Okay This was semi-inspired by Barry Rice (well the smell part anyway).
I find it very interested how all our senses are relitive and I will discuss sight because that is easiest. When we grew up you were told the color of my font was black the face of the smilies were yellow, etc. But how can this be true? (Not the black part). The colors can't be the same to everyone. I could say my favorite color was green and someone else could say orange. Now if both of us had perfect vison (20/20) why would we have different favorite colors? Would we not percieve the same color? How could we define beauty? How could we define things as "looking good" when clearly we see different things? How could two people look at the exact same plant and the saem time and one love it and the other hate it?
I don't think we all see the same thing. It's like smell. I smell cinnimon and dislike it yet someone smells it and really likes it. I wonder if this is why identical twins are usually similar or usually can tell what the other thinks. I wonder if they see the same thing while two random people in a room see different things. I would like to see a study that addressed this phenominon. I mean when I look at someone and think they look like scum and someone else thinks they are beautiful are we really seeing the same thing? OR are we jsut taught different perceptions of color and beauty. I think the later can be taught but can the enjoyment of a color be taught? There is a new bright sky blue car sitting in the driveway infront of the house right now. I think it is fantastic. Other people think it is okay or rather gauche. I'm really wondering if everyone sees the same thing.
