Do You See What I See?

I get odd thoughts.  Or at least I think they are odd.  One of them is colour. Barring colour blindness, if you see red, I see red.  If you see blue, I see blue etc.

But… Is what you call blue the same as what I see? Its hard to explain, but what I mean is do your eyes and brain see blue the same way I do?

Its just a name really, and we are conditioned to call something by that name, but that doesn’t mean we see it the same, we have just been taught to name it the same.

I guess we could go beyond color, and seeing.  You know what its like when your fingers get wet.  So do I? But is the sensation the same for both of us?

I think I’m giving myself a headache…
