Try to figure what the mechanism behind quantum entanglement (spooky action at a distance) is. Try to describe what the speed of light is (because it's not constant througout the universe). Try to determine what the distance between two objects really is (because if we measure distance with light, and light can't be trusted... well, whatever.).

Ok then, describe what each of those phenomenon isn't.

when you look at a colour you see every other colour except the color you perceive

Exept you don't see those colours because colour only exists in the brain. The colour you see is the colour the object is. Green grass is green.

I really do not know for sure ckitch. Thanks for the comment in the similar thread * and after looking into this subject, I am left with more questions than answers, and the line between objective color and subjective perception seems a bit fuzzy. When researching the subject, there is a plethora of studies and articles, but I cannot find a definitive answer, because I can't seem to separate the color from the language/perception factor.

Here are some interesting articles to ponder:

www.bbc.co.uk...
www.icsi.berkeley.edu...
online.wsj.com...
optometry.osu.edu...
arstechnica.com...

Peace,

Whoa now! You're just making up science as you go. Who says that's possible? That's like trying to figure out every number zero isn't.

no no ,a blue object is in fact orange yes that's right ORANGE

conversely an orange object is blue

Hope diamond

look at a color negative if you want to see what you really look like .All those pretty green trees we see are red

our eyes/brains reverse all the color information we see,to top it all off you have never really seen anything all you see is the light reflecting off of whatever you are looking at not the object itself

And that's precisely my point. To describe what something isn't, you need to know what it is. I fail to see how the former will expand our understanding of higher dimensions and QP.

I think we all see blue the same or similar but not the other colours.

Blue =Orange
Orange=Blue

that's a fact

Red=Green
Yellow=Purple..and so on in any universe where there is light
whether or not there are eyes to see it

I'm trying to tell you ,mystery solved, has nothing to do with how anyone in particular s eyes see things

screwd up the link in the earlier post here 's the real link Blue diamond glows orange
