I laughed, and I cried.
- I think you mean rouge royalty
I too love a ruler of a large mass of people colored in the first color within the spectrum of light too
How dare you insinuate that mauve marshall comes in the first color of an arbitrarily created list of visible light spectrums
are you for real
Who says red has to come first? Why doesn't violet come first? Why do we measure the wavelengths from largest to smallest? Why don't we start and the higher frequency wavelengths first instead of the lower ones? Because we wanna. You know,
based on random choice
or personal whim,
any reason or
do you know how counting works? you could argue that language is arbitrary, but numbers still have objective values outside of language.
It is arbitrary in the sense that it starts with red and not with violet; a random choice, not any one backed up reason nor evidence to support the fact that red is a superior color to violet. When the definition says "not based on any system" it's not referring to the light spectrum as a system, it means that the decision was made using no system. We just decided that we'd start with the larger wavelengths. So yes, it's arbitrarily decided.
alright after some quick googling, it occurs to me that i would consider red to be the last colour in the light spectrum with violet being the first.
But my point still stands, it isnt arbitrary because its the system of counting, going from a lower number to a higher number, violet through to red, based on the length of their wavelengths.
But you see,
consider violet to be first, since you're going from lowest wavelength to highest, but
consider red to be first because I've always grown up with diagrams showing the highest wavelengths first, plus that rainbow song that puts red first. Both of our
choices are equally valid in their own sense, but neither of them are objectively superior to either,
because they are an arbitrary way of classifying it.
The system itself is based on logic, the higher frequencies come after the lower frequencies, or vice versa, but what you determine to be the start and end point is arbitrary.
Those are some nasty burrs. He should see a doctor.
On a second thought, he should not see anyone with those eyes.
