Guys, this is all so true, we all think of these questions from young to old. It's true isn't it, the fact that we could all be seeing colours thinking that each other sees those colours as exactly the same when we could each be seeing them as completely different from each other.
This could be one of the most important things which affects EVERYONE's moods and opinions in the entire world, because we get different reactions from different colours, so there will NEVER be a time when all human beings see 'eye-to-eye' so to speak (unless all humans were exactly the same - clones). This is probably what Hitler thought when he said he wanted everyone to have blond hair and blue eyes (even though the guy didn't have either of thost himself!).
Mind you, there's probably a good reason why we're all different in many ways other than JUST our eye colour, but I suppose, if our theory is true, then you probably see colours the same way people with the same eye colour do, as a natural sign of human communication to imply that you have an understanding with them and literally SEE things the way they do.
The problem is then, if this WAS found to be true (however they could), people could become 'eye-ist' (lol) or 'hair-ist' (LOL) which actually, many people already are (although they have no OFFICIAL evidence to back them up.).
The theory could prove that it is simply unfair for many people in the world because they may be unsuccessful in society and SEE things differently from 'successful' people. You can just imagine it now...Society making EXTREME changes in many years to come because of ideas like these.
Although, maybe it is not as far fetched as this. There is evidenceof this by the fact that many people seem to get very similar reactions and moods to the same thing(s). There are many examples, so many in fact that, er, I'm actually too tired to mention at the moment but feel free to make some examples, but many people seem to be able to tell the difference between light and dark so I guess we probably do see things not THAT differently from each other, maybe...
