The primary sense of humans works by detected the light which reflects off of objects. Ergo to avoid detection by humans, one should dress one's self in garments which reflect as little light as possible.

like purple

The best color is something that blends in with whatever environment you're in. Black is actually a pretty horrible color for stealth because your silhouette is going to stand out(solid color) and the color itself is going to contrast horribly with most surfaces.

As >>26783346 points out, vision doesn't work on simply receiving reflected rays of light, but actually assembling said information into a coherent picture with discrete objects. Hence camouflage.

Why is military camouflage all pixilated?

>> No.26783428

>>26783408
To have as few (or as small) chunks of solid colour. As reasonbly possible. Helps break up outlines and blend you in more.

Because most high-end optical bits are digital, and pixilated camo makes you look twice as blurry on the other end of a camera.

Actually no.
We detect movement, differences in surroundings and have this weird ability to know when someone looks upon us.

Therefore: standing still, looking like part of surroundings with closed eyes.

... I actually have an old 'ninja warrior' handbook thing that explains some of the more advanced concepts of some of this. A lot of it will seem pretty obvious.

- Avoid sight by obscuring direct line of sight
-If you cannot avoid direct line of sight, attempt to wear something that camouflages you in the environment you're in.
-If that isn't at all available, look like you belong in a place (ninja got away with all sorts of shit by basically dressing like cooks / housemaids / janitors etc).
-Acting like you belong in a place is important for maintaining the previous deception.

This is just retardedly obvious things that I've remembered off the top of my head. When it came to combat a lot of ninjitsu was predicated on oblique strikes and fun slight of hand stuff - where they obscure your vision by throwing sharpened coins at your eyes then stabbing you somewhere else, or by spitting needles at your face and stabbing you etc.

We are programmed to respond to movement. But we detect movement with sensory organs such as our eyes.

Please. You would not autism if Temple Grandin drove a cattle drive over you with each cow having a page of a textbook on Neurological conditions and learning disabilities done in steel plates fixed to each of it's hooves.
