The strong force has 3 "poles". To think about them in a human
fashion, we name them "red", "green" and "blue", and the theory
describing the strong force is called "quantum chromodynamics". It
doesn't seem beyond the human mind at all.

I dare say if we had a reason to have a theory with four poles,
someone will come up with a way of thinking about these too.
