there are different degrees of what is real and what is not with anything. thus NEVER SPEAK IN ABSOLUTES!!!
Especially on a forum thread based entirely on opinion.
P.S. I'm not even taking into account people who are color blind. These people have a completely different view of your "rules" for color.
EDIT: noticed i spelled PHYSICS as PSYCHICS
And the thing about purple:
Although you can mix two colors to make one other color, each visible color has its own energy level, and depending on that energy level, shows the shade. Lets take a stove burner for example, what color does it make when it gets hot? Red, because the energy being transferred to the atoms make the electrons go into an excited state causing them to leap (energy to cause an electron to jump is called a Quanta). There are 3 levels of energy, n=1, n=2, n=3. n=1 is the first energy level and that is the ground state where an electron can be found orbiting. But when it jumps to an energy level, then falls back to ground state, it gives off an energy in the form of color, photons (E=hf). Based on this, the energy exerted shows color, so if you put that burner at extreme temperatures, it will go all the way through the EM spectrum, so if you put in enough energy it would show purple, the highest energy level of visible light. Then it goes into depth of photons and whatever, and so on, leading into Quantum Physics, which I don't fully understand (light is a particle, NO, IT IS A WAVE!!! HOW CAN IT BE BOTH!!! *mental breakdown, bangs head on keyboard*) I don't want to argue with Neils Bohr, Ernest Rutherford or Einstein either. But that is the basic of it. One thing, purple paint absorbs all other colors except purple, making the paint purple. Same with all other colors except White, which is why some consider it not a color, kinda like Pluto not being a planet.
Now if I am wrong, please anyone correct me, as far as I know that is how it goes.
