Does Color Even Exist? What you see is only what you see

Color perception is an ancient and active philosophical problem. It’s an instance of the wider category of sensory perception, but since the color spectrum fits on a single line (unlike, say, touch and taste), it has always been of particular interest. In her new bookOutside Color, University of Pittsburgh professor M. Chirimuuta gives a serendipitously timed history of the puzzle of color in philosophy. To read the book as a layman feels like being let in on a shocking secret: Neither scientists nor philosophers know for sure what color is.
__
“Of all the properties that objects appear to have,” Chirimuuta writes, “color hovers uneasily between the subjective world of sensation and the objective world of fact.”

And I also thought colour was just different wavelengths that we "see"...

Easy peasy cauliflower rice is fantastic. Incredibly low in carbs and high in nutrition and fibre. My recipe requires no pre cooking, no pre seasoning and is quicker than cooking rice. It goes well with Slow Cooker Malaysian Beef Curry, Chicken Coconut Curry and Saag Gosht. How have you used cauliflower rice?

That's a good way to use sugar!
 
Skin in need of a little love? It’s time for a sugar scrub! I’ve scoured the web for some of the best and most creative (and yes, the prettiest!) sugar scrub recipes, and I’ve compiled a list of my absolute favorites. Which one of these strikes your fancy?

This "Cauliflower Mac and Cheese" gives you all the creamy, cheesy goodness of mac and cheese—without the high starch content of pasta.

I've always loved cauliflower with cheese. I just boil the cauliflower, then put the pieces in a baking pan & place slices of American cheese on top ('cause cheese is fattening too). 
When I was younger, it used to be a vegetable side. Now with my lack of energy, I make it a full meal w/ nothing else. Still yummy!

"Margot Wallström, the Swedish foreign minister, denounced the subjugation of women in Saudi Arabia. As the theocratic kingdom prevents women from travelling, conducting official business or marrying without the permission of male guardians, and as girls can be forced into child marriages where they are effectively raped by old men, she was telling no more than the truth. Wallström went on to condemn the Saudi courts for ordering that Raif Badawi receive ten years in prison and 1,000 lashes for setting up a website that championed secularism and free speech. [...]

"Saudi Arabia withdrew its ambassador and stopped issuing visas to Swedish businessmen. The United Arab Emirates joined it. The Organisation of Islamic Co-operation, which represents 56 Muslim-majority states, accused Sweden of failing to respect the world’s ‘rich and varied ethical standards’ — standards so rich and varied, apparently, they include the flogging of bloggers and encouragement of paedophiles"
If the cries of ‘Je suis Charlie’ were sincere, the western world would be convulsed with worry and anger about the Wallström affair. It has all the ingredients for a… Read more

Talky - free and open source truly simple video chat and screen sharing for small groups

No more email invitations – simply share the link to the room you have created with the people you want to talk to and voilà!

Talky uses a cutting edge web technology called WebRTC. Please note that only Chrome, Firefox and Opera currently support WebRTC. However, we also have a handy iOS app for iPhone and iPad, which you can download on the App Store.

You can add an extension to your browser to make starting a call even easier. Here is how.

Talky works with as many as four to six people in a room (although depending on your hardware it could be even less). Because your computer simply can't process all the data for too many video streams, quality degrades with an increased number of participants. We are working on that issue. The new beta version appears to support up to 25 people.

See https://talky.io/ and also for iOS at https://itunes.apple.com/app/talky-free-video-conferencing/id882057960.

Tab - The simple bill splitter for Android and iOS

Tab is the simple way to split a bill among friends. Snap a pic of the check and tap your items to claim them. Tax and tip are calculated for you. No more back-of-the-napkin algebra or typing in prices by hand!
Here's how it works:
• Take a picture of your receipt to read in all the items and prices from the check
• Select which items each person ordered. Everyone with Tab on their phone can join onto the bill and select their own items – Tab keeps everything synced in real time.
• Multiple people can select the same item if they shared it
• Tax and tip are automatically divided proportionally
• If it's someone's birthday, you can split their total evenly among everyone else

Never struggle to split the check again!

A note to our international friends: Tab is currently only available in the US Play Store because the many different receipt formats, unique taxes and languages in other countries would cause our image-to-text conversion and parsing to give very mixed results. We hope to bring Tab to other countries as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience!

My note: But if you want to take a chance you can sideload the APK from http://apkdler.com/apk/view/Tab++The+simple+bill+splitter_com.bring10.tab. I've tested this one and it installs and works quite well. I love the simplicity but effectiveness of this app. The shared splitting feature is really powerful for a group of friends with a long bill. 've done this with paper a few times and it is probably quicker to download and install the app there and then for everyone, rather than struggle with pen and paper!

Introduction

I love G+ and I am very thankful for the generosity and knowledge of all the amazing people that I meet here. 

I have a serious passion for Science Fiction and I believe that the whole world will one day live up to the finest crew in the fleet...

Other personal interests include History, Philosophy, Psychology, Architecture, Literature, Classical and Religious Music, Vegetarianism, Animal Rights and mostly anything, really. Lately I've been considering starting a *LCHF* (Low Carb High Fat) diet so I welcome any info, please let me know if you post in this area. 

I’m a non-sectarian Buddhist with a very skeptic mind. I see religion as a path to a happier life, not as an excuse to stop thinking. Reason, science and education are awesome and not, in any way, a threat to my beliefs. What kind of truth would that be, if science could prove it wrong?

I'm endlessly fascinated by the workings of the human mind and I appreciate opinions different from mine, as long as they make sense and come from the heart. 

I enjoy articulate and polite conversation.  I will block and probably report any person that uses inappropriate language, posts hate comments, gratuitous violence or pornography. 

Thank you for reading all this.  :-)
