Quantum mechanic communication in cells: A paradigm shift in biology
Weak emission of light from cells in a living organism was discovered by the Russian embryologist Alexander Gurwitsch in 1926 in dividing onion cells microscopically. He observed different numbers of mitotic cells in onion roots which were separated by glass, compared to those separated by quartz. Based on these differences, he postulated that living organisms communicate via UV-light exchange
This concept was corroborated by the Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger, who obtained the Nobel Prize in physics in 1933. This physicist is actually considered as the originator of quantum theory. Schrödinger proposed that in living cells the high level of organization can only be maintained because the cellular system perpetually obtains order from the environment. According to Schrödinger sunlight provides this miraculous order
In a research center in 1936, Professor Burr and Dr. Meader stated that wherever there is life, electrical phenomena would also be found.
Light does not need molecules as transmission medium. Cells can use various frequencies for information transfer.
In the seventies of the last century, the German researcher Fritz Albert Popp, a Nobel Prize nominee in Physics, established the term biophoton. The existence of biophotons is now largely accepted by the scientific community.
Photons even mediate long-range quantum entanglement in the brain. ( We come to that a littlebit later )
The results of the present study provide evidence of the existence of communication between neuroblastoma cells, physically separated in such a way as to inhibit any exchange of chemical signals through a solid or liquid medium. Our purpose was to apply the novel biosensor set-up in order to investigate the possible existence of non-chemical, non-electrical communication between neural cells. We feel that the observed results support the assumption of the existence of distant communication between physically separated human neuroblastoma cells. It can be assumed that the observations in our experiments may be partly of electric or electromagnetic origin.
It can be assumed that the observed NCDCI in our experiments may be partly of electric or electromagnetic origin.
Each human cell may comprise an incredibly complex quantum system (quantum communication, teleportation, entanglement of quantum mechanics) as source of data transfer both within each cell and among other cells. Very fast signaling passes information from DNA ( through biophotons, we come to that later) that controls all metabolic components in a single cell as well as to all other cells in the body. Chemical signaling takes milliseconds to seconds. Ultra-weak light photons may communicate intracellular and extracellular data through DNA at the speed of light or greater.
Cells can communicate with each other and interact with the inanimate environment via many mechanisms and at many levels, depending on the type and complexity of the biological system and the nature of the information being communicated. Most known mechanisms of cell-to-cell communication involve chemical or electrical signaling. In contrast, our understanding of non-chemical, nonelectrical forms of communication is still at the beginning.
Cells “talk” to other cells with incredible precision and accuracy to maintain synchrony, unity of purpose, and health.
Data communication of unbelievable complexity occurs within each cell millions of times a second and among nearby cells and cells at a distance. The speed of communication may be of light for biophotons or faster or even instantaneous for quantum transfer. Some intracellular and intercellular communication should occur at the speed of light in order to make the organization of living processes possible. Biophotons could offer that supplementary signaling pathway next to electrical and chemical pathways for intra-and intercellular communication
Electromagnetic fields are an integral part of biological systems and are thus part of purposeful processes. Generated biological electromagnetic fields permit very efficient energy and information transfer via the spatial and dynamic formation of interference patterns.
Quantum entanglement refers to the states of two or more particles being interdependent, regardless of the distance separating them. It’s one of many counterintuitive features of the subatomic landscape, in which particles such as electrons and photons behave as both particles and waves simultaneously, occupy multiple positions and states at once, and traverse apparently impermeable barriers. Processes at this scale are captured in the complex mathematical language of quantum mechanics, and frequently produce effects that appear to defy common sense.
The science paper: Photon Entanglement Through Brain Tissue reported in 2016: We have measured the preservation of entanglement as one photon of a pair passed through different types of tissue slices from rat: brain cortex, brain stem, and kidney. Figure 1 shows a typical experiment result of the real component of the density matrix of the light in rat brain cortex tissue with a thickness of 400 μm. As can be seen the measured matrix agrees quite well with expectations. From the tomographic measurements of each sample we obtained various entanglement measures, such as fidelity linear entropy and tangle.
