Are You Color Quality Blind?
Naturally, people use one abstract word like ‘red’ to represent anything to do with red information. If your language does this, it can’t represent different physical qualities that may be representing red information. If a language or theory doesn’t have the ability to distinguish between different physical representations of colored information, it is ‘quality blind’.
All of today's peer reviewed physics on color is color quality blind' in this way. The only thing people know about color qualities is the qualities things seem to be. A description of redness is not redness. Text, alone, cannot communicate what redness is like. Nobody can tell us which of all our descriptions of physical stuff is a description of subjective redness. Physicists simply haven’t yet connected (provided a physical dictionary for) our objective descriptions of stuff in the brain with the qualities of stuff we can subjectively directly apprehend as conscious knowledge.
