Actually, in the artist's world of "pigment", black is the presence of all colored pigment and white is the abscence of all colored pigment (escept white, of course).

In the physicist's world of "light", black is the abscence of light and white light is the presence of the full spectrum of light.

These two statements are not contradictory.

A recent thread bounced around with the semantics involved in discudssing this.
