Wouldn't it makes sense to grant white full color rights for additive, and black full color rights for subtractive color generation?


Is there nothing free from political correctness?


The articles are interesting, but, they are referring to perception. The human basis set for colors, it seems, is roughly 'all the colors of the rainbow': about 6 or so for most cultures.
This part of the thread, oddly enough, was referring to PC monitors and how they created their colors. Human conventions, aside, we seem to be able to create our full perceputal set with a group of three.

An interesting though I've always had was - were I to see through your eyes - would I still call red red (etc.)? As long as we all look at the same color and give it the same name, we'd have trouble determining if we actually perceive them the same. Considering the poor taste in color exhibited by some, I'm beginning to wonder if they are mis-wired in their perception as compared to my perceptions (a.k.a., perfection).

So, in a nut shell - protestors may line up at my doors, but I will not give full color rights to black and white - nor those nasty little greys!
