    Try these simple experiments.

    1.         Stare at a Yellow coloured shape for about 30 seconds and then look at a white sheet. Make a note of what you see. Answer 1A

    Carry out the same experiment again, but this time make a note of the background colour surrounding the shape. Answer 1B

    Carry out the second experiment again but whilst still noting the background colour, note the colour of the shape. Answer 1C

    2.         Carry out the same experiments again but using a Red shape. Answers 2A, 2B, 2C

    1. Carry out the same experiments again but using a Dark Blue shape. Answers 3A, 3B, 3C.

    Also carry out the same experiments, but instead of looking at a white sheet, just close your eyes.

    It is essential that you carry out these experiments yourself without any input from me, otherwise I would be rightly accused of leading you.

    The apparently strange results are due to the mechanics involved in the structure of the eye.

    It could be advantageous to everyone (including me) if your results were published on this website so that the results would be available to all, and I could proceed to the next stage with a some independent experimental results.

    Sadly, I have not received a single reply on this posting in 12 months.
