Abstract: The purpose of this article is to analyze the cardinality of the continuum using Ramsey theoretic statements about open colorings or ``open coloring axioms.'' In particular it will be shown that the conjunction of two well-known axioms, $\textbf{OCA}_{\textrm{[ARS]}}$ and $\textbf{OCA}_{\textrm{[T]}}$, implies that the size of the continuum is $\aleph_2$.
