Question: Why children paint trees blue or grass red?
Young children may colour trees blue or grass red because their memories can't "bind" together the colour and shape of an object.
Because the brain stores colour and shape in different groups of neurons.

Or maybe they draw it that way because they haven't been influenced to draw it the way it'd be more widely accepted.

Its a "memory" of the future that has been implanted in them.

Watch the movie "Knowing" with Nicolas Cage.

Question authority every time. Ask them how that makes them feel. Ask them why? Ask them when you have an opinion with your opinion and question them with that! There is no being with ALL THE answers accept for God. Even still question. But trust if it's all good and loving then follow with your full heart believing. For the light will always be the light. It makes me a believer.

Re: Question: Why children paint trees blue or grass red?
Remembering back....

When I painted things the "wrong" color I was either trying to be different and not one of the group OR...

I had issues with the paint or crayons.

I remember being forced to stay in at recess with a VERY angry teacher repainting a picture because the grass in it was bluish purple.

The fact was, I just didn't know how to mix blue and yellow to make green and the Yellow had been mixed with other colors anyway, so I ended up with brown grass.

That was marginally acceptable apparently, but that teacher DID try to have me places in special ed...

Luckily my Mother said NO. :)

It turns out that my I.Q. was simply off the scale In a positive direction and that the teacher couldn't understand me because I was more intelligent than she was.

Go figure!

Later, over the course of years, I did learn to paint with the "right" colors and dumb down the things I was saying so that I was understood most of the time.
And all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "save us!"

And I'll look down and whisper "No."
