Red-Green Color-Blind people have difficulty distinguishing certain shades of red from certain shades of green. Blue-Yellow Color- Blind people have difficulty distinguishing certain shades of yellow from certain shades of blue. To understand Color-Blind peoples' varieties of experiences it is essential to acknowledge that there is a full range of spectral colors associated with a full range of wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation in the visible range of human vision. Dichotomous thinking cannot help us to understand the differences between Color-Blind people (R-G vs B-Y), and between each kind of Color-Blind person and "Normal" visioned people. Understanding comes from dealing with the continuous spectrum of visible wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation which human eyes respond to. Color-Blind people's eyes differ according to how sensitive they are to various wavelengths of light, and how their eye-brain combination interprets the various wavelengths of light. Artificial differences in perception of colors can be induced by wearing different kinds of colored sun- glasses or other color-filter glasses. People who are wearing dark red filtered glasses will see green object as a shade of brown. Likewise, people who are wearing dark green glasses will see red objects as a shade of brown. Each will see objects which are skewed towards the color of their own glasses "normally", and see the other complementary person's glasses as a shade of brown. Similarly people with differing religious assumptions, beliefs, convictions and thought patterns see the world differently---depending upon what they focus their attention upon, and what they virtually never focus their attention upon. Differences in selective foci of religious attention result in differences in religious experience, perceptions, visions and expectations of self and others. Some people perceive "evil" in terms of obedience & disobedience; discipline & lack of discipline; conformity & rebellion. Other people perceive "evil" in terms of alienation & reconciliation; exclusivity & inclusivity; rejection & acceptance; individualism & community. People who perceive "evil" in the first way may be unable to perceive "evil" in the second way; and vice- versa. Each kind of person may be unable to conceive of the possibility of seeing in the complementary way. The first way of religious perception responds most readily to considerations of Law rather than of Love. The second way of religious perception responds most readily to considerations of Love rather than of Law. Relatively few people seem to be able to respond in balanced ways to considerations of Law and to considerations of Love. Most people tend to specialize in exclusive ways in their perceptions, visions and expectations. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
