That's not really explaining what red is, though. It's just a bunch of analogies that don't describe what the color red is or looks like. It's a bunch of superficial garbage the person wrote thinking "Oh yeah, this sounds great! People will totally love this **** .".

But then; I'm a cynic.

Red is irreducible, which basically means that the word red is the lowest form of explanation fo something. There no levels of explanation beneath, if you get my meaning. This tumblr-post is, just as you said, analogies and associations, not an explanation of red.
User avatar #159 to #136 - yamiyo (09/01/2013) [-]
I understand what you mean and I already knew that.... however; just because it's irreducible now doesn't mean it will be later. We don't have words to describe red or ways to think about red in a comprehensible way so as to describe it accurately, but perhaps someday in the future we might.

To be fair, I'm a writer and I try to pepper up my words a little, but I understand that sometimes there's too much and keep it generally 'normal'.
User avatar #9 to #8 - yamiyo (08/31/2013) [-]
Honestly, I was just really in a bad mood and decided to vent it in the new uploads. At the same time, I was a little disappointed because I was hoping someone was going to explain the color red as if teaching a blind person what it was. That would've been far more impressive.

Props to you for pursuing writing, by the way. That's a tough road. Best of luck to you.
#10 to #9 - theonemica (08/31/2013) [-]

But you're right, it would have been more impressive. I usually think about using food to describe it. Like, not in a book, actually describing it to a blind person. xD

User avatar #125 to #1 - snowshark (08/31/2013) [-]
Actually, it's worse than that because other than the one about the colour of your skin when "she" touches you they are all based on cultural factors. For example, Red is very differently received in China where brides even wear it. It is a colour of joy and happiness.

The twaddle posted up there is just that. Twaddle. It is very basic which does reach the heart but only if you don't already have standards higher than that of a teenage girl.

Its supposed to be equating emotion with color like sadness would be blue, anger and anything heart racing would be red etc etc.

that description wouldn't cut it for a blind man
User avatar #58 to #51 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/31/2013) [-]
neither would what the guy in the post said.
User avatar #59 to #58 - augustusxxiv ONLINE (08/31/2013) [-]
that's not entirely true; the man in the post uses emotion as well as other sensory feelings to describe red, which a blind man can understand.
User avatar #60 to #59 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/31/2013) [-]
except you still wouldn't know what the color red was. You would just know that it was apparently associated with a ton of emotions so that don't really help with anything.
User avatar #65 to #60 - bladebites (08/31/2013) [-]
It's as close as you'll get, dude. They'll get as much as possible out of that, blind or not. If you want them to magically conjure up the exact color in their heads, then you're expecting too much.
User avatar #67 to #65 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/31/2013) [-]
and yet it's still just as far off as saying it's darker than pink.

They would still have no idea what red was or what any color was other than color can be associated with emotion being they don't know what the color is that doesn't really mean anything.
User avatar #70 to #67 - bladebites (08/31/2013) [-]
You'd be surprised how well emotion relates to color psychologically. It really depends on the person, but it is surprisingly useful. People connect emotions to colors, and the way this is described is spot on enough to get the feeling/gist of the color.
It would be pretty hard to get a clear physical image of red, but an understanding of the color is very likely to come of what's written there.
User avatar #73 to #70 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/31/2013) [-]
No I wouldn't be surprised because I know that. This might be useful for you or someone else that can see the color red but, someone who has never seen red or any color this wouldn't do much form them but let them know that red can be associated with anger and love and a ton of other emotions and that doesn't help with anything.
User avatar #78 to #73 - bladebites (08/31/2013) [-]
You say you know that, but the rest of your statement contradicts that point. You're implying everyone is the same. A lot of people would get a clear idea depending on how they are, their personality, experiences, etc. Some wouldn't of course, but you're speaking as if what you say is a universal law, which is incorrect.
My point is that a lot of people would form a clear image, whether it be of the color or just a representation of it, by this description.
You're saying no one would, which you don't have nearly enough information to make a valid point, unless you've personally tried it on all the blind people on the goddamn planet, or at least a good number of them.
You're taking your personal assessment and assuming it's the same for everyone else, when that is far from true. Not everyone thinks like you. Maybe it wouldn't work for you, but don't speak for others.
User avatar #81 to #78 - sparkyoneonetwo (08/31/2013) [-]
Nothing I said contradicts anything.

Have you ever met a blind person??
Have you ever talked to a blind person about colors??

I spent 6 weeks going to class with a blind friend of mine it was a voluntary study done by the Pittsburgh School for Blind (it's typical a children school but over the summer of 2012 they did this study on blind adults) the whole study was about blind people and try to get them to understand color.

There was a little over 300 blind adults form the ages of 18 to the oldest guy was 65 and all of them where born blind.

After 6 weeks ( 5 two hour classes a week) of describing and trying to get blind people to understand what colors where. Roughly 300 blind people left this place knowing nothing more than colors can be related to emotion and most left more unsure about colors than when they came in.

Now 300 is a small group and there may be a few people out there that this could benefit understand color but, after seeing it not be able to help 300 people what was said in this post is useless to describe a color to someone that has no idea what color is.
User avatar #85 to #81 - bladebites (08/31/2013) [-]
It contradicts what you're saying because you claim to know about psychology and then said something that goes against it.
Personally I'm speaking from what was taught to me in a psychology course about colors and the mind.
Forgive me if this sounds rude, but I don't believe a goddamn thing you said just now.
Not to be a dick or anything, but I do not believe for a goddamn minute that you conveniently performed this exact experiment on actual blind people. That sounds like complete and utter ******** , excuse me for saying so, but it's true. It's not that I don't believe you because I feel like it, I just can't even if I try.
No rational person would believe that you were actually in that specific situation that conveniently did that exact experiment, with colors specifically, and basically everyone in that room had the exact same results that so conveniently happen to support your claim.

Black is everything and nothing. It commands fear and respect through the projection of power. Black is the thunderous step of the combat boot and the world crunching turmoil of the black hole. Black is the unforgiving silence after loss of life. It is also the prelude to the birth of another. Black is the contrast of white, absorbing every color that touches it. Black is infinite, what remains at the furthest depths of ocean and space. Black is the absence of, or the overwhelming power of, humanity.
