human perception

>i see blue on a paper
>you see red on a cardboard
>blue to me is red to you
>you see blue as i see red
>i see red as you see blue
>you see blue as i see black
>i see blue as you see purple
>you say purple and i hear it as YOU would hear red but i really hear blue
>its paper to me
>its cardboard to you
>you see cardboard as i see water
>i see paper as you see metal
>vice versa

another example
>i see a dog
>you see a dog
>you see a dog as i see a human (humans are dogs to you)
>i see dogs as you see humans, but i could see them as something different entirely

same situations go with feel, hear, smell, and touch, if you can relate

ALL IN ALL, everything is our senses, and no matter how different the individual senses are in reality, ALL IN ALL, when you compare them together, they are the same thing to each of us, only: seen/touched/felt/heard/smelled/etc different according to our HIGHLY differentiated sets of perception.

there was really no point in this but just an obversation that could use some good philosophers opinions.



i can see something, you see the same thing, what i see and what you see are entirely different things according to our own unique human perception, but compare them together (when both looking at it at the same time) they are the same thing, even though we can hear/feel/touch/smell/read it differently according to our perceptions.

The twin illusions of perception are chaos & order. Both are imposed by the mind, and neither fully describes the cascade of creation.

The Soul exists simultaneously throughout all of Time.
The Ego merely exists now.

When it comes down to the basic duality of human existance, all we can cognize is the "is" and "is not"  Every "is", is the same to all.  Simply due to the fact that it is not "is not", that is to say it exists.  We know red as "red" simply because we are told so.  Red did not say one day "I am red."  In our attempts to communicate our experience, we forget what it is that we are actually experiencing.  Our lives become so cluttered with thoughts and feeling, opinions, likes and dislikes, and all other attempts to explain what we are experiencing, that we forget what it feels like to hit a key, or to take a step, or what our toothbrush feels like in our hands as we brush our teeth. 



There are an infinite number of ways to interpret experience... The trick is not to fall for any of them
