So, my red is not their red!..The color rainbow that a tetrachromat sees is out of the perception and imagination zone of most humans. I think that these are the "mutants", where the nature is testing its evolutionary tricks to see what other adjustments have to be done in their brain wiring and switches and knobs. Perhaps in some years ahead, tetrachromats will be majority. Can we speed up this evolutionary process. That is the right question.
