What is Blue?

An interesting philosophical dilemma;

If I asked you, without using other colours, or your personal experiences, to describe the colour blue, what would you answer?

Imagine this; nobody sees the same colours – If what I see as blue, you see as red. How would we ever know? We all know that red is a romantic colour, it’s the colour of blood, of valentines day. But, if your entire life, you’ve been seeing blue where other people see red, you will never know the difference. But maybe it is the language we lack, for you cannot describe a colour without comparing it to another. Just an interesting thought!

Hope you have a great day! 🙂
