The Light of Energy – Spectrum and Frequencies

Light is another expression of Energy in the form of Electromagnetic Radiation. In science, we use Light to change, gauge, and measure, the spatial forms and characteristics of other states of Matter, and Energy. But Light is also much more than many people realise.

So, What Is Light Exactly? Something We Can See? or, Something That Allows Us To See?

Well, it’s both of these things, and more.

Science tells us that a Quantum is the least amount of any physical entity needed to affect something else. Quanta, is the plural of Quantum.

Photons are Massless Elementary Particles and are the Quantum of the Electromagnetic Field. A Photon is a single Quantum of Light. So what about the other components that make up Light?!

This is what it’s all about, and the truth is out – again. But let’s start at the beginning…

What Is Light Made Of?

Physics tells us that unlike most other things in the Universe, Light is made up of both Waves and Particles. More specifically, the characteristics of an Electromagnetic type of Wave, and the energy of the Photon particles found in Light. This simultaneous dual representation of energy as Light, is what is known as the Wave-Particle Duality Paradox. This also means that Light is not made up of Atoms, further, that Neutrons, Protons, and Electrons, are parts of an Atom and it is only when combined, that these components are recognised as an Atom anyway.

How is Light Measured? – The Speed of Light

Light is Measured by its Wavelengths and Frequencies. By international agreement, the Metre is the official unit of distance and which translates to nanometres {nm} for quantum objects like Light. Whereas Frequency is measured in {Hz} and at a quantum level, in Terahertz {THz}.

The Photon travels by Waves at the fastest speed in the entire known Universe – The Speed of Light.

Officially The Speed of Light is 186,282 Miles Per Second, or 300,000 Km Per Second. That’s like a human-being bullet travelling seven and a half times round the world, in a second. The Speed of Light also allows us to measure other quantum objects.

We don’t know of anything that travels faster than The Speed of Light.

Light – Moments in Time


Did you know that when we say, ‘I’ll be back in a Jiffy’, we are actually referring to an expression of a unit of time? A ‘Jiffy’ is 33.3564 Picoseconds.


We covered a Picometre in a previous article and similarly a Picosecond is One Trillionth of a Second. That’s: 0.000 000 000 000 000 001, or in scientific notation form: 1 x 10−18

For context, think of it on a scale like 1 Picosecond to 1 Second, being like what 1 Second is to 31869 Years…


A Femtosecond is an even shorter moment than a Picosecond, coming in at a Quadrillionth of a second. This is an even more ridiculously and almost unrelatable short amount of time. Just how short, led Astronomers to determine the Unit of a Lightyear, corresponding to objects travelling vast distances and at vast speeds, like those on a quantum scale in Space


Light travels a distance of ‘Six Million, Million, Miles Per Year’  

A Lightyear is the distance it takes a beam of light to travel in one year. This measurement also allows us to figure out how far away things are in the Universe.

White Light and Prisms

When Light passes through a Glass Prism, and determined by the length of the Wave, we can see the individual colours of each individual component from that particular Light Source. Different components determine the different types of Light.

In this Image, the Light Source is Sunlight and the individual colours are the visible light Spectrum we are all familiar with. But direct that Spectrum of Light back through a second Prism and the Spectrum of Light turns back to the original Pure White light.

Is Light White? Why Do We See It in Colour?

The colours we interpret are a result of the characteristics of Wavelengths which in turn are determined through reflections, refractions, positions, actions, and reactions, of Matter. When we see all the waves of visible light together, they make white light.

Shadows and Darkness – What Is the Dark?

In Physics, Shadows are Areas that are blocked from receiving a Lightsource by an Opaque Object. The Light remains in front of the object whilst the Shadows occupies the spatial volume behind it.

Similarly, Darkness are Areas that receive a limited Lightsource and so appear Dark. Or, when the object or state of matter itself is such that it absorbs Photons – that is, when that object is even more powerful than the Energy in Photons, and that’s Dark.

Physics is still trying to understand things like the Cosmic Shadows of Dark Matter…

In the meantime, one of the Darkest Manmade Materials, is ‘Vantablack’ Material. It absorbs a whopping 99.975% of all Visible Light and was created by the UK’s Surrey Nano Systems. VANTA, is an acronym for Vertically Aligned Nanotube Arrays.

The ‘Bortle Dark Sky Scale’ is what we use to measure the luminosity of the Night Sky and Stars at a specific position or location.

Light Facts

  • It was another half a million years after the Big Bang before Photons evolved enough to start flying around the Universe carrying Light, and which can still be identified today, over 4 billion years later
  • Light is slowed down from its direct path when it comes into contact with Matter. In the case of Eyeglasses, it’s this slowing down of Light waves and particles passing through the glass, that allows us to see more clearly
  • Ancient Greece told us that Light Rays are emitted from our eyes. Science tells us that indeed we give off a Light and that this is brighter during the daytime and especially around our mouths
  • In a confined space, a 100-Watt Lightbulb can emit temperatures of around 325 Degrees F
  • On the annual Vernal Equinox, Light waves of Night and Day are the same length and thereby simultaneously everywhere at the same time and place
  • Reportedly, Apollo Astronauts used Mirrors to bounce Laser Beams off the Moon and this has allowed us to work out that the Moon is actually moving one and a half inches AWAY from the Earth, every year
  • ‘Sunlight Saving’ and ‘The Right to Light’ is an English Law that allows someone to contest the construction of any building that would obscure natural sunlight from entering another property – {if that sunlight has been available for 20 years or more…?}

What is the Electromagnetic Spectrum of Light?

