The sunlight has an effect on Melanin, it has the ability to make our original melanin appear to be a darker color, while a lack of sunlight will make our original melanin appear to be a lighter color. Consequently, light dictates the appearance of what we perceive as color, which is actually an illusion.
Our retina has two type of cells that are responsive to light rays:
There are sounds that aren't senses by humans, because humans can only hear sound around the range of 19 hertz. Other entities on earth such as dogs are able to hear sounds that humans are not able to hear. Furthermore, the same circumstances applies to the human vision. There are intangible objects that are not visible to humans, because their wavelength is either too short or too long for the naked eyes to see. These wavelengths I'm referring too are:
- Ultraviolet Light (Black Light)
- Infrared light
Ultraviolet lights has a shorter wavelength per inch, while Infrared lights has a longer wavelength per inch. The smaller the wavelength, the higher the vibration, thus black light consequently produces the highest frequency of all lights.
When a narrow beam of white light passes through a transparent prism, a band of colors (similar to a rainbow) begin to manifest, this is known as electromagnetic spectrum. The spectrum produces the following so called "colors ":
