Left and right are relative to your perception (whatever direction you happen to be looking.) They aren't set. North, East, South, and West are.

We cannot describe objects which lie towards one quarter which is turned towards the opposite. For example, if I take two coins one is stolen and one is mine, shuffle them together, and place them in different points (left and right). You cannot identify which is which unless you have been tracking them the whole time. But when it comes to hands, it is easily distinguishable due to the arrangement of fingers. We can state in language the difference between two hands for we can describe one as "right" and one as "left".

Behind the moss is south, to the left is east and to the right is west.

using east and west. that's like saying that to describe a person you need to use a thing, and to describe that thing, you need to use that person. it kind of goes in a circle.

Alright so this box has 4 sides. On each side is a different shape. The shaps are a triangle, a circle, a square and an X.
I tell the person that the circle is facing north, the x is facing south, the triangle is facting east and the square is facing west.
I tell him that when he is facing the box, the sides of the box are his left and right directions, eg when he is facing the box from the south, west is left east is right.
He should now know how to find his left and right and the north, east, west and south directions.
It's not a loop. How do you think we learnt our lefts and rights and directions?

Left and right are perspective based directions.

You can't just think up a colour though, they aren't made up. Every colour visible with human eyes is on the visible light spectrum

Colors are the box of 12.
there are only 12 colors in existence.
Red
Blue
Green
Yellow
Orange
Purple
Black
White
Gray
Brown
Silver
Gold(just accept these last two)

every other color is just a lighter or darker presentation of these colors. pink is red with a lot of white. all your fancy colors are just added whites or blacks to the color that can be simply explained as being one of these colors.

your cyan, maroon, magenta, fire truck red and macaroni and cheese are all these base colors.

When you see a yellow colour on your monitor, it isn't yellow. It is a mix of red and green.

There are two lines, a left line and a right line.

The first one you see is the one on the left, anything to that direction in relation to the center (in this case, empty space) is considered the left. The second line, is clearly NOT to the left of the empty space, it is therefore to the right.

You still can't explain which one is right and which one is left. You can only put a picture and say this one is this and this one is that, but that isn't explaining but presenting. And different people have different resolutions on their monitors, so you can't use the "closer to the center" thing. Wat do now?

Haha Saw the right first

I've been reading too much manga, reading right to left is as normal as left to right currently. So saw the right first, plus it is the one closer to the center of the screen on my laptop.

Water has no taste because it is constantly on the inside of your mouth and throat. Our bodies ignore constant stimulation.

It has a smell, we're just that conditioned to it since we smell it 24/7 that is does smell like nothing, or at least that's what I think it is.
