Did you know that the human eye is more sensitive to green than any other color? (Around the 550 nanometer wavelength in normal daylight.) This means that we can detect more variations in this color than others, and it shouldn’t be surprising since we live in a mostly-green world. But it leads to a chicken-and-the-egg type question: Are there actually more “greens” in the world than other colors – or do there only seem to be more because our eyes are more sensitive to them? So far I haven’t found an answer to this. Maybe I’ll call Michio Kaku’s radio show and put the question to him.
My deck is painted green, and currently buried under Morning Glory vines – which this guy sees as lunch.
(And in case you’re wondering – yes, I have green eyes. Now if I only had more of this color in my wallet…)
