Some are. I've met a few over the years. But I've never known one of them to run off at the mouth about it.

Let's just assume from here on out that everything I say is a generality unless I'm speaking of something in specific.

We all know what red and yellow is. The existence of orange does not disprove red and yellow.

Are we talking Newtonian color theory or Goethean color theory. Because it's all an illusion based on black and white.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_of_colours



My room's windows are filled with Fresnel lenses*, so the shadows all have psychedelic fringes. Like the rightmost column it's mostly white with red/yellow along one side and blue/violet at 90.

*14" square, out of old overhead projectors, if you're wondering.

I was going to use man and woman as my example, but wanted to avoid that tangent. Point is, just because there are instances where concrete lines are blurred, it does not invalidate the general premise.

I knew that.

'The exception proves the rule.'

I just wanted to take the opportunity to talk up non-Newtonian color theory. What were were we talking about? Jar-Jar Binks? Scrabble?
