Abstract. It is still a mystery why colors emerge from the black and white pattern of Benham's top. After a brief overview of previous research on subjective colors, this article explains the nature of color and how we humans perceive a color. This article also introduces a hypothesis about subjective colors based on neuronal stimulation, the characteristics of sensation, and in particular neural transmission delay.
