Blue Eyes & Melanin Sunglasses


By Atom Bergstrom

ALL mammal irises are BROWN except the irises of an albino, which are PINK.

The deactivated OCA2 gene responsible for “blue” eyes removes most of the brown melanin pigment and reduces the size of the remaining melanin particles to a maximum of one micron (1/400,000,000 of an inch).

By comparison, it takes several thousand microns to produce deep red.

This reduction creates Tyndall scattering, named after British physicist John Tyndall (1820-1893).

The shorter blue light rays are reflected back to the observer by the remaining microscopic melanin particles.

There are NO pigments in blue eyes, just as there are NO pigments in a blue aura.

All blue irises — and blue auras — are created by reflected blue light.

Blue jays, bluebirds, blue butterflies, blue dragonflies, as well as blue eyes, are all free of blue pigment.

If you beat on a blue jay feather with a hammer, the feather turns black when the surface optical effect is destroyed.

There’s also no such thing as a white bird feather.

In birds, “white” and “blue” are schemochromes, optically produced colors from the coherent scattering of light, the same interference pattern that causes the “color” of an oil slick.

A parallel phenomenon, Rayleigh scattering, the selective scattering of light, makes the sky and the ocean appear blue.

There’s no chemistry involved in a blue sky — only the elastic scattering of light named after British physicist Lord Rayleigh (1842-1919).

Green eyes are caused by an increase in the size and quantity of melanin particles, just as waterborne micro-organisms (phytoplankton, etc.) change the color of the ocean from blue to green.

Light brown and dark brown eyes are caused by a still further increase in the size and quantity of melanin particles.

However, alien black, brown, orange, and/or yellow pigmentation in an iris DOES indicate toxic phenotypic (not genotypic) disorders, but normal brown irises are actually “sunglasses” for the eyes.

The idea that brown eyes are toxic appeared because iridology was originally developed by German racial hygienists.

Blue eyes, blond hair, and fair skin were defining features of the so-called Master Race, also known as the Nordic Race, Aryan Race, Nordic-Aryan Race, and Nordic-Atlantean Race.

Diffractional “structural” blue is more common on Earth than pigmentary blue.

Patricia Sloane (The Visual Nature of Color, 1989) wrote …

“The Tyndall blues, explained in terms of diffraction, account for many of the blue colors seen in beetles, butterflies, birds, and mammals. Named after the Irish physicist John Tyndall, who discussed the phenomenon in 1869, they provide another example of the ubiquitous visual affinity between blue and black. The Tyndall blues might as appropriately have been called the Tyndall blacks. They are typically created when a layer of melanin, a black pigment, is overlaid by translucent ridges, scales, or other structures that scatter light. A blue wing feather from a blue jay, for example, contains no blue pigment. When crushed, the feather is reduced to a black, not blue, powder.”

Denis Llewellyn Fox (Animal Biochromes and Structural Colours: Physical, Chemical, Distributional & Physiological Features of Coloured Bodies in the Animal World, Second Edition, 1976) wrote …

“The iris, seat of colour in the eye, is representative of the general type of biocolloid which, if unpigmented, gives rise to structural blues in integumentary tissues of birds and mammals. Of the iris’s structure we find a good discussion by Roberts (1880), who points out that the coloured portion of the eye is made up of a thin membrane, bearing unstriped muscular fibres, nerves and blood capillaries, all incorporated in a fine, delicate reticulum of fibrous tissue. In normal eyes the uvea, containing a layer of brown and black melanin, lines the back of this membrane, behaving as a light-absorbing curtain, with the result that irides bearing no additional pigment in the main body of their structure manifest the blue colours of scattering. Brown eyes possess an additional layer of yellow and perhaps ruddy brown pigment on the outer surface of the iris, and may also have deposits of the dark melanin among the interior fibrous structures. In green eyes there is a relatively uniform distribution of the yellow pigment over the outer surface of the iris. Lacking additional dark pigment aggregates at the surface or in the interior, the pigmentary yellow and structural blue are combined to yield various shades of green. Increasing concentrations of yellow and darker melanins in the surface and inside of the iris lead to hazel, brown and black colours. Albino eyes lack melanin pigment in both the uveal layer and the internal stroma. They consequently appear pink, owing to the reflexion of red rays, from the haemoglobin in the fine capillaries, through the semi-transparent, light-scattering fibrous tissues. In this instance also, as with the opaque melanins, the red pigment masks the easily affected blue colour of scattering, else such an eye should manifest a purplish hue.”

    Same with food. Blue berries are not true blue?
    Great post, Mr. Berg


    • August 16, 2016 @ 10:24 am Atom

      Blueberries are colored with a water-soluble pigment and pH indicator called anthocyanin.

      Color stability begins at RED and ends at BLUE — Mother Nature’s rarest pigment.

    I noticed my black satin paint appeared blue before it was on the surface and dry. Interesting.

    Moreover. Is delta possible while awake at 2:30 am, are you in delta automatically or do you need bagpipe music or half awake half asleep state to give you that boost at this timing?


    • August 16, 2016 @ 10:35 am Atom

      Yes, it’s the same principle as the iridescent colors of a soap bubble or oil slick.

