The Physical Background and the Informational Character of Biophoton Emission

  • Chapter
Biophotons

Abstract

At the present time it is generally impossible to show evidence of the „informational character“ of any signals, since agreement about what „information” is does not exist. According to Shannon’s accepted theory, one of the necessary conditions of „information“ is a reduction of the lack of knowledge about an expected outcome. In that case we would have to say in every case what outcome, what knowledge, what lack and what reduction we speak about.
