Eyes that glow in the pitch-black night make for many a scary tale. But why do some animals' eyes glow at night?
"A lot of the animals we see, especially the ones that go out at night, have a special, reflective surface right behind their retinas," says Dr. Cynthia Powell, a veterinary ophthalmologist at Colorado State University. That light-reflecting surface, called the tapetum lucidum, helps animals see better in the dark.
When light enters the eye, it's supposed to hit a photoreceptor that transmits the information to the brain, Powell explains. But sometimes the light doesn't hit the photoreceptor, so the tapetum lucidum acts as a mirror to bounce it back for a second chance.
A large number of animals have the tapetum lucidum, including deer, dogs, cats, cattle, horses and ferrets. Humans don't, and neither do some other primates. Squirrels, kangaroos and pigs don't have the tapeta, either.
I'm suspecting that most of us are now considered 'GM organisms'...?... we all need to get black lights and start looking at our world.
I am so angry at what has happened to mankind, that the evolutionist fools in charge of deciding what can go into our bodies do not consider us different from the apes and insects and have purposely created a modified human organism without our consent nor knowledge.
The fluorescence of the human lens is caused by accumulation of advanced glycation end products formed by non-enzymatic glycation on lens proteins. Advanced glycation end products are important for the pathogenesis of diabetic long-term complications. Lens fluorescence may thus serve as a biomarker of the extent of tissue-damage related to advanced glycation end products which may be of importance for the management of diabetic patients.
end cut, so still the question remains why does it glow green because it can glow red. Green glow is a marker for trans-genes. This article does suggest it can be from tissue damage but then why does my 2 year old grandson's eyes light up like a green Christmas tree bulb?
Does my 2 year old grandson already have advanced glycation of his eyes? His eyes displayed this trait rather strongly.
It also can be from protein modification which is I believe what we are looking at . I first came across this in an article saying it was a newly found compound from human lenses. It plays a role in breakdown abnormal calf proteins . This process results in crystallization of the human lens, I believe.
I once posted a thread here about color blindness, it effect the ability to see blue light properly . When I took an eye test that was what the results said, I had a rare type of color blindness to some dark shades of blue light. Blue light or the equivalent radio waves are what are being utilized in some viral brain control techniques . I do not know if that is a co-incidence but well hmmmmmmm???

Porphyrias are a group of inherited or acquired disorders of certain enzymes in the heme biosynthetic pathway (also called porphyrin pathway). They are broadly classified as acute (hepatic) porphyrias and cutaneous (erythropoietic) porphyrias, based on the site of the overproduction and accumulation of the porphyrins (or their chemical precursors). They manifest with either neurological complications or with skin problems (or occasionally both). A clinically induced and histologically identical condition is called pseudoporphyria. Pseudoporphyria is characterized by normal serum and urine porphyrin levels.
The term derives from the Greek ðïñöýñá, porphyra, meaning "purple pigment".
The name is likely to have been a reference to the purple discolouration of feces and urine in patients during an attack. Although original descriptions are attributed to Hippocrates, the disease was first explained biochemically by Dr Felix Hoppe-Seyler in 1874, and acute porphyrias were described by the Dutch physician Prof B.J. Stokvis in 1889.
Cutaneous porphyria The cutaneous, or erythropoietic, porphyrias primarily affect the skin, causing photosensitivity (photodermatitis), blisters, necrosis of the skin and gums, itching, and swelling, and increased hair growth on areas such as the forehead. Often there is no abdominal pain, distinguishing it from other porphyrias.
Pathogenesis In humans, porphyrins are the main precursors of heme, an essential constituent of hemoglobin, myoglobin, catalase, peroxidase, respiratory and P450 liver cytochromes.
Heme synthesis—note that some reactions occur in the cytoplasm and some in the mitochondrion (yellow)Deficiency in the enzymes of the porphyrin pathway leads to insufficient production of heme. Heme function plays a central role in cellular metabolism.
This is not the main problem in the porphyrias; most heme synthesis enzymes—even dysfunctional enzymes—have enough residual activity to assist in heme biosynthesis. The principal problem in these deficiencies is the accumulation of porphyrins, the heme precursors, which are toxic to tissue in high concentrations. The chemical properties of these intermediates determine the location of accumulation, whether they induce photosensitivity, and whether the intermediate is excreted (in the urine or feces).
