In the link above, Beau Lotto, explains and even demonstrates how "color is the simplest thing the brain can do, context is everything." However, he explains that the amount of light that falls into our eyes means absolutely nothing. The information that we process is what gives meaning to what we see. He basically states that we learn to see. He proved it in one of his demonstrations by using two like pictures of the desert on the bottom and on the top he had two pictures. On the left was the color green and on the right was the color red. He had us staring at the two top colors for about 30 seconds and then when we focused our attention at the two like deserts at the bottom, the colors on the top were incorporated on the bottom. Proving his statement about us learning to see.
