       Color::Library::Dictionary::VACCC - (VACCC) VisiBone Anglo-Centric
       Color Code

DESCRIPTION
       VisiBone	Anglo-Centric Color Code

       <http://www.visibone.com/vaccc/>

       Peter Hamer correctly points out	that this naming scheme	should not be
       confused	with names given to spectral colors, such as those that	follow
       the mnemonic "Roy G. Biv":  Red,	Orange,	Yellow,	Green, Blue, Indigo,
       Violet.	The distinction	is between the physical	nature of light	and
       the human perception of if.

       Humans can't distinguish	yellow light from a mixture of red and green
       light. That's due to the	color detection	mechanism of the human eye.
       The "cones" on the surface of the retina	respond	differentially to red,
       green and blue light.  (The "rods" on the other hand are	very sensitive
       to the brightness of light but can't distinguish	hues.)	 So computer
       phosphors don't attempt to transmit yellow light	at all.	 They simulate
       it by transmitting both red and green.  At least	humans can be fooled
       in this way.

       There's much more to light than the human eye can measure.   Besides
       the fact	that visible light is a	narrow subset of all the light coming
       from the	sun, there a whole dimension in	the variation of frequency and
       amplitude to which the eye is "tone deaf".  This	dimension is important
       to astronomers and chemists.  Their instruments measure aspects of
       light that can reveal, for example, the composition of a	star as	well
       as that of a material found at a	crime scene.

       Only when light is "for eyes only," your's or anyone's, can we simplify
       theory and measurement to varying quantities of red, green and blue.
       (Ever use a magnifying glass on your computer screen to see the little
       dots?   Watch that eyestrain!  Didn't I say a magnfying glass?!)	 So
       the physics of color and	the perception of color	are different
       disciplines.

       Another interesting distinction,	"hues" on a computer monitor as	well
       as in the mind of a user, follow	a circular series, as named above in
       the hue list.  Magenta and Pink are as close to each other in
       perception as Green and Teal.  But the physics of light is linear, a
       spectrum.   Violet in the color spectrum	is the furthest	thing from
       Red.  With real light, there's no such thing as magenta.	 The eye, when
       the red and blue	cones are stimulated "sees" magenta, but it doesn't
       correspond to any frequency of light, the way most other	hues do.

       Incidentally, the distinction between Red, Green, Blue (RGB) and	Cyan,
       Magenta,	Yellow (CMY or CMYK when Black is added	to the mix) is purely
       tactical.  Printers use light-absorbing ink and computer	monitors use
       light-transmitting phosphors.  The perfect cyan ink would completely
       absorb red light	and be completely transparent to green and blue.   The
       tactic of mixing	cyan and yellow	ink to get green is backwards from
       mixing red and green light to get yellow.  But the strategy is the
       same:  fooling human eyeballs by	manipulating the red, green and	blue
       light that ultimately hits the retina.
