Paper Abstract

A well established fact of the generation of excited states and photons in biological systems indicates that both life and light are intrinsically associated. This association stems from the electromagnetic nature of the both phenomena. The energetic and informational role of endogenous, spontaneous photon emission is discussed in the framework of two hypotheses attempting to explain the origin, mechanism and biological significance of biogenic radiations.
