The Color Of Life

How to explain color to someone who has never been able to see it before.  How do you think you would explain it? What is this thing that breaths life into the air, this thing that can create a mood and emotion from a simple image freeze framed into our minds at a particular moment in time? This small thing that so many of us sadly take for granted. Their are many people and even other creatures out there right now that cannot see this magnificent illusion named color. Literally no visual hues or pigments, just black, white and the various shades of grays that come far and in between the two voids.  How would you even begin? The scientific facts of light fragments or would you start with the basics? Red is like blood, a fine wine, a deep romantic rose laying there in the candle light. Blue like the oceans and skies. Yellow and a baby chick, or a dandelion ripe with sunlight.  How do you explain this generalized analogy to something or someone who has never experienced  it for themselves? You could cross reference all the shades of gray that they see with what shade it would be on the color chart. But the only issue with that is the colors all have complimentary colors that share similar shades with each other.

This was just a question that popped into my head....  i'm not quite sure how to answer it yet. I'm mainly just curious, that's all it is. I thirst for new knowledge of how it works..... how this life is suppose to work. I understand everyone suffers, and that it is part of life it's how we learn. if we didn't make mistakes we wouldn't have discovered anything.  we would have just waited around for it to come to us.  we probably would have died off as a species if it weren't for an abnormal grow of brain mass in our frontal lobe where the initiative or will comes from. Without initiative or will nothing would survive... it wouldn't care either way.  We evolved to learn.  It is basic instincts to be curious. without the curiosity there would require no will.  so the two factors, will and curiosity, are what make us want to survive.... it is that thirst, greed, or want, or even hope and faith that helps us on our way.... its all the same thing no matter what you call it.  but if you want to do something... like really want it .... and try to your out most to get it ... like you actually have to try, no just wishing it will happen..... just going out and getting your hands dirty so you can sleep sound knowing you did this for yourself, because you believed in you, not some invisible god or deity or some flashy neighbors or some cute chick you want to impress.... you did it because you wanted it..... that is the pursuit of happiness.  do live you dream .... to live in harmony with the earth and those around them, not to fight amongst themselves and destroy the earth we walk on.....

I don't know I guess it's just rubbish... there are far too many people out there who just don't care, like they are so completely and hopelessly indifferent it's painful and sad to see. I read the news and it seems worse and worse.... more violent ways to harm a complete stranger are built everyday and can be sold to your children on the sidewalks of a busy city street by the friendliest little terrorist you've ever met... lies and bias irrational hearsay spread through corporate networks bleeding through television screens into the children's eyes and lungs, now they eat breath and shit the corporate's greed for all things fake.. little girls who should be playing are locked away for fear that someone will snatch her away little boys can't even trust their troop leaders or priests....    what the fuck is going on people?  why would hurt a child? there are people in this world that can't even have them and you're taking them and defiling them with your disgusting corroded fake ass form of moralistic justice. if you harm a child you should never be allowed to be part of human society again.  to be human is to protect your heir, that is life to propagate and to protect that offspring no matter what..... that is your future.  if you harm or damage a child you are damaging  the future no matter how small you may seem to think it would matter that is still one small piece to the great puzzle and if any pieces are damaged they won't fit as well and things will be harder on the whole of the group.  we need to learn to not damage each other or the things around us.  when we can do this i think it will be a better place for future generations to come.  

i'm tired and most of this probably doesn't make any sense ... but no worries it's not supposed to, i just wanted it out of my head for the night :o)
