Colours don't exist outside the brain, but are generated from the different waves of light hitting the retina. Magenta doesn't exist as a wave in the spectrum of light. It is a colour without a single wavelength to be matched with, unlike the other colours of the spectrum. When we see the two ends of the visible light spectrum (red and violet) at the same time, our brains construct a bridge between them. The result is "seeing magenta". We also see magenta as the complementary colour of green (middle of spectrum). Look at a green area for a minute, then at a white area: the colour your brain will construct is magenta. See next image to try it.
