Say “red”… and there are fifty people listening, it can be expected that there will be fifty reds in their minds. And one can be sure that all these reds will be different.

-Josef Albers


We color our world and attitudes according to the ever-unfolding circumstances that intertwine within our life journeys. But we also illuminate these colors in ways that are consistent with who we are – and with the choices we make. Despite external influences, we are the perceivers, the creators and the illuminators of our own philosophical outlooks.

Our shades of perception  vary according to our experiences and how open we are to new ideas. Most of us, fortunately, are receptive to fresh visions and have the capacity to evolve beyond group-thinking, rather than remain permanently fixed in obsolescent world-views. “Some groups or members of groups dominate, judge and decree, and often ruthlessly impose their truths on everybody they control” (HAVE YOU EVER HAD A HUNCH? The Importance of Creative Thinking). But most of us adapt to changes both philosophically and creatively because we know that life is not static and changes are inevitable. Our individual moodprints can effect both small and substantial changes in our individual and collective futures.

Today, the need for thoughtful, substantial, intelligent, weighty, creative, versatile and independent thinking is extremely urgent. And, as Perceptilly in THE WORLD OF GLIMPSE observes: “The closer you get to reason, the more weight you have.” So enjoy being that thoughtful, independent and creative thinker and value your ability to give a glow to your own world and the world of others. Be aware of the affects of your moodprints on yourself and on others. This  is Perceptilly’s response to Spunktaneous‘ question: “Do I see gold as you do, Perceptilly?”

Well, Spunktaneous…

I have a Masters Degree

In Meta-luster-cology.

I can glean a glitter from a glow.

Name all the lusters there are to know.

But Spunktaneous, I don’t know how you perceive gold…or pink…or any hue. Only you know. The colors you perceive are entirely you, and each time you look, they’re different. Depends on your moodprint which affects the glow you give to a color.
