Colour Perception

This is freaky. It is one thing to understand that different languages divide up the colour spectrum in different ways - it is another to find that different cultures actually perceive colours differently.

Feel free to skip to 5:00 to see the Himba and their perception of colour.

If this is the case, it's not so hard to understand how, for example, the Piraha can see spirits that we can't.
