I know You are aware of this ???
But I have put this Link
For a list of Colours…
I use the word "Red
" in relating to the end of the colour band, at the Blackest (Not Black but toward the Black.) end of the range
Yellow to Red is seen
rather than its opposite band Blue to Violet.
If the Prism is in this orientation to the Edges of the Slit…
If we Invert
the "Edge" only, these Colours seen in the above Drawing of the Prism Change from Yellow & Red to Blue & Violet ???
Yellow to Blue (its Complimentry Colour) and Red to Violet (Its Complimentry Colour)
Here is a Little test for you to prove that Colour has "Opposites"...
Take a piece of White paper and colour in a spot of say Blue (about 2 cm in Diam).
Stare at this spot for a few seconds.... the longer time the better the result.
Slide another piece of White paper rapidly over the top of the first peice of paper with the Blue Spot to hide the Blue spot.
And Yellow appears where the Blue Spot was in your Vision.
is the Complementary Colour of Blue....
Now take another piece of White Paper and Colour in the Blackest Spot you can.
When we perform the same test by Rapidly covering the Black Spot with a piece of white Paper a White Spot replaces the Black Spot.
Not this Spot (White) Appears a Brighter White than the White Paper ???
So White is The Complimentary Colour to Black ???
The Same Applies if a White Spot is on a Black Back Ground... A Blacker Spot appears than the Black Back Ground ???
The above test which I have described as you are most likely to be aware of is the test used to find a colours “Complimentary Colour”….
But My Question is to you ....
Why is the White Spot Brighter than the surrounding Paper ???
This has to do with thresholds of our Vision concerning the Interpretation of Colour and The Mind.
The Colour Range we Interpret is well within the Thresholds of Black and white the Mind Sees.
It is Not
the Eyes or Brain that sees, as thy are only Part of the “Interface
” the Mind uses to See this experience i.e. this little
Black and White are
Colours, Contrary to the belief that Black and White are Not Colours Conveniently by many.
Black involves Light…. or we would Not be able to see Black that is if Black absorbs all Light.
We (The Mind) need LIGHT to See…
So if Black absorbs all light as many are taught, how can we see Black ???
LIGHT was to be reflected from a Black object, we would Not be able to see it but rather a Hole in the same shape and size would appear
But this does Not happen and we still see the Black Component ???