There are eight enzymes in the heme biosynthetic pathway, four of which—the first one and the last three—are in the mitochondria, while the other four are in the cytosol. Defects in any of these can lead to some form of porphyria.
The hepatic porphyrias are characterized by acute neurological attacks (seizures, psychosis, extreme back and abdominal pain and an acute polyneuropathy), while the erythropoietic forms present with skin problems, usually a light-sensitive blistering rash and increased hair growth.
Variegate porphyria (also porphyria variegata or mixed porphyria), which results from a partial deficiency in PROTO oxidase, manifests itself with skin lesions similar to those of porphyria cutanea tarda combined with acute neurologic attacks.
All other porphyrias are either skin- or nerve-predominant.
Kam and I just checked, our eyes do not glow. We both have brown eyes though, mine have a lot of green in them. My kids told me, when I get really angry they turn bright green, does that count...?..lol
My brother just send me the information on the black lights he purchased 2 for us to use, we also have a James Bare machine coming for Karen. He wants to but a scope with the computer compatible feature. Which is the best one anyone know, Digital Blue?
I have to invest in another Eye-clops my Doctor kept mine.
The green fluorescent protein (GFP) is protein composed of 238 amino acids (26.9kDa), which exhibits bright green fluorescence when exposed to blue light. Although many other marine organisms have similar green fluorescent proteins, GFP traditionally refers to the protein first isolated from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria. The GFP from A. victoria has a major excitation peak at a wavelength of 395 nm and a minor one at 475 nm
GREEN FLUORESCENT PROTEIN (GFP) GFP (Green Fluorescent Protein) is a protein produced by a jellyfish Aequorea which fluoresces in the lower green portion of the visible spectrum. The gene for GFP has been isolated and has become a useful tool for making expressed proteinsfluorescent by creating chimeric genes composed of those of GFP and its different color variants linked to genes of proteins of interest. One may thus have an in vivo fluorescent protein which may be followed in a living system. There have been several recent developments for the use of GFPand several different color variants One initial problem with the use of GFP was the excitation and emission spectra of the wild type protein for fluorescence microscopy. Wild type GFP has two excitation peaks, a major one at 395 nm (in the long UV range) and a smaller one at 475 nm (blue) and its emission peak at 509 nm (green). For wild type GFP, it has been found that exciting the protein at 395 nm causes fairly rapid quenching of the fluorescence. Also most investigators have used FITC filtersets to observe GFP staining. To alleviate this problem, several mutants of the GFP gene were constructed which have increased fluorescence, but perhaps more important, the major excitation peak has been red-shifted to 490 nm with the emission staying at 509 nm. This is better for use of FITC filtersets as this mutant GFP has the same excitation range as FITC. Furthermore, the main laserline used for FITC excitation is from the argon laser at 488nm. There is no good commonly used laserline near 395 nm in most confocals. One of the mutant GFPs which had a 5-6 times greater amount of fluorescence has a serine to threonine substitution at position 65 in the protein (S65T: See Heim, et al., Nature, 373: 663-664 (1995). Since then, other mutations have given further improvements in the brightness of the emission (See Clontech's website).
Wow Jen... can anyone take a pic of you with the black light on and upload it here? I'd love to see that... not that I love that it's happening to you. I'm sure it's scary... but don't freak out ok? Morgs love it when we do... which I know you already know.
The next time I go into town and visit my firends I'll try it on mine, they have a blacklight. I see now as I read on tho that you used a blacklight flashlight. I'll see if I can pick one up and take a pic with my camera if mine do the same.
Of the links you gave us to pics, this is normal of most animals...
This however is caused by genetic modifications...
Which of the two did your eyes look like the most?
I've held my friends blacklight over my head before and many particles show up that fluoresce. It takes a minute, but there were plenty of them in my hair. I also fluoresced at Dr. Hildy's... just never tried it on my eyes before. If I do it, I'll do it quickly as to not harm my eyes. I suppose it's the same as looking into the sun for a long time tho... not worried about it.
hugs ~~ bannanny
IF I COULD SIT ACROSS THE PORCH FROM GOD... I'D THANK HIM FOR GIVING ME YOU!
