I had read recentely that the theory exists that all electromagnetic interactions are due to an exchange in photons. I am not well read in quantum mechanics or quark theory but I was wondering if these photons were the same as the photons that make up light energy and if the photons exchanged during some kind of electromagnetic interaction could be used to power photosynthesis for organisms without a source of direct light. That is, could you "rechannel" the photons to induce photosynthesis in the dark? Thanks again.
