The mnemonic Roy G. Biv is the name of an imaginary person with the initials RGB, which recalls “red, green, blue” which are the names of the light primaries, also known as the primary colors, I noticed. This is in addition to its well-known function of recalling the classic seven colors of the rainbow “red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet”.

I published the ideas of this article about two weeks ago but I can’t find my way back to that account, and so I am republishing it here.

In the “nature versus nurture” debate, it’s worth noting that how each person turns out is due to an interaction of nature with nurture, and not one or other.

Also, we should bear in mind that the effect of the environment on an individual (nurture) is in part determined by his genetic endownment (nature). For example, a child has an inborn desire to bond with his mother, which makes it easier for his mother to socialize him. And the way she socializes him will be in part determined by her own genetic endowment. Partly that will be determined by how she was socialized, which will in turn be due in part to her own genetic endowment and that of her mother.
