Color is simply the reflected light that isn't absorbed by a surface. It'd be more apt to describe red for example as everything but red.
So without light, nothing has color? I've often gone for walks late at night and observed that everything is in shades of grey. Also, why does white light consist of "all" colors combined to begin with?
White is black and black is white. Black is the absorption of all color, white is the reflection of all color.
Without light nothing has color. But a region without visible radiation does not truly exist. Even at night there is some light
Now you're talking. I love the concept of things not actually existing unless being observed or as you said, with the absence of visible radiation. But what this really mean? Are there such regions in the universe? Besides, everything is a wave until observed.
Very interesting! Do you think there are regions like that in our own galaxy?
About the paint, what is the reason to create "true black"?
Very interesting! What would it "look" like to stare into a room covered with true black "paint"?
As a Nietzschean there's a saying. When you stare long into the abyss, it stares back into you... I think this applies. But I've never actually been in a true black space. Though I hear sensory deprivation can make you hallucinate after a while.
Yup, I've heard that! My older brother loves float tanks. You basically float in a vat of water with absolutely no sound or visual stimulus. He said it was an amazing experience.
What is a "Nietzschean"?
k, cool! Interesting, he died the same month/day my brother was born! How long have you been into him?