This study is the first investigation of correlation between entangled photons after propagation through rat brain tissue. It was demonstrated that the photon entanglement in polarization was preserved among brain tissue slices with different thickness. The brain tissue with various thickness shows a strong entanglement – high T and low S in comparison to kidney tissue and aged tissues. This can be attributed to the unique structure of neuro network to channel the photon polarization and coherence in electromagnetic modes and quantum transfer pathways. The photon entanglement suggests quantum mechanics may be in operation of eigen pathways for photons’ passage through the brain’s special structure of neurons and axons.
A more recent paper from last year confirmed the experiment from 2016: Light transmission of Majorana photon vortex beams with orbital angular momentum are investigated in a mouse brain at different local regions showing enhanced transmission and properties of being entangled.
That means that information in the brain might be able to be transmitted instantaneously without timelapse. Think about that. That is truly amazing and awe-inspiring. But open questions remain. Are biophotons just a byproduct of normal biological activity, or used in fact for cellular communication? That was already asked in the book biophotons, in 1998. The author wrote:
It remains a matter of strong controversies, whether the ultraweak photon emission is a mere “metabolic noise”, produced in near-equilibrium conditions by some by-products of the oxidative reactions, only slightly correlated with each other and the main biological functions Some of the discovered UWPE events (and most of all the so-called degradational radiation) pointed to the existence of molecular photonic stores far removed from thermodynamic equilibrium (“nonequilibrial molecular constellations”,
Ultra-weak photon emission (UPE) is the spontaneous emission from living systems mainly attributed to oxidation reactions, in which reactive oxygen species (ROS) may play a major role. The relationship between ultra-weak photon emission UPE and cell communication is particularly interesting since it has been demonstrated that cells use photons as information carriers.
Studies confirm physical long-range cell-cell communication, most evidently based on electromagnetic fields.
Some researchers proposed that the brain would the ideal place for photonic communication to take place. Indeed hollow microtubules with constant inner diameter in the dark of human scalp could perfectly act as optical fibers for biophoton transmission within brain nerve cells
The externally detected proportion of biophotons, compared to those that must be generated inside cells is small, and great part of the biophotons can travel through neuronal microtubules, which are waveguiding capable specific structures. and myelin sheath of axons, and protein to protein communication.
So the next question arises: How would that information first be generated, and stored, and provide informational cues, and signals that direct biological behavior? Remarkably, there is evidence that
Current studies have shown that glutamate can induce neural biophotonic activity and transmission, which may involve the mechanism of photon quantum brain.
Experimental studies have shown that statistical ordering (coherence) of Ultralow Photon Emissions (UPE) plays an important role in communication between biological systems. This is in my view awe-inspiring and an extraordinary finding.
Biosystem interaction has been reported at the level of plants, and primitive biosystems such as insects and other biosystems. Synchronization of flashes of fireflies and dinoflagellates have been observed when cultures were connected optically. So, electromagnetic bio-communication plays an important role in the interactions of whole organisms.
The behavior of insects such as termites is dependent on mutual electromagnetic field interactions during gallery building.
There is a considerable list of science papers investigating electromagnetic distant interactions of biosystems. There is a large number of experimental reports (over 400 papers published from 1920s onward) which describes signaling between chemically separated cell cultures proposed to be mediated by light or other electromagnetic radiation.
The biophoton emission intensity is generally 3–6 orders lower than the light intensity that is visible to the naked eye, but the wavelengths of emissions normally extend over the entire visible wavelength.
If cells are communicating with each other using electromagnetic fields, then how can cells avoid environmental electromagnetic fields that are much stronger than the weak electromagnetic fields generated by other biosystems? A very interesting fact is that the wide spectrum of UV light between the 230 and 280-nanometer range (UV-C) e is almost completely absorbed by the ozone layer. In fact, the intensity of photons in this spectrum of extraterrestrial origin drops in the passage through the atmosphere. The remaining range is an excellent candidate for cellular communication on Earth. Electromagnetic field signals can be modulated by cell components based on cell conditions.
