    but why green? did the high plant council just up and decide to be sunlight bigots and outlaw the absorbtion of green?

    seems kinda arbitrary.

    I don't know enough about biology to answer that question. I know I've heard the answer before in one of my many biology classes in the past, but biology was never a subject of interest for me.

    I'm sure you can find the answer somewhere on the Internet.

    biology can explain the "how" plants appear green but not the "why" green and not another color. since we're all about the esoteric discussions, i figured, why not ask?

    Plants aren't green. They are magenta. They just reflect all of the green light that hits them and they absorb the rest. That's why they appear green.

    I just finished a philosophy senior seminar called "Color and Consciousness" and according to the best color science and psychology many philosophers believe that the world is not actually colored, or if you want a physical explanation it is going to be so gerrymandered and complex that it's almost useless. If you are curious google up Lawrence Hardin or Alex Byrne. I will warn you, it's pretty dense stuff full of both difficult science and heavy contempory philosophical jargon.

    The conclusion I think I've decided on after dealing with this for a semester is that colors are products of our perceptual systems, objects are not colored as such but are simply the arbitrary product of evolution of visual systems in a carbon-based world with a certain light spectrum from the sun. Trying to explain colors physically will result in a system that is uselessly arbitrary, but at the end of the day it doesn't matter much since we all have similar enough perceptual systems to make color judgements useful and indeed often beautiful. The fact that they are primarily illusory is troublesome only when wearing your philosophers hat.

    Yes, it is only a frequency of radiation. Or is it even that? :)...

    Good question.

    Indeed:
