### Color Theory ~ The Neutral Color Wheel

The Neutral Color Wheel

Alignment A: Absolute (Perfect) Alignment
+White - White ∞ All Colors
&
Alignment B:  Relative (Flawed) Alignment
+Black + -Black = 0. No color

Remember:  Primary colors are subjective.  The importance of calling colors “primary” matters only in explaining one color’s position relative to another color.9  They just have to be consistent throughout the paradigm.

The Tertiary Colors of the Order Color Wheel, as well as the Chaos Color Wheel, are the primary/secondary colors of the Neutral Color Wheel!

Simple Neutral Color Wheel
Interactions of Neutrality Within Order & Chaos
This can be read clockwise or counter clockwise.

Cyan Blue + Magenta Red Purple
Purple + Orange Magenta Red
Magenta Red + Green Yellow Orange
Orange + Green Cyan Green Yellow
Green Yellow + Cyan Blue Green Cyan
Green Cyan + Purple Cyan Blue

The Colors are grouped:

Group A: Cyan Blue, Magenta Red, & Green Yellow
Group B: Purple, Orange, & Green Cyan

If any one color in Group A takes on a charge, all of the colors in that group take on the same charge, and all of the colors in Group B take on the opposite charge. (And Vice-Versa)  This is called polarization.

Complementary Colors are as follows:
Cyan Blue + Orange = Gray
Purple + Green Yellow Gray
Magenta Red +  Green Cyan = Gray

Comprehensive Neutral Color Wheel
~ Featuring the Neutral Primary Colors of Order & Chaos~

Alignment A: Absolute (Perfect) Alignment (+White - White ∞ All Colors )
&
Alignment B:  Relative (Flawed) Alignment (+Black + -Black = 0. No color)

This creates the following colors:

Cyan Blue + Purple Blue
Purple Magenta Red = Magenta
Magenta Red + Orange = Red
Orange + Green Yellow = Yellow
Green Yellow + Green Cyan = Green
Green Cyan + Cyan Blue = Cyan

Or
±  +  ±  =  ±
neutral plus neutral equals neutral

The Tertiary Colors of the Neutral Color Wheel are the primary colors of the Order Color Wheel, as well as the Chaos Color Wheel!

Neutrals can be positive, negative, or neutral.  Tertiary color charge is determined by the composite colors.

Example #9, When solving for +Yellow
If
Green  Yellow + Orange +Yellow
And
-   +   -   =   +
Then
-Green  Yellow + -Orange +Yellow

However, because of polarization, this cannot be true!  The charge must therefore be determined by the following method:

+   +   +   +   =   +

Example #10, When solving for +Yellow

+Green  Yellow + -Orange +Yellow
This can also be expressed as:
+Green  Yellow + (½ +Green  Yellow   + ½ +Magenta Red) = +Yellow
Or
+   +   +   +   =   +

Example #11, When solving for -Yellow

+Green  Yellow
This can also be expressed as:
-Orange + ½ -Green Cyan) + -Orange -Yellow
Or
-   +   -   +   -    =   -
