Il Penseroso

I wake in the other morning, and I start thinking. I don’t know when I get into this mood if my thoughts/internal discussions are ridiculous or deep. So, this is one of those mornings when I go into a trance and think weird stuff.
How do you know that red to other people is the red you see? I mean: I can see the color red, and I call it red. Other people’s red could be different from mine. Their red could be my green. So, how come we are so sure that we all see the same colors and call them the same names?

    Your psychology professor is a nutcase. I don’t think he’s qualified to be asked that question.

    I want an answer;\

    My world is hotter;D

    hmmmmmmmmm where is my comment! ;/ I know I commented or was I just dreaming. I know it was late at night, and I was so into the song you had on. I love the song you put up because last night was the first time I blog at home in a long time and I always have the sound off at work! I love the song, it rocks, you rock, this topic rocks, Poshlust rocks!

    We have thought of this before, my cousins and I but we couldn’t come to an answer. When I think of it now, if you convert the colors to black and white, they should become a gradient of some type right. This at least sets a standard. If colors are different then so would the idea of brightness and darkness, don’t you think so.

    You were probably high on the fact that you were blogging at home after a long time. I’m flattered. Thank you. *takes a bow*

    That’a a good theory. They should set the standard. Hmmm… Yes, I do think so.

    Best answer I have so far:)

    everyone sees everything in a different way. its like a metaphor. people see different colors.. its the same color its just different views or names they call it… but thats a hard question that needs thinking.
    I believe that people already do view things differently and in contrast to what others think..colors is the same story because its what you were taught from the beginning that sort of sticks with you

    But aren’t we all taught the same thing?

  12. 123baid

    You just have to assume we all see the same thing.

    check what they do if they are the first car at the trafic light ;) ?

    That’s not fun;\

    The Simper
    Yes, but they are taught that whatever color light they see is the one they should go or stop at. For example, if their red is blue, they call it red, and red means stop.

    Zed
    Are you sure that the red you see is the same as the red your friend sees? Could he be seeing your green and calling it red?

    too much red!!!

    Visualize, make the red whatever color you like. That is, if you see the same red I see and not my blue or green;)

    we are all taught the same thing, but no one notices that we see different things!
