Had an interesting discussion with Mr Data today, concerning the perception of color - he wished to know how humans came to agreement on what red is, or blue, or green - or anything in between - especially since it seems to be an unspoken agreement - an interesting philosophical point, even for an anaemic android..My first question to him was "Well, does it actually matter?", to which he replied: "It might if you were playing chess with Death, or sitting at a traffic-light outside Hell, or buying underwear for a Klingon warrior...." Needless to say, I had to distract him at this point - I used the shiny pen, as always...but still..
I was frankly unable to give him a satisfactory response, so I turned first to Immanuel Kant's "On The Treatise of Being", but finding no answer there I moved on to The I-Ching, and thwarted once again, finally had to fall back on my old standby - my Magic 8-ball - which told me that "All signs point to it"...
Oh, the humanity!
This is nefarious, bordering on felonious - does this flit get paid for this drivel? Color me bored, I'm not kidding. This stuff just kills me, if you want to know the truth of it - I'm not kidding.
