  • I Have a Ball.

    I have a spherical ball. It is made of plastic and it is hollow. It is also blue.

    Is it more blue than it is spherical?

    This is an actual question and has an actual answer, I know it, do you?

    I dare you to answer.

    Edit: I shall reveal the answer once I feel that you all have stretched your minds a sufficient distance.

        How exactly can one compare shape to surface? I'd say their about equal consider the color and shape are of the same substance. Unless you used paint to make it blue it should be equal.

          A little tidbit to tantalise your intellectual tastebuds:

          Blue is a color, a refraction of light off of an object in one spectrum and into our eyes then perceived by the brain as to be blue. Blue has a short wavelength compared to red. It exists in the visible spectrum between Cyan and Violet, It also has a wavelength of ~ 440-485 nm, the second to last of the smallest color wavelengths. And if you were to put the ball in a windowless lightless room, there would be no light to produce the blue hue of the ball. Wavelength is also two dimensional, unlike the three dimensional ball.

          However, if you were to smash the ball, you would completely change it's spherical shape, making it two dimensional, just like the wave.

          So, the question remains, is it more spherical or more blue?

            It's purple if you shine a red light through it.

                  I have it. It's both and neither.
                  We have light which exist only if their is a source of light with it's properties being altered depending on the light shined within it. Likewise mentioned about that a different colored light(other than white or blue) making the though of it being blue subjective to the light reflected on it and it's hollow nature.

                  Likewise the shape you said it was a ball and spherical but you didn't say it was entirely round. It has a spherical shape but isn't a complete sphere like say a football or a hockey puck(yeah they call that a ball). With this variable open it can be interpreted many ways. Without a diameter too much is left to the mind itself.

                  The answer is completely subjective to one's physical perception.

                      Mathematically, spherical implies perfect roundness already.

                        Sounds like boredom.

                        I can make up crap too.

                        Here's one:
                        I have a bottle of soda, I drink the soda. Does the soda still exist?

                        Blah, blah, blah, etc, etc, etc.

                            It's more blue, since you did not state the sphere was perfectly round, which is only attainable in zero gravity. A perfect blue is able to be produced by the ink-jet printer on my desk here.

                              I guess it's more blue since spheres only exist in theory. Even something that
                              looks like a perfect sphere would get jaggy if you look on an atomical level.
