Re: I have heard that the reason a thing is a certain color is because that is the part of the spectrum it does not absorb but reflects.
Yep. According to “Dr. Google” (my way of being too lazy to attribute a source) …
“The colors we see are the wavelengths that are reflected or transmitted. For example, a red shirt looks red because the dye molecules in the fabric have absorbed the wavelengths of light from the violet/blue end of the spectrum. Red light is the only light that is reflected from the shirt.”
Conversation in the Banana Grove Restaurant …
Adano: “What color do you think of?”
Adano: “It’s resentment.”
Woman: “My psychic says I have a beautiful green aura.”
Adano makes his classic “I told you so” gesture to me.
Re: But I don’t see why an ice cube wouldn’t melt. That seems to be about temperature rather than light.
If an ice cube were capable of perfect transparency and if air were capable of perfect transparency, the ice cube would not melt by radiation (transfer of heat by electromagnetic waves). Of course, in the “real world,” convection (movement of heat by a fluid such as water or air) and conduction (transfer of energy from one molecule to another by direct contact) would melt the ice cube.
Actinic rays (cold rays) act differently than heat rays.
Light shining through a red glass will heat an object faster than light shining through an orange glass and so forth along the spectrum.
The same principle holds for almost everything in physics. For example, pure black has no reality whatsoever. The only thing we get in the “real world” is shades of black.
Re: And does this mean that the more for-public-consumption aspects of the color spectrum in the Yes-No-Maybe book still hold? Or is that only a surface level explanation? Or, is there a whole contrary explanation?
They not only hold, they’re the raison d’être we wear the weekly spectrum of colors. (Suzy speaks fluent French, so she laughs every time I try to say that word.)
Immunity is based on SEVEN. Adano taught it. So did Revici. The circaseptan rhythm is well-known to chronobiologists.
“One to seven days is the condition of acute immunity. If you don’t treat an injury in seven days, it becomes chronic and harder to treat,” according to Adano.
Wearing the colors of the week puts our traumas IN FLOW by coordinating our social week with the biological week.
Revici called the seven-day rhythm the “lipidic phase,” occurring in the first six to nine days, with seven days as the optimum defense response.
The fast reacting person is vulnerable to death if this defense mechanism occurs faster than six days, and the slow reactor is vulnerable to the same if the reaction occurs after nine days.
Seven days is PERFECT IMMUNITY.
The Judaic culture is allegedly the only culture that ever came up with a seven-day week, according to Jeremy Campbell in his 1987 book, Winston Churchill’s Afternoon Nap: A wide-awake inquiry into the human nature of time.
We rotate the colors of our clothes and the colors of our thoughts to evolve from HUE-MAN to MAN. This was not Adano’s original idea. He just passed it along to us by the Grace of God.
