The Reality of Black, White and Grey

Posted Sep 20, 2010

There is a silly saying some use to justify their actions:

There is no black or white, only shades of grey.

The problem is how reversed that is from true Reality

The correct way to look at it is: There is no grey, only combinations of black and white.

Grey is simply some amount of white and black mixed. Grey can not exist if white and black does not. White and black define grey.

We'll use text as an example:

As grey does not exist without white/black, so too does fine distinction and middle ground disappear into oblivion without structured boundaries on both ends.

For those that can truly understand the difference, they have an improved perspective upon Reality.

Then again, I suppose there is no blue and red, only shades of purple.
