@ Diotrephes

Had a long day yesterday. Sorry late getting to posts about the "voids."

The attached image is a 3-D (although hard to see the 3-D) mapping of the universe.

Anyone care to guess what appears to be two gaps represent?



Attach Image/Video?:

I think I know what it is, but to keep from ruining it, I'll post the md5 of my guess so it can be checked later:

Our senses, particularly

Our senses, particularly sight, is so limited in it's function that most people cannot even imagine that Microwaves, Radio waves, Infared, Ultraviolet and Gamma rays are all in fact forms of light. Yet this is all documented and is therefore not a mystery. Are you also going to discuss the difference between Redshift vs Blueshift? or what about other key topics of spectroscopy?

Cause if not... then what is the point of this post? It's mind blowing that our red is another creatures purple? C'mon dude I'm trying to throw you a bone here but your OP is a waste of time lol

To answer This:

For the sake of learning maybe,

You asked: "Let me ask you what are the colours around you?"

Then you asked: "if you see a red colour as a specific colour in your mind, does it mean that this colour in your mind is the same colour that called red in my mind?"

Now unless you have some kind of ocular disorder, the answer is YES. In relation to your first question, every object we can see with our naked eyes absorb and reflect the colors of the visible spectrum. (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet) They are presented in this particular order based on their intensity from highest to lowest.

For example: The ocean absorbs all of the colors on the red side of the spectrum and in turn, reflects the blue color that we see. If you do not see blue, then you might wanna see an optometrist.

It is estimated that people can see about a million different colors. The only way to be sure that people are actually seeing the same color is to have them pick it out of a selection of similar colors. For instance, just because you and I can see the color white it doesn't mean that we are seeing the same tint of white under the same conditions. The same is true for all colors.

it's great to see you again

it's great to see you again Diotrephes. You are correct in what you're saying. Keep in mind, I'm not talking about the shades that exist within the same range of colors. Rather I mean to speak on the way we recognize basic color in general.

I understand what you're saying but what I think the OP was getting at is we can see countless colors that we might call red abu at what point do they stop being red for everyone? For instance, while we can agree that blood red is red and even burgundy is red what about the palest pink? https://www.google.com/search?q=pink+color&client=firefox-b-1-ab&tbm=isc...

At some point we will disagree about what we should classify as "red".

SecularSonOfABiscuitEater's picture
Agreed. People don't always

Agreed. People don't always classify the same things in the same way.
