    A lot of those questions exist because of the various connotations that those words connote. For example, negative can mean "the absence of". However, it can also mean undesirable. Black could mean the absence of light or it could be used as a socially outdated term for African-American people. These numerous connotations have to be explored in each context and then if harmonious, deductions can be made to some conclusion.

    Interesting thoughts and questions

    Yes, it is. I may expand upon some ideas in cognition and the patterns of how people think and learn based upon certain factors in another thread.

    Hmm, that's quite deep. I seem to have a polarity opposite but I commented there from a painter's perspective. But I think I sort of stand by that anyway:-

    To me, negative being "the absence of" would be cold white. Hospitals are white to give the impression of clean sterility/purity. A white canvas is an artists nightmare.

    Black, I find a warm & an absolute base colour. An artist can blend into it with ease.

    I think of Space for example & consider that it is loaded, not empty at all. I guess the human collective perception therefore is it is impure & tainted. But, if you consider how life came about here on Earth however (& no doubt other planets), then black should be positive & fertile.

    Thanks Streetwise. I wasn't really interested in that aspect though. As I said afterwards, it was more from a painters perspective.

    I just see a black dot. It doesn't make me think of anything besides a dot. I'm boring like that. But I guess it says something about my tendency to just see things as they are without trying to search for any hidden meaning or apply emotion to it or anything.

    I see a smeared oval.

    I'm a bit nearsighted. I should probably go get my glasses, but... stairs... lethargy...

    Any additional meaning wont occur to me. I've been using computers too often for too long, and they dont deal in abstracts.

    I see a primarily white image with a minimal dark spot in its midst.

    Since the boundaries of the image are not demarcated, I cannot tell the shape of the image* nor the relative position of said spot (within the image).

    To be fair (in terms of communication), the white would be the carrier and the black would be the intelligence. Those two functions could be reversed, too, but that is less common, these days.**

    *Image info reveals that information, however.
    **FYI, did you know that Batman: the Animated Series (1992-1995) used "light colors on black paper (as opposed to the industry standard of dark colors on white paper)" for its backgrounds?

    A small block dot that moves and becomes very slightly larger if you click on it. I'm the quintessential literalist.

    I guess this falls under "religion" so I will say this and not say anymore.."black" appears in the bible with various connotations. If you use "Strong's Concordance" or another lexicon, you can see the various meanings from the original greek/hebrew etc. I am not sure about all of them.

    Nice take. Do you have interest in music and story-telling?

    The normal part of me sees a dot that needs to be alone in space. (hermit dot .png).The neurotic part of me tells me l am missing the bigger picture and l can't see the obvious, and l will be tested on this.

    Possibly there was a bunch of white dots that got together but they couldn't overcome the empty space hence black tiny space (black dot).
