The pink color does not really exist

The pink color does not actually exist. That is, of course he is, but only in our imagination, scientists say.

The problem is that pink is a combination of red and violet, two colors that are on opposite sides of the spectrum of the rainbow.

Rosy can not exist in nature without in order not to bend the rainbow colors to red and purple mingled that it is theoretically impossible.

Color - is the way our brain and vision, and when you look at a pink object that actually do not see pink wavelength of light. He seems rosy because certain wavelengths of light reflected while others are absorbed, being depressed pigments. Thus the pink is a reflective, rather than transmitting the color that people see, because the brain converts the light reflected from it.

In fact, pink should be called "negative green" color, as it is residual from exposure to white, when we remove the green.
