  • Quantum chromodynamics deals with differences in perception of shades of color among individuals, populations, and species. Color vision is most acute in species that spend part of their lives in nuclear families (e.g, birds and humans), where the strong nuclear force promotes bonding. Where familial bonds are absent, weak nuclear forces govern, causing insensitivity to the meaning of shades.
