Human civilization would not exist without light – light defines life as we know it. In this „Tower of Light“ lecture, we shall overview some historical developments and recent breakthroughs, from exploration of the nature of light, to 4D imaging, and to the vast applications in the physical and medical sciences. We shall end the lecture with some thoughts on the needed enlightenment for future generations to co-exist on our planet.
