Perception

When I see the colour blue do you see blue too? If we looked at the sky we'd both agree that it was blue, but would the colour we perceive in our minds be the same colour? Could your perception of blue be my orange, or vice-versa? It's an interesting concept and a difficult one to definitively prove either way. Perception of what is 'real' is subjective to our perception. A beautiful paradox that Plato highlights so well.
