Can anyone please offer an explanation about how it's possible for a camera to determine, or more likely, make an educated guess at the illumination CT of a scene which does not contain an area of white?

Edited to add:
I'm really asking how it's possible to determine the CT of INCIDENT light when the only information available is REFLECTED light from a totally unknown subject/scene?

Pete
