Different wavelength, different mode of action. Fact is that EM radiation "excites" matter and thus effects temperature and further rate constant. Do you see how the Sun warms the planet Earth?

Hard UV generates free radicals and would likely be an important driving force for chemical reactions along those pathways. There would be many reactions occurring in parallel.

Infrared spectroscopy has confirmed the existence of ethyl formate (amongst other chemicals) in deep space. Ethyl formate gives raspberries their distinct flavour, and also smells like rum.

What Type of Plant was the Burning Bush?
The following information is culled from Chapter 13 of Torah and Flora by Louis I. Rabinowitz.
And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him (Moses) in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush; and he looked and, behold, the bush was burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
There is little to be found within our Written Tradition that can help us in identifying the bush (s'neh in Hebrew) that burned without being consumed. However, our rabbis of old were apparently well acquainted with the type of bush. In Exodus Rabbah (3:2), we are told the bush was commonly used as a garden hedge and grew under all different types of conditions. We are told in the Talmud that the bush had thorns that curved inwards in such a way that "when a person inserts his hand into it, he is unscathed, but when he withdraws it, it lacerates him. (Shabbat67a)." The Jerusalem Talmud (Ma'aserot 48b) tells us the bush produced a berry that was at first red and then turned black. And a Tosefta on Bava Kamma (18:17) says the plant was used as an insecticide. All of this point to the correct identification of the s'neh by the monks of St. Catherine in Sinai as the Rubus Sanctus. (the raspberry bush)

The primary natural source of '___' (the "spirit molecule") is the acacia.
Acacia has been a always been a symbol of Freemasonry (hundreds of years before '___' was known), and symbolizes the spirit and immortality.
'___' is the "spirit molecule", and can be made synthetically from ethyl formate (and tryptamine).
The burning bush was one of the richest natural sources of ethyl formate.
The universe is rich in ethyl formate.
I'm starting to see what you're suggesting here, prevenge. Excellent observation!
One interesting thing to note about the pineal gland, is that it is symbolized as the world's largest statue of a pine-cone in the center of Vatican City, as well as atop the sculptures of Caduceus' of many fine establishment's decorations.
It's also depicted at the God Apollo's Oracle at Delphi as the Oomphalos an ancient artifat with a fibonnaci-esque "net" pattern stiched or etched around it... it's known as the "navel of the world" or the "center of the world"
The Caduceus represents the Hindu Kundalini dual snake-shaped energy circuits, namely Ida and Pingal, that rise from the sacred bone: the Sacral bone, up and around the spinal column, up all 33 degrees of vertebrae, to the place of the skull (Golgotha)... the 33 symbolic years of Christ's life.
This is where alchemy (White Tantra + orgasm-less coitus) plays a role in unlocking the Kundalini.
The pine cone is also present on the Thyrsus of Greek mythology, a staff with a pine cone on the tip, held by many Gods and Goddesses.
The pine cone is ALSO present on the handle of the Pope's cozier.
pine cones (as well as their pineal gland symbolism, are known for the PHI RATIO observable in the relative vector of the growth pattern of their seeds.
The WINGS of the Caduceus represent the ventricles of the brain, which are filled with the Kundalini (Christos) energy and throughout the cavity, form more of the calcite crystals recently found within the pineal gland... .
*speculation* - Thus enabling higher rate of '___' production / metabolism / frequency transmission ?
Man I love passing this intricate and awesome info out. It's my happy hobby. nay, my purpose.... aaaah Occult Anatomy, do me right!

I did not know that about the synthesis from ethyl formate. (also known as ethyl methanoate - (further research for google searches that use that name specifically?)
(from tryptamine and ethyl formate) A suspension of 1.0 g tryptamine in 50 mL ethyl formate was held at reflux for 15 h during which time the mixture became homogeneous. The volatiles were removed under vacuum, yielding an oily residue of the formamide. This may be purified by distillation but this unpurified product can serve satisfactorily in the following reaction. This residue was dissolved in 50 mL anhydrous THF and added, dropwise, to a solution of 1.0 M LAH in THF (40 mL, 40 mmole) which had been diluted with another 50 mL THF. After the addition was complete the reaction mixture was heated under reflux for 15 hours. Reflux was continued as a solution of 40 mL 1.0 M freshly distilled ethyl formate in THF was added dropwise over the course of 2 h. Heating was discontinued and the reaction mixture was quenched by the addition of excess solid sodium sulfate decahydrate at room temperature. The reaction mixture was filtered and the filtrate was concentrated under vacuum to yield 1.15 g pure N,N-dimethyltryptamine as an oil which solidified upon storage in the freezer. The material can be recrystallized from hexane to give white crystals with a mp 67 °C.
