biochemical understanding of DNA on its head and revolutionizes our concept of how DNA actually works. Instead of the purely static and inert biochemical structure of Watson and Crick, DNA is “…rich in movement. It vibrates, ‘breathes’, and emits”. The light energy that DNA emits is coherent, meaning that on the quantum / subatomic level there is cooperation and balance. It is from these coherent light / bio-photon and electromagnetic emissions of many different frequencies, that the directions to carry out all cellular processes within an organism and communication between organisms and quantum particles are correctly and effectively performed. In other words, it is the light / energy / electromagnetic field of each of our several trillion cells that is responsible for the action of all stem cells of the body and biochemicals – metabolic enzymes, proteins, hormones, etc. – and the function of every organ and system in the body. Subatomic quantum particles work in cooperation and synergy creating electromagnetic field to direct the millions of instantaneous processes of the body and mind on all the levels of being every second of every day that we exist. We can clearly see that we are energy. Because of our electromagnetic field we will always interact with any other energy – whether good or bad – that we are exposed to.
What is above is identical to what is below. The correlation between the physical and the energy is expressed in Einstein’s equation for relativity of matter and energy, E=mc2
Act of observing nano sub-quantum particles results in the particles changing state. They change from a particle to a wave, or a wave to a particle, making frequency stronger, more complex and vibrant. Evolution comes from the Experience of change of State of Being.
An example of thinking of our Mental Self as a physical and informational frequency of our Light Body, which is an informational wave. One end in the infinitude of this Light Body is the Magnet, the same as the other end. When you find and observe the ends of the wave and identify them, the wave “collapses” clearing the energy field. That act directly effects the state of well being in the Infinite Field of Information, which is a Light Body of All There Is.
