HOW TO TELL A BLIND PERSON ABOUT COLOURS OTHER THAN BLACK?
After obtaining a satisfactory answer on how to describe an elephant to a blind person from my ex-classmate, who is an eye specialist, I then raise another question as follow:-
How to tell blind people about colours?
The answer from him sounds solid and valid to me.
“Black and other colours arise as a result of differentiation by our sense organs. And our sense organ differentiate objects according to the way it configures so human eyes can perceive only light of a certain wavelength whereas other organisms has eyes that can see different spectrums of light. So, an object may appear different to the human eye compare to eyes of other organism. So what appears black to us may appear to be other colour to other organs. And because the mind is constantly bombarded by infinite information from our sense organs, we forget the real nature of the mind and regards the sensual world as real. When a person is in deep prayer or meditation, the surreal/tranquil state that arises is due to disconnection of the mind from the sensory input. That’s the real nature of the mind: complete and perfect.
In short there is no black or white….only emptiness. Our mind has been tricked..
Hope I have not confuse you guys.
