Have you seen this:

I am colorblind.  It's not digital, there is simply a reduced number of
detectors for red.  You've forced me to overthink redness for years. :)

I would hope to bypass the simulation of light and color and ineffable
redness... to just read the object's properties directly from the metadata
information. Partly this is informed by my understanding as a programmer.

Life in a metaverse may at first be semi-recognizable in the way first
"pages" on the internet were similar to newspaper or journal articles...
but i suspect we'll quickly abandon internet-informed modalities as we gain
comfort with not-yet-invented UX conventions.
