Fact - The magic of Science led by the spirit

Up until recent times , the majority of people whom wondered, accepted Aristotles Theory on the mysteries of colour , that colours were a mixture of light and darkness

It was Galileo that was first said to propose the idea that Darkness was Absence of Light and had nothing to do with colours of light

Then after galileo, it was Newton that solved the mysteries of colour
He proved that light alone was responsible for colours
Using the famous prism experiment, newton showed by the phenomena of refraction, that white light was in fact a mixture of coloured light

Refraction causes a change of course or bending of the light from its entry point to the refraction vessel to its exit point from the refraction vessel , dependent on the energy level of the light.

When white light hits the prism , its core components of coloured light are exposed as they each exit the prism in their naked exposure due to the varying frequencies of each colour
Red light has much lower energy than violet light , so the penetration into the refraction vessel is at a slower frequency of wavelength and thus its exit bend is not so dramatic as a high frequency blue light which is bent more on exit due to it being slowed down a lot more in the refraction process
The angle that light hits the refraction vessel plus the raw material of the refraction vessel itself affects the refraction process

The art of diamond cutting creates bevels for a specific reason, it maximises the duration of internal reflection inside the stone thus giving its impressive sparkle in varying light conditions

Newtons Prism experiment that effectively solved the first mystery of light also had a dramatic effect on the philosophy of being in that the field of Metaphysical understanding had to take a dramatic change of course

Before the development of modern science, scientific questions were addressed as a part of metaphysics known as "natural philosophy". The term "science" itself meant "knowledge" of epistemological origin. The scientific method, however, transformed natural philosophy into an empirical and experimental activity unlike the rest of philosophy. By the end of the eighteenth century it had begun to be called "science" to distinguish it from philosophy. Thereafter, metaphysics denoted philosophical enquiry of a non-empirical character into the nature of existence.