Grant: Unbelievable. Is lymebusters his site?

makinmusic: Wikipedia totally misinforms the public about Morgellons and makes things worse for us. How to combat????
Nov 16, 2014 12:26:24 GMT -5
threader: The Morg Wiki is totally unbalanced. Even if you don't believe in Morgellons, the page fails to inform because it is so biased and incomplete. Start by adding the history of: CEHF, UNH New Haven studies, UoO/Wymore studies, Carnicorm studies
Nov 16, 2014 16:00:16 GMT -5
Baraka Obam: The simple reason for this is the bug people SWARMED Wikipedia and they kept changing the description of the aspects, SO the bug people are the reason we can not adapt it and it is sort of ONE sided.
Nov 17, 2014 1:02:07 GMT -5
Baraka Obam: The fact the media and the government coverup uses the itching is bugs under the skin and fibers are textile fibers, matchboxes to prove the disease is a mental illness, people still adhear to the crazy talk because they can NEVER be wrong.
Nov 17, 2014 6:14:11 GMT -5
Baraka Obam: There will never be a shift in opinion as long as these phobias are advertised as the disease symptoms, these phobias will continue to mask our symptoms as real. Want to be seen as credible stop coming out with inssne sounding ideas, but you never will.
Nov 17, 2014 6:21:18 GMT -5
Baraka Obam: They will NEVER stop posting insane sounding stuff because literally, some are insane, I am quite sure the disease has compromised the brain and the symptoms have furthered the bug under the skin PHOBIA. I itch so it must be bugs SYNDROME,
Nov 17, 2014 6:33:29 GMT -5
Baraka Obam: The issues can not be symptoms of a disease BECASE I AM SPECIAL, I can not catch a disease through sex because then I would be DIRTY, I am the ONLY bright star of humanity, I am DIFFERENT, unable to carry or catch disease.
Nov 17, 2014 6:36:59 GMT -5
SueK: What do you mean? Do you think there is no bugs or parasites involved?
Nov 18, 2014 13:24:56 GMT -5
vivere: Jaeggermeister stops them dead on contact. I even put it on my skin in small watered down doses. Ive been drinking about two shots a night and it has had amazing results. I sleep better too of course.
Nov 20, 2014 20:12:17 GMT -5
Baraka Obam: LOL, booze for bugs, SueK you do not have bugs, let vivere show us pictures of her bugs.
Nov 20, 2014 22:41:44 GMT -5
Baraka Obam: Invisable bug infestations are reserved for the people that are buggy, people that are bugging out, itching is a sign of disease not invisible bugs. Want to see the people that believe their disease is related to invisible bugs, go to a insane asylum.
Nov 20, 2014 22:46:05 GMT -5
Baraka Obam: This is not a funny sight but it is a condition of the disease that destroyed also the mind. Alzheimer's patients ITCH LIKE MAD. Look it up.
Nov 20, 2014 22:47:55 GMT -5
threader: The matchbooks are proof of how bizarre symptoms can get, they are only proof of mental illness to inept and closeminded docs.
Nov 21, 2014 23:35:39 GMT -5
threader: Booze works fine to make the symptoms stop after a couple of drinks, but is a healing setback since M returns stronger once sober. I could tell you of recreational drugs that stop symptoms even better, but I assure you they make things worse long term.
Nov 21, 2014 23:37:49 GMT -5
threader: BO I watched my grandma suffer from Alzheimers for her last couple of years. Itching was only one of many symptoms she had that were similar to morgs. Lesions and skin cancers were also in the symptom mix, despite always having great skin.
Nov 21, 2014 23:43:35 GMT -5
Baraka Obam: So what exactly is your point, what do you think made her mind go and her itching start, put your thinking cap on and stop filling your brain with drugs and booze.
Nov 22, 2014 2:15:32 GMT -5
Baraka Obam: and threader, Toni made her own problems when she made it her duty to attack, sorry about her luck, but she made it. I looked the other way too many times.
