We all perceive the world a little differently, and new research suggests our ancestors may not have been able to see the color blue. Data shows that in “The Odyssey,” Greek poet Homer famously describes the sea as “wine-dark,” and there is also no mention of blue in the Koran, ancient Chinese stories, or in an ancient Hebrew version of the bible. Egyptians were the only culture that produced blue dyes, and were the first ancient civilization to have a word for the color blue. Today, the Himba people in Namibia still don’t have a word for the color blue, but have several different words for green. A recent study in Russia also focused on how Russian speakers have separate words for light blue and dark blue. It seems that while colors may be the same around the world, the language in which they are described has an impact on how they are perceived. (Daily Mail)(photo:
