Bioluminescence contributes greatly to the joy that human beings can experience from nature, stimulating their sense of vision. For the organisms that can produce visible light, it serves for their own individual purpose of camouflage and defense, or communication, or capturing prey or attracting mates. For human beings, it offers a diversity to the natural environment and a sense of wonder.
Human beings are also endowed with creativity. Just as this creativity has manifested in producing pharmaceutical drugs from plants and animals, and bioengineering crops, human beings are applying their creativity to utilize bioluminescence for a wide variety of potential uses.
