but... the sun is green1. ???



[1] the sun's spectrum peaks in the green, and that's why we daytime animals are most sensitive to green light, but the spectrum is such that the sun appears white.
dF = 0
d*F = J

And that's closer related to this possible phenomenon than the observable differences in visual perception. :)

Back on the thread topic - we experience many similar things differently, so why not colors?

- Music: I find jazz an emotionless jumble of "wrong notes played in the right places", while I love Dead Can Dance, Hawkwind, Tangerine Dream etc. Lots of people love jazz. We just perceive music differently.

- Pain: Some people enjoy it: most of us don't like to (to varying degrees)

- Synesthetes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synesthesia - These people can perceive music as colors, so their Qualia are leaking.

If all synesthetes hear musical notes as the same color etc, then we have some good proof that we DO expericne the same thing. My money is on us all being different however.

I think the problem with that video on color was the extreme example used.  I'm quite sure not everyone sees the same exact red, but using the extreme example of someone seeing green and just learning to call it red would have other issues.  Only way it would work is if that person had all their colors shifted the same, this would require all 3 types of cones in the retina to be shifted the same amount, biologically that would be a hard thing to do.  The chemicals in the cones are fairly well characterized, the variations would be in the levels of nerve impulses generated by the cone cells.  The other issue would be that if someone had a major shift like that, one end of the spectrum would always be messed up for them in artificial lighting situations, since we design lights to give us the best view in the spectral range the normal eye sees.

If you want a more realistic idea of the way different people might see the same color, go into the custom color picker in any paint type program, pick a color, and then change the R,G,B sliders random small amounts, a few percent change in each slider would be a realistic way to simulate the variations in the 3 cones between people.

On a more advanced program you could do the same thing for a picture, adjust the RGB ratios small amounts to see how different people might see the same picture but with different sensitivities to red, green, and blue.

I give up. This is how it almost always goes; people become fixated on the idea that individuals are seeing different colours, they're not.

But this is pointless.  :)

I almost never watch YouTube videos, but I thought it was important to share this clip at this time.

Reminds me of the infamous "Propaganda Village" that North Korea built right on the border of the DMZ. It was intended to give South Koreans the impression that North Korea was a really prosperous place. Modern satellite imagery however showed that the city was fake. They actually spent money to build a city that nobody lives in. And it's still there today.

I would love to know how accurate that translation is.  I really hope it's real.  I'd love to know more about the video.  It left me with more questions than answers.

Does this make the Korean people want to nuke us?  "Look how poor these idiots are....let's kill them!"

Is eating snow the biggest insult you can make to a person in Korea?

North Korea grows coffee?

There's no birds...wait there are birds?

Wait...I know....things are so bad in North Korea, that this video is actually trying to show American decadence, right?
