... its good not to use these kind of code and its better not to confuse your team and maintainers.
When I was a kid, we often went to Saturday afternoon horror or monster movie matinees. Sometimes they would show a 3-D movie that used anaglyphic viewers, cheap cardboard 'glasses' with a red or green filter over each eye. The viewers were always clearly marked as to which color filter went with which eye, right or left. Some kids always insisted on wearing the viewers backwards. They always got headaches. Something similar is happening here.
And while we're (more or less) on the topic of 50's sci-fi, and with reference to the example expression of the OP...
"Man does not look upon the face of the Gorgon and live."
Morbius, Forbidden Planet, 1956
Update: In Morbius quote: made slight correction, added reference to pertinent topic.
