Currently, we as human beings are stressed out (gee, it takes a genius to figure that one out). Here’s why: Looking at diagram #1, you see a schematic diagram of the synopses of our nerves. There is currently a gap in each synapse which must be jumped electrically for our nerve signals to reach the brain, or transmit within the brain.
When you look at pink, (specifically in the shade of magenta), your brain secretes a substance called norepineferin, a neurotransmitter. This substance travels down the nerve cells, crossing the gap in our synopses allowing for much freer neurotransmission. The end result is faster mental capabilities and relaxation. It also can have serious impact on depression, ADD, and a host of other disorders.
There are several experiments that can be conducted:
-the effects of pink on neurotransmission based on mathematical ability
-the effects of pink on ADD, depression, and other mental / emotional disorders
-the effects of pink on plant growth
The effects of pink on neurotransmission
A simple experiment to conduct, a specific age group (such as younger children) with a wide assortment of “guinea pigs” is tested with some simpler to slightly complex math questions. Several different types of math sheets with various forms and complexities of math questions should be used. Several subjects should be tested on the sheets to determine average results of how long it takes to complete the sheet and how accurate the average individual answers the questions. These results would be your comparison results.
The next phase of the experiment is conducted in much the same manner except the tested subjects are either wearing pink tinted glasses, working in a pink environment (such as a small room with pink tinted windows), or even possibly just using pink paper (the neon pink paper works best) to print the math questions on.
The results are compared with the non-pink environment results to determine any effect.
As you can imagine, the hardest part is merely coming up with math questions of similar complexity, the rest is just footwork and organisation. In one very crude form of this experiment I conducted a couple of years ago, I was nothing less than stunned by the results. I do recall one girl cutting her math time to one eighth her original time for complex math questions.
If you are interested in conducting this experiment or one like it, e-mail me and I’ll give more detailed suggestions or may even be able to provide some math question sheets for the experiment to save space on this web page.
To study the effects of pink on ADD, depression, and other mental or emotional disorders:
It would be preferred that a professional phsychologist perform this kind of study, but if you’re interested, e-mail me and can provide some suggestions.
I can’t divulge details and I’d certainly not encourage anyone to do what I did (You had to have been there, I was desperate and had almost no options), but I personally used a different technique of triggering norepineferin production by a change in diet, and wound up watching it correct extreme schizophrenic halucinations in a friend of mine – within 6 hours! I was so caught up in the stress at the time I didn’t realize it worked until two days later.
Anyways, if you are a researching psychologist or psychiatrist interested in doing studies in this area (or have already – let me know the results please!), or you suffer from things like ADD or dyslexia and wish to experiment with the effects of pink light, e-mail me and I can give you more details. I really wouldn’t recommend experimenting without professional guidance of some kind though.
To study the effects of pink light on plants
Apparently botanists have found that plants grow best under pink light. I’d like to verify that by experimentation on numerous types of plants. There are other methods of plant growth encouragement I’d like to incorporate as well.
The experiment is simple; using pink plexiglass or plastic, shield your plant from normal light and allow it to experience lots of or only pink light. Have a second plant in the exact same environment but in regular light. Watch them grow! E-mail me and let me know how your experiment went!