Ultraweak photon emission signal rates emitted from cells are reminiscent of a binary data exchange via optical channels. Photon energy can reversibly convert into an exciton which is the bound state of an electron-hole which can propagate along with molecules in biosystems. And the pulses of photons enable synchronization among cells.
A pertinent question is of course, how exactly are these electromagnetic fields generated. The science paper: Wireless Communication in Biosystems gives the answer: The authors write: Electrical signals play the primary role in rapid communication among organs, tissues, and cells in biosystems. In biosystems the electrical signals are mainly soliton-like electromagnetic pulses, which are generated by transient transmembrane ion currents through protein ion-channels. An incredible wireless communication mechanism exists in biosystems.
The spatial and temporal coherent action of transmembrane ion channel currents simultaneously produces electric and magnetic fields that dominate all other field sources. Ion channels, as tiny current filaments, express, at a distance, the electric and magnetic fields akin to those of a short transmembrane copper wire.
Ion channel activity pictured above in (a), highlighted in (c), produces electric and magnetic fields. . Ion motion synchronized in position, direction, and time produce coherent currents. The resultant ¯eld system will dominate all other charge positions/motions. It is obvious how a plaque of hundreds of physically adjacent ion channels, all conducting ions at the same time implements exactly this very coherence. The key to understanding the dominant mechanism responsible for the dynamic component of both the electric and magneticfields is spatiotemporal coherence.
Ion motion synchronized in position, direction, and time produces coherent currents. The resultant field system will dominate all other charge positions/motions. Hundreds of physically adjacent ion channels, all conducting ions at the same time implement exactly this very coherence. In the figure, we see in (a) a huge static electric field localized in the membrane. In (b) Ion channels cause pulsing/reversing dipoles that express electric and magnetic fields over large distances. And in (c) Persistent activity causes spatially large localized polarization effects that are reset over a longer time frame. The extracellular space (pink) is shown greatly exaggerated.
The plasma membrane of the cell contains a high density of ion-channels that, in a collective action, can produce a major migration of charged ions, a phenomenon that may induce local magnetic forces
Life requires the involvement of a huge amount of atoms and molecules working in synchronization. Synchronized cell firings in a confined region may have an intricate complex interplay of electromagnetic field coupling that is unexplored at this stage.
For instance, a single cell consists of a few hundred trillion atoms, and an organ is often built up with millions and billions of cells. The increasing number of involving atoms, molecules, cell organelles, and cells may greatly enhance the capability of a life system to accomplish complex functionalities and behaviors, however, as a tradeoff, it also greatly increases the difficulty in communication among the vast unites, as well as in the organization of the whole system. Molecules carrying chemical information, such as hormones, move slowly in the liquid environment of a living system. Therefore, for fast activities such as the motion of a body, electrical signals are usually the only choices for message carriers.
Biophotons”, have been detected in bacteria, plants, animal cells, even in the nerve systems of human beings, and play an important role in electrical communication of biosystems.
What is the command and control center for all this amazing complexity? It must be ultra-stable, interactive, and fast. Fundamental biological processes that involve the conversion of energy in forms that are useable within the cell, such as light, are quantum mechanical in nature. Quantum effects are counterintuitive but solve the issue of fast communication within a cell and to all cells in the body. How can cells communicate with each other at a fast enough speed to explain the biological observations? Cells talk to each other giving precise information to carry out specific functions. This signaling system is like a language.
Biosystems use soft material waveguide networks and utilize soliton-like electromagnetic pulses in these extremely fast and synchronized activities. Electrons, photons, solitons represent electromagnetically oscillations that travel along proteins, microtubules and DNA. Bio-solitons are conceived as self-reinforcing solitary waves, which are local fields, being involved in intracellular geometric ordering and patterning, as well as in intra- and extracellular signaling.
All living beings give rise to biophotons which are also called solitons. These light emissions are extremely weak and hence cannot be observed by the naked eye. Detections of biophotons need special photon counters which are sensitive to pick up even a single photon in the environment.
