I was just thinking, if me and you could see the world differently in left and right. Like living with a mirror in front of you, reflecting everything across the y axis. You can still perfectly function in this world. Like driving down the highway, the right side is actually somebody's left, but it would actually be considered right to them so it is their right, even though in their perspective to us it would be their left. It's a bit confusing. Like reading a book, we are taught to read from left to right. But consider this reversed. For the "reversed person" to us it would be like reading from right to left, but to a person with reversed y-axis vision, it would be the correct way to read. You can still perfectly function like anybody else in this world. I think it would be possible for many people to see the world differently. I just can't think of an example where somebody born like that could not function. I still don't know if I'm making myself clear because I am kind of confusing myself. A person with my brain would have my right being the actual right >. Say I switched brains with a person with a reverse perspective, so his right would be <, and if he pointed that way to us it would look like the correct way to point because to us he would be pointing the right way. Maybe I should elaborate more, I don't know. Still a bit confused.
