Where you have [E + 9 = 1 or M + I = L] base 26 counting has [E + 9 = N, M + I = 1E]

I actually like turning visual colors into a base 8 representation. Though my mind wants blue to be #3, it only works if blue is #4. Cool coincidence anyway.
But the numbers/colors lining up fall apart when you expand past a sum greater than 7 because you're in base 8.
K= black = 0, 1K = 10, 2K = 20
R = red = 1, 1R = 11
G = green = 2, 1G = 12
Y = yellow = 3, 1Y = 13
B = blue = 4, 1B = 14
M = magenta = 5, 1M = 15
C = cyan = 6, 1C = 16
W = white = 7, 1W = 17
(Can't get spacing right, pretend it lines up)
+ K R G Y B M C W
K K R G Y B M C W
R R G Y B M C W 1K
G G Y B M C W 1K 1R
Y Y B M C W 1K 1R 1G
B B M C W 1K 1R 1G 1Y
M M C W 1K 1R 1G 1Y 1B
C C W 1K 1R 1G 1Y 1B 1M
W W 1K 1R 1G 1Y 1B 1M 1C
1 + 4 = 5 or Red + Blue = Magenta
2 + 4 = 6 or Green + Blue = Cyan
3 + 4 = 7 or Yellow + Blue = White
[(2 + 1) + 4 = 7 or (Red + Green) + Blue = White]
Then....
5 + 7 = 14 or Magenta + White = 1Blue
7 + 7 = 16 or White + White = 1cyan
As a diagram:
The Base 26 one throws me off, for not being in typical hexadecimal style addition.
Here (Base 16 Multiplication table):
Where you have [E + 9 = 1 or M + I = L] base 26 counting has [E + 9 = N, M + I = 1E]
With the Base 26 grid being diagonally striped like any other addition table. This because you still lens it though base 10.
The design in the grid is a result of repeating integers, no matter the base.
Still really cool stuff nonetheless. I am a fan of number patterns too.

To smart for me.
Probobly to smart for most of us here.
Could you dumb it down ?
