Is the Color BLUE a Modern Invention?
Of course not! Right? Well, apparently, it may not be so cut and dry.
Thanks to the ridiculous 'blue dress' debacle, the internet has been full of wonderful articles on color theory and physics lately.
I stumbled across this particularly interesting one that claims that the color blue may be a relatively modern invention. At first it seems easy to dismiss as nonsense, after all, the entire sky is blue. But the article poses some interesting points, and although the color obviously existed, humans may have been completely unaware of it for centuries.
Don't believe me? Take a look at the full article HERE, it may just change your mind.
