    Re: Perception

    When I was about six I noticed that things looked different out of one eye. Colours were muted in the right and more vivid in the left. My mother took me to an optometrist and they were astounded. It is very rare for anyone to notice such a thing let alone at such a young age (pat on my own back). Anyway, I had an astigmatism; one eye shaped like a football. So perception for me has always been of a double nature. Depends which eye I'm looking through.

    To convey the colour is the point. The technique used is irrelevant. The concept can be conveyed. What is the colour red? I can see it but please tell me what it is.
