we have access to anywhere between 2.3% and 0.0035% of the total electromagnetic spectrum. and that’s only considering the spectrum we know of, there are probably levels of the spectrum going out on both sides that are beyond our knowledge and understanding.
we see visible light, that is the tiny little band i mention above. thus our scale is quite small in physical sense terms, and i wonder what the world would look like if we expanded this scale. colors and depth are built out of frequency/wavelength patterns. with access to more scale, we might even see new colors and new degrees of depth, we might even be able to see into the human body and the organs and see where there is health and disorder, we might even be able to see into the mind and into the “soul”, see ideas and thoughts as if they were physical objects. an emotion might have a specific “color” and “shape”, etc.

You have little ears; you have my ears:
Put a clever word in them! —
Must one not first hate oneself, in order to love oneself? ...
I am your labyrinth ...”. -N
“A man is not great if he is not small, and he is not small if he is not great. Concepts flirt with the loss of their significance in the oscillation between ambiguous states, and this is in part the function and purpose of concepts.” -Primer on Meaning
