Has anyone ever experienced color shifts?
    #4506220 - 08/07/05 06:35 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

What I mean is when a certain shade of colors in nature takes over another. In this picture for example:

Notice how the shades of green in the trees and grass turned into shades of blue? This is what I mean by a color shift. I see them expressed a lot in psychedelic artwork, and wondered if it was at all possible for that to happen while on boomers.

I find it possible to a certain extent without any drugs at all. Try this, it works well for me (I noticed when I was very young):

Make sure it's day time and you're in a brightly lit area outside, and close one eye, whilst looking at everything with the other. Keep the one eye closed for a few minutes or so, and then open your closed eye whilst closing your open eye. For me, everything that should be green has a very obvious blueness to it. You can keep alternating between which eye is open for a minute or so to see the difference in colour between "normal" green and "blue-green", until the effect fades so that both eyes see the same colour again. Anyways, this works for me, and of course, YMMV.

Yes, I was sitting in my room while tripping and looked through my window at the sky. The blue sky turned completely red (it was 12PM). The interesting thing was that everything in my room had its normal colors. It was not like looking through red glasses, but it was like my window was made of red glass. A very specific visual distortion.

yes, i will usually get certain colours being more prominent than others when tripping. it depends a lot on setting. indoors i tend to get a lot of yellow and purple, outdoors its more green and blue.

that's kinda what being colorblind is like. Tripping makes colors even more interesting for me.

red is close to orange, which is the negative of blue. i often find that if a color changes it often changes to its spectral opposite. then, if you're on drugs, that opposite may shift a bit--to red for example. i've seen purple trees before though so i'm not sure. if a tree is green then it is close to yellow, and purple is the opposite of yellow. maybe that's how it works sometimes? dunno.
