'The first corporeal form which some call corporeity is in my opinion light.' Robert Grosseteste

They become alive when starting to breath

Thousand Nightlights // or Noctiluca miliaris, or or many people call it the "light of the sea". It is an organism which looks like a transparent balloon with a small tail. It produces that bioluminecense light of the sea, to scare of its predators. One summer night I swam with a transparent costum stuffed with small glow in the dark sticks in the North Sea. I was an obvious enemy; the Noctilucaas started to flash their lights and intermingled with my "glow in the dark" costume. Only a few passengers were witness of a luminous phenomenology and all what's left is a picture of an empty costume after the performance...
