On a related note, how do I know my perception of colour is the same as yours?
My yellow could be your orange.

Color blind tests. They wouldn't work if each person had their own individual set up for colors.

Ill give an example:

if someone is born with a condition that makes him see green red and red green
he will say that his green is called red because that's what it is called
and his red is called green for the same reason

To update, the only other way to possibly see the color spectrum without messing up daily life is if someone sees the negative of the colors that are normal. Meaning there are only two ways to see the color spectrum that would result in being able to live within society normally.

I'm not very good at explaining stuff, but what i meant is that we can see them however we see them, but as long as we agree that (this color = this name), whatever the color is, we can live as if nothing is different

example:
we have one colored sheet and 3 persons
person1 sees green
person2 sees yellow
person3 sees purple

they agree to call it black

I know what you're saying. Please look here http://www.toledo-bend.com/colorblind/Ishihara.asp If this was a real thing (people seeing different colors but calling them the same) tests like this would not be dependable in detecting colorblindness.

Well, I'm not saying there was ever a coherent answer. I'm saying it's a question that really makes you think.
Biologically, of course, most of us (except the colorblind) should perceive colors the exact same way. But there's no telling how perception might vary subjectively, a great deal of the brain's workings are still a mystery.

This is kind of like how when you "see" yellow through a monitor, like your computer one, it's not actually yellow. Monitors show green, blue and red. It is actually impossible for the computer to "show" yellow. It mixes the red and green and our brain makes us see it as yellow. Look it up if you want, there is a lot of stuff about this and it's based on research. Or if you want, you can take a picture of yellow and keep zooming in. Eventually if you will see it's made of green and red lines.

Color is the same for every one, except color blind people. They eyes, or how they function rather, are created the same. This applies to taste buds however. Like how does my bacon taste to your bacon. But all in all it would still be the same taste.

What makes you so sure color is the same for everyone? If I called something blue, you'd call it blue as well, but If I saw what you were seeing I would say that it is red, and it IS red, but you do not call it red. There is no way of knowing. All of our minds could perceive color completely differently. food for thought.

A colour is not about how your mind percieves it, the way the colour feels is. Colour and vision in general about how the light is reflected through the eye; to say some people see red as blue is like saying that some people see a cup as being a plate. Red and blue will never be reversed for two people with healthy vision/ mentality.

Although there is a difference, it's minuscule. If anything, it would be more like, "This red looks angry." vs "This red looks frustrating."

That could be true. I honestly have barely a clue into how eyes work. I know the basic rods and cones stuff but I know absolutely nothing about color interpretation. You would think since most people's eyes are the same that we all take in light the same way though. As a counter-point to myself though, I suppose our brains could interpret these "light readings" in different ways. We will probably never know for sure.

I've often thought about this in regards to music: no one tells you what an instrument sounds like, you just hear it and assume it sounds the same to everyone. What if one person hears friday and hears her voice in a soothing, symphonic tone, and Beethoven is loud and unruly like metal?

Because the receptors in our eyes always respond to the same wavelength. Us two will always see the same yellow, since the cones in our eyes will always be stimulated by the same wavelengths that make up yellow. So, unless one of us if colourblind and our cones aren't behaving properly, your yellow will never be my orange.

I always thought... couldn't this be the same for tastes too? stuff that tastes similar will still taste similar, due to the taste being from the chemical make-up of the foods, so similarities are there, but how do we know that what i taste as beef isn't what you taste as strawberries?

It is very likely that no two people see color exactly the same, because no two people are exactly the same in any way at all. However, the difference in perception would only be a TINY shift, and it would only be directly left or right in the spectrum. It is absolutely not true that 2 different people would call red and blue the same thing.

How do we know that you and me, see the same colors the same way when you and me see? Is my red your blue? Or my green your green too? Could it be true we see differing hues? And if we do say how would we discover this fact? And even if we did would their be any impact? I'm not saying this would affect us personally, but I think their would be ripple effects throughout the interior design industry.

