Black & White Candles
By:
Post # 1
To most of us, the color white is a color of supreme purity. And I agreed with the idea that white was a color of purity, however I started to think about it more, and now I'v got a question that I would like the opinions of other's to help me answer.

The color white is a combination of all the colors. The color black is the absence of white (AKA, all colors), therefor, it would technically be touched by nothing, in a sense. So would it not be the purest color? (Let's just go ahead and assume black is a color, even though many say it is not.)

Colors are colors, it is what it means to the pracitioner and the spirit that really matters when it boils down to it.

I belive you have those two confused, black is every color put into one and white is the a absence of color. Black to many people would be labeled as a dark or "Evil" color because it's mysterious impression it tends to give off. In truth,black is meant as a form of stability and control. It can be interpretated in many ways but it's not meant to be evil. White is considered pure and holy because it isn't in possession of an actual color and in my opinion some see it as pure because of so. Hence "The abscence of sin makes you holy and righteous". And to a select few color can be considered impure and since white doesn't have any it's pure. In my own taste I believe that if both are used correctly it can leads to phenomenal results

From an artistic standpoint, black is theoretically the combination of all colors, with white being the absence of any color. From a scientific standpoint it is exactly the opposite, with white being the presence of all color and black being the absence of any color. So depending on who you ask, a scientist or an artist, you will get different answers on what black and white really are.

Since you are using the scientific standpoint for your argument on white and black Autumn Moon , I'd challenge you to think for a moment about the other colors. Scientifically speaking, the color green is not green at all, it's actually the presence of every color excluding the color that you are seeing. (The green light is being reflected, which then hits your eyes and tells your brain the candle is green, all the other colors are absorbed by the object.) I guess that would open up a whole new range of questions, perhaps that you can think about for later. :)

I suppose it all comes down to what you believe, personally I associate white with purity due to a combination of reasoning I'm not sure I can adequately explain. Guess it all depends on your definition of purity and what the colors each mean to you.

SinixO, I had forgotten about the fact that when we see objects and their colors, that they are not actually that color :). And white will always remain the purest color to me as well, maybe because from my point of view it is a mixture of all colors, but remains bright.
