what about eyes that can see more of the electromagnetic spectrum?
No | rather not | I dunno | I guess | Sure | Yes | FUCK yes | Oh god you don’t even know
I HAVE BEEN THINKING SO MUCH ABOUT THIS
Both the infrared and ultraviolet ranges are much wider than the visible spectrum; consequently they should be considered as having more primary colors, right? Like, waaaaay more. I think I computed something like 60? I did that a while ago…
But like. That actually just defines the dimensionality of color-space, right? We have 3 and that’s why we classically have a cube of possible colors (well, sort of). I’m fairly certain that removing saturation/brightness suggests that the dimensionality of the hue-space would be (number of primary colors) - 2. So the number of colors you see is really exponential in the number of primary colors, in some sense.
Really, at some point, it becomes more reasonable to think of it as every point you see singing its own song, all songs that you see-hear simultaneously.
…I’m more or less supposing I have access to extra brain power to process all that though.
