What if we're all color blind, and tree's are actually yellow

What if the colour you got taught to be green, looks in reality for everyone totally different... but we all agreed that this colour should be called green.

I know that this is just a silly philosophical question, but science has strongly suggested that we do see the same colors, as we associate certain colors as being safe or dangerous before we're taught what they are.

Actually, weirdly enough men and women perceive colors differently. It goes back to hunter-gatherer times. Also, women are said to have a larger color vocabulary than men because of evolutionary and biological factors.

What you mean, aren't those all colours?

One of the biological advantages women have over men is their eye sight. This wasn't a result of survival behavior, but more of a beneficial mutation due to women having XX chromosomes, while men have XY. All female chromosomes have an extra leg of blueprints on how to construct a human correctly, and this extra leg also happens to contain extra instructions on how to build eyeballs. Due to this extra stability in building ones eyeballs, it's extremely rare for a female to have any form of color blindness, on top of that it is only possible for women to develop Tetrachromacy, where they can perceive a fourth set of color combinations. This isn't to be confused with seeing colors that don't have names yet, but women with tetrachromacy will see things being much more vibrant and perceive things, that are thought to be colorless, filled with reds, blues, greens, whatever. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetrachromacy

My weak eye interprets colors as warmer and brighter than my strong eye. I think it's got to do with years of squinting it shut to protect it in the sun, whereas I had to keep the strong eye open in order to still see. Alternatively the strong eye was patched when my eyes were still growing (?) So it either developed differently or the weak eye is more light damaged and the pretty colored world is just a nice side effect. I am not an ophthalmologist

I have the exact same thing, but no squinting or patching history.

Speaking of colours, I remember it was here that I first learnt about CMYK. Until my late teens I only knew about RGB xD

Also, hi! Hope everyone's doing well :) How long before I disappear for ANOTHER two years? ¬_¬

I'd actually forgotten my trip here last March xD Yeah, it's seemed pretty quiet for a while, I was honestly worried it wouldn't be around this time. Glad you're doing alright dude :)

Hey avian-reader *waves hand* ...... *my own of course*


Why is it that social medias feel suddenly so narrow?
At the beginning when you start at some platform ...everything is so vast and full of stuff and then you slowly develop this feeling of narrowness.
Unspoken rules, your own filter bubble, being a freak under freaks (... being nice counts as freak as it seems), not squeaking and heart-ing every cute character...

I know, I discovered those artist through the reposts/retweets/retoots of others ...but I feel like I'm imprisoned into a clique of "friends", and I'm not invited.
I can't really interact but my taste and world view gets narrowed. And I hate this feeling.

Maybe it's time to clean up my list of who I follow and add some others.

This is not a vent but my thought off the top of my head

I feel this too. Most interactions I see on Twitter, etc are not engaging to me, they're either too negative, too meaningless (I'm not into squeeing myself xP) or deal with fandoms I'm not into, and as a result I feel cut off. I know that there are many people out there whom I'd find very interesting, but with the way networks work, getting to them would require braving that unengaging territory, which I lack the energy to do.

I've had the most luck with the webcomics, pixel art, and game development communities on Twitter and Mastodon, people in those seem far more willing to talk about those topics frequently, and are great about sharing each other's work so it's easier to find new people.

A related thing I've noticed is humour matters. One's sense of humour and how one expresses it can really change the tone of any interaction, and make it easier or harder to find people to interact with. Some people out there make fantastic work and informative posts, but I just cannot follow them because I find their attempts at humour abrasive, and I've made friends with some people with whom I have minimal interests in common because our jokes click. On the flipside, I'm sure my own humour has turned many people off from interacting with me.

To this day, I am still saddened by the fact that during that oddly specific boom of dark and edgy live-action adaptions of fairy tales in the early 2010's, there was never a grim n' gritty Three Little Pigs. Possible involving were-pigs fighting werewolves and starring Robert Downey Jr.

Every time I see footage of Apex Legends, I feel reminded that we were this close to the greatness of EA potentially shutting down, ending the life of one of the worst video game publishers in the world.