      It’s easier to reach delta at the end of Liver Time, throughout Lung Time, and during the first half of Large Intestine Time.

      To use a golf analogy, it just takes a putt instead of a drive between the hours of 2:30-6:00 a.m.

      Delta transcends music, but bagpipe music predisposes a person to it.

    What can you eat or do for type 2 diabetes ?


    • August 16, 2016 @ 10:41 am Atom

      Estrogen and polyunsaturated fats are major causes of Type 2 diabetes.

      Saturated fats, dietary fiber (not added, but internal to specific foods, and exercise are highly protective.

      Old age is “like” diabetes. Indeed, it IS diabetes.

    Atom, I’ve lost a question in the maze of the interest, can you remeber and re-paste it here?! It was to do with Adano and 3 ways of enlightenment, I asked about he tourist/traveller route!? Thanks

      Re: Travelling as a tourist for enlightenment, how does that work?

      It takes a lot of traveling to overcome the suprachiasmatic nucleus.

      Basically, the idea is to switch up Time Zones as often as possible without getting “jet lag.”

      It didn’t work for world traveler Lowell Thomas, who was one of the first (maybe “the” first) to suffer from jet lag.

      Also, see my One Radio Network blog entry for March 31, 2012 …


      The “way of the tourist” involves the paired SUPRACHIASMATIC NUCLEI of the anterior hypothalamus, the “light center” of the brain, and the light-sensitive protein melanopsin.

      The suprachiasmatic nuclei are receptive to “broad-capture light cues,” and can be metaprogrammed by heliotherapy, phototherapy, color therapy, or by traveling back and forth across Time Zones (east/west).

      The suprachiasmatic nuclei are more commonly referred to singularly as the suprachiasmatic nucleus or simply as the SCN.

      The SCN has been more thoroughly researched than either of the other two “timing” areas of the brain (ventromedial nucleus and lateral geniculate nucleus).

      The SCN is longer and thinner in women, and rounder and thicker in men.

      Light exposure causes glutamate to flow into the SCN.

      Erwin Bunning (The Physiological Clock: Rhythms and Biological Chronometry, 1973) wrote …

      “In mammals, periodicity is usually controlled via the eyes, so that the absence of eyes or covering the eyes results in the free-running of the rhythm with typical individual deviations from 24-hour periodicity.”

      Exception to the rule: The “way of eating on time” is a back-up system (Plan B) for blind people.

      Robert Y. Moore (“Organization of the mammalian circadian system,” Ciba Foundation Symposium 183, Circadian Clocks and Their Adjustment, 1993) wrote …

      “… the suprachiasmatic nuclei themselves are composed of sets of independent oscillators, which are coupled into a network that operates as a pacemaker. The nuclei produce an apparently simple output expressed as a high firing rate during the day and a low firing rate at night.”

      Steven M. Reppert & David R. Weaver (“Coordination of circadian timing in mammals,” Nature, Aug. 29, 2002) wrote …

      “For orchestrated circadian timing, the collective SCN synchronizes the timing of slave oscillators, each of which is a multioscillatory entity. Synchronized slave oscillators, in turn, regulate local rhythms in physiology and behaviour. A hierarchical multioscillatory system seems to confer precise control and stability on the widely distributed physiological system it regulates.”

    Hi Atom, what colors would you match these body systems with ?
    Immune system
    Large intestine/colon


    • August 16, 2016 @ 11:12 am Atom

      Colors are mostly associated with functions rather than systems.

      As a very, very, very general rule (and of questionable therapeutic use) …

      Immune system — white

      Liver/gallbladder — indigo/violet

      Kidneys — green and blue

      Large intestine/colon — red

      Thyroid — indigo

      Blood — blue

      Lungs — white


      • August 16, 2016 @ 10:07 pm John

        What are the functions that these colors would be associated with ?


        • August 17, 2016 @ 10:24 am Atom

          Specific colors have multiple functions. Here are several …

          Red is a stimulant and irritant.

          Green is an antiseptic and “cerebral equilibrator.”

          Blue is a febrifuge and anodyne.

          Indigo is a sedative and respiratory depressant.

          Violet is a cardiac, lymphatic, and motor depressant.

          White is “what happens when you close the circuit on all seven colors.”

          Many more color functions are listed in Butterflies Need No Taxidermist.

          Important: Cognitive Shocks (Engrams) neutralize and sabotage positive color functions.

    When are you and Patrick getting together and do the show in the same room? Patrick and Atom in the same room, a thunderstorm could be soon to follow. Much love.

    Also a question to Atom; Is delta possible while awake at 2:30 am, are you in delta automatically or do you need bagpipe music or half awake half asleep state to give you that boost at this timing.

    2nd question if you will. Black color of my satin paint showed like blue before I painted it. Interesting.

    So does this work for foods too? (e.g. blueberries really show purple?)


    • August 16, 2016 @ 11:14 am Atom

      Thanks, Christopher!

    Multipost, ya!


    • August 16, 2016 @ 11:15 am Atom

      Thumbs Up!

    Do B vitamins like say in barley and perhaps adding sorghum syrup counteract estrogen? Im putting this in Zone One. Is barley neutral?
