I find colour fascinating in that there seems to be rich theories behind it in both art and science that I have trouble wrapping my head around.

For example, it seems as though there is nothing inherent about a certain wavelength of light that makes it primary or secondary or tertiary. Rather, the primariness of a colour is a function of the visual system perceiving it. We've got three cones in our eyes, one most responsive to wavelengths in the reddish part of the spectrum, one most responsive in the blueish, and one in the greenish. When light stimulates both the blue and green, for instance, the brain reasons that the reason for this is that we must be perceiving a wavelength of light kinda between the two, so it shows us yellow. This is what makes RBG (hey!) the primary colours of light.

What I don't understand is why the primary colours of pigment are red, yellow, and blue, rather than red, green, and blue. Pigment and light seem to act differently because one is subtractive while the other is additive, but I have no idea why it should be the case that it matters whether the light reaching our eyes was emitted or reflected by something. Especially confusing when in print, the primary colours used are cyan, magenta, and yellow, which are slightly different from blue, red, and yellow, and are the secondary colours of light. I mean, I understand that pigments absorb certain wavelengths of light, so the colour you see is the wavelength that was reflected rather than absorbed, but in the end, both subtractive and additive are transmitting some wavelengths of light to your eye regardless, so why does it matter how it got there?

There's also some interesting shit about how violet and purple are technically different colours.

Violet occurs in the spectrum. In the spectrum, the different colours aren't really mixtures of light, there are single wavelengths of light. So, pure orange in a rainbow isn't a mix of red and yellow light, it is simply orange light. The reason we see orange when we mix red and yellow light is that our brain is going "whatever light this is, it is stimulating both my red and yellow receptors a lot, so it's gotta be a colour in between that overlaps both receptor ranges." It fills it in with orange.

But violet occurs at the end of the spectrum. After violet, we reach into the range of light we cannot perceive, ultraviolet and beyond.

So, when a mix of red and blue light seems to equally stimulate our red and blue cones, but not our green, it's a little odd for the brain, because green is between red and blue, and whatever wavelength that stimulates red and blue should also stimulate our green cones. The brain kind of throws up its hands and fills it in with "purple," which is similar to violet. So, purple is what our brains perceive when it gets a mix of red and blue light, and doesn't really have an electromagnetic wavelength to itself. Violet, however, is a region in the spectrum, but it's not "between red and blue," because unlike our colour wheels, the electromagnetic spectrum isn't cyclical, but linear. After violet, there's only invisible light, and before red, there is only invisible light.

So, tl;dr: purple is a lie, pretty much just fake violet our brains made to trick us.

You can totally hear the sunburst on Gish. Except for "Rhinoceros," which sounds more cream.
