Isn't there another issue here? Red is seen not just when a certain wavelength hits the eye, but in response to a host of other factors, such as background. And the response is really a function of many color receptors being hit and then the visual system chewing on that (quickly), no?

(I'm not even getting into the qualia issue here -- just how the visual system responds to make normal people perceive redness (or smell jasmine or hear a melody, etc.).)

I didn't read the paper. Just responding to the discussion here.
