Another possibility Brent: there are people here who read about qualia and go immediately to a related question that the qualia discussions spawn (in my mind): is consciousness and perception substrate dependent?


If different people perceive red differently, clearly perception is a function of how the brain is constructed, which differs between people (and beasts.)


When I recognize differences in perception of a concept such as red, it causes me concern that perception is substrate dependent (dang, I hope not.)
