Is it Blue?

This is something I have pondered quite often. How do we know what I call "blue" is the same as what you call "blue?" We look at the sky and say, "That is blue." There is no way to know what is in my brain is what is in your brain. So my blue may be your green. It's an interesting concept.

If you think about it the whole world is really just built on a series of agreed upon illusions. Take money for instance. We pass around pieces of paper, or even just impulses of energy over "the internet," that really have no meaning. They, in and of themselves, serve no purpose. You can not eat it or be sheltered by it. We all just agree to pretend it has meaning, thus creating currency. Life is all just one big game of make believe.
