Say wha? Colors

Have you ever wondered if everyone sees colors the same way? Do you see red as I see red? Do you see yellow as I do? Is my red your yellow? Or is your yellow my green?

Is there really a way to be sure? If we've spent our lives seeing red as what we believe to be red, then how can we know the difference?

Just something to think about...

If you think about that a lot you should read up a bit on synesthesia...it's very interesting to see how some people perceive "typical" sensory stimuli.

Interesting idea. Many things are subjective, but I think that colors are mostly objective and that in general, human eyes and brains function similarly when it comes to experiencing colors, and smells, and tastes.

Thank you for a though-provoking start to my day!

Wow. I have never thought of that. But it would be interesting to find out what others percieve with eyes.
