What’s your colour? Think of a number

Just like colours, the most common numbers give features, form and dimension to our world. About the most frequent – zero and one – we can say that they are like black and white, and the other primary colours – red, blue and green – are two, three and four.

To obtain the remaining numbers you must mix the colours.
Or to discover new colours, add the numbers.

[Original story in “Thinking in Numbers” – Daniel Tammet]

Qual é a sua cor? Pense num número.

Tal como as cores, os números mais comuns dão carácter, forma e dimensão ao nosso mundo. Em relação aos mais frequentes – zero e um – podemos dizer que são como o branco e o preto, com as outras cores primarias – vermelho, azul e verde – equivalentes ao dois, três e quatro.

Para obter os restantes números, misturem-se as cores.
Ou para conhecer as cores, some os números.
