• This coherent emission of bioluminescence (having the characteristics of a \ "bio-laser\" emission) was demonstrated by using high technology and methodology, such as a photomultiplier, that is able to determine the Poissonian Photocount Statistics of a \ "biophoton emission\" and the hyperbolic-like relaxation of \ "delayed luminescence\" by analyzing the \ "biophoton emission\" and the
