Black & White

Black or white
Good or Bad
I wonder sometimes. What if we only had the possibility to see in black and white? What if we saw no color? Would we then be so obsessed with defining and separating the one from the other, or would we start seeing everything as a whole? Would we then become either or? or would we become everything and see everything as a part of ourselves.
Lions cannot percieve any color. The eyes are proportionally larger than in comparable-sized animals and have round pupils.
A reflective coating at the back of the eye reflects even moonlight, making their eyes appear to glow red in the dark. The coating gives lions sight eight times better than a human at night. A white circle below the eye helps reflect light into the eyes.
Lions have round pupils instead of vertical slits, as are found in domestic cats. The vertical slits make an animal better able to focus sharply on small prey for example. They do not see color but maybe they see things a bit clearer then us after all?
