illuminated darkness, not darkness The darkest blue, which would be an indigo or dark violet, is basically a blue. It’s certainly not a yellow or a green or red or orange.
It’s actually a much different way of thinking about light than Newton-style.
Instead of considering darkness something you can ignore, (oh, it’s ‘just’ the absence of light’), consider that light can’t be seen without the contrast of dark. it’s not woo: You need both of them to distinguish any pattern.
So, light and dark are necessary pairs So, where does color come from?
Colors arise between light and dark. That is, where light and dark meet.
If you only have light, you can’t see anything. If you only have dark, you can’t see anything.
