A fundamental philosophical question, how do we know my blue isn't your yellow? The current human and "natural" understanding of color is fundamentally based on a misunderstanding, a misunderstanding which has been explored by the team at Vsauce in their YouTube video here.

Maybe one day our misconceptions about color will change, inventing and expressing something new, or through use of technology we could create a uniform and correct perception.

Could someone enlighten me on how this story relates to next nature? It is a nice story, but the connection to our research endeavors seems very remote.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