Solitons or solitary waves are a self-reinforcing wave packet that maintains its shape while they propagate at a constant velocity. Solitons are seen as localized, non-dispersive excitations. Ion-channels in membranes induces electromagnetic pulses universally and exist in biosystems at many levels, from the whole body level such as an electric eel, to sub-cell level such as cell organelles. For the generation of the electromagnetic pulses, they need a local gradient in transmembrane ion concentration and ion channels.
During transmission solitons do not carry elementary particles, but information itself contained in conformation change. This electromagnetic resource provides the mechanism for the non-locality, complexity, and self-consistency (self-maintaining) of biological organisms and ecosystems.
Biophotons are employed in biology in various ways. The proposed scenario reported here suggests light as an important factor for human neurons in terms of biophotons and their utilization in cognitive processes and possibly playing a crucial role in consciousness.
Biophotons have been proposed to act as an organizing principle in the process of protein folding. Proteins are first synthesized as a linear molecule that subsequently must reach its native configuration in a short time on the order of seconds or less. Solitons have been proposed to act as an organizing principle in the process of protein folding
Proteins can only perform their functions, often only in a single folding configuration. The number of possible conformational states is exponentially large for a long protein molecule. Despite the almost 30 years of attempts to resolve this paradox, a definite solution has not been found.
A random search can only be performed in an unrealistic timeframe of billions of years. Scientists have not been able to explain how the domain “knows” that it reached the correct state. Of course, a intelligent design theorist can propose an intelligent designer, which has foresight and knows the structure required for a specific goal. Thus two major questions remain: what are the actual folding mechanisms and how can this ultra-rapid process be realized?
Soliton excitations, according to abundant literature, lead to coherent vibrational domains in cells that also can take the form of wave/particles.
The number of protein conformations is far more limited than the number of different amino acid combinations. The common secondary structural motifs that describe loops connecting alpha helices and/or beta strands can be interpreted as topological solitons, with the alpha helices and beta sheets viewed as ground states that are interpolated by the loops as solitons. We can describe folded proteins in terms of its solitons within experimental accuracy.
It might be that solitons are generated in locations of preferable alpha-amino-acids sequences, while their propagation might be blocked on different sequences. Therefore, the sequence may not only dictate the final conformation, but also the dynamics of the conformational transitions
In another interesting scientific field, recently biophysicists demonstrated the vibrating behavior of the Junk-DNA as the major source of biophoton ultra-weak light emissions.
Degree of coiling is proportional to the degree of biophotonic activity; the more unfolded (separated strands) the more emission, indicating the release of photons from the gene-sequence; (DNA as the storage site for photons); indeed, excitation energy is handed over from one base-pair to the next along each DNA-strand
What is it that enabled the tens of thousands of different kinds of molecules in the organism to recognize their specific targets? Living processes depend on selective interactions between particular molecules, and that is true for basic metabolism to the subtlest nuances of emotion. It’s like trying to find a friend in a very big very crowded ballroom in the dark. It is supposed to explain how enzymes can recognize their respective substrates, how
antibodies in the immune system can grab onto specific foreign invaders and disarm them. By extension, that’s how proteins can ‘dock’ with different partner proteins, or latch onto specific nucleic acids to control gene expression, or assemble into ribosomes for translating proteins, or other multi-molecular complexes that modify the genetic messages in various ways. But with thousands — or even hundreds of thousands of reactions happening each second in just one cell this seems pushing the “mechanical” concept a bit too far. What has been proposed is that somehow each molecule sends out a unique electromagnetic field that can “sense” the field of the complimentary molecule. It’s as if there is a “dance” in the cellular medium and the molecules move to the rythm. The music is supplied by the biophoton.
Molecules recognize their particular targets and vice versa by electromagnetic resonance. In other words, the molecules send out specific frequencies of electromagnetic waves which not only enable them to ‘see’ and ‘hear’ each other, and photon modes exist for electromagnetic waves, but also to influence each other at a distance and become drawn to each other if vibrating in a complementary way. Molecular resonance is extremely selective, to less than 0.01percent of the resonant frequency. That and the wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum makes molecular resonance the mechanism of choice for specific interactions.
