When you have access to the Dulux paint range, there is no need to find new colours.

Setting transparency over a background mixes the colours, creating a new colour, regardless of what colours they were made from.

That's still not a new color, it's a shade of an existing one.

Well, we have gamma and micro waves on Earth. So if our eyes could see those waves, we would probably see them in a color.

You're being condescending about common knowledge, I'm well aware that light waves are photons

The reason we call it energy is because it is unstable matter, but it is matter non-the-less.

I'm only fairly certain about that

What many people don't understand is that all things are made of energy, including atoms, they are just different type of energies. In fact, without you realizing, even as you sit down reading this, you are in fact moving at speeds faster than electricity since you are made of atoms, which are made of energy.

Jesus man, literally anyone who has spent two minutes reading a physics book knows this, and I've read at least 20, and shitloads of online articles about quantum mechanics

You're the one who has it wrong, colors are nothing more than the absence of certain light waves. Dogs don't see color, but we do, because out minds can perceive them

No. That is dark white. Bright black is not the same.

That would make it dark grey.

I HAVE ALREADY EXPLAINED that bright black is black which hurts your eyes when you look at it because it is so bright. Not fucking grey or dark grey or any of that shit.

It's impossible, it's outside human perception, it's the whole point of the colour spectrum and the such.

Yeah, no.

Also if you look at bright black using the cyborg soundwave goggle device it sounds like an unreleased Amy Winehouse demo.

My mind still can't comprehend that some colors can be classified as another completely unrelated color. Why would I want another color INVENTED?

Supposedly there are colors that are simultaneously Blue and Yellow (not green) and Red and Green (not brown) but our don't have the right receptors to pick up on the conflicting wavelengths.

New colors do exist, we just can't see them.

Ever thought what color the waves below and above the visible spectrum would look like if we could see them?

This thread is bloody stupid.

Anyone who's studied physics beyond the age of 14 knows the answer to this.

Probably not. We would have to find another shade of pink or something, since I don't think pink is in the color spectrum. So we could try to do that, find another shade that couldn't exist because it isn't in there.

I don't think you can invent a color, but you can name a color that has not been named yet. Even if humans were fitted with enhancements so see the whole EM spectrum, you still wouldn't be inventing anything, just naming what was already there. Kind of like how the Vikings "discovered" America.

It's not just the "space" or percentage of the matter which composes the brain that's important. The brain has so many neurons, connections, and built in systems for sensory relay that it can work to improve processing speed on-the-fly.

Humans use almost their entire brain for most of the day. Much of it is not dedicated to conscious thought though, there's plenty of other things the brain has to manage.

It's a myth that we could improve our thought by somehow "unlocking" the unused portions of our brain. Only around 10% of the brain is neurons. Stressful situations can have an effect on how you think and behave but it's not your brain somehow working more efficiently.