Different colours of light can be shown to have certain frequencies and it can be explained in terms of the way that you percieve colour through cones in your eyes that everyone must see the same colour as everyone else. Let the question bug you no more

Okay, but how do we know we all perceive the frequencies the same way? Or that our cones all work exactly alike with human bodies being so different yet essentially the same as each other?

I'm not sure, I'm not an expert in optometry or whatever category this fits into, but I'm fairly sure that mechanisms in our eyes can be shown to react exactly the same way to certain frequencies of light and so we all see the same colours as we process them exactly the same way as everyone else.

Ok, Let me give this a shot.
Let's start at the base. First, the rays from the sun comes down. Now our sun in particular is mostly white (not yellow), so we get pretty much get the full spectrum. Now let's take an example of this rose to my left. The rose absorbs ALL the colors in the spectrum except for the is relatively small section we know as red. Because of this we could not possibly see blue, purple, orange, or any other color. For further proof you may look at how we see them as "cool" or "warm" colors. Colors give off a certain color which can effect our mood and/or atmosphere. If we saw different colors, then the same color would provoke different moods, which as studies have shown, do not.
Happy now?

On a different note, relating to the comic, It is impossible to imagine a new color because there are none. if you go beyond the visible light spectrum, it is no longer considered sight, but a different sense entirely. Now, you may on the other hand imagine a different sense. Think of it this way, Our smell is a sense that detects the particles in the air to tell us of it's composure. Our taste does much the same thing but focuses on a solids structure. And as for hearing, (this is my favorite) what we know as sound is simply, (and yet magnificently) our body's way of sensing any and all vibrations in any form of matter. When you look at the fundamentals of what a sense really is, then you can be open to a new sense. a way to see X rays, not in our visible sense, but know it is there. Imagine Being blindfolded And hearing a sound, you know where it is. Now, imagine Having earplugs and seeing what made that sound. you still have a sense of the origin. Now finally, Imagine both of these things at the same time, and still knowing it's there without the other two senses.
Congratulations, you now have the knowledge of what your sixth sense is, much like the force in star wars. There are thousands of different things you could have a sense for. Open your mind.

although it isn't exactly a color at all.

How can you in any way sense an Xray without using technology? Btw nice to see some people understand why other people see the same colours as us, I hope more people learn it.

Well, we obviously can't sense an X-ray, it's theoretical.
Ok, let's look at a lifelike robot.
If it had a microphone, that would be the equivalent of our ears.
A camera would be the equivalent of our eyes,
An air filter could analyze both smell, a a small amount of what we know as taste.
And A a great many of pressure censers would be like touch.
But what if the machine had an X-ray machine on it?

Since we do not have the equivalent, we don't know what it would be like.
Try explaining to a person who was born deaf that our ears measure vibrations in the air and we call it sound. That deaf person has no concept of it initially because they have never experienced it. Through all the knowledge we have in books, it would still be slightly difficult to understand.
So without the sense, or something (books, studies) to explain what it feels like, We don't know how our brain would interpret such a sense.
It is a directional sense though, so one could hypothesize, that it would not vary greatly from sight. much like taste and smell are closely related.

That clear things up?

Yeah I see what you mean. Wouldn't it just be really a version of sight though, like how dogs have a more advanced sense of hearing so they can hear other frequencies. An xray detector would just be eyes that could detect higher frequencies of electromagnetic radiation, like xrays, so its not really a 6th sense, its just a better sense.

uhm, different living creatures (animals, humans) can see things differently... that's why the color blind people will not recognize some colors... they see it as a different a color. also even the not color blind people are seeing colors differently, in fact there are no two people who see a color the same (both see blue, but not the same way)... it is a proven fact that there are no colors, our brain and eyes make up them.

and... the "visible light spectrum" is what our own eyes can see, there are things our eyes can't see but some other animals can and for them it's colored. also there are many things that aren't in the visible light spectrum, yet we know what color it is.

you are wrong and i don't know where did you get what you just said...
