I remember being so confused in art classes about it. I never could make sense of color wheels and such outside of basic mixing light/mixing paint differences. I look at the house and I see two colors: one for the trim and one for the main part. When you paint it, it’s the same two colors. But when shadows go across, which they always do, or you approach from different angles, they actually change colors, something a camera can pick up but my brain can’t.

I made a flurry of posts at the time; really helped move me away from the “physics has all answers” towards “pay attention to how things ‘seem’ because sometimes that’s all you have”.

hanks for bringing him up. Now I’ll have him in mind as I continue looking into what I’m looking into — and as I’ve been back into computational theory of mind zone, I think he makes for good grounding so I don’t fly away in that area again
