THE NEW COLOR THEORIES by phishy THE NEW COLOR THEORIES by phishy
people often ask me what its like in my head.

its exactly like that. infact, i often ask myself that very question. seriously..what would it be like. most people tell me that we already saw all the colors we can see. the spectrum of light. they say that if it was something like ultraviolet or infrared we just wouldnt see it. yeah but we dont have ultraviolet paint! maybe the aliens do! what would we see? just unpainted metal? NOBODY KNOWS.

so yeah...thats how it is in my head pretty much all the time.

I used to wonder about this until I learned about this thing called the electromagnetic spectrum. Science ruins everything for me. >=

I've often thought of this too, but I figure that our eyes would burn, since, as you said, any other color would not exist on the color scale... or something like that...

unless...WOULD IF THERE WAS A DIFFERENT COLOR SPECTRUM FOR DIFFERENT SUNS?! that would neato! and you could paint something under that different sun, and then bring it back here and it would be a different color spectrum...

Or s'mthing like that...

Uhmmm... Hey, wouldn't want to burst your bubble but we do have ultra violet paint, you know those ones that emit visible light only when you expose it to ultraviolet light. All the detergent are filled with them to make your cloths look extra white when you expose them to the suns ultra violet rays. Soooo... , any questions? No?
Thinking these kinds of stuff makes me want to kill some one. :nod::chainsaw:

Heeeey, that's a good point. I never really thought about it like that. Our vision is only able to see colors that are within our visual spectrum, right? So if the color was outside the spectrum, then we probably couldn't see it...OR COULD WE?!
Damn, this is going to keep me up all night.

i dont believe this! i was awake half the night thinking about this colour idea.
paint isnt just made of pigment its made of other painty stuff too, which is probably yellow or white or something. if aliens had ultraviolet paint it'd probably look like un-coloured paint to us. thats what i think anyway.
also, plenty of flowers have ultraviolet patterns for the benifit of bees etc - and all we see this the plain petals in 'normal' colours...... maybe flowers are aliens?

there are a lot of colors we can't see, you should know that by now, It's basic light spectrum stuff, we can only see the colors made of streams with a lenght between 400 and 700nm (I don't remember the exact numbers), so, we just wouldn't see it, but yeah, I have asked that myself several times, when I was 13, before I saw the light spectrums topic in biology class. (Insects see some colors we don't for example)

cya :P
