  • Technically, (the subject of this thread is wrong) if you hold your breath long enough you lose your color vision. The eyes require a lot of oxygen and as they are deprived the cones lose their function. Your vision turns to shades of gray as the rods do most of the work picking up the images. As oxygen is furthur decreased your vision closes towards the fovia, the focal point, where the most receptors are. [Edited on 2/25/2005 10:53:27 AM]

  • a blackbody emits a continuous spectrum, meaning all wavelengths are emitted from it and none are absorbed and scattered. For example, our sky is blue because shorter light wavelengths (such as blue) are absorbed and scattered by the atmosphere. Longer wavelengths (such as red) don't get absorbed. Space appears black because there is no atmosphere to scatter the light waves. So yes, you could basically see black as an absence of color. but yeah, as Atsumi said, light-black and paint-black are completely different. [Edited on 2/25/2005 9:58:49 AM]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] meshnaster black is the absence of color, so it is not a color.[/quote] That is partially right. If your talking about light. But black in light and plack in crayons and paint is different. In crayons and paint it is all the colors together.

  • This just doesnt make sense to me. If it's the absense of color, how can you mix a bunch of colors together to make black? On color bars, the lower they go, the DARKER it is.

  • Why would you think this? How is it not a color? the only absence of color is dark, since color is light. If black is the absence of color, how is there black dye for clothes, and black ink for pens?

  • Black is a color like any other. You're confusing blackness with darkness. Light bounces off objects to make color. The only lack of color is in lack of light.

  • Black is not a colour, it's just something that all other colours are absorbed into so that none of them are reflected. If anyone tells you black is a colour, they are officially an idiot.... or just uninformed.
