Is Red Really Red?
Re: Don’t get too white in the morning. Morning sun is nice and warm for a while, and that may have some benefits, too. Getting a strong “it’s noon” signal in the morning may not be quite optimal.
Good advice! Notice how the shadows are green at sunrise and sunset? That’s because red light is predominant. Check out the “green flash” at sunset too if you’re at the right location.
Philippe Brou, Thomas R. Sciascia, Lynette Linden, & Jerome Y. Lettvin (“The Colors of Things: Color ‘illusions devised (for the first time) on the display screen of a computer are evidence that color is not perceived just by sensing the light from individual surfaces in a scene,” Scientific American, Sept. 1986) wrote ….
“Color, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.”
“The curve for the sun at eight degrees was measured about half an hour before sunset. The peak in the spectrum of diffuse daylight then occurs at roughly 660 nanometers, or deep in the red part of the spectrum. Hours earlier, when the sun is high in the sky, at 70 degrees, the peak is at wavelengths some 200 nanometers shorter, or well into the blue part of the spectrum.”
Goethe was right about the above. Newton wasn’t. Newton looked *AT* the prism. Goethe looked *THROUGH* it.
Or was it Newton’s followers, and not Newton himself, who took the extreme view?
According to Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1726) …
“And whenever I seem to speak of radiation or rays, coloured or imbued with colour, I should like it always so expressed that it does not sound philosophical or special, but intelligible to the general public; since those ideas are accepted which people, watching experiments of this kind, can themselves comprehend. Indeed, rays properly expressed, are not coloured. There is nothing else in them but a certain power or disposition which so conditions them that they produce in us the sensation of this or that colour.”
Do we go to a therapist to get colored of a trauma? Or opaque of a trauma?
We go to get CLEAR of a trauma.
Maya (relativity) is thinking color is something it’s not.
