When I was little I thought that maybe colors weren’t real as such, they were just a perception. Maybe all humans share the same favorite color. Who is to say my purple isn’t your blue? I could see green and you see red when in fact it’s the same exact color being perceived differently.
After trying to open my mind so much it physically hurt, I realized that if the above paragraph is true, it would mean that all humans for some reason share a unique favorite color.
It’s easier and more logical to conceive that all humans just like different colors, that are truly, different colors.
It doesn’t mean I am saying perceptions cannot differ, but I was wrong when thinking a different “perception” would affect whether I see green or blue.
Instead a different perception is what will make me feel all fuzzy in the inside when I see something purple, while Sulz might say “uggh” at the same object.
That stopped me from thinking my purple might be your orange.
That and finding out about wavelengths.
