I don't want to labor the point, but I am missing something here. 
Given that the color red is an experience, how can anyone say that it 
exists objectively? And given that it is an experiece, how can there 
be any difference between the statement that "the experience of the 
color red does not ecist" and the statement that "the color red does 
not exist."

Incidentally the distinction between phenomena (experience) and the 
noumena (objectibe reality) is not something discovered by me. It 
has been written about by philosophers in the west since the 
seventeenth century and is generally accepted by scientists today. 
It is also fundamental to Blavatsky's SD. although I have yet to meet 
a Theosophist who understands what she says about it.
