While some of these candles are obviously purple, others have more of a pink tinge to them. Taking it back to the color wheel, in order to create purple it requires the mixing of primary colors red and blue. White is necessary to lighten the shade of purple, and white and red are required for pink. Therefore, red is the common thread between them all. My train of thought in respect of this picture is that no type of epilepsy is exactly the same. People react differently to the amount of ‘color’ they have within their brain which ultimately dictates what ‘shade’ their seizures and epilepsy will be.
We are all familiar with purple and pink but what about the shades in between such as: lavender, light medium orchid, eggplant purple, bright ube, dark pastel purple, purpureus, phlox, amethyst, royal purple, patriarch? As this is a small glimpse into the many variations of this red and blue color mix as is the same with epilepsy. So many different types, a plethora of different seizures and no one person is a replica of another.
