America the beautiful
Good question. If we are talking aobut the physical act of seeing (the light and images being transferred, etc.) then how can two people NOT see the same thing? Example: two people looking at a rose. They're both going to see the stem, petals, thorns, and whatever else is on a flower.
And now on to the question of perception: will they perceive the same thing? Person A may be thinking, "Oh, what a beautiful flower!", because maybe Person A likes roses. On the other hand, Person B may be thinking about how ugly it is, as roses may have a bad connotation for them. (I don't know why-perhaps it's reminding them of a tragic event, like a funeral. Who knows?)
So they are physically seeing the same thing: a rose. But they perceive it two very different ways. And I don't know much about color-blindness, but they a color-blind person would most likely see a dull, gray blossom on a dull, gray stem.
Just my thoughts.
