Actually, I was going by the Emotional Spectrum as illustrated in the Green Lantern comics. There is so much more that just will, as the following shows:


But I thought that the colors (via the phrase "Roy G. Biv") were a part of nature as revealed separating the colors of white light via a prism.

However, regardless of the theoretical concept that someone chooses to consider when contemplating the nature and structure of the universe, the win is now mine!

The spectrum of colour from Red to Violet is natural, but the precise division up into separate colours is rather arbitrary and varies from language to language and culture to culture.

Red, Green and Blue are fundamental, but there's no particular reason why we should declare that there are two colour between red and green instead of none or one.

I've read studies on that. It's all part of the Information Visualization area of study. In this case it's in the Cognitive Psychology area.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

A large number of fake and counterfeit wins have been discovered, and many more are believed to be in circulation. These wins are not of the usual standard and have been determined to be dangerous and liable to explode in the users' possessions. Anyone seeing a win is strongly advised to move quickly and quietly away from the win, and when safe to report its discovery.

A further announcement will be made when the source of these fake wins has been identified and the source of wins is again reliable.

Thank you for your cooperation.
