The spectrum is the range of different colors which is produced when light passes
through a glass prism or through a drop of water.
A rainbow shows the colors in the spectrum.
Collision & Resistance:
The light should be passed throughout a prism to get the spectrum. In the process,
the light collides with the prism blocking the way of it.
Here’s a resistance; colliding two objects try to maintain their attribute.
As a result, it may be created something new or erupted subconscious possibility.
Resistance from the collision inevitably generates creative energy.
Refraction & Diffusion:
It is formed and comes in sight of refraction and diffusion, from collision and
resistance. This activity has a similarity to Dialectics; thesis, antithesis, synthesis.
The former is about the movement of objects, and the latter, the development of
Synthesis includes the resistance between thesis and antithesis, unifies two, and finally creates new idea.
Like this, the refraction between collision and resistance spreads the creative
Rainbow & Invisible Ray;
The light is colored by the spectrum and spread by its refraction and diffusion.
The spectrum separates the light; infrared light (IR) – visible ray – ultraviolet
We can only recognize visible ray called a rainbow which is composed of Red
Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet.
However, our eyes can actually distinguish over 2,000,000 colors in it, so we can be
conscious of various colors in spectrum.
On the other hand, IR and UV are invisible to our naked eyes. Invisibility is
mysterious. Mysticism enables us to have a huge imagination.
