A general analysis has been presented of the millimeter-wave and farinfrared spectroscopic properties of in vivo cellular systems, and of the boson radiative equilibrium with steady-state nonequilibrium molecular systems. The frequency threshhold of spectroscopic properties associated with such nonequilibrium effects is (roughly) estimated to be as low as -100 GHz, if the Frohlich vibrational model can be invoked for cellularmembrane systems. On this basis, the rationale for the specific experimental protocol employed was further to utilize the fact that in a photosynthetic preparation the onset and disappearance of the nonequilibrium state can be switched by modulating the optical-illumination input. An order of magnitude of refinement in the theoretical models will be required to serve as a reliable guide for the prediction of frequency threshholds.
