    'Color' only occurs in your mind. Color and light are not a part of the objective universe. The objective universe consists only of matter.

    Our sense of color is based on how objects reflect wave-motion that propagates through the sub-atomic particle medium and then comes in contact with the rods and cones in your eyes, etc.

    The colors in light are transparent. When they are "traveling" together, They become "invisible" or better "indivisible" by the organic lens of our eye. The colors  are reflected in varying degrees from objects, depending on the qualities and pigments of the surface. When light is refracted by transparent, geometric surfaces like crystals and cut gems, they are deflected and divided at different speeds according to wavelength. We can easily see these colors that are refracted and divided by the prism on a flat surface, like a painted wall. A hanging ornament of prisms is a good way to entertain a baby, young toddler or an old man who has learned to slow down and enjoy the simple pleasures of  life. God bless you Rajan Jolly.
