Everyone's psychological makeup is immensely diverse when compared with every other person in this world. We have colour blinds and we have "normal" people. With colour blinds, you can be blind to only a certain colour or a colour group (like reds, pinks, etc), which some--although rare--are blind to the whole colour spectrum. When we see all colours, we are all perceived as normal. However, this is not the case. Although we all receive light wavelengths, we all receive them differently, as our eyes collect the light different, thus having a different reaction and perception. We all have differing sensitivity to the cone cells within our retinas that detect light at different rates. So a light red Skittle exposed to much sunlight on a summer day could appear that way to me, but it would appear much differently to you, but still have a red hue.

Very interesting, basically. I learned a lot about this in my psychology classes in the tenth grade. I find it rather fascinating how it all is broken down in text and makes total sense when we think about it. Even though I may have made no sense in my ramblings from above, I still think, no matter how different our eyes react to light sensitivities, we still see the close-enough colour. I am not going to see that Skittle as red while you see it as blue. Besides, if there was a blue Skittle, I'd be scared.

I'm with you both on the nostalgia train. (((hugs))) Sometimes (especially thursdays, haha) it is almost eerily quiet in here.

...There are any number of reasons for the way that CL has changed, but in my heart I believe that the shift happened when a certain someone* faked her own death by brain cancer. ...I think it changed the way that the community interacted in a really profound way, and we lost a lot of really beautiful members in the fallout.

That being said- this is still a beautiful place filled with beautiful people, and I am grateful everyday for the friendships and connections I have made here. You guys are some astonishly lovely people, and I love you all to bits.
