It Helps Me to Remember That My Life Is Part of Something so Much Bigger

Albert Stern

It is easy to stop seeing and appreciating how life is staggeringly beautiful. This week I was reminded of how amazing our existence is by the orbits of Earth and Venus. 

If you draw a line connecting Earth and Venus as they orbit the sun, you get this pattern on the left. If you continue to track the pattern for eight years you get the pattern on the right! 

I had a hard time grasping how this was happening. This video illustrates it wonderfully. 

This pattern is happening all the time, day after day, year after year. We are all part of this beautiful dance. 

Like everyone, sometimes I get bogged down in the daily details of life. It helps me to remember that my life is part of something so much bigger and wonderful! 

Why the color Purple does not really exist

Albert Stern

Vision and how we see the world is wildly complex. I learned this back in art school and it has always stayed with me. 

For example, in a rainbow there is no pure purple (aka magenta). It does not exist as a wavelength of light. Purple is a color our brain just kind of makes up. This happens when only two of three kinds of nerve cells (cones) in our eye are stimulated. 

This video by Steve Mould and The Royal Society explains the whole thing super clearly. 

Curiously there scientists are looking for women believed to genetically have a fourth yellow cone. These women would see more colors than the rest of us!
