I’m a little upset about the colors of the rainbow…

Yesterday I heard an otherwise affable and informative physicist at Ottawa University say there were only SIX colors in the rainbow. That seven is just the social need for that number.
He wasn’t counting indigo.
What do you think?

  1. I’ve assumed that a rainbow includes an infinite number of color frequencies and that people (and, perhaps, cultures) differ as to how many colors their brains distinguish.

  2. First Pluto and now indigo? Next they’ll tell us that Heinz doesn’t have “57 varieties”. LOL — where will it all end?! :- D

    (I’ve since discovered that 57 was a number entirely contrived for advertising purposes. ::sigh:: The sadness of knowledge!- )
