Re: Photon 2.0

The slight difference is because the 3D scene is using lighting calculations, so it's not going to be exact. I left it that way because the colors are already distorted enough due to using RGB monitors, so even making it exact wouldn't really make it true to reality Could you add the hex color valu...

Re: Photon 2.0

When I go to the max value on either R, G or B with the other two being gray, the resulting color does not match the color in the wheel but is distinctly more white-ish (red becomes rosa). But if I do the same on the CMY side, the resulting color is pretty much the same as the one in the wheel (cya...

Re: Photon 2.0

SoverT has made some updates to the Photon v2 simulator, so it does not cut off on the right side for smaller screens and has added Black, Gray and White preset buttons. Photon v2.0 Simulator Couple things remain: Determining how many natural units are involved with the color sliders. When I did my ...

Re: Photon 2.0

One of the things I noticed when playing with the photon simulator was that if you start with gray and just slide the yellow-blue slider to blue, the resulting color is "sky blue" -- at least what I perceive as the same color as the sky. However, if I slide it to yellow, I don't get the color of the...

Re: Photon 2.0

Photon 2.0 demonstration is here, showing a way to express color as 3D angular velocity instead of frequency, according to the concepts proposed in this thread. The rotating disks demonstrate the angular displacement (not speed) and the box at the bottom is the perceived color from the rotations. Ph...

Re: Photon 2.0

Wow this has lots of food for thought, great work. So in a nutshell are you saying that the three rotational yin planes are three colours (RGB) and it's the spin interacting between them in the photon that creates the mix of colours we see? Yes, but the direction of rotation with give either RGB or...

Octaves

With the photon being a quaternion, it is basically a magnetic rotation. As such, the rotations can recurse just like atoms do, by octaves (like the skins of an onion). Between unit speed and unit frequency, we find 4 octaves: 1, 2, 4, 8 (doubling) with the far ends at 128, 64, 32, 16 (halving): C: ...

Organic Color Wheel

I've gone through a lot of research by artists and researchers, ignoring the phosphor-based color system and Newton, and a new kind of color wheel shows up--one based in Nature (almost identical to Goethe's research): ColorWheel2.png It follows a very different pattern, a RGV and BMY model. Of cours...

Name that Color!

Here's another problem I ran in to... a game of "Name That Color!" The colors we see have had different names over the centuries. Go back a couple hundred years, and what we now call "blue" was called "violet." Believe it or not, there was no standardization until the advent of color television , wh...

Photon 2.0

I have developed a new model of the photon, based on dimensional stability and addressing both the additive/white and subtractive/black models (RGB, CMY). Per Nehru's analysis of long ago, dimensional stability can only occur with THREE dimensions. Less than three will break down to zero, more will ...
