The Ethereal Light

Posted by Srinivas Koduri (Wheeling, IL, United States) on 7 October 2006 in Abstract & Conceptual.

Yesterday i saw an article on jason's blog about out of body experiences and scientific inferences and i wanted to post this abstract. There is a contorversial scienctific intrepretation of the ethereal or etheric body. There is also intresting branch of photography named Kirlian Photography dealing with photographing the etheric body and other para-scientific phenomena like aura or the vital force of life, it is named after a scientist called Semyon Kirlian.
Kirlian proposed controvesially that his images of living objects were a physical proof of the life force or aura which allegedly surrounds all living beings. Here is an example of his work, an image of a leaf shot using his photographic method. For the awe of skeptics who dont believe in the unexplained_by_the_sceince, there is also a striking resemblence of his photographs with the acupuncture points of human body.
My photograph here is not a kirlian photograph, it is a photograph of a transparent LED torch light shot hand in absolute darkness during a blackout here in vizag.
Hope you all enjoyed the para-normal information here.
I would also like to see other's para-normal experiences and interpretations. Have a good weekend everyone.
