    I always found the Newton numerology thing interesting. ROY G BIV has become so ingrained in us, it’s funny it came from a rather arbitrary decision based on mysticism ~300 years ago.

    I also find it fascinating that while we see the world in RGB, and assume we can create any colors with those 3 components, that doesn’t mean that monitors with 3 LEDs or printing in 3 or 4 colors can recreate the full range of what the human eye can see. If you are interested, look up CIE color space. I had to use color coordinates from CIE xy at one of my jobs recently to measure intensity and color of LEDs.
