The Nerves

Impulses in different colours – red, blue, violet, yellow, etc., are transmitted through the optical fibre with such speed that is so high, that we are not capable to detect these impulses as separated tones – they become invisible and changes into a calmly floating white light. There are about 11’200’000 different colour, intensity and length impulses transmitted per second. This number is equal to the amount of bits that whole human nerve system can abstract. By comparison our consciousness can process only 10 – 60 bits per second.
