Part of iKE ALLEN’S “InnerViews Series”
iKE: Peter, your blending of scientific and spiritual principles is what lead me to featuring you in Leap! A Quantum Awakening and The Tao of Quantum Physics. From a physics perspective if you see a green blade of grass, isn’t it actually the opposite, basically the green is being absorbed and what you’re seeing is exactly the opposite of what’s really there?
Peter: Yes this is true in what’s happening in terms of light. When you see a green blade of grass, what’s happening is certain frequencies are being filtered out.

But the light itself isn’t green or red. The red frequencies are being filtered out. But it isn’t actually redness that’s being filtered out, it’s a certain frequency. And that frequency we measure as a certain number of vibrations per second. That’s just a model in the mind.

iKE: It’s interesting that exactly what we’re calling green or red is exactly the piece that’s being taken out of the spectrum, right? It’s the opposite of what we’re really seeing, the way we language it.
Peter: Yes, but either way it doesn’t matter which way we language it, whether we say that is green light or that is light that has had the red taken out of it. The point is, the actual light itself doesn’t have what we call color. It has frequency, it has energy, vibration, wavelength, physical qualities. The color is purely a thing in consciousness, it’s a quality in consciousness. When the brain has analyzed what it sees and the brain detects certain frequencies out there, certain brain activity. And the brain activity isn’t green. There aren’t green electrons or green neurons firing away, there’s just activity in the brain which when it appears as an image in the mind gives rise to a green experience, but that’s where green begins, the actual quality of greenness appears in the mind as an experience. Out there, there’s just frequencies of light. And we don’t even know what light is. It’s certainly not a thing.
