A Thought Experiment

Imagine that Mr. Aoi, a former community college teacher of Arbitrary Taxonomy, has just written a book (“The Color-Blind Paintingmaker”) alleging that the color “red” does not exist. Rather, it is a culturally-reinforced mass delusion, probably (according to Mr. Aoi) originating in man’s primitive desire to glorify warfare and violent sexual conquest by romanticizing blood, making it seem somehow more “exciting”. The color “red” is no more real than the color “octarine” or the “sound of one hand clapping”. The so-called “color-blind” are actually evolutionarily superior by virtue of having been born with sufficient intelligence and native reason not to fall victim to the psychologically-conditioned charade of kokkinism (belief in “red”).

Notably:

-There is no real consensus on what the color “red” is supposed to be. When asked to define “red” to an akokkinist (one who believes there is no “red”), kokkinists always fall back on analogy, technical jargon or vague terminology rather than specific and concrete language. Moreover, there are many kinds of red; “crimson”, “scarlet”, “magenta” et al. Why should one red be considered the “true” red, when all are equally imaginary? If anything, monokokkinism (belief in red as a concept) is a bigger fraud than polykokkinism (belief in many specific reds).

-Many people throughout history and around the world may have claimed to have seen this color “red”, but since this is all testimony in support of a mass delusion, the testimony itself is by definition irrational. Basing an argument on such testimony is nothing more than allowing argumentum ad populam to prop up the delusional conditioning.

-Light in the wavelength of 630 to 700 nanometers has been designated by the kokkinist mainstream as “red”; however, this was decided with the a priori kokkinistic assumption that a color “red” existed. Those infra-orange wavelengths are correctly identified as “inner-green” (to differentiate from the “outer-green” band between yellow and blue). It should be noted that the emerging science of neuro-kokkinology has demonstrated that the human occipital lobe may be hardwired to react differently to inner-green than to outer-green; the evolutionary advantage of this is widely debated among akokkinists, but it clearly demonstrates that “red” is simply an hallucination.

-“Red” pigment being blended with yellow to make orange is ridiculous; the pigment being used is quite clearly green. Obviously, the production of orange rather than yellow-green in the mixing of certain pigments is due to the physical properties of the inner-green versus outer-green pigments themselves, not some imaginary color worn by gift-giving Christmas elves.

-In “color-blindness tests”, the testers know what the answers are supposed to be. Obviously, they (either unconsciously or in active collusion with the kokkinist majority) give clues to those tested; those who accept such clues and answer “correctly” are rewarded with potentially superior or more exciting public job opportunities—thus reinforcing and perpetuating the cycle. In fact, an utterly failed stage magician is making quite a name for himself in akokkinist circles by offering a million dollars to anyone who can use a “color-blindness test” to objectively prove that red actually exists (with the tiny proviso that he himself gets to control the exact conditions under which the test is administered, AND that he must not be able to reach the same result through the use of thoroughly-prepared stage magic).

Can you prove that the color red does exist, or will you join Mr. Aoi’s “Free Seers Society” (akokkinists only)? They don’t want freedom OF decoration, they want freedom FROM decoration!

I spent the first years of my life in a trailer park outside of a tiny town in rural Missouri. I grew up to be a long-haired, gun-hating, military-hating, Presbyterian super-liberal. Well, perhaps the “growing up” happened later. While in high school, I was on the cross-country and wrestling teams, and actually won my weight-class in a State powerlifting competition. I went on to attend college on a Bright Flight scholarship, where I promptly became an atheist. I trained for a few years in Shotokan karate and Cheng-system taijiquan before training in my first real martial art, Hwarang-Do, under the late Franklin Fowlkes (later the Founder and Grandmaster of the Five Elements Martial Arts System). I married an older Taiwanese woman my junior year, got divorced in short order, and dropped out of college. After completing my AA in Psychology, I decided I needed a complete change of scenery and joined the U.S. Marine Corps (having early been assured that there was no way that a skinny liberal like me would ever survive Boot Camp). Contrary to what the Hipster Zombies will tell you, this did not “brainwash me into being a Conservative”. Instead, it made me a very unhappy, short-haired liberal, surrounded by guns and the military. However, I spent my whole contract (after schools) on the island of Okinawa, where I was exposed to points of view not dominated by the American liberal media. During this time, I taught ESL classes as a side-job, trained under some of the highest-ranking masters of karate on Okinawa, and discovered the practice of Buddhism. I also spent some time in Korea, where I got to train in hapkido. It was during this period that I came gradually to realize how stupid and evil American liberalism actually is. This was partly due to my Military Police command sending me to Small Arms Instructor school, which gave me more exposure to guns than I could ever have imagined—thus negating my idiotic liberal distaste for them. After the active-duty portion of my Marine Corps contract was over, I worked several jobs, from security contracts to operating a forklift in a warehouse. In 2002, however, when the invasion of Iraq was getting under way, I signed up with the Missouri Army National Guard, and have remained with them since, continuing as a Military Policeman. I am also full-time corrections officer, a member of the Anglican Church, and at one time was an Instructor Candidate in Dekiti-Tirsia Serradas Kali (until my instructor moved away). My hobbies (beyond blogging) include strength training, shooting sports, martial arts, creating digital art, and being a huge science and science-fiction geek.
