In your own words? So who here has a word they can call their own?
Blue and red, firings of relevant cell arrays in LGN correspond closely with
people's reportage of how they perceive the whole spectrum of colors. ie. We
see these colours because our brains are made to see these colours. Human
beings, irrespective of culture, we make similiar reports on the colour
spectrum. The difference can now, even if still approximately, be discerned
by the way our brain differentiates the light spectrum.
Don't chase ghostly qualia, the neural firing is the percept.
