    I've been called Enlightened by the Most Masters, and yet, I suffer people. Guess the heck what, I see other Enlightened ones, suffer too. The message, lol! I deserve it. But there is nothing else but God. No emptiness in God. Such is the truth.

    When light reflects and enters our brain,

    information is transferred. We get an impression from where light has been. What we may learn from that interaction is more than just what can be seen in the visible spectrum. For example, plants generate their own photons. They generate light. That light is passed along as we...
