Part of Light: More than Meets the Eye series

Since Edison popularized the electric light bulb, we've been busy refining life in the electric fast lane. In Beings of Light, some critical thinkers consider how we continue to be controlled by light even though we're no longer confined by the simple rhythm of day and night.

Novelist Victoria Glendinning and social critic Edward Tenner chronicle the electricity revolution, while international dark sky experts advocate a return to nighttime darkness. Neurobiologist Dr. George Brainard demystifies the esoteric notion of the "third eye"-pinpointing it as the tiny pineal gland that regulates melatonin in response to the amount of light our brains receive. Psychiatrist Dr. Raymond Lam considers light's healthy impact on those suffering from seasonal affective disorder (SAD), PMS and bulimia. Biophysicist Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp reveals that even human beings emit light, in tiny ultra-low-intensity emissions known as biophotons, invisible to the naked eye.
