    I do believe that another colour may exist, but I am positive that without actually seeing it we have no idea of what it looks like, i.e. we cannot imagine how it might look (and mix together existing colours to create it). This is because the human mind is based on experience.

    Realises this was not actually the question.
    yeah could be a colour that we cant even imagine because it has never entered the brain. also ppl who are colour blind may well be seeing the real colours

    perhaps all the sensations we cannot feel, taste, etc. yet would bring us bliss

    It depends on how you define reality. Colour is simply a way of distinguishing between objects; used by our brains to build complex images. It is our interpretation of light waves of varying wavelength. I think it's arbitrary that we dont utilise sound waves to form some kind of contrasting image (incidentally bats probably do). They are not blind as such, rather they form images using sound waves. Perhaps sound waves of varying frequency are by bats interpreted as 'blues' and 'reds'.

    What we see is probably not how the real world looks. It is subject to our own interpretation. Our brain is a filter, allowing us only to see what it wants us to.

    we do hear in depth...quiet, and loud. image is just related to sight
    but think of all the invisible stuff. everything is on a vibration, u know. this is the concept of our individuality, our life purpose, goal, etc. to find the vibrations of the reality that suits our happiness.
    this is what "heaven" is--our vibration

    Indeed we do. But the theory goes that bats see in a similar way to us, they just use ears rather than eyes and sound rather than light. Perfectly plausible.

    yep. an example of this is when i had to study the eye in detail, there are actually tiny blood vessels in eyes in front of the image but the brain blocks these out so we cannot see them (r somethin like dat - does any1 know wot im talkin about)

    INTERESTING. I wonder what it would be like to be audibly "perfect"...hearing the sounds of the vibrations in all matter. feeling, tasting, smelling.

    seems weird to think. if all of our senses were magnified, we wouldn't even need to see. hm, oh well

    perhaps it was something further back in evolution...i couldn't imagine what it may have been, perhaps something that deals with water vision.

    i think evry 1's feelings could be slightly different and some the same. for example some people hate the taste of certain foods whereas some love them. could this be down to the interpretation of taste.

    no i mean where the imagine is placed in the eye, in front of this there are tiny blood vessels that should appear wiv the image (coz their in front) but the brain blocks these out

    no why

    (Octarine is the '8th colour of the rainbow' - you can only see it if you're magically talented, very silly stuff. Apparently it's a sort of greeny-purple...)

    I think I remember hearing about those blood vessels somewhere. If I get a minute tomorrow I'll see if I can find anything on it but I'm off to bed now But I do think you're probably right!

    are dogs really colour blind . ive heard they are and ive also heard that their not
    As a budding veterinary surgeon I can say that it is not true that dogs are completely colourblind. While dogs do not have the same color vision as humans, they are able to tell yellow from blue. Like a human with red-green colourblindness, they are unable to tell the difference between red and green.
    The reason for this limited range, in both the colourblind human and the dog, is that there are only two kinds of colour receptors in the retinas of their eyes. While most humans have three kinds of colour cells, with three different receptor molecules sensitive to blue, greenish-yellow, and red, dogs only have receptors for yellow and greenish-blue.
    Canine eyes also lack another human trait: the fovea, an area especially dense with detail-sensing cells. As a result, their detail vision is not as good as ours. But they make up for this by having much better night vision and greater sensitivity to movement.
    Hope that that answers the question.
