a Nancy Tappe website....
Indigos is a label associated with recent generations of individuals born around the globe. They were originally seen and identified by Nancy Ann Tappe (1931-2012) as a part of the color system which evolved from her synesthetic perceptions. Nancy's lifetime work with the science of color has persuaded her and thousands of others that color is one language that can be used to distinguish and identify elements of the human personality.
Indigos bring change to every level of the human experience through their universal task: to globalize humanity through technology. Their energy today is constantly changing and fast, almost hyperactive. Technology is an innate talent and skill for them; cellphones are an extension of their body.
There are four groups or types of Indigo: Humanists, Artists, Conceptualists, and Catalysts. Each type is described more fully on this site.
Indigo was only one of twelve life colors that Nancy Tappe has seen her entire life in the human electromagnetic energy field. Originally Nancy saw eleven colors, but that changed in the late 1960's and early 1970's when she noticed another color among infants. She called it indigo, a color between blue and violet in the color spectrum. It took her forty years to identify and clarify consistent patterns of Indigo behavior and influence. Her information system about life colors came from her study of color and the human personality.
Nancy's form of synesthesia was very rare; she saw color and tasted shape. The reader can find more information about Nancy herself and her perceptions on her own website. Another fascinating synesthete is Derek Amato, recently featured on Ingenious Minds. Derek crosses sound and shape, seeing / composing his music via a constantly streaming series of black and white squares.
Today scientists around the world are studying synesthesia to determine how it affects the minds and bodies of those who have this strange and wonderful brain trait. They are finding that synesthesia is becoming more common, now affecting as many as one in twenty people. Neuroscientists are racing to find the genetic link since it usually runs in families.
The purpose of this website is to present Nancy's information about the Indigo life color and the effect that Indigos are having on mankind today. This website only presents Nancy Ann Tappe's view of the Indigo life color and personality as she interpreted them synesthetically.
