Imagine this:

If everyone saw colors differently. Like what you saw was red, would be someone else's blue.


You were taught to recognize the shades you see as those certain colors, so we all acknowledge these shades as "red" or "blue", even though we might see them differently.

And nobody would ever be able to find out, because you can't just "see" what someone else does.

Wouldn't really work.

You both see what you interpret as red.

LOL it's called Color blindness

Color-blindness is easy to identify, because the certain shades are less obvious for color blind people.

I'm talking about PERCEIVING these colors differently, because what you see as a green, I might see as your blue, but we both acknowledge it as a green because that is what we are taught to put name to that shade.

Basically, take two colors. Green and Blue. You see a green and blue, whereas I see a blue from what YOU perceive as green, though this doesn't matter, as we are taught that this one shade is BLUE, what we see before us is BLUE.

That's not possible. Colours are not determined by an individual they are predefined by their wavelengths. Our eyes merely change the photonic energy into a chemical electrical signal that is interpreted by the brain.

Everyone sees colours similarly because the rods and cones the make up the eyes are the same in every human and the signals are transferred the same way and the brain interprets it the same.

Well, way to ruin the fun.

Good explanation though.
