Among the Maya, both south and east were identified as red or yellow, and in the
records of the Aztecs we find north as black, white, yellow or red; south as blue,
red or yellow; east as red, green-white or yellow; and west as white or black,
yellow, red or green. Modern commentators on a single manuscript, the Codex
Borgia, have been puzzled that the colours given to the directions have varied
from page to page.-4 Riley has summarized the problem in by now very familiar

The brain then assimilates the red, blue-violet, and green impulses and mixes

THE COLOUR OF LIFE Red has been praised for its nobility as the colour of life.
But the true colour of life is not red. Red is the colour of violence, or of life broken
open, edited, and published. Or if red is indeed the colour of life, it is so only on

in the act of betrayal and of waste. Red is the secret of life, and not the
manifestation thereof. It is one of the things the value of which is secrecy, one of
the talents ...
