For most of us, colors are easy. We learn them when we’re just toddlers. We recognize them and instinctively know that bananas are yellow, apples are red (but sometimes green), and the sky is blue.
But when we see something that is yellow, are we actually seeing yellow? It depends where we’re seeing it. Like that big yellow frame up there in the video player. It’s undoubtedly yellow, but did you know you’re not actually seeing yellow.
YouTuber Michael Stevers (aka, Vsauce) uses the front part of this video to give us perspective into the colorful world of perceived color. But don’t tune out after that. His perspective on perspectives is equally perceptive.
