There is no reality except the one contained within us. That is why so many people live such an ureal life. They take the images outside them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself. Hermann Hessee

What color is red? Is it the same color for everyone? Or is "RED" just a label you were taught in kindergarten to apply to your concept of red. I mean, what if everyone's red is really my green, but I'd been taught to call it red? How would anyone ever know? How can anyone ever talk about the human condition when we don't even know if we see the same colors?

"The sky is blue. I say it, you see it. But how can we really know if what is in my mind is also in yours?"

Badly paraphrased Caine...
