A better question yet is why purple doesn’t have rubkiks cubes.March 20, 2016 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #1143047GoldilocksParticipant

Rubik’s cubes don’t have pink because they have red.March 21, 2016 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #1143049MenoParticipant
Because then it wouldn’t be a cube anymoreMarch 21, 2016 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #1143050
It could be a cube with three primary and three secondary colors.March 21, 2016 8:47 pm at 8:47 pm #1143051The QueenParticipant
Rebyid, why don’t you patent a rubik’s cube with lavender, purple, pink, lilac, violet and mauve.
I’m sure it will be a best seller with elementary school girls. Put a a hello kitty in the middle of each side for superior sales. I’ll take a 10% cut for the idea.March 21, 2016 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm #1143052balanceisthekeyParticipant
Purple is the color of Malchus; its beyond the ‘six sides’ of the different colors because it encompasses and integrates them all (See the Ramban’s explanation of the Mitzvah of putting Techeiles on tzitzis). If anything, it would be in the central core of the cube, where all the colors are connected together!

RebYidd23, why is the fact that Rubik’s cubes have red a good reason why Rubik’s cubes don’t have pink?? If that’s the case I could also say that the reason the Rubik’s cube doesn’t have purple is because it has blue!!March 22, 2016 12:26 am at 12:26 am #1143054
Pink is just a tint of red. Purple is not a tint of blue, it’s its own color.March 22, 2016 8:01 pm at 8:01 pm #1143055MenoParticipant
According to the internet, it seems the logic behind the coloring is that adding (or removing) the color yellow from any side will produce the color of the opposite side (e.g. white is opposite yellow, because white + yellow = yellow).
Purple isn’t created by adding yellow to anything, and adding yellow to purple would produce something grossMarch 22, 2016 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #1143056🐵 ⌨ GamanitParticipant
By that logic I vote to swap out green with purple, and switch around the order. Then the adding/removing will be red.
