How is it possible that when one watches a color television screen, one perceives the three base colors of the pixels as if it were a mix tone of these base frequencies, proportional to the relative intensity of the different pixels? It puzzles me! Hope someone knows how this is possible.
Missing from the discussion is the fact that your eye does not resolve the individual pixels. If it did (for example, watching TV through a magnifying lens), you would indeed see each individual pixel, just like looking at a magnified color print reveals the individual dots of (discrete) colored ink.
