Color and Perception | The Rabbit Hole

Category:  The Rabbit Hole

Are colors fixed qualities, regardless of who is doing the looking? Deepak Chopra addresses the fluid nature of perception, so dependent on the perspective from which reality is experienced.
We may all agree that what we see is "red" or "blue" or "green," but who's to say these words describe exactly the same experience for everyone? And how about for a dog or a bee? Perception is relative, and reality, as it turns out, may be mind-made.

  • The electromagnetic spectrum is real and continuous in locations we have never experienced. The electrochemical spectrum is also real and continuous in locations we have never experienced. The gravity and quantum gravity spectrums are real and continuous in locations we have never experienced. While it is true that the light spectra frequencies we "call" Red in English, Roja in Spanish, etc. exist with or without us, this is limited by our ability to see only certain frequencies, hear only certain frequencies, smell and distinguish only certain chemicals, and our touch and taste likewise are limited. Elephants, Cetaceans (whales,etc.) dogs, cats, rabbits, practically all other mammals, can hear, smell, taste, and see in ranges beyond our limitations. Cetaceans in particular can hear in 3D. It is also true that Quantum Entanglement connects everything in the Cosmos through the non-dual background that every particle disappears into and reappears from on the Quantum Scale as they wink in and out of existence on this physical plane. So, who's Mind is doing this reality (perception) creating thing? Humans? Whales? God?

  • Many moons ago, I was in the dark night of the soul or how I now understand the dark night of the "EGO". I went through many questions that I couldn`t find an answer too. One of them was: Is there anything that is not transient? ....I just got my answer, consciousness is not transient. I literally had this experience the Buddha talks about how our lifetime unravels in rapid speed. It scared me very much back than. I would eventually let it all go and let life flow as it wants since I can`t change any of it.

  • "When you are in a state of detachment your mind stops being frantic, restless, and obsessed. The threat of sin and evil decreases. God stops being a person, either benign or threatening. Attachment to material things lessens. "Us vs. them" thinking stops being so appealing. There is less need need for self-importance. At the other extreme, there is less need to see oneself as a victim. Issues of social status, money, and possessions no longer seem so important.Love is less confined to people who love you back or occupy your sexual fantasies."

  • Latest Medjugorje Message, December 2, 2013 - Apparitions to Mirjana http://www.medjugorje.ws/en/videos/medjugorje-apparition-mirjana-december-2013/ “Dear children, With a motherly love and a motherly patience I am looking at your ceaseless wandering and how lost you are. That is why I am with you. I desire to help you to first find and come to know yourself, so that, then, you would be able to recognize and to admit everything that does not permit you to get to know the love of the Heavenly Father, honestly and wholeheartedly. My children, the Father comes to be known through the cross. Therefore, do not reject the cross. Strive to comprehend and accept it with my help. When you will be able to accept the cross you will also understand the love of the Heavenly Father; you will walk with my Son and with me; you will differ from those who have not come to know the love of the Heavenly Father, those who listen to Him but do not understand Him, those who do not walk with Him - who have not come to know Him. I desire for you to come to know the truth of my Son and to be my apostles; that, as children of God, you may rise above the human way of thinking and always, and in everything, seek God's way of thinking, anew. My children, pray and fast that you may be able to recognize all of this which I am seeking of you. Pray for your shepherds and long to come to know the love of your Heavenly Father, in union with them. Thank you. ”

  • The most amazing and the hardest relationship we have in this life it`s with ourselves. It`s a learning process all the way. After years and years of listening, reading and even attending my Church, experience on life, disappointments, mistakes, etc. I just got to one conclusion not to long ago.... And it is. : Believe in yourself, have faith in your abilities, we have the power in ourselves if we have faith. We are not alone, and it will be so naive and ridiculous to pretend there is no one above us; there is someone much more bigger than anyone, and that someone wants you to be happy and successful. We just need to turn to Him, and believe we have all the blessings waiting for us, and many blessings we already have, blessings that even maybe we forgot to say..Thanks. Let the past behind, and start the new beggining, you are blessed, maybe you just need to know it and to believe it. Believe in God and believe in yourself, visualize yourself being successful ...and it will happen.

