This chapter begins with discussions of falsehood, chromatic atomism, chromatic states, and the false-colour model. It presents three conjectures: that qualitative identity is naught but a global failure to discriminate; that we should resuscitate resemblance nominalism for colours, if not for all sensory qualities; and that in sensory systems the root relation from which order derives is not similarity, but difference.

Keywords:   sentience, falsehood, chromatic atomism, false-colour model
