Its frustrating to think about how you can't actually prove that a color looks a certain way since everyone perceives colors differently, amirite?

Thats actually been disproven. Everyone sees colors the same way(except the colorblind) because the color we see is the one being shown in our retinas from the object. It's not like everyones eyes make up their own shades and colors for things.

light hits our retina certain wavelengths trigger certain chemicals to be excreted from our cones, these chemicals travel to our brain where they are interpreted by the brain. There is no way of knowing if each brain interprets light the same.

@1108635 (NoImNotHittingOnYou): People have different amounts of rods and cones, we just all know what color is green because we've always seen it as green. For example, we both know the apple is red, but your red may look like my green, and my red may look like your blue.

That's what most people think but it's not true. Okay look, if my green was your red then when you drew trees your leaves would be red, and someone else might draw them as orange, and so on. If what you're saying is true there really would be no 'color' of things there would just be the world and everyone would have their own colors for things. Like everyone can agree black is the darkest color and white is the purest right? Because everyones seeing them as what they are, no ones seeing my black as a red.

purple just looks like it should be named purple. this is my logic.

Congrats!

roy g biv, the colors all fade into eachother, stop signs are red and white because its one of the most noticable color combinations along with orange and white, a yellow mark is always hard to see on white paper

I think she's saying that there's no way to prove that the the color I call yellow looks the same as the color you call yellow. Maybe the color I call yellow is perceived by me to look the same as the color you perceive as green.

yeah but its not or else the roy g biv would be fucked up it wouldnt fade and if everyone is so different science would be out of luck

@dicky yeah but its not or else the roy g biv would be fucked up it wouldnt fade and if everyone is so different science...

But my yellow could be your yellow green and we'd never know the difference cuz we've been taught colors to look how they look according to our eyes. Slight changes can be there. If I ask you to describe how yellow looks, could you do it?

it doesnt matter colors are what we see from wave leangths bouncing off of it and back into our eyes and all our eyes are the same. maybe my yellow is still your yellow but slightly different but its deffinitly not your green because everyones eyes are pretty much the same. see comments below this one
