We can, with some ease, determine if we agree if a particular color is or is not red, for example. Standards exist, and it's trivial to compare choices against standards.

Once that is achieved, and we agree that a bus is red, why do I give any further fucks what that means inside anyone else's head? Why would anyone be the least concerned with how red feels to someone else, so long as we agree on what red is?

The idea is to understand ourselves and the nature of 'reality. It's a philosophical conundrum. :scratch:
If you just want to be sure you get on the right bus you are wasting your time here even more than most of us.
