the colour of the waves

Is colour a property intrinsic to light, or defined by our perception, the result of complex neural processing of the signals received by the retinal light receptors…
…a question like this makes me value the way questions are written in Spanish, enclosed in question marks, like quotations are enclosed in quotation marks…

Professor Stephen Westland has a very interesting article The Rays are not Coloured where he presents his observations of colour perception, how colours can be perceived differently depending on the spatial colour distribution of a pattern.

I’ll write some wise things after I finish reading the Feynman Lectures on Physics (vol.1 chapters 35 and 36 on Color Vision)… ¿wait a minute, why is the color sensation dealt with in a Physics textbook if colour is not a physical property of light waves?…

welcome to my blog

Welcome to my new blog. At last I added the site to the blogosphere, using WordPress. The installation is as easy as the WordPress site says it is, in their installing guidelines. A few extra minutes to customize the layout to give to the blog the same look as the rest of the site, and voilà, new blog.

The WordPress Quick Start Guide is packed with great information about blogging, including a list of widely used plugins, like the one pixel out audio plugin
