As long as we can agree that some light frequency everyone can see can be denoted a name, it cancels out the uncertainty.

Yes we do it's called Pantone

But we do have proof that some people see different colors

There is actually evidence that we don't all see colours the same.

Nothing else about any two people is the same, we don't hear, smell or taste things the same as others, so to expect seeing things differently is not a big leap.

I always wondered why people got yellow cars

Yes! That's why 50 shades of Grey was awesome

Thinking about it more… you're right!

We cannot even define what we mean by "seeing the same color".

I mean you can look at an object, then change ge the dilation of your eye look at the same object and it will be a different shade of the colour so very likely that most people you meet see different shades of the same colour that we see. That said we have proof that the average humans only see 3 colors(some see less none have been documented to see more) There are animals out there that see more though such as the mantis shrimp which sees 12 colours.

Yeah, all the ones I see have the letter u in it

With the same reasoning we have no proof that we don't see the same colors

@Dairyqueenemployee With the same reasoning we have no proof that we don't see the same colors

The colors we are are electrical signals that's being interpreted for us. Whether my red is blue for you or my green is your green too is kind of a weird question, we are all interpreting, save for certain malformaties, colors the same way. Grass is always green. The sky is always blue. Defects within the eye may change the perception, but the interpretation of those colors is uniform.

We can make the same argument about what things taste like. This is a question raised in the matrix to an extent. What bitter tastes like to me may not be the same for you. Your brain is interpreting a chemical signal and that signal is always "bitter."

In the matrix they ask, how would a machine know what (tasty wheat) tastes like? It cannot possibly mimic the brain's interpretation of those chemical signals, only transmit those signals and let our brains do the rest.

Cilantro taste like soap.

The electrical signals released of our biased interpretations of self and external are interesting as f*ck.

But seriously, cilantro tastes like soap.

We also have no proof that everyone sees different colors. But we do. No one can experience the same of anything.
