Interesting post!

As a color blind person I often have wondered if others perceive things the same as I do.

I would say no, because perception is unique to the individual.
Perception is the interpretation of data.
When you read these words, you are receiving the same data as me.
That is to say, to you and I the words mean the same.
However what do you perceive from these words.
Are they helpful, antagonistic, truthful, etc.

Yet it is words we use to shape the world around us.

I was not suggesting that being colourblind was an abnormality.

My eyes, well they are just weird.

World we see is make-believe, top British scientist says

From: NewsCore
July 29, 2011 10:06PM



THE human brain creates its own version of reality, and the world we see around us is mostly make-believe, according to a top British scientist.

Professor Bruce Hood will explore the limits of the human mind in a series of prestigious lectures for the Royal Institution of Great Britain, the oldest independent research body in the world, it was announced yesterday.

The psychologist plans to induce false memories in audience members and use pickpockets to demonstrate how easily people are distracted, in a bid to prove how we have less control over our own decisions and perceptions than we like to imagine.

"A lot of the world is make-believe. We're only aware of a fraction of what's going on," Hood told The (London) Times. "We have this impression of an expansive panorama in front of our eyes, but all we are ever seeing is an area the size of our thumbs at an arm's distance. The rest is filled in, as the brain creates a stable environment."

He added, "Though you might think you're an individual and captain of your ship, a lot of processes are being controlled by those around you and your environment."

Hood will head the talks for the Royal Institution's Christmas Lectures, which were started in 1825 by Michael Faraday and have been held every year since then, except for a break during World War II.

"One thing I guarantee is that I will leave the audience wondering if they can ever trust their brain again," he said.
