RE; Can people feel color.
I've got some ideas!


Narrow your experiment down to a small group of people such as elementary school children, 5th graders, seniors in high school etc.

Second -

Have your subjects look at a color and write down how it makes them feel


Put a blind fold on your subjects and have them touch a color and write down how they feel

Fourth -
Compare and contrast answers and repeat!

Hope your experiment goes well!

P.S. I think this experiment would fit better under biology or miscellienious, not physics! :)

Hi Huharai.

How about if people can taste the colors.
If they can taste them…they can have a feeling of sour, sweet, etc.
How about if you relate colrs to fruit or vegetables. Have people to taste them and get their response. Or, better yet., mix/blend some fruits and vegetables with same color and taste them and see what happens.

Also you can drive your experiment in a manner where you can collect data and put it in groups!!! Results of people of age 5-10…11-15…16-20.. etc.
Also, who’s is more sensible…men or women….
You can build a lot of charts a come up with interesting results and conclusions.

It is crazy, but at least you will have lots of fun.

Best regards

Tasting color
Hmm...sounds very interesting. What do you mean exactly by "tasting" color Oscar? Are you referring to different food coloring?

Dear Mad

What I am trying to say is that you can find any color in a specific fruit or vegetables.
So, if your are trying to find out if you can “feel” colors, why don’t you taste a fruit or a vegetable that is orange, red, black brown, etc.

I am trying just to relate color with taste because maybe you can translate a fruit or vegetable sour or sweet taste in to a “feeling”.

I know that this is crazy and absurd. But it is just a thought

I know that color is due to the length of wave of light. If we humans are made of matter (constituted by the elemental particles) then we have a personal frequency……thus, maybe when we see a color and “feel good” is because our frequency and the color’s frequency are the same and our heart starts jumping because of the resonance as a result of the superposition of the frequencies….

I think that this is double the crazy than the last idea of mine.

Mmmm…maybe I should quit the forums. I don’t want to confuse anybody. (Just kidding….I’ll try to do my best in helping others…in a non-crazy way)

See you soon.
