Glowing people

Added Tue, 04/10/2016
the glowing areas of the body

To the fire phenomena can be attributed to three main types:

In this article we will describe the phenomenon of glowing people.

The phenomenon of glowing people considered those cases, when a healthy person or part of the body, and from wounds comes the light. Sometimes the glow comes from the corpses. Often from contact with such a person can start to smolder or ignite objects. To attribute it to spontaneous combustion is possible only indirectly.

The earliest mention of glow a person can be found in the religious sources. As an example I may quote a fragment from the biography of St. Lidwina written by Thomas a Kempis (C. 1380 - 1471 in the German religious writer, monk Augustine): "And though she always lay in the dark and the light material was unbearable for her eyes, a divine light was pleasant to her; that's why her cell often wonderfully lit up and it seemed that it is full of material, lamps or torches. And it was not strange that even her body overwhelmed with God's brightness".

But if then the glow was attributed only to the elite, but now the phenomenon has changed in its manifestations and effects in humans.

There are several types of manifestations of the phenomenon:

  • The glow and heat from the wound. Flammable items, presentation to the wound, can illuminate. An example is a case told by a resident of Chita Valery Sukharev. In 60 years of hunting he met a man who had a broken arm. In low light in the room was seen as the right hand of this man glowed in the dark, and with the fingertips dripping glow, like the flame of the acetylene torch. Hardly has he put his hand on the newspaper, ustilovsky table, paper in this place turned yellow and became brittle, as if it had been exposed to high temperature or acid. In complete darkness it became evident that the strange spots on the face, which under normal lighting has a grey shade, also glow only very weakly.
  • Man begins to glow after exposure to radiation. The glow of cold, harm to others is not. An example can be considered the case, told Troitskii customs. Placing the documents on the car, found that the passenger - resident of Kazakhstan - fonit and glows in the dark: the level of ionizing radiation women exceeded the natural level of background radiation up to 40 times. Further investigation revealed that the passenger was undergoing treatment for thyroid in one of the resorts of the Chelyabinsk region, where in her body injected radioactive iodine-131.
  • Glow a person's acquired after some disease or manipulation of doctors. The glow of cold, harm to others is not. An example would be the following case: in 1913, in the Taganrog circus acrobats rehearsing unsuccessfully jumped and broke his leg. After recovery I noticed that from both hands, shoulders and head began to radiate an intense yellowish-bluish light.

    You can also bring the case mentioned in the study by Gould and Pyle, “Anomalies and curiosities in medicine”, published in 1937, when women suffering from breast cancer, from the patient's chest area went light. It was so bright that even covered the clock face at a distance of meters.
  • People emits light at will. Often the glow of cold, harm to others is not, but sometimes a person can so something to burn. An example can be considered the known case of St. Petersburg, when people not only could wish to emit light, but also knew how to acquire this ability. The ability of the allocation of light, according to Mr. S., affects everybody who drinks an infusion of the herb Herba damiani, exported them out of India. Drink the infusion should be performed within two weeks and is associated with a particular regime, abstinence from wine, meat, and sour all. Two weeks later, the results seem required: the body of the subject during sleep start to run the lights.


  • Glow people – a special case of spontaneous combustion or pyrokinesis.
  • The cause of luminescence is microbe Photorhabdus asymbiotica, causing a disease similar in its symptoms to bubonic plague: the body of the patient covered with large ulcers. Doctors say that insects died from the new diseases began to glow in the dark. According to doctors, most likely, will start to glow and ulcers on the bodies of patients, if time does not begin treatment.
  • The man glows too bright aura.
  • This phenomenon is associated with the phenomenon of bioluminescence - a special case of the well-known luminescence. A faint glow (the second type of bioluminescence) are common to all living organisms - plants and animals.

In many textbooks and scientific papers on toxicology describes the wound, emitting radiance. The reason is, as a rule, the presence of stripes of luminescent bacteria or secretions that contain the biochemical substances, luciferin and luciferase and ATP (adenosine-phosphate), which are usually not connected, and if they connect, they begin to emit light.

  • The cause of luminescence is self-hypnosis. The principle is the same as stigmatic.
  • Dr. Protti, who made a lengthy statement regarding his observations over a lady Monaro, suggested that her poor health together with fasting and piety increased the amount of sulphides in the blood. Human blood emits rays in the ultraviolet range, and the sulphides can be made to luminesce with ultraviolet radiation— this explains the splendor of the chest ladies Monaro (the times, 5 may 1934).
