What is the root source of Light ?

    What is the root source of "Light"?

    I'm not talking about converted/transformed energy via external sources, i.e. Electricity or heat transformed to Light.
    Whats the root source?
    Energy itself?

    Welcome to PF!

    The unverse started with a lot of energy: In the beginning, it was hot and dense. All energy that exists today, including light, is ultimately derived from that initial state.
