Lawsonomy Volume One
Color manifests itself to the sense of sight as sound manifests itself to the sense of hearing or odor manifests itself to the sense of smell or flavor manifests itself to the sense of taste or pressure manifests itself to the sense of feeling.
There are as many different shades of color as there are different particles of density.
As each body or substance is made up of innumerable particles, so each of those particles is of a different shade of color and the various combinations of those particles produce different colors or shades, just as the different combinations of particles make up the different forms of Density.
The spectroscope shows that the different particles that make up light are of different colors. If a spectroscope could be made that would show the different particles that make up the particles of light, then that would show a greater variety of shades and colors than can be discerned in the greater particles of light.
All matter contains color. But man's sense of sight was developed for use in daylight and therefore light must be reflected from substances to the eye in order that he may distinguish the different objects about him.
The colors which manifest themselves to the eyesight of man are the shades reflected from the object seen plus the shades of the surrounding substances plus the shades from the light itself.
All objects contain particles of density which contain various shades of color. These particles retain their color whether light is thrown on them or not. But when the light strikes them the colors manifested to the eye are a combination of the different compositions of colors of the object, the air which surrounds it and the light which is reflected from it.
No matter what the color of light is to the naked eye, it will be changed by the different substances it encounters between its source and the eye.
The air, or the difference in the particles that float about in the air, will change the color of the light by mixing with it.
The white light from the Sun can be changed to dark shades by passing through dark clouds or the light from the Sun can be changed in color by passing through blue, red, green or smoked glasses.
Just as light is composed of particles of many colors, so all other substances are composed of many colors and it is the mixing of these different substances that changes their shades.
The sight of man has been developed to distinguish different shades of color through light but it is possible that there are different forms of living things that can distinguish the different shades of color through darkness.
If man's eye could be made variable and he could see the different particles in the air within a foot of the eye a kaleidoscopic changing of colors would be presented to his sight that would astonish him.
If man's sense of sight could be made variable so that he could see from normal to about one hundred million quadrillion times less in size than normal he would not only be able to see living formations never dreamed of before but there would be as he went down and up the scale such a continual changing of colors as would stupefy his mental faculties.
