When you see Red it is not the same thing as when I see it. Objectively you can measure the wavelengths of colours, but there is no exact point where red ends and orange, purple, Mauve, cyan, or pink begins, and people argue over where the dividing line ought to be. When we both identify red we are agreeing on a subjectively identified, but objectively decided set of values.
And in a very important sense these colours have absolutely NO scientific value at all.

So what? All this is irrelevant to sensory perception, and is only related to the language of colour.

EDIT: We do not need any words to be able to perceive colour, only to be able to talk about it.[/quote]

SO when you said that red is not a concept you misspoke.
