Have you ever wondered what other people see? Even if you are both looking at the same thing? I’ve always wondered what it would be like to see things through someone else’s eyes.
Different people see the same things differently. I may look at a painting and notice the objects in the painting, but someone else might focus on the colors used in the painting. We might come to the same conclusion on whether or not we like the painting, but the way we get to that conclusion is probably very different.
Of course this is just how I think and feel, with no scientific proof of anything I say.
Or what if Person X and I are looking at the same object, and we both agree that the object is the same color, for this example, green. So we both think this object is green, but what if my perception of “green” is different than Person X’s perception of “green”? What if “green” to me was “pink” to Person X? Or if “green” to Person X was “pink” to me? But regardless of how we perceive the color, we both agree that it is indeed green.
I know that sounds crazy, because green is green, and pink is pink. The two colors are totally different, and easily recognizable, but if I could see through someone else’s eyes yet perceive things the way I normally do, would it be different?
I know we each think on a different level and have different levels of perception, but do we see things, like color, the same way?
