Lots of folks say that black is the combination of all the colors. Well, maybe not lots, but I've heard it quipped much more than a few times. But don't almost all colors result from some ratio of the primes: yellow, blue, red, white, and "clear" (nothingness or dilute). Take white and dilute out of the mix, heh heh, for a sec. Any proportions of the 3 primaries produces everything in the "ROYGBIV" spectrum, and every variation and density of BROWN. Throw in white and you get *nearer* to the grey spectrum but not to it. Dilute only leads to opacity. How in the WORLD do you get to black?

Thanks - the stuff invented at RPI is cool!
Wow. Thanks for this answer. I actually thought that a black hole was a pure vaccuum, increasing its pull (gravity) infinitely as it pulls in more and more matter, including (particles??!) of light. If/whn max density occurs, then...**BIG BANG**!!
Your view overall is right. Two notes: The word "vacuum" doesn't fit. A vacuum is empty, a black hole is full of matter. Black holes do pull in photos (particles of light) and not let them out. That's what makes them black. Bang at end: theoretical.
Well said. In art and graphics, we can create something that is very close to black, and even black to the human eye, but not perfectly black.
