Fantastic Chris one of the best breakdowns on color and the humans perception and measurement of it. Please keep up the Great Work !

Thanks for this! I’ve read about this 1000 different ways, and it’s finally starting to make sense. One question remains for me though, and I’m sure the answer is math-based, but here goes. If the 3 primaries in the 1931 diagram are imaginary, how were the observers able to combine them to create the visible colors? Or, more realistically, how were the real observations mapped into the new space with the imaginary colors?
