The Meaning of Color
I am working on a poem/puzzle,
I'm trying to break EVERYTHING down into ten things, ten colors, five dualities.
So for I have come up with this...
White = Birth
Black = Death
Gray = Spirit
Brown = Earth
Red = Fire/lust/root chakra/
Green = plants/love/heart chakra
Yellow = air/humor/solar plexus chakra
orange = pleasure
im trying to make this correspond to the tree of life, color theory (i.e birth/black+ death/white = spirit/gray)
I would love to hear what you guys think. Thanks.

What section are you assigning 'Done' to Paul? I'm confused. 🙂
Lysenergy noted that "I realize now I should have put this in the requests section." My comment was intended to indicate that I had "done" the transfer of this thread to that Forum.

Everything is relative. Your very first correlation, if viewed in China (where it ALL seems to be upside down from our western world), the color of death is White. I have seen some very intelligent Chinese people freak out at the sight of a white paper lantern in a living person's office.
Good luck on your attempt to classify everything in ten dualities with simple +/- attributes - but be prepared to see your system break down when viewed from the viewpoint of other cultures. Even Tree-of-Life correspondences vary from star to star and from system to system.
This is an interesting pursuit, Lysenergy. You could try looking at the correspondences and combinations from a wavelength (numerical) perspective rather than a visible color perspective. This isn't without precedent.
