Black and White
Before you go off the handle by reading the title of this article, calm down and chill, this isn’t about racism or hate. There are enough articles floating the internet on those subject. This article is about black and white. Our world as we see it through our own eyes and the perceptions associated with what we think, believe and act upon.
The difference between black and white are miles apart. There are equal perceptions of equality or inequality of its value to see things, persons or objects through a prism without color. It is well known that in optics, a prism is a transparent optical element with a flat, polished surface that refracts light.
Prisms can be made from any material that is transparent. The most common prisms are glass, plastic and fluorite. Fluorite is a gas and refracts light to a higher degree such as infrared wavelengths.
Prism can be used to break up light. Prisms can divide, separate the colors of the rainbow. Prisms are powerful tools and can be used to alter perceptions. Like is a prism, it can alter facts as we known them to exist. Prisms can be biases that has the potential, the ability and the power to create a different perception.
How do we differentiate the difference between black and white? How do we tell them apart or create different definitions for what we see? Is that a force stronger than we are aware of and ignore? Do prisms cause us to discriminate colors if it has the ability and power to create different perceptions?
Prisms aren’t human. They are materials. No emotions, no intelligence and no sensory receptors. They aren’t divided by race, religions, nationalities and color. They create colors from different colors. This is done naturally and by the mere power of science, not humans, so there are no control mechanisms attached to what you see.
Prisms diversify black and white and turn it into something else – colors. There are no disparities because there are no rules to follow. Everything is natural and not man made. If the prism is moved in any direction, these colors change yet they come from the same exact source as before it was changed. So you moved the position and you change the perception. So as the world moves on its axis, the perceptions change constantly in all reality.
Prisms reflect yet they divide and change perceptions. Black and White can be changed without doing anything but move the position of the prism. Interesting concept and scientifically sound. One can argue, a man’s hands can change the position. Another could argue, nature’s own forces, the wind, the rain and the heat can change the prisms position. Which is stronger? This is up to the perception expected or the outcome desired. Regardless, it is not humanly constructed, manufactured or created.
Prisms create gaps in perceptions. They don’t change the original content but they change the perception. What we don’t know is if you move the prism, what will it create next? That is the wonder of prisms and the world of black and white. It is after all is said, just a perception.
