How do I produce neutral colors with light?

Making Light of Neutrals

Neutrals are produced in the Additive Color System by mixing red, blue and green light. Equal amounts of these three colors produce white light. Grays and blacks are produced by equal amounts of red, green and blue light of different levels of intensity. Less intensity of these three colors produces a neutral with less lightness.
