The Four Shades Of Grey Matter: A blog that discusses the four shades of grey and how they are used in certain fields.
There is no such thing as black and white, everything exists in some shade of grey. This blog aims to explain the four shades of grey and how they are applied in various fields, such as philosophy, psychology, and technology.

What is the “Grey Zone?”
The term “grey zone” refers to a zone of uncertainty between two categories. For example, the boundary between law and illegal activity can be described as a grey zone.
Grey zones are particularly prevalent in law enforcement and legal matters, but have become increasingly important in military affairs. In international relations, the “grey zone” has replaced the Cold War concept of a bi-polar world dominated by superpowers.
I have always been a fan of using different shades of grey in my work. The most common grey used is the 50% because it is the easiest to use and understand. However, I think it is important to know that there are four different shades of grey that can be used.
The first shade of grey is the 25% grey. This shade of grey can be used as a background colour or as a fill colour in an object. For example if you had a black shape on a white background, you could use 25% grey on the outside of the object to create a highlight effect.
Next is the 50% grey. This is the most commonly used shade as I mentioned above because it is easy to use and understand. It can be used as either a foreground colour or as a background colour depending on what you are doing. Many times I will use 50% grey for text on white backgrounds or for objects that need to stand out from their surroundings.
Thirdly we have 75% grey. This shade can be used for text and objects but it will not stand out very much from a white background so it should only really be used when you want something to blend into its environment like text on top of an image or as part of a logo or icon design
There are four shades of grey matter that make up the human brain. They are the cerebrum, the cerebellum, the midbrain and the brainstem. Each of these parts have a different role in the body, from thinking to breathing.
Cerebrum: This is the largest part of the brain, which makes it pretty much responsible for most things. It is split into two halves which are connected by a thick band of nerves called the corpus callosum. The cerebrum controls our bodies movement, but also processes information like pain, touch and smell.
Cerebellum: This is located at the back of head just above the neck. It is responsible for coordinating all voluntary movements and keeps us balanced when we’re walking or running.
Midbrain: Located on top of spinal cord and below cerebellum, this part of brain controls eye movement and helps us focus our vision on objects that are moving or stationary. It also transmits sensory information from sense organs to higher centers within nervous system through thalamus (a large mass located deep inside skull).
Brainstem: You can find this part at base of skull where it connects together with spinal cord so as to send messages between body’s other organs (heart rate/ blood
