      no that's fricking wrong. red green and blue fully stimulate your eye cones, where colors in between partially stimulate each of RGB cones
      what you "see" is electric signals from eyes. what they detect is based on R G B cones activation.

      You're correct because the eyes see in Rod(colorless), and Red, Green, Blue cones. The pigments in your eyes literally change shape and then are detected and then reformed back into the original protein shape to be recycled.

    And yet, cyan and yellow are considered "real" colors while magenta is considered "fake" or "made up." It makes no sense at all. I agree our entire model for color vision is probably just straight up fake and gay due to this obvious inconsistency.

        In point of fact, yellow and cyan can be created by a single wavelength due to how our eyes process median colors. Magenta can't, as wavelengths aren't a circular spectrum, and is thus more analagous to bluish yellow and reddish green. Magenta is able to fill an otherwise unoccupied gap so we can see it.

      There's no such thing as a fake color. Anyone who says that is using the wrong words.

      What they actually mean is that cyan and yellow are pure colors, in that you can produce them with photons of a single energy, while magneta requires photons of two different energies. In other words, you can't say "this wavelength of light looks like magneta."

      Maybe it's a quirk of how our cones work. But regardless, color perception is mental, not physical. No experience of color is physically explicable.

        what? cyan and yellow can be made with either single photons and dual photons. it is exactly the opposite of "pure" color, they can be something or other, nothing pure in two-faced colors anon.
        when you see magenta that's what you get. there's no other possible combination of photons resulting in magenta, it's "pure" that way, not two-faced. magenta is as honest as reg green and blue.

        Funny how Red is associated with strength and power despite having the lowest photon energy out of all colors, whereas Blue is associated with peace and calmness even though it carries quite the punch of photon energy compared to Red.

          listen, I was asking HOW do we fix it? two more detector cones for cyan/yellow photons? and reduce the spectrum of the other RGB cones? this way we detect yellow and cyan photons, and the extra information helps differentiate between yellow/cyan and the mix for both as we see them now.
          would two more cones for yellow/cyan photons work? and would we start seeing new colors?

      I'm just getting into philosophy, can someone please explain the qualia hate to me? As I understand it, qualia is just a word meaning "a specific instance of a mental state." So a qualia of red would just be some individuals subjective experience, based on their specific interpretation of their own sense data of some red object.

      Qualia would exist as a specific orientation of some individuals brain which renders to that specific mental state they are experiencing.

      Am I missing something? This seems to align well with materialism, per my very limited understanding.

        Basically, qualia operates on a different plane of reality. That's why there is the hate.

        Imagine you are living in the quantum world. Not the crazy quantum realm, the mundane one. Electrons whiz around randomly, there's a proton and quark or two, it's pretty normal. Suddenly some guy runs up to you and starts ranting about "Molecules". "Proteins". "Cells". "Animals". All kinds of crazy shit, allegedly created out of higher level interactions from quantum material. How do we prove these things exist? Well, you kind of can't. All of the quantum level physics doesn't play nice with the macroscopic level physics; despite the macroscopic level being entirely dependent on the quantum. So ultimately the scientists of the quantum level decide that macroscopic physics is Russel's Teapot, and therefore doesn't exist. And when somebody from the macroscopic realm splits the atom, it's just our minds playing tricks on us.

    Don't think that we are just going around looking at single wavelength light all the time.
    A red apple isn't red because it is giving of photons of exactly 650nm. When light hits the skin of an apple, that is a very complex interaction between trillions of atoms and bonds. This results in the reflection of photons with many different wavelengths. This contributes to an overall waveform. When that waveform hits your eyes, it just so happens to stimulate the long cones mostly, making you experience red. Lemons have a different chemical makeup to apples. And it too produces a whole bunch of wavelengths that make up a waveform. And this waveform happens to stimulate the long and medium cones of you eyeballs, producing yellow. It isn't that hard to imagine pink or magenta objects that can stimulate long and short, but not medium cones. Because there are only a few things out there that produce single wavelength photons.

    If you go to an older part of your town at night, you will probably notice that the street lights glow with a sickly, off yellow color. These are sodium vapor lamps, and they make light by passing an electric current through vaporised sodium. It induces a quantum energy level jump specific to that atom, and that jump produces light of exactly 589nm consistently. It's a lamp that produces a single wavelength, which isn't practical in most cases, but was a cheap way to light streets back in the old days.

          I agree (though some have more than us). It is not about the variety of colors they perceive, it's about how their brain maps colors to signals from eyes. They can use our red for what we see as green. We don't know how their brain maps colors to photons (or mix of them). We only know the spectrum in which they see. Our red does not exist out there in "red" photons, our brains make them look red.
