This is brilliant, nice one Doug!daniel wrote: ↑Sat Jun 01, 2019 10:46 amFrequency still exists for basic mechanical concepts (like a pendulum), but it is misapplied to the photon. What you actually have for color is "broken light"... when light hits an edge (like in a slit) it basically cracks and you get colors for the fragmented parts.
An associate by the name of Doug got curious and passed a spectrum of light through a prism. Now if color were frequency based, then we'd expect the colors to again bend at a specific angle depending on their color, producing a stairstep of colors on the screen... but guess what? All the colors bent exactly the same angle forming a straight line, saying that they are all the same frequency! Nature defies man, again.
Aha this will be Doug Marsh of the Tao of Colors that Gopi got in touch with, greetings Doug!

I've had a good look too and can't find any images or videos replicating this. The closest I found was this:Lonebear wrote: I looked online for people duplicating this, but all you find is "computer simulations" of colored beams passing through a prism, deflecting just as Newton predicted--since the simulations are programmed that way. And there is no edge distortion on the models--just pure color.

We've seen the original Goethe video but I found this lecture on him which is great, ask Doug to look through his prisms and he will see lines of colour but only at the edges where light and dark meet, especially at the window frames (3:39):If instead of "white" light we illuminate a prism with laser pointer, a monochromatic (one frequency) light, we can follow how the ray is refracted and ...
Sound as the composition of multiple frequencies - inverse = light as the colour of one frequency
Everybody knows the rainbow!!!! When raining, the "white" light from the sun is passing through the drops of water. Each drop acts as a prism. Then we can see that the white light is entering the "prism" but on the other side it is possible to see that rays from different colours (frequencies) emerge other side.
What does it mean? The short answer is that the phenomenon we understand as "white" light is in reality, the combination of all the colours as shown in the picture below.
As he says in his Theory of Colour video a light ray needs darkness to stand out and a dark ray needs light to stand out, you can't have colour without both dark and light.
At 4:50 his rotating of the prism to show the warm/cold colours when you rotate different ways is just like your photon 2.0 model!
The Occulted Plane:
It's worth linking to the RS2 page on Photon 2.0 and Goethe's Colour Theory and model for those here that may not have seen the progression of the natural research in motion. :

So what happens when you pass a spectrum of light through a prism then add a second prism in the way of the longer beam with the colours shearing off? The same thing I reckon, a single frequency with incremental colours?
When I look at that longer beam, if you were to rotate the prism very quickly like a helicopter blade then you would have a pretty good rainbow and of a similar size to a real one! Why does the colour change at that particular distance or interval, something to do with refraction from the prism? I'm thinking it's this as the second smaller beam pointing down and left has a longer blue before it starts turning green.
If you extended the distance of these beams would they eventually go into infra-red and become less visible?
