Someone PLEASE help me with this thought!

Okay, this is a lil' random, and I would REALLY appreciate any input offered; please let me know if I'm wrong here, cause I feel really stupid, being unsure if I'm right or not... I've been trying to develop this thought on perception, and maybe more. To put it in the most basic form, please think about this, and tell me what you think, cause I think there's something obvious I'm missing. Here's the thought: If 10 "normal" people (or any amount of people) look at a picture of a basic color with no trick involved; all 10 would for instance say that the color is blue (or red, or green, or whatever). My thought is, if I was able to take my mind, and change bodies with another "normal" person; would I still see the color as being blue? Would I look at that picture with their "color palette" and see another color than what they saw? The reason I say that this would be possible is that we are all taught what the color "blue" is. Imagine it from the beginning; these 10 "normal" people are all shown the same exact piece of paper at the same exact time, and all 10 people are told to associate the label "blue", with what they see on this piece of paper! So, if I saw through your "color palette", I might look at that paper and say it's "red". Then we would just think that each other is bat-shit insane. Now, while that is all well and dandy; think about that with more than just colors. If I viewed the world through your eyes, with my thoughts, what would I see? Maybe for instance, your "up" is my "down", or your idea of a "person", is the same as my idea of a "postage stamp". Now, granted... that is indeed "bat-shit insane", but to what extent... I think I'm right about this, and while it just seems anecdotal
in this context; think about it in an expanded sense; take it further. The "world" may not be what you think!!! -Kamui-sama

Jeeze bubby, I don't know what to think about that, it kind of reminds me of that movie freaky friday, where they switched body's but not minds. I would think that if you had somebody elses body, it would be as if you are just wearing different skin. Because if you have your mind that was moulded in a certain way, then why would a change of "skin" change the way you see, taste, feel, smell, or hear? I believe that your mind controls who you are, yet then again you control your mind, with your mind, oh I don't know what I am getting on here. But in my opinion, I don't think the color blue would change in someone elses body, because you would still know, in your mind that that color was indeed blue, because that is infact what you have learned it to be. So to put it in a different way that might seem silly; lets say one day you wake up in someones body who is paralyzed... well I believe that if it was your mind and their body, you would be able to walk. I think that the mind is stronger than the body, so you would infact be the same, just in different "skin" <3 Does that opinion count? Love you bubby. Oh I am silly :p

Not what I meant... I can't explain it any better. I was not talking about switching bodies. And Freaky Friday? LOL. Like you said; that is a movie! I'm trying to talk about changing perceptions with another person (I think). I'm talking about how we are taught to label things. Oy vey, don't worry about it. Thanks for reading my bloggy though!! -Kamui-sama

LOL, umm.. before you misunderstand me; I was not trying to be rude. I'm not calling you stupid. I'm calling me stupid. I just don't know how to explain what I'm thinking. Besides, it was 4am. when I posted that, so I was a lil bit silly :P -Kamui-sama

i think that's right. I think everyone has a different view of the world. Noone looks at the same thing the same way. It's like everyone has their own lense to view the world through, and no two lenses the same. That's all i got, k bye.

Oh bubby I thought that was what I was getting at there, I don't know. Well anyways, I guess I am silly anyways.
