Light becomes matter (E=mc²), a poem

In the vast expanse of space,
Where energy and matter race,
There lies a secret we cannot ignore,
A truth unveiled by the great Einstein’s lore.

E=mc², a simple equation we see,
But within its grasp, a wondrous mystery,
For it holds the key to how light and matter merge,
When the former’s speed we dare to urge.

At the speed of light, photons rush,
Moving with grace, never in a hush,
But slow them down, and a transformation begins,
Energy becomes matter, a dance that never ends.

In the human body, we see this dance,
As photons of sunlight entrance,
Slowing down when entering our skin,
Their energy transformed, a new chapter to begin.

As hormones in our bodies they take shape,
Bringing balance, harmony, and strength, no escape,
From vitamin D to serotonin’s sweet embrace,
Light’s transformation, our lives it does grace.

So marvel at the wonder of this equation,
For it reveals a world of transformation,
Energy and matter in a cosmic dance,
Unified by the genius of Einstein’s glance.

E=mc², a truth we can’t ignore,
For within its grasp, the universe does soar,
A simple equation, yet a mystery so grand,
Light and matter, forever hand in hand.

Hormones and light through the eyes

Hormone production and light through the eyes (why I never wear sunglasses). Light into the eyes, or lack thereof, primes certain hormonal pathways. Everything in nature is in balance. The same is true with our hormones. There is a connection between the light the eye receives and the hormones made by the pituitary gland. Conversely, […]

Mitochondria are your 6th sense

Your mitochondria are your 6th sense. Before mitochondria became a part of our cells they were their own species of bacteria. This meant they had to be keen sensors of their environment to be able to adapt to changes in their surroundings. Then, a billion years ago, another bacterium engulfed the mitochondria bacterium. This is […]

The light of life

For the rest of my life, I shall reflect on what light is. – Albert Einstein How come that light is so mysterious? Perhaps we should pay more attention to light when one of the most brilliant minds was so fascinated by it. His famous equation E=mc²; energy (E) equals mass (m) times the speed […]