The Electromagnetic Spectrum is the range of all possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. The Electromagnetic parts of a Lightwave are forms of radiation particles and are represented by the Electromagnetic Spectrum of Light. Only a small part of the Electromagnetic Spectrum of Light is actually visible to the naked human eye, at one tenth of a billionth of the entire spectrum. That’s a lot of stuff we can’t see with the naked eye. We know that. So, what’s going on there?!

Types of Electromagnetic Radiation Waves

The Electromagnetic Spectrum is divided into seven recognised types of Electromagnetic Waves that emit Light, and we categorise these according to their Wavelength and Frequency:

  • Radio Waves
  • Microwaves
  • Infrared Radiation
  • Visible Light
  • Ultraviolet Radiation
  • X-Rays
  • Gamma rays / Cosmic Rays

These seem fairly self-explanatory, but in brief, Radio waves vibrate to make the sounds we hear on something like a radio. Microwaves operate in such a way that they can be used to conduct heat, as with the familiar microwaves many homes use. Infrared waves can’t be seen by our naked eye either but the receptors that can are evidenced in the use of remote controls like the commonplace TV Remote. Visible Light as the term suggests, are the only electromagnetic waves we can see. We see these waves as the colours of the rainbow. UV Radiation is the light emitted from bodies like the Sun. X-Rays is Light that has had the removal of certain particles to produce the black and white tonal images we are familiar with. That leaves Gamma Rays, also known as Cosmic Rays.

The longer the wavelength, the duller the colour and lower the frequency is. The shorter the wavelength, the brighter the colour and the higher the frequency is. This point is very important when we come to understand what the most crucial component of Light actually is.

Temperature Affects Light

Incandescent, Luminescent, Florescent, and Evanescent Light are a result of the Temperature of the Matter involved in the energy transmuting process. So temperature also corresponds to the density of Light. The higher the temperature, the brighter the Light. The brighter the Light, the more difficult it is for us to see.

Photoluminescent Light is where Light is absorbed by Matter like Plants. Bioluminescent relates to bodies like the Oceans and also Us. We literally give off light and whilst most need equipment to detect it, some don’t.

Frequency Rate

Energy is Consciousness and it either contracts or expands to maintain or increase its Rate of Frequency. The process of how fast or slow energy contracts back towards its centre point of source field is the Vibration rate. The process of how fast or slow that same energy expands away from the centre point of the source field is the Oscillation rate.

The combination of both the pattern of Vibration (contraction) and Oscillation (expansion) speed is what determines the Frequency rate of all energy and things.

Light Representations Through the Years

  • 500 BC Empedocles proposed that Aphrodite lit fire in the human eye, causing it to shine outwards and thereby illuminating whatever the eye was directed at.
  • 300 BC Euclid claimed that Light travels in straight lines, and describes reflections, in his written work ‘Optica’.
  • 55 BC Lucretius states in his work ‘On the Nature of The Universe’ that:

‘The light and heat of the sun, these are composed of minute atoms which when they are shoved off, lose no time in shooting right across the interspace of air in the direction imparted by the shove.’

  • 2 BC Ptolemy presented his theories of Light Refraction, in his book ‘Optics’.

What is interesting about each of these statements or beliefs, is that with a little delving, they are all reveal truths.

Human Energy Fields and 12 D Ray

An introduction to how this translates to us as humans, is an awareness of our Human Energy Field and Spectrum of Frequency supports the beginning of understanding that all and everything around and within us is an Electromagnetic Wave Form and Vibratory Quality. Further that in the Ascension model this is an understanding of a 15 Wave Spectrum of Frequency that correlates directly with the Universal Rays and our individual Chakra systems, and their facets, functions, and correlations within the Light-Body.

As an example, the 12D Ray is a White Ray and a Ray is a term for an Electromagnetic Wave Spectrum and is the consciousness unit and a corresponding level of our being, specifically, the Avatar Christos consciousness awareness that manifests on the 12th Dimension in the Universal Time Matrix.

The Electromagnetic Field

The Electromagnetic Field or EMF of an object has a different meaning and is instead the characteristic distribution of electromagnetic radiation emitted or absorbed by that particular object. An Electromagnetic Field is composed of two related vector fields: the electric field (male) and the magnetic field (female). When referred to as the Electromagnetic Field, the field is imagined to encompass all of space – typically an Electromagnetic Field is considered to be limited to a local area around an object in space. We are Electro-Magnetic Field, Multidimensional Beings of Light.
