And The Color of the Dress IS….


It’s the middle of the night here and I cannot sleep. I decided to surf the net and it was bombarded with the question regarding a color of a dress. Is it blue and black or white and gold? I can tell you that my eyes saw white and gold but does it surprise me that people cannot agree on the color? Seriously, can we agree on anything these days? More and more I am realizing that our brains just work different ways. When it comes to perception, many times people interpret the same exact things entirely different ways. Can we trust our senses or even our beliefs? My guess is probably not. We have to learn to agree to disagree and just accept the fact that no two people see the same thing exactly alike. I’m not sure why people are freaking out about this ridiculous dress. Some say it is some sort of trick. I say it is a perfect example and a blatant reminder that we can’t seem to agree on much anymore. We need to switch our focus from who is right to openly respecting the differences in other human beings. My right is not your right and when it comes down to it, it has nothing to do with that at all. Our perceptions are unique and faulty and there’s not much more to say about it.

    You’re right on that point. Different minds call for diverging viewpoints. It is key for fields such as art or philosophy to evolve and expand. Without this, things would get pretty dull. That said, I think there is a need for certainty. If we support anyone’s perception and subjectivity then things such as sciences will never be reliable. I guess that draws the line between creativity and rationality. One flourish on diverging opinion, the other one on converging ones.

  2. LOL, my sister tweeted us all the picture this morning and asked “what color is this dress”, and my dad texted back “mom is driving but called to wanted me to tell you it is blue and black” which meant mom hadn’t seen it yet, so I responded with “the dress is all over the internet, some see blue/black, and some see white/gold” 🙂 It is a matter of perspective!
