These colours encompass the colour science primaries of red, green, blue, and also the colour psychology opponent colour-pairs; red-green and yellow-blue. To experience colour requires both the science and the psychology.

It is suggested that the inclusion of the otherwise superfluous Hebrew word “ET” at the start of creation, which comprises of the Hebrew letters Alef and Tet, the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet, alludes to the alphabet being created first.

As evident in this image, the flash of primary colours, representing the initial release of primeval light, these  are fortuitously the colours of the first four words of Creation, the  foundation of the Gematriart Torah and comparable to the alphabet reference of the written Torah. Furthermore, the last four words of Creation – the end of day seven, the sabbath are likewise a sequence of the four primary colours.
