The International Day of Light
The International Day of Living Together in Peace

(Lidija Gruber) 


On May 16, 2024 the World celebrates two important and special UNESCO initiatives:

- The International Day of Light
- The International Day of Living Together in Peace.

These are two fundamental principles of human existence: light and living together in peace. The International Day of Light is a call to pay a bit more attention on phenomenon called Light, on all the amazing things light does for us - from science, engineering, medicine to art. First what crosses our mind when we think about Light is Sun, warmth, seeing clearly.

Write your awesome label here.

But Light is not just about keeping our planet warm and visible; it's also about knowledge, feelings, and above all what it means to be human. At the same time, the International Day of Living Together in Peace reminds us how important it is to get along with everyone, no matter our differences. It's a day to listen, respect, and appreciate each other, working together towards peace and harmony. Let's remember that we all share this world, and it's up to us to make it a better place for everyone. UNESCO invites us to rethink how we connect with the world around us. By exploring the properties of light, we can discover new things and understand the world in a whole new way.


What we know today about Light is mostly coming from scientific research within special branch in physics which is called Optics and Quantum Mechanics in mathematics.

Light is a form of electromagnetic radiation. It can be visible to the human eye. Or even not visible, the light still exists.  It is made up of tiny packets of energy called photons, which travel in waves. Light propagates outward in all directions at the speed of approximately 299,792 kilometres per second in a vacuum, Light waves can vary in frequency and wavelength. Light can be reflected (bounced off) or refracted (bent) when it encounters a boundary between two different materials.  Light waves can be polarized, oriented to minimize signal degradation and maximize transmission efficiency. Light waves can interfere with each other constructively or destructively. Materials can absorb and emit light at specific frequencies, depending on their atomic and molecular properties. Light behaves both as a wave and as a particle (photon), which is known as wave-particle duality described by the theory of quantum mechanics. The most importantly, light exists as the wave and potentially becomes particle (matter) in the presence of observer. These are only basic properties of light.

Light operates within optical system which refers to a collection of components processing light. An optical system generally operates as follows: it begins with a light source, which passes through an entrance aperture. This aperture can include various components such as lenses, mirrors, detectors, projection screens, reflecting prisms, dispersing devices, filters, thin films, and fiber-optic bundles. The light then exits through an aperture, resulting in the final image. The well know examples of optical system is the human eye, microscope or telescope.  


Yet besides scientific triumphs, we must pause to ask ourselves: What does light mean for us as human beings? How does it shape our development and existence beyond its obvious functionalities?

Our fascination with light is intrinsic to our nature. We are drawn to the sun, the stars, and the moon - to everything that shines with brilliance. We also tend to think about ourselves as beings of Light. And while some may dismiss such thoughts as metaphysical or esoteric, a deeper examination of light's properties reveals something profound: that everything in our world, including ourselves, is a manifestation of light.

The study of light is not over yet. Current studies show that Light is a paradox. It is POTENTIAL. It is associated with wisdom and knowledge, with the divine. Study of light teaches us that Light is very modellable medium, the one that can be shaped, formed, adjusted, and managed with relative ease. It is a medium of immense power, one that holds the potential for both creation and control.

We have the access to magnificent potential of light with the Teachings of Grigori Grabovoi.


The scientist and academician, Grigori Petrovich Grabovoi, introduced the Teachings of Grigori Grabovoi at the beginning of new millennium.  

The Teachings serve as a fundamental tool for individuals to implement control over reality which means exactly to learn how to utilise light.  The primary objective is twofold: to equip every individual with the means to prevent potential global catastrophes and to foster creative and harmonious personal and collective development ensuring eternal life to all. The Teachings is providing scientific, theoretical and empirical understanding of structures of the human being which are in direct connection with light, light creation and light processing.

Grigori Petrovich Grabovoi is the author of numerous books, seminars and patents. One of the patents is “Information carrying system” which describes how reality is created and perceived particularly emphasizing the role of light and optical systems in transmitting information within  human being.

According the Wave Synthesis Theory reality can be conceptualized in terms of optical systems. Optical systems are structures that manipulate light, such as lenses, mirrors, or prisms. In this context, the analogy suggests that understanding reality involves the interaction of different elements, similar to how optical systems manipulate light.

Humans can be considered as very peculiar transmitting optical systems  because the perception of reality is achieved through images – elements of light which contain information. Human being, as transmitting optical system, is designed to transmit light from one point to another with minimal loss or distortion.

We perceive the world through our optical system that we process in our inner world and then based on our perception we create optical image in our inner world that we project into the outer world.


What does it mean when Grigori Grabovoi says that humans can be considered as very peculiar transmitting optical systems? Let’s first see at physical level. When we think about optical systems we first think of human vision. Light is reflected off objects and projected onto our retina by the lens. The retina then detects this light and sends impulses along the optic nerve to our brain where the end result is decoded into image and what we know as vision.

The nervous system of human organism is a complex collection of nerves and specialized cells known as neurons that transmit signals between different parts of the body. It is essentially the body's electrical wiring.
In the context of light signals, entire human body is light body indeed.

If to look at the level of cells and chromosomes, each cell membrane consists of liquid crystals which unique molecular arrangement gives them fascinating optical properties like reflectivity and double refraction (birefringence), making them extremely useful in processing the light and in propagation direction of light.

Moreover, our DNA is built out of liquid crystals as well. The purpose of DNA is to instruct organisms on how to develop, survive, and reproduce.


All of this mentioned is explaining human being as optical system just at physical level. But besides physical structure of human being, according to the Teachings of Grigori Grabovoi there are four structures presenting a human being: Soul, Spirit, Consciousness and Physical Body.  It seems when we speak only about physical aspect of human being, we only touch the tip of the iceberg. There is so much more to discover about the real light nature of human being when we speak of other three structures: Consciousness, Spirit and Soul.

According to the Teachings of Grigori Grabovoi humans create light, that is, the Soul, Spirit and Consciousness create light. Describing the Soul, Spirit, Consciousness, and Physical Body as an optical system is an intriguing analogy. In an optical system, light passes through various components, undergoes transformations, and ultimately manifests as observable phenomena. Similarly, one could draw parallels between the functions of an optical system and the structures of human existence: Soul, Spirit, Consciousness and Physical Body.

The Soul receives the light from the source of light (God/Creator) and reflects the image of human being in this peculiar optical system. Soul is light producing substance, kind of mirror. That is why it is said that the human being is created as the image and likeness of God. It represents the fundamental essence or energy that animates the individual, much like how light serves as the fundamental energy in optical systems.

The Spirit could be equated to the medium through which light travels in an optical system. It serves as the conduit for the Soul's expression and interaction with the world, just as a medium facilitates the transmission of light.
Consciousness could be compared to the functions of prisms/crystals in a optical system. Crystals redirect light for image rotation, direction, focusing.  This is why Consciousness is often called crystal. Consciousness is also compared to lenses serving for focusing mechanism in an optical system. It shapes and directs the Soul's energy and the Spirit's medium, allowing for perception, awareness, and interpretation of experiences.

The Physical Body can be seen as the interface where the effects of the Soul, Spirit, and Consciousness are manifested in the material world. It interacts with external stimuli, much like how the final output of an optical system interacts with its surroundings.

While this analogy may not capture the entirety of the complexities of human existence, it offers understanding the interplay between the different aspects of being. Just as an optical system relies on the synergy between its components to produce meaningful outcomes, the integration of the Soul, Spirit, Consciousness, and Physical Body contributes to the richness and depth of human experience allowing humans to create light, control the light, create reality and control it by light always ensuring peace of the World and infinite harmonious development of all.
