"Invisible Thoughts"

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
Alpha Alpha Lambda Chapter, Inc.
Founded October 13, 1926

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1

Is it possible that there's a color that our eye couldn't see? Like all of us are color blind to it.

If there is, is it possible to detect/identify it?
Without defining what you mean by color more specifically, this is an unanswerable question. If you define color as a given wavelength of light between 400-700nm then, there are lots of hidden colors. If you define color as those wavelengths that the brain can identify as unique, then there can be no hidden colors by definition.

Give a baseline for normal, define the term "human eye"

There are "sounds" we cannot hear
There are many things we cannot sense
yet, they are real, present and obvious
to those who know the signs
It is never said above a whisper
It is never written to be "seen"

My Line Name is
"Invisible Man"

It is always communicated with discretion is not a secret, many Brothers write their line name boldly on their crossing jacket, but my name is never spoken to be heard or written to be seen, and because it was never spoken above a whisper - it was said often, yet never heard except by me - I don't remember the name, face or voice of the person who gave me my name, yet we spoke often - it was written often for anyone to see, yet never seen - but, it was always there "black on black" "old gold on old gold" etc - if you drag your cursor to the right of my name at the top of every page, you will SEE "The Invisible Man" - always present and yet invisible on every page of this website - I am listening, I am watching, I am striving, I am An Invisible Man, and there are others, I've spoken to them, but I've never seen or heard any of them, and I'm 100% sure they don't remember seeing me.

Because of my respect for Bro. Dr. Oscar Harrell (Gamma, 1960) Director of the Tufts African-American House, other fraternities didn't interest me.
Bro. Harrell describes me as "quiet yet effective,"

competitors may say "silent but deadly."

It's as if I am invisible.

I first met the Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. in 1983.
We were always close.
We would meet in Boston to study together.
We shook hands at the Centennial Convention in 2006.
We hadn't seen each other in over 20 years.
Alpha was always deep in my heart.
Alpha was always deep in my soul.
I was always encouraged to believe in Alpha For Life.

...and, so I am called "The Invisible Man"

Can you see me now?

Invisible Man won the U.S. national Book Award for fiction in 1953.

"I am an invisible man. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me."
Ralph Ellison
