Koka that wouldn't work. Red and Green would still be red and green, i would still answer correctly that doesn't mean that im seeing the same colours as you.
lets say you look at the grass, everyone agrees the grass is green however if you were able to look through my eyes the green I see (which to me is still green) to you might be pink. Similarly if I was to look though your eyes the colour i might see would be the colour I associate with pink which to you is green.
the names of colours are just words associated to a particular colour that you see though your eyes just because everyone calls green green doesnt mean we actually all see the same colour, though its very likely.
1 is red 2 is green.
Now you look though my eyes, 1 is the colour you associate to brown 2 is the colour you associate to pink, but there still red and green to me.

I always wondered that.
How do you know that my Red isnt your Green?
Its possible you think it's red but it's really green and you dont know it because you were told it was red when you were growing up.
I think people see different colors. How would anybody know, they cant look through your eye's.
Your mixing it up again. Blue is blue, no one is getting it wrong since blue isn't actually a colour its just a word, its a word associated with what we are told it looks like.

Perhaps red isn't red at all but blue and we are all wrong and blues is actually lilac etc etc. However, someone in the very far past decided that this is what the colours would be called. We may all be wrong.

If you were to get 100 people and were able to look through there eyes the sky may look a slightly different colour though there eyes, in one person it may look like the colour you associate with green, through another's eyes it may look like the colour you associate with brown however it is still blue, to the person who sees it as your brown to them is blue, and they wouldn't be wrong since that is what they have been taught to associate the colour (word) blue to the colour of the sky.
