 IN OUR DAILY WORLD, HOW DO WE KNOW THINGS TO BE TRUE? HOW MANY TIMES DO WE RELY ON SOMEONE ELSE TO GIVE US FACTS ON THINGS WE DON’T KNOW? AND CAN WE ALWAYS BACK UP WHAT SOMEONE TELLS US?

One of the most interesting puzzles is trying to determine a particular color. For instance, how do we know that something is blue? We only believe it to be blue because that is what someone said it to be. Can we prove it to be blue?

Sure, we have a color that everyone assumes to be blue, but what if the first person who said it was blue was actually mistaken and it was actually yellow.  How would we know?

For thousands of years, a color we thought was blue was actually yellow. What about all the other colors, maybe they are wrong also. One person, at the beginning of time could have actually screwed up the whole thing and no one would know.

Now we are stuck with it, it is way too late to change it even if we wanted to. And if it was changed,  how would we know if we had it named correctly now? Ah, the mysteries of the universe, they are perplexing.
