it's kinda like somebody who was born blind gonna describe colors to you. it's not that they aren't intelligent enough, it's just that they lack the experience from which to draw any conclusions that really count.
in a world of colorblind people, i'm certain those who see color would be considered insane.
and the attempt to make it stop, to not be such a freak, to pretend like you don't see the pretty colors that nobody else can see, that would turn anybody insane. for real.
and then someday science might prove to the colorblind world that color really does exist, and the oppressed and persecuted crazy color-seers were right all along...
or maybe they would rather find some special light therapy that would blind those who see color, and put them out of their misery.
anything to make it stop
