    $\begingroup$ They are not required. It's hard to solve this puzzle without any hints but I think still possible. At least I feel like many other answered puzzles on this site are much harder than this puzzle. $\endgroup$ Apr 29 at 20:37

The answer to this puzzle (which fits with the sense of the title) is:

BLIND FAITH

The image is fairly straightforward to decipher if you are familiar with:

Braille, in which letters of the alphabet are encoded by arrangements of dots in a 3x2 grid.

However, you need to bear in mind the:

twist mentioned in the title. Note that in the Braille system every letter has at least one dot in the top row of the grid, for anchoring purposes. If we divide the image provided into five 3x2 grids side by side, we can see a blue dot in the top row of each grid - great. If we then read off the dots with a blue component (i.e. blue or purple) we can spell BLIND in Braille.

However, when it comes to the dots with a red component, these appear to be anchored to the bottom of the grids - there's a red (or purple) dot in the bottom row of each grid. This suggests that we need to twist the grid, i.e. rotate it by 180 degrees, to get those anchor dots on the top row, after which we can read off using the red/purple dots the word FAITH.

Thus the answer is BLIND FAITH.
