call me stupid or don't, but wouldn't it be cool to have black light sabers. somone said thats the absense of colour but i thought it was all colour.

Don't get me wrong, I think it would be awesome to have a black saber. And it was me that said that, but I didn't say it was the absence of all colors. that's white. I said black is the absence of light . You can't argue with that because what color light would a black saber put off? There isn't one. Black is darkness and the absence of light. It would be a shadow saber if it was black. Black does not emit light unless it was like a true black light in which case it would be more of a purple.

then we could call it a shadow saber for dark jedi who chose the path of darness..opposed to an all white light saber for the goody2shoes jedi knights

I dunno if it would work that way.....the whole way a lightsaber works, It concentrates a beam of light through the crystal or something like that. You can'y channel shadows in the same way. Then again it's fiction so I guess anything can happen.

perhaps you could make a black crystal

Just get a really dark purple one.
But yeah It would be awsome, but I dont think it would work unfournatley. Becuase even balck lights are jsut a weird purple colour . O well maybe well get lucky, and het somehting like that.

A black crystal wouldn't help. You're just not getting it. There is no black light. Black is the total absence of light. Nowhere in the color spectrum can you find black. You cannot put together any combination of colors in the spectrum that will give you black. If you put all the colors of light together you get white light.

That's right, thanks for pointing that out mike. In light, white is the presence of all color. It's in paint and stuff that black is the presence of all color.

I think the darkest you could get would be a deep purple or dark blue or red, but nothing transmits black as a color, through a jewel or crystal.

Depends, if the crystals that are used can create all the colours. This I have not seen anywhere and highly doubt exist.

That, of course, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. :)

I have heard the argument that black is all the colours.
This argument claims that all the light around us is absorbed by something that is black. Therefor no light is reflected and it looks black. Therefor all the colours are in that object and none are coming out (reflecting off of it).

Get that?

it would still be real cool if you could imagine having 2 light sabers or a duel bladed one that was black and white heh heh

Would it be possible to have a two-colored light sabre? Like Christopher Lee has in the movie?

05-10-2002, 04:24 PM
Do you mean in the game? At this point we don't know, but I kind of doubt it.