More than 1000 proteins from over 30 functional groups have been analyzed. Remarkably, the results showed that proteins with the same biological function share a single frequency peak while there is no significant peak in common for proteins with different functions; furthermore, the characteristic peak frequency differs for different biological functions. The idea of molecules communicating and exchanging energy by electromagnetic resonance fits in with accumulating evidence that cells and organisms are aligned and working coherently together.
Following might be even more esoteric, and is not backed up by empirical science, but nonetheless noteworthy. Scientists also introduced the concept of quantum biohologram, promoting the idea that the nucleotide sequences in DNA are able to project a holographic image of biostructures
The intrinsic information that defines the living condition of organisms may be incredibly stored holographically. A holographic organization of memory even in single cells could be generated in the cell at several levels of the cell such as atoms, molecules including proteins, cellular water, microtubules and electromagnetic fields. The collective information may be projected in a holographic manner in a memory space from which every part of the cell is informed about the integrated hologram information of the particular tissue type. This information is considered to be non-local, a feature that in quantum physics is related to the phenomenon of entanglement. Discrete electromagnetic frequency patterns precisely fit earlier Einstein–Podolsky–Rosen paradox experimentations in which such electromagnetic radiation promotes states of quantum entanglement This kind of external magnetic domain could provide the opportunity for wave interference with EM fields in the environment, and could in a holographic manner build up a dedicated memory space for each cell, containing stored and updated life-information for cell survival. Such a cell-bound memory space could also be responsible for long-distance, non-local, communication between different cells. There is strong indication for an information domain beyond our local 3D-space time in which information of the destroyed photon is somehow stored. Thus material particles in general should be seen as excitations of an underlying non-material matrix, also producing quasi-particles such as solitons. A deeper (geometric) information domain was also implied in “Our Mathematical Universe” by Tegmark.
The recognition of resonant frequencies can lead to modulation of form and function of proteins and DNA. An integrated information processing center is required for an orchestrated effort to maintain cell viability and proper intercellular communication. It remains to be established whether a collective cellular memory workspace of the organism contributes to epigenetic organ- and total body-memory. In this sense such a holographic memory space, as described may, in certain special stages of tissue development and regeneration, supplement known transcriptional mechanisms and be instrumental in encoding distinct life information of non-neural nature. The electromagnetic fields that influence a wide spectrum of oscillating systems in nature, may therefore represent a generalized biophysical principle with a design signature that provides an interplay of electromagnetic waves that underlies life and the fabric of reality in general. All this points to a deeper layer of a harmonically guided by intelligent design.
Protein biosynthesis is a key, but not the only basic information function of chromosomes. There are other, no less important, holographic and quantum non-locality functions related to morphogenesis. In this plane, the work of the genome, as a quantum biocomputer, occurs on the wave level. Here the main function is regulatory quantum broadcasting of genetic-metabolic information on the intercellular, tissue and organism levels using a coherent photon DNA radiation and its nonlinear vibrational states (sound). DNA information presents itself in the form of dynamically polarized holograms as well as phantom DNA structures.
What are the implications of the facts exposed in this video for Intelligent Design theorists ? We see that biophotons, or solitons, are the edge of the highest performing technology for data transfer. Biodiversity and complex organismal architecture is explained by trillions of bits. Incredible amounts of data far beyond our imagination. Instructions, complex codified specifications, INFORMATION. Algorithms masterfully encoded in various genetic and sophisticated epigenetic languages and communication channels and networks. Life uses Neurotransmitters, nanotubes between cells, electrons, and most remarkably, as we are learning, solitons, or biophotons. Science is just at the beginning of having adequate technology to explore what play biophotons have, how and where they influence the making of organismal complexity , and body architecture, and where they are involved in control and biological operation of organisms. One thing is clear. Evolutionary mechanisms do by far not suffice to explain the origin of this kind of technological sophistication, which is as old as life. Since science is just starting to scratch at the surface to unravel the implications of light in biochemistry, we can expect that many awe inspiring findings will still be come to light.
