Oh. Sorry if I jumped the gun there with an over-simplification. The only experience I have in this line which involves *colors* is caused by the involuntary gaze flicker which can produce a liminal surround of *complementary* hue to the object looked at (an after-image, in fact). A red pencil will have a green `aura'. If your method is more technicolor than that, can you describe how to induce it?
