    Here is a link to some interesting ideas. I couldn't find the original, but the paper by Marion is very interesting. Just disregard the comments in red:

    It's the idea that the experience of colour may vary between different individuals. For instance, you may see as 'red' something that I see as 'green', but because you use the word 'green' to refer to what I refer to as 'red', I have no way to know that we experience colour in different ways.

    In other words, just another nonsense from traditional philosophy.
