Sentai Denki, aka Bioelectromagnetism, is an aspect of all living things, including all plants and animals. Some animals have acute bioelectric sensors, and others, such as migratory birds, are believed to navigate in part by orienteering with respect to the Earth’s magnetic field. Also, sharks are more sensitive to local interaction in electromagnetic fields than most humans. Other animals, such as the electric eel, are able to generate large electric fields outside their bodies. Biological cells use bioelectricity to store metabolic energy, to do work or trigger internal changes, and to signal one another. Bioelectromagnetism is the electric current produced by action potentials along with the magnetic fields they generate through the phenomenon of electromagnetism.
The metabolic energy, the electricity, it’s too subtle to distinguish, but it’s everywhere in our lives. It could be in the arms of the lovers; it could be in the empty car park under daily routine; it could be some crazy nights; it could be abandoned posters; it could be the fog in the city; it could be every hesitant and every impulse; it could be the moment that has been kept forever; it could be the heartbeat or - the glimmer we couldn’t reach.
Living, it is all about how to catch the illuminations. And we can just let them glow/grow.
