Last time I checked, the eye doesn't decide what it's seeing. Your brain does.
@cmacp104, So, what you're saying is, the human eye can't understand what it's seeing?
@ archiethesailor, so what you're saying, are words?
@cmacp104, so basically, they're still correct.
@Prince super Vegeta , sorry if you got a ton of notifications, I just realized you can revoke your vote and vote again I had too much fun with it...
@BostonCelticsBoi, ...? I don't get notifications when people upvote or downvote me. I'm running Android and I guess that's in the update they didn't make for us yet... carry on my friend
@cmacp104, last time I checked, you didn't have the right education to declare that
@SupremeCommenter, and how do you know what education I have?
@cmacp104, well the eye sends messages to the brain which the brain then transfers into a way we can understand. What thus picture means is that the "data" the eyes are sending to the brain makes no sense. The eyes cannot put what they're seeing into a "format" the brain will understand, so in a way, the eyes don't understand what they're seeing as there's no way to make the brain understand. Plus, this is probably referring to our sense of sight. Which we use our eyes to use. So technically, it is what the eyes are understanding, as they're the reason we're seeing this in the first place. Make sense?
@Lizburn, actually, it may be that the eyes cannot actually detect that particular wavelength. Take the mantis shrimp for example - it has HIGHLY developed eyes. One aspect of this is that where our eyes only have cones and rods that allow us to see cyan, magenta, and yellow (and combinations thereof), the mantis shrimp has a 3rd component, allowing to see a 4th color. It sees things in a way we literally cannot fathom not because of a shortcoming in our brains, but because our simply aren't capable of detecting all there is to see.
@Katpee, ...our eyes* simply...
@cmacp104, what if your brain decides that your eyes can decide what they are seeing?
@Katpee, I actually thought the Mantis shrimp had like 11 components. I know some animal has something ridiculous like that
@Lizburn, the mantis shrimp has 16 photoreceptors while humans have three.
If you ram your head hard enough into a wall you can see ultraviolet black
@Lespie, i went straight through and all i see is another room
@Lespie, I can confirm this. *blacks out on toilet*
@Lespie, Darwin: "and now we wait"
@Lespie, My old school had a poster on the wall that said "Run headfirst into this wall". Needless to say, having this item in C hall (which contained the special education classrooms) was a mistake.
@Lespie, and stars... Pwetty pwetty stars...
@Lespie, this comment and its replies... Man that made my day
@Lespie, or Crimson
To clear up confusion, the reason it just looks black is because screens can't display it properly. If you saw it in real life, it would most likely hurt your head.
@NarwhalAssassin, The screen is probably displaying it fine, but there is interference from photons not being created by the screen.
@Strategist Dalek, What I meant is that it is impossible to accurately represent without physically seeing it. Light gets trapped inside due to its structure, and that can't be recreated. At least, not yet. If I seem like I said the same thing, look it up.
"This isn't your everyday darkness, this is advanced darkness"
It's Vantablack, not ventablack.
@UMad, sounds like something I'd get at Starbucks "I'd like at Venti, black"
@UMad, I feel obligated to say something.
Actually, the politically correct term is "Ventafricanamerican".
Ok guys just a heads up I submitted like 12 toy story pictures but in my defense they're my favorite I think you guys will appreciate them :) they'll be my first uploads too.
Vantablack - the name comes from the term Vertically Aligned NanoTube Arrays
This actually what attributes to cave insanity
You're so deep I can't even see you
It just looks black.
This thing is actually really cool
I-I don't know how to feel.. this is too soon...
Totally metal. "Ventablack" should be an album name.
This reminds me of my ex's heart
@Jarjab2, I know the feels bro
I hate to be the one to say it but this is a repost.
@MedalDeliveryMan, so what. I haven't seen it; therefore, to me, it's original.
So this is basically a black hole in a gem form?
Looks pretty black to me
Eyes can't even
Its actually called vantablack
[Intensity intensifies ]
Sounds a lot like whoopie goldburgs lips
all i see is my reflection on the screen
Isn't black no light as it is, so how can you have darker then no light
@NoTimeToExplain, Black still reflects some light in varying amounts, depending on the material, its structure, and so on. Vantablack is designed so that only 0.035% of light is reflected. In other words, it is basically a black hole minus the whole suck-you-in-and-crush-you thing.
It is so dark that light cannot escape from it. It is blacker than the blackest coal and the darkest night. Now imagine creating band merch with this stuff?!?!?!? So brutal! ψ(｀∇´)ψ
I decide I'm seeing black. Ventablack to be specific.
