OBS | Does the language of colour already exist

  1. 1. Does the language of coloursg galready exist?Vojko PogaēarHistorical oveviewN j i ti i S iNerja cave paintings in Spain ,could be the oldest yetfound,dated between 43,500 and42,300 years old.2
  2. 2. Historical oveviewcave paintings in ChauvetͲPontͲdArc are datedaround 30.000 years old!***And they are already“undersigned”!3Historical oveviewPalm prints on the alls of Cha etPalm prints on the walls of ChauvetͲPontͲdArc looks similar to nowadaysfingerprints of illiterate people!?!4
  3. 3. Historical oveviewThe best known Paleolithiccave paintings from Lascauxwere dated between 15.500and 19.000 years old.In this cave can be seen allthe narrative richness ,expressed in drawings!A d h iAnd, at that time meansdrawing equal to writing!5Historical oveviewThe clay tablet fragments fromM t i R l Lib fMesopatamian Royal Library ofAshurbanipal, represents theprinciples of pictorial storyͲtelling.6
  4. 4. Historical oveviewAncient Egyptian Hieroglyphs represent theexample of pictorial transition to abstractsignssigns.7Historical oveviewevolution of pictorial writingresults in abstract signs!8
  5. 5. Historical oveviewLuckily, the Rosetta stone(196 BC) helped us in thereal breakthrough inreal breakthrough indecipherment.On the stone is presentedpa hieroglyphic and ademotic version of thesame text in parallel witha Greek translation.Napoleons troops find itin 1799, but the completedecipherment finallymade JeanͲFrançoisCh lli i hChampollion in the1820s.9Historical oveviewwriting principle in abstract signs are represented onwriting principle in abstract signs are represented onthe Flood Tablets: Venus Tablet of Ammisaduqa, theGilgamesh Table Ͳ Royal Library of Ashurbanipal.10
  6. 6. Historical oveview11Such screw presses were applied in Europe to a widerange of uses, but mostly for winemakers!Historical oveview12This woodcut from 1568 shows a Printing press asit was probably Gutenbergs press.For Gutenberg was such model obviously properinspiration for his printing press.
  7. 7. Historical oveviewSimilar printing presses like Gutenbergs press fromp g p g papproximately 143613Historical oveviewTherefore, the reproduction is crucialfor any kind of development!y p…for plants, animals, humans, busines, whatever…14
  8. 8. Historical oveviewThe linguistic and grammar development was enabledby Gutenberg’s invention to its perfection!y g pIt was important for spreading books and all kinds ofknowledges in wider range.But for linguistics and writing is one dimensional levelBut for linguistics and writing is one dimensional levelsufficient.15Historical oveviewNowadays, we have computers with monitors which representthis necessary tool (like printing press) for two dimensionaly ( p g p )pictorial reproduction!16
  9. 9. Historical oveviewAnd the colours representthe skin of all visual world!17Historical oveviewBut the colours does not exist at all!!!!And, this we know already from Newton., y18
  10. 10. Historical oveviewThe colours are only interpretation of light energy in our cortex(and, also on our monitors)!( , )Therefore, for any kind of managing with colours is necessaryto initiate the grammar!It means conditional necessity to introduce the rules which weIt means conditional necessity to introduce the rules, which wemust learn!19BackgroundAnd, in this sense will be representedAnd, in this sense will be representedbackground of natural cycles inrelationship with colours.20

Old astrological charts told us that the ancient inhabitants have had great interest as closelyas possible to arrange their calendars to help them survive With astrological chart theyas possible to arrange their calendars to help them survive. With astrological chart theywanted to summarize the observation of celestial bodies.50Understanding the movement of the sun, moon and stars are downloaded in figureszodiacal signs.
