Hi Scooter,

I guess the divide rests in what one might consider reasonable then.
There is also the difference between what occurs and perception. It
is reasonable for one to say that something deep and dark brown or
grey appears close enough to black for them. That acknowledges that
it is not indeed black. Color theory as it occurs in light is very
different indeed from what occurs with pigment. And it is with
pigment that I was referring. Mixing the complements pushes to the
greys and browns. If you wish to call those black that is fine. I
just differentiate between what is dark and what is black. We are
probably just dealing with semantics. I would never call the result
of the mixing of complementary colors black because I would not
consider that to be an accurate description. But that is not to say
that you cannot call it black if you wish. If it works for you, then
so be it. My original statement was more for the purpose of
accuracy. And you have the right to accept it or reject
it..especially when you are dealing with what seems reasonable to you.

In the final analysis, the process you initially mentioned will not
work with henna anyway. So a prolonged and protracted dialog does not
feel reasonable since it is not applicable. So we shall agree to
disagree and allow others to find their way to the magic of red and
green...and blue and orange...and yellow and purple and on and on.
