The Night Sky and the combination of all the colors

The tree reached maturity and has overcome the darkness. It must now begin to ‘plant seeds for the future.’ The color black is created when all the colors of the light spectrum have been absorbed into an object. That object has “taken control” of the colors and retained them. If one color was to “escape”, the object would no longer be black. The student has mastered the nine grades of Tae Kwon Do. He/she has “absorbed” all the knowledge of the color ranks and has overcome or “mastered” those levels of training.
