VIDEO: The Mystery of Magenta

Jun 28, 2013
0 min read

Sometimes some of the greatest mysteries are right in front of our eyes every day. This morning I came across this YouTube Video called “The Mystery of Magenta” and was really interested in how this guy approached the subject of how the brain perceives color.

You’ll have to check it out and ponder the implications. I was blown away at how the color magenta is different from all the other colors and how it might be the answer to some things I have experienced. All I can say about it is that I think there is something to the color magenta and the veil; perhaps someone out there will know what I am talking about.

This online color test to check your “color vision” is interesting, and I had coincidentally just tried it prior to seeing your post: http://www.xrite.com/online-color-test-challenge

St. John of the Cross in ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ wrote about three layers of vestments. White, green, purple. Some translations say red, others purple. It might be something that would add to your study and thoughts. Chapter 21.

This answers a very important question I’ve had. Thanks for posting. All I can say is – Wow. And that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God.

I am not sure of the online etiquette, but I guess it’s polite to say thank you. It would be interesting to hear what you learn sometime. Who knows, eh?

Thank You for posting @forgetting:disqus While I was reading I had an epiphany regarding colors and modern temple vestiture. I guess I didn’t mention the insight because it was so directly related to personal temple experience. I’ll give you some ideas that I’ve been pondering though, and maybe you’d be kind enough to share some insight? Celestial Rooms are mostly white or off-white. In the temple, we primarily dress in white. Those who have been endowed and have read the scriptures know about the color green. My question had to do with the color magenta and Brother Reed’s “veil” idea.… Read more »

I hadn’t noticed that about the especially noticed it as something unique, though I have only a handful of different temples to compare. I do have a few books that have lots of color photos, I will go back and check, it will be interesting to see. Thanks. I suppose I don’t really have one specific insight I could offer with that, though all of those fine details do matter, the whole temple experience is aimed at teaching us, even on levels that might not be at first most obvious. In theatre purple and greens are often used together and… Read more »

I am mostly thinking about some of the older temples I have attended. For instance, take the two temples that still have live sessions – The Salt Lake Temple and the Manti Temple. The Salt Lake Temple features the bluish/purple color in the Terrestrial Room, and it is the very color of the drapes that cover the veil. Now some might say that this is coincidence, but as you said yourself, all of the fine details do matter. It has been my experience that NOTHING is just coincidence in the temple. Everything is there to teach us something. Everything, no… Read more »

This is a really long editing of three I shared with a friend earlier, any less and context is removed. “The soul, then, touched with the love of Christ the Spouse, and longing to attain to His grace and gain His goodwill, goes forth here disguised with that disguise which most vividly represents the affections of its spirit and which will protect it most securely on its journey from its adversaries and enemies, which are the devil, the world and the flesh. Thus the livery which it wears is of three chief colours–white, green and purple–denoting the three theological virtues,… Read more »

If you want to read the full text you will want the “Ascent of Mount Carmel.” It can offer a lot of keen insight into the temple ritual. He writes of two nights that we must pass through to enjoy the embrace of the unity of God. As we are also instructed in two ‘nights,’ (symbolized by the stars and the moon) we must pass through to return to the presence of God, it is a good direction to point your mind. With a nod in that direction, and as he works he way through the book (and as you… Read more »
