Lumokinesis is the psychical influence of the electromagnetic spectrum including visible light and part of the near-infrared range. Lumokinetic-based influence includes any form of electromagnetic radiation capable of causing a direct visual sensation directly within wavelengths of 380-950 nanometers whether wavelengths are pure or mixed [example: white, purple, violet, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, and near-infrared]. Light exists as tiny light “packets” called photons. Photons are quantized excitations of electrodynamic modes that are point-like quanta in which express wave-like and particle-like properties [wave-particle duality]. Photons move independently of one another, and are localized to light waves spread continuously over space. Lumokinetic influence includes the creation and modification of remote photic [light] sources and the influence of natural ultra-weak biophoton emissions, which can be utilized in light based therapeutic [healing] techniques.

Misconception and Myth

Optical Illusion

One of the most popular misconceptions regarding lumokinetic phenomena is in regards to optical illusion. Optical illusions in regards to lumokinetic phenomena are characterized by photic sources [light sources] that are visually perceived in which differ from objective reality. An optical illusion may suggest a photic source that does not exist objectively, but is only perceived subjectively. This can be caused by repetitive stimulation, which results in the subjective perception of influence regarding the brightness, movement, or color alternation of a photic source, which is not in line with objective reality. Common cognitive illusions include fictional illusions. This is the result of a hallucination, a perception in the absence of a photic stimulus. Photic-based hallucinations are not only common among non-experients of lumokinetic phenomena that focus for an extended period on a specific location in hopes of influencing a photic source. Photic-based hallucinations are also common among genuine experients of lumokinetic phenomena in which suffer from physical or mental stress, insomnia, and especially migraines, which are medical conditions often reported by these experients.

Measurement and Observation

Wavelength Alteration: Visible Light and Infrared

The wavelength of light is the spatial period of the wave, i.e. the distance over which the wave’s shape repeats. It is typically determined by considering the distance between consecutive corresponding points of the same phase [crests, troughs, or zero crossings]. Electromagnetic radiation is classified by wavelength into several types. It is hypothesized that experients adjust the wavelength rather than the frequency when altering light. Experients of lumokinetic phenomena appear more skilled in decreasing the wavelengths of light, rather than increasing, but both types of alternations appear possible. In exercises, experients alter infrared light by shortening its wavelength, whereby resulting in red visible light. When this happens, a red light source will appear due to modification, rather than creation. Because scientific meters used to measure the wavelength of light typically cost around a thousand to two thousand dollars, most experients trust their eyes to notice alterations in regards to color. An alternative option is for an experient to obtain a lux meter, which can be used to measure intensity at an affordable price. (Kelly, 2013)

Visible Light Therapy

Colored light therapy is an effective form of treatment for an array of psychological and physiological conditions interfaced with other healing modalities such as acupuncture, or as a standalone mode of treatment. The visible spectrum is the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible [detectable] by the human eye. The typical human eye will respond to light stimulus at wavelengths from about 390-750 nanometers and frequency bands near 400-790 terahertz. Colors utilized in experient-based colored light therapy are red, orange, yellow, green, blue [and indigo], and violet. Other less common colors include lemon, turquoise, purple, magenta, and scarlet. Conditions treatable via experient-based color therapy is diverse, but can include obesity, chronic fatigue, hypertension, asthma, chronic pain, headaches and migraines, depression, anxiety, liver and blood disorders, lupus, fibromyalgia, several types of cancer, and can regulate blood pressure and mood. White light is commonly utilized in experient-based light therapy, as white light is the effect of combining the visible colors of light in equal proportions. White light is also beneficial in the enhancement of lumokinetic-based influence as well as the color purple. (Kelly, 2013)

Constructive Interference

The lumokinetic-influence of increasing the brightness of an electrical light source, a commonly reported skill of experients of lumokinetic phenomena, is hypothesized to be the result of constructive interference, consider two light waves that are in phase, sharing the same frequency and with amplitudes A1 and A2. Their troughs and peaks are lined up and the resulting wave will have an amplitude of A = A1 + A2. This is known as constructive interference. In this type of exercise, experients have been directed to use a small light-emitting-diode [LED] as white light is less suited for producing clear interference, as it is a mixture of full spectrum colors. Experients may find more influencing success with one wavelength [color] over another, but this is not always the case, and this limitation can only be detected through the experimentation of each color in the spectrum; green is generally the color experients have the most success in influencing.

Symptoms and Side Effects

Biophoton Emission During Injury

A common side effect of injury and illness in regards to experients of lumokinetic phenomena is biophoton emission. Biophoton emission pertains to weak and ultra weak photon emission [weak electromagnetic radiation] from the body, typically the hands, due to a chemical reaction. While biophoton emission in the ultra weak range appears to be a normal human chemical reaction, experients of lumokinesis can consciously and subconsciously amplify the light emissions. When an experient is injured, the injured cells are put under higher amounts of oxidative stress of which is the source of the biophoton emission. Ultra weak biophoton emissions are only detectable via sensitive photomultiplier tubes and associated electronic equipment. On the other hand, experients often reach emissions of heightened amplification detectable via light meters designed to detect low light sources. (Kelly, 2013)
