Kirlian photography.noun,.plural.Kirlian photographies
Kirlian photography was named after Russian electrician Semyon Davidovich Kirlian. During a treatment at the hospital, he noticed something. When a patient got in contact with electrodes from a high-frequency electrical generator, an aura was created. The aura is an electromagnetic field surrounding the human form. All living creatures generate and emit.radiations. Photons of light, electromagnetic frequencies, heat, sound, and scent are all emitted from our bodies in direct relationship to our internal states. This remarkable, subtle system of exchange contains a wealth of information. Kirlian photographic analysis combines high voltage, high frequency, ultra low current, electrical fields and photographic techniques to make visible subtle energy fields interacting around living and non-living objects of study. These techniques utilize 50,000 volts and a broad range of frequencies to resonate with the test objects, capturing their patterns for analysis. In traveling through and reacting with our complex systems, this influx of electrical energy amplifies and makes visible the body's biological and energetic exchange. The camera and the subject interact to produce a corona of multi-frequency energy waves, from low infrared to well past the visible spectrum; The process of photographing an object by exposing film in a dark room to ultraviolet light, results from electronic and ionic interactions caused by an electric field. Photographs thus taken shows light, glowing band surrounding the outline of the object.

King Henry VIII (1491-1547) king of England (1509-1547)
Henry VIII had six wives, fought numerous wars in Europe and even aspired to become Holy Roman Emperor in order to extend his control to Europe. He rejected the authority of the pope and the Roman Catholic Church, confiscated church lands and promoted religious reformers to power.(*). His greatest achievement was to initiate the Protestant Reformation in England. 

He ruthlessly increased the power of royal government, using Parliament to sanction his actions unapproved by the people (compare the United States Articles of Confederation which, with some changes became the constitution of the U.S.A.). Henry ruled through powerful ministers who, like his six wives were never safe in their positions. He is most famous for founding the Church of England and for having six wives, two of whom he had beheaded.
Henry's wives were:
Catherine of Aragón-was married to Henry at twelve years old. The pope refused to make a decision on Henry's  proposed annulment and in 1533 Henry was married to Anne Boleyn by the archbishop of Canterbury. In 1534 the pope finally declared that the first marriage was valid, thus bringing about the alienation of Henry VIII from the Roman Catholic church. Catherine did not quit the kingdom, but was thereafter closely guarded. During this time she displayed heroic courage and steadfastly refused to sign away her rights and those of Mary her daughter.
Anne Boleyn-lasted less than a month, Henry having tired of her quickly. On May 2, 1536 Anne was imprisoned in the Tower of London on apparent charges of adultery with her brother, three gentlemen of the privy chamber and a musician of the court and of conspiring with these men against the king's life. She was executed and replaced by Jane Seymour.
Jane Seymour-served as a lady in waiting to Catherine of Aragón and later to Anne Boleyn. Less than two weeks after the execution of Anne Boleyn, Jane privately married the king. She died on October 24, 1537, 12 days after the birth of her son, Edward, Henry's only male heir, later King Edward VI of England. Her portrait was destroyed by fire in 1698.
Anne of Cleves was divorced by Henry six months into the marriage on July 9, 1540.
Catherine Howard-was accused of immoral conduct both before and during her marriage. She admitted to premarital relations and her accusers produced witnesses to testify to her adultery. Two of her accused lovers were beheaded in December and on February 13, 1542, she, too, was beheaded in the Tower of London.-
Catherine Parr-was sixth and last queen of Henry. After Henry's death and the accession of Edward VI, she married the new king's uncle, Thomas Seymour, Baron Seymour of Sudeley.

Martin Luther King Jr., 1929-1968 (assassinated), American clergyman and Nobel Prize winner, one of the principal leaders of the American civil rights movement and a prominent advocate of nonviolent protest, as also Ghandi was.

Martin Luther King, Jr., was born in Atlanta, Georgia, the eldest son of Martin Luther King, Sr., a Baptist minister and his mother Alberta Williams King. His father served as pastor of a large Atlanta church, Ebenezer Baptist, which had been founded by Martin Luther King, Jr.'s maternal grandfather. King, Jr. was ordained as a Baptist minister at age 18. Throughout his education, King was exposed to influences that related Christian theology to the struggles of oppressed peoples. At Morehouse, Crozer and Boston University, he studied the teachings on nonviolent protest of Indian leader Mohandas Gandhi. King also read and heard the sermons of white Protestant ministers who preached against American racism. Benjamin E. Mays, president of Morehouse and a leader in the national community of racially liberal clergymen, was especially important in shaping King's theological development.Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.
