Daily Discussion with BQB – Do We All See the Same Things?

Hey 3.5 readers.

BQB here.

Got a big ass mind-blowing question for you.

How sure are we that we all see the same exact things?

For example, what if the color I see as blue, you see as red?  Every time I see something I think is blue, you see it as red.  We never realize we see the color differently because technically, we’re talking about the same thing.

I see people that look like humans.  But what if what you think humans look like and what I think they look like are different?

What if people look like giant lizards to you, but they look like people to me?

What if actual lizards look like tiny people to you?

Sure, this all sounds ridiculous, and it is unlikely, but no one has ever been able to see through the eyes of another before, so how can we e so sure that we are all looking at the same thing?

Discuss.

    I have had this conversation with others many times, especially on color. When I was a little kid I used to wish I could switch bodies with someone to see what they feel like if we had the same bruise/scrape or when something made them laugh. Good topic. What if?

    • Right, and I mean, if what if I see humans, but when you see humans, you see unicorns, but you’ve always seen unicorns as humans and I’ve always seen humans as humans and so, we’re both talking about the same humans except we see them differently. I could talk about this all day.
