Like all living things, humans are bio­luminescent (meaning we glow) – We glow brightest during the afternoon. - weird, interesting & funny facts

what

i’ve been staring at this for like 5 minutes. so.. what. i don’t think people glow. but this is telling me that we actually emit visible light.. especially in the afternoon?? am i reading this right or what

"all living things" plants. when do the plants glow

science side of tumblr pls

I’m not from the science side of tumblr, but here’s the answer anyways:
 Basically, all living things are bioluminescent because every living thing has chemical reactions occurring in their cells. The energy created from these chemical reactions physically manifests as light, thus… all living things naturally glow.
 However, this glow cannot be seen by the human eye. In fact, the only way they’ve ever captured this light is through special cameras. Using these ultra special cameras, they’ve imaged subjects’ bodies over 24 hour periods. It has been found out that humans emit the most of this glow during the afternoon (about 4 PM), it is the weakest in the morning (about 10 AM), and the brightest light is emitted from the cheeks, neck, and forehead.
The light is about a thousand times weaker than what humans can perceive.
 Basically, it’s a side effect of metabolic reactions. It’s been suspected that humans are bioluminescent for years, but they weren’t able to confirm it until recently thanks to technology and a man named Masaki Kobayashi from the Tohoku Institute of Technology.

Sir James deans, Science and music; 1937

"In the first place, the sound starts out as before in all directions, but some of it strikes the ground almost immediately. Waves of sound are subject to the same laws as other waves, so that when they strike the ground some of their energy enters the ground and is absorbed, while the remainder is reflected and starts off on a new path through the air, forming a sort of echo from the ground. Thus a listener may hear the sound of an instrument twice over, part of the sound having travelled directly through the air while the rest has first travelled to the ground, been reflected there, and then travelled up to the ear of the listener. This second part will arrive slightly later than the first, because it has travelled over a longer path, but the difference in time will usually be imperceptible, and the reflected sound will seem merely to reinforce the direct waves. Here again notes of different pitch are treated unequally, but the discrimination is now usually against the high notes; the sound of the drums is reflected better than that of the fifes."

…because two bodies, naked and entwined,
leap over time, they are invulnerable,
nothing can touch them, they return to the source.
There is no you, no I, no tomorrow,
no yesterday, no names, the truth of two
in a single body, a single soul,
oh total being…
Octavio Paz, Sunstone (via observando)

I miss you and I dreamt you were here.
I tried taking photos of you in my dream. I spent every second with you, listening to your stories and watching you read and loving every time you laughed.
I woke up and I had no photos, and you’re not here anymore.

This is why I like dreams. This is why I’m thankful that I remember mine.

Sometimes they let you feel what you otherwise can’t feel.

living is dreams dying to live every end of every night let me lie