  • the asthma I suffer with is definately from the termidor. I cannot wish it away or ignore it.perception and reality both exist. my perception of the weight I lost in two weeks time because of the exposure was that I didn't need an extreme weight loss and seeing my true self again after losing 15 lbs. made me feel fragile and scared.The reality of my expereince caused me to feel insulted while others were enjoying the way I look, I was in danger of dying and doing all of the remediation work myself.I gained some of the weight back after two months of carbo-loading for the electrolytes.The high-def look is not worth risking death.I had never lost weight before without trying and it did not feel normal or exciting.I am using what I've learned on the 21 Day Yoga Challenge with Deepak and Oprah to get me through the ordeal. Thank You Deepak and Oprah-Bless You.

  • I really love the rabbit hole metaphor. Maybe poets and scientists get the same information in very different forms. So where a scientist infers the existence of a black hole, from which you cannot return to your previous reality, a poet sees a rabbit hole, which takes you to a new paradigm. Deepak led a very lively discussion on these themes many years ago in Oxford, England.

  • When a new born opens eyes, he can not see nor feel, then slowly he starts looking at things- the colors come later and feel of different textures come much later then comes the conditioning introduced by those around him or her. During the the said conditioning process"nos" are many "yes" are too little. Such conditioning and borrowed perceptions not only curtail the creativity but brings the conflict within.

  • ..."Leaves are not green."...~Alan Watts ..."When you don't name things anymore, you start seeing them. Because say when a person says 'I see a leaf,' immediately, one thinks of a spearhead-shaped thing outlined in black and filled in with flat green. No leaf looks like that. No leaves--leaves are not green. That's why Lao-Tzu said 'the five colors make a man blind, the five tones make a man deaf,' because if you can only see five colors, you're blind, and if you can only hear five tones in music, you're deaf. You see, if you force sound into five tones, you force color into five colors, you're blind and deaf. The world of color is infinite, as is the world of sound. And it is only by stopping fixing conceptions on the world of color and the world of sound that you really begin to hear it and see it."...~Alan Watts

One of them was: Is there anything that is not transient? ....I just got my answer, consciousness is not transient. I literally had this experience the Buddha talks about how our lifetime unravels in rapid speed. It scared me very much back than. I would eventually let it all go and let life flow as it wants since I can`t change any of it.

  • We create our own reality and we share our realities with others, and all of those interconnections, those relationships, create the collective reality. What`s awesome is that this reality is never fixed, it changes constantly. When your perception changes, the world changes. If you want a better world, change your perception from within. Open up. Learn. Teach. Love. Play.

  • This is not depressing at all. Depression is an effect of realizing the difference between what you think reality is and what reality actually is. It is not that reality is a lie but rather what the nature of reality is. You and I and colors are not less real if they quantum-ly are nonexistent. It`s just that their nature is different that what intuition might have told us. Cheer up and enjoy the ride.

  • Are colors fixed qualities, regardless of who is doing the looking? +Deepak Chopra addresses the fluid nature of perception, so dependent on the perspective from which reality is experienced. We may all agree that what we see is "red" or "blue" or "green," but who`s to say these words describe exactly the same experience for everyone? And how about for a dog or a bee? Perception is relative, and reality, as it turns out, may be mind-made.

  • As an artist I can promise you that colors, or at least the essential quality of them, are always in transition as they change in direct reference to each other. The same yellow can resonate freedom and trust or pain and rejection depending on its juxtaposition to other colors. When I refer to "essential quality of color" I speak of that power of transformation which each color is blessed with, whilst still wholly and continually changing. The power remains, while the story they tell is in constant vibrational flux. Just the same as the human soul. Sometimes red and black actually "leap frog" each other, trading their commonly accepted "reputations." Sometimes they serve to point up each other's more typical character and require very little new thinking on the part of the viewer. And at other times they just sit down at a N.Y.steak house and share some ale and a good flank steak! Just like us!

  • Hi Deepak, I stumbled across a divine culture that was created by a man called Marshall B. Rosenberg. He introduces a new language, the voice of the heart. I call it divine because the members of this culture live in an enviroment that enables them to express the higher part of there beeing. Giving a focus to your and other needs rather to their thoughts and feelings is a Great new way of interacting with myself and others. In philosophy he calls GOD as the beloved divine energy, Thanks Elishai.

  • Yes, a lot of reality for humans is based on perception but, there are cases where a human`s perception won`t matter. Even if life has no color, smell, or touch, like in an event of a natural disaster such as a hurricane or tornado your life can be taken completely from you whether your conscious or not.
