One of a number of lines or parts diverging from a common point or center, like the radii of a circle; as, a star of six rays.
One of a system of diverging lines passing through a point, and regarded as extending indefinitely in both directions. See Half-ray.

Part of a line, containing one endpoint and extending to infinity in one direction.
One of the radiating spines, or cartilages, supporting the fins of fishes.
Any one of numerous elasmobranch fishes of the order Raiæ, including the skates, torpedoes, sawfishes, etc.
In a restricted sense, any of the broad, flat, narrow-tailed species, as the skates and sting rays. See Skate.
A fish related to sharks and skates, which bears live young and has a cartilaginous skeleton, a broad flat body and a blunt snout.
A radiating part of a flower or plant; the marginal florets of a compound flower, as an aster or a sunflower; one of the pedicels of an umbel or other circular flower cluster; radius. See Radius.
One stalk of an umbel.
in woody stems, a radial band of cells traversing the conducting elements; of a compound umbel, one of the first (lower) series of branches of the inflorescence axis.
One of the peduncles or branches of an unbrel ; the falt marginal flowrs in Compositae.
A line of light or heat proceeding from a radiant or reflecting point; a single element of light or heat propagated continuously; as, a solar ray; a polarized ray.
A beam of light energy.
a column of light (as from a beacon)
emit as rays; "That tower rays a laser beam for miles across the sky"
One of the spheromeres of a radiate, especially one of the arms of a starfish or an ophiuran.
One of the component elements of the total radiation from a body; any definite or limited portion of the spectrum; as, the red ray; the violet ray. See Illust. under Light.
a group of nearly parallel lines of electromagnetic radiation

To mark, stain, or soil; to streak; to defile.
To mark with long lines; to streak.
(a) A light ray, a wave of electromagnetic radiation; (b) on the surface of a moon or planet, a streak of material that is relatively light in shade, presumable representing material ejected when a crater was formed.
A streamer of ejecta associated with an impact crater. Rays are most often of higher albedo than their surroundings. The albedo contrast may result from either disruption of the local surface by the ejecta or by emplacement of ejecta on the surroundings, or both.
The radial, medullary or pith rays run outward from the center of the tree, across growth rings. They function in the living tree as horizontal food conduits and storage vessels. In some woods, like the Oak they are very pronounced in the wood, giving it an open grained texture.
Bright material that extends radially from many craters on the Moon; believed to have been formed at the same time as the associated craters were formed by impacting objects from space; usually, but not always, arcs of great circles. They may be several hundred kilometers long.
Strip of cells extending radially within a tree. See Flake, ray
A cluster of wood cells that are arranged radially. Rays give quarter sawn or split wood it's distinctive fish-scale appearance.
Ray aims to be a full-featured extensible raytracer portable among POSIX and Windows with native support for multi-threading and network distribution. It will provide a scene programming langage with a VM [more features to be added once available].
(n) An entity of unspecified length, but no depth or breadth, that extends into infinity from a specified point. In computer graphics, ray is a common term used, when rendering a scene, to describe the path a light ray follows.
Ray is a 2004 biographical film focusing on thirty yearsDirector Hackford noted this focus on the years 1935-1965 in his DVD commentary for the film; the only exception to this focus is the film's final scene featuring Julian Bond and set in the Georgia State Capitol in 1979, a scene Hackford included at Charles' specific request.of the life of legendary rhythm and blues musician Ray Charles.
One of the seven streams of force of the Logos; the seven great lights. Each of them is the embodiment of a great cosmic entity. The seven Rays can be divided into the three Rays of Aspect and the four Rays of Attribute, as follows: Rays of Aspect: The Ray of Will, or Power. The Ray of Love-Wisdom. The Ray of Activity or Adaptability.  Rays of Attribute: The Ray of Harmony, Beauty, Art, or Unity. The Ray of Concrete Knowledge or Science. The Ray of Abstract Idealism or Devotion. The Ray of Ceremonial Magic, or Law. The above names are simply some chosen from among many, and embody the different aspects of force by means of which the Logos manifests.
(Theosophy) One of seven streams or chanels of force, or emanations, from the Logos; the seven qualities of God expressing individualized attributres of divine nature. Each bequeaths its quality, color, and sound as it impacts consciousness. The seven Rays are divided into three major Rays of aspect and four minor Rays of attribute. The Rulers, or Chohans, of the Rays are also known as Seven Spirits, or Elder Brothers before the Throne, or (in Eastern thought) Seven Great Rishis. They are:I-will, power (red); II-love, wisdom (blue); III-intelligence (yellow); IV-art, harmony, beauty (green); V-scientific understanding (orange); VI-devotion (indigo or rose); VII-ceremonial order (purple).
One of the seven streams of force from cosmic sources that enter our solar system and condition all life within it, including all the kingdoms of nature on Earth. The planets in the solar system are really the "vehicles" that pass this energy on. Each individual has their own "ray make-up".
