the three directions associated
with “arrows’… 001, 010, and 100
in the binary code… are here
colored yellow, red, and blue
(it didn’t reproduce as well as
one would’ve liked).
these so-called “primary” colors
(for pigments; for colored lights
the rules are different) blend
along the appropriate cross-sections
of the diagram (the easy-to-see
ones with the arrows attached)…
*or* the sides of the triangle:
yellow and red form orange,
yellow and blue form green,
red and blue form purple.
blending *opposite* colors…
the primary/”secondary” pairs
yellow/purple, red/green, blue/orange…
gives a muddy brown (“mahogany”
sez crayola) and again the appropriate
cross-sections of the cube (and lines
of the “fano plane” triangle) associate
the appropriate “blends” with the
pairs-of-pigments combining to form them.
finally, there’s the weird cross-section
(the 3-5-6 arc in the fano diagram)
consisting of all three secondaries.
on the cube diagram, this appears
as a tetrahedron-through-the-origin
rather than a plane-through-the-origin.

we now return to zeerox-friendly B&W.
