1) Absence of comment does not constitute agreement or disagreement.

2) The term "qualitative color" is basically meaningless.  You can state a
definition, sure, but as a not-widely-used term it can be redefined in the
next post and quite probably no one would notice.

3) If you mean to ask about some phenomenon in the brain (such as what
exactly happens after red photons enter a person's eye, that generates
perception and memory), that's biology, not physics.  The fact that
physicists are not experts on the biology of the brain does not itself make
the workings of the brain a mystery beyond all human comprehension.
