vision vs. perception. let’s talk of irony. royal purple comes from about the ugliest creature ever…yet is prized for it’s beauty….and rarity – yet as so little of the substance dyestuff’s in the sea critter, it takes a high multiplicity of these creatures to obtain a suitable amount of dyestuffs.
a color wheel exists where we can compare and contrast all the colors we perceive. this is a rare moment when I doubt a single person wouldn’t find it rather neat that thee most boring subject of school, algebra, is in fact rather dang neat when we realize a color wheel makes use of an inverse of the colors as numeric values within a range of the electromagnetic spectrum as values flipped between 0 and 1. yes, it can sound nap-inducingly boring. yet, here are two ways algebra is damned neat and YOU KNOW IT”S TRUE…oh crap, I’m going to start singing milli vanilla and we all know they didn’t actually sing millie vanilli…big scandal.
Irony is much of life is like this too, it’s not so fun when it’s obvious…who, but the poor author, rereads the who-done-its? when the mystery’s gone? who want relationship leftovers ON PRINCIPLE not the actual person. Who really stands for their principles at work when the mortgage’s due? How many gush at the love and beauty onscreen when they use pancake makeup to hide the 30 years of cocaine wrinkles and lots of cash must trade hands for the greatest show on earth?
and while we’re on tho irony, how come the most powerful damned things ever….are always illusions or invisible?
