Surely color blind people (basically use 2 primary colorness qualities to
represent visual knowledge) and normal trichromats (basically 3 primary
colorness qualities) are going to at least want to upgraded what they
represent their visual world with 4 primary colorness qualities, like the
rare tetrachromats do.  To say nothing of likely being able to
discover primary colors no human has ever experienced before, and mapping
even more of the visual spectrum into maybe 10 or more colorness
qualities.  To say nothing of representing information other than visual

Would you guys always want to use the same colorness  pallet to represent
everything with, or would you ever want to change things up a bit?

I, for one, as a plain old trichromat, can't wait to find out what that 4th
primary color is like tetrochromats can experience, to say nothing of
discovering and finding out what other colorness qualities exist in this
