  • …. i have many problems with harmonizing 8 colors for my divinizing and universalizing paradigm, is anyone to help me, namely i want to synchronize them for determination as ultimate and final solution so i can paint universal symbol an put on front page of my presentation, i think that the central color of my paradigm is #006400, but then which is next number for fuchsia to comply any requirement in optics or esthetics etc, or black etc., is there any rule, regulation, requirement, respect .... human eye registers about 7 million colors as reflected light ….

  • Hi,
    I am recruiting you any for universalisation, charismation, divinisation and presentation,
    Sorry, for this comment, i have commented on topic for recession, but then i went universal, pardon me .... !
    i am not doing too much, i am doing that what i think it has to be done ....
    my solution for recession is universalisation, means evaluate all resourcess and assets of universe and then apply necessary sum of new currency (Zik=100$) to pay all debts and to buy off all taxes from national governments ....
    of course for this we need adequate entity, i see on horizon only myself as the secular and universal, legal and official The God, recognised by UN and with contracts with all national states governments,
    of course i invite you all to create a fresh new account at google, free, but with my data: universal identities names and universal residences on Internet, like this one: Zababau Ganetros Cirimbo Ostangu ogiriny64256142, ( you can create this one but then inform me), access to account i have to have because this is divinising universalisation, but you can open it for all, i simply have to arrange it to adapt to paradigm, isn't it ...... so, adapt to new changes and modifications in the arrangement of the history

  • 4. Secondary Colours
    • Colours achieved by a mixture of
    • two primaries.
  • 5. Tertiary Colours
    • Colours achieved by a mixture of primary and secondary hues.
  • 6. Complementary Colours
    • Colours located opposite each other
    • on a colour wheel.
  • 7. Saturation tells how pure or full a colour is
  • 8. Value tells how intensive, or light a surface is

    • Tint:
    • A hue produced by the addition of white.

    • Monochromatic
    • Analogous

    • Identical colors appear to shift when framed by different backgrounds or patterns. This is called "simultaneous contrast" and has a variety of affects on how we see things.
