500 Shades Of Gray
Black refers to a Father Trauma.
Gray, to a Mother Trauma.
Dr. G. Seppilli (“Animal Magnetism,” Alienist and Neurologist, Jan. 1882) wrote …
“The alteration in the perception of colors, with which H. Colm, Professor in the University of Breslau, has been specially occupied, are very interesting. In the majority of the cases, the singular phenomenon of color blindness was observed. This is brought out under two aspects. Sometimes the color blindness is complete, all objects appear gray, contrast of colors is feebly perceived, the white, the black and the various gradations of gray are, however, quite distinct. At other times, the disturbance in the perception of colors consists in this, that, on presenting to the person magnetized a colored paper on a white ground, she does not see its true color, but ordinarily its complementary color, as green instead of red, yellow, instead of blue, or vice versa; often, again, she sees, at the same time, the color of the object and its complementary, or first the one, and then the other. It is to be noted that the impression of a given color perceived by a person in hypnotism does not continue the same, but, in the course of the observation, it is subject to changes. Thus, some persons at first see an indistinct gray, which afterwards becomes transformed into another; others again have, in the beginning, the sensation of a color, though it may be false, but afterwards it loses its intensity, or becomes substituted by a gray.”
Gray commonly accompanies Mesmeric consciousness, yet is a latecomer when it comes to the evolution of civilization — some might argue “devolution.”
Edward O. Wilson, Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge, 1998) wrote …
“Languages with only two basic color terms use them to distinguish black and white. Languages with only three terms have words for black, white, and red. Languages with only four terms have words for black, white, red, and either green or yellow. Languages with only five terms have words for black, white, red, green, and yellow. Languages with only six terms have words for black, white, red, green, yellow, and blue. Languages with only seven terms have words for black, white, red, green, yellow, blue, and brown. No such precedence occurs among the remaining four basic colors, purple, pink, orange, and gray, when these have been added on top of the first seven.”
Why do you suppose the Gray aliens always return to the Mother ship?
