MC: It’s really weird. All right. We need to take a quick break and get back with Adam Rogers talking about color, and it will be strange.
MC: Welcome back, our guest today is fellow WIRED journalist, Adam Rogers. Adam just wrote a recently published book called Complete Spectrum: How Color Science Made Us Today. Adam, as we’ve been discussing, people have been obsessed with colors since long before we had Photoshop and Pantone swatches. But even after all this time, we still do not fully understand all the ways in which race affects our brain. Since we are with you at this show, I think we have a responsibility to ask you about Dress Up.
I AM: After this 2015, I think, and it started to spread online. I feel like, ah, another meme, whatever. Then the editor-in-chief of the time Rob Capps came and landed next to me where I live. Said, “You see this thing wearing that?” I was like, “I know it’s funny. All right?” And he’s like, yeah, “I know, I can’t believe it.” I said, “I mean, obviously it’s blue.” And he looked at me and his eyes fainted. And her face went away and she went, “It’s white.” And I went, “Oh, nonsense.”
Upon hearing this, I realized that, oh my God, I am four hours late. Like, this is great. And I’m four hours late. And at that moment, Joe Brown, the editor of the page, then Joe ran like, not laughing, running, going, like, with his finger pointing at the science desk. And all I did was just look up, yell at him, “We have it.” I started making phone calls. And the reason I started phoning was that I had it, before I came to WIRED, when I was in a relationship at MIT for science writers, and I had a lot of damage to those relationships, the dyeing process and the way people think about colors and colors and how chemistry and science and neuroscience work. work.
That’s why I had a few people I could call who called me. And that day was a wonderful day because the coughing was on the window that we all looked at. These scenes are made up of tiny, tiny, tiny particles, red, green, and blue, and sometimes white light is also behind or near them that can make all possible colors, man you see, not so in 2015 when the game was not good. But many of the colors that people can see that they are portraying as bright, invisible, not the discounted colors, but the formal form, showed this image of a dress that became a very unusual thing, which is a two-dimensional illusion.
As a result, fictional characters exist, and you look at the textbooks of children and there is such a thing as a rabbit or a duck, while the cube moves forward or backward, sort of objects. And we call them bimodal because they have two different types. People see them in two different ways, but they often have a bimodal delusion of how your brain changes backwards. And the way the eye and brain look and shape are the same, they are connected. And they talk to each other, but it’s a different system.
They pass each other, but different systems. So this was this was an abimodal concept of the races at the time that was thought to be really rare. Now there has been a lot of research on people who use color simulations. That’s why you see them on Twitter all the time, and they’re fun, but they were rare. And as soon as you start your brain, it seems to have been selected, which one chose blue or chose white. You can’t see the other one, it just closes and it’s almost impossible to understand the person sitting next to you, who says, with the other type you just go, well, it’s not possible.
