One Answer

  1. It seems to me that this is not the first time you have initiated a discussion on this topic? ))

    The link system is broken now, and I can't find some answers, although I can find questions where they were exactly located. I found, for example, a good conversation here:

    In a comment, you mention an inverted spectrum.

    A separate color, green instead of red and red instead of green, this situation is completely excluded in the first step of reflection. This cannot be the case, because there are no separate colors, there is just a spectrum. How would a person collect puzzles with a separate color replaced? Red smoothly turns into green, just like any color in any other. So only the inverted spectrum, not the inverted color.

    Inverted sperctr, in my superficial opinion (sorry, I'm in a hurry now, I think I'll return to the conversation later), is also impossible. Since the spectrum starts with white and ends with black. That is, we must assume that black is white for someone and vice versa.

    As we have already discussed, this is possible at the level of logical experiment, but not at the level of physiology. Black is the absence of a signal, white is the overload of receptors with a signal. People's receptors work in the same way, the brain is designed in the same way, there is no reason to reasonably assume that somewhere everything is the other way around.

    Regarding qualia, we also discussed that qualia is a good logical experiment, a way to open up questions, but in practice, a person learns to see (including colors), learns to feel.

    I think the concept of pain is more complex and interesting in this sense. The sensation of pain is not fundamentally different from the sensation of flowers. Just as color is “thought” by the brain, so pain is “thought” by the brain. How about inverting the pain?
