Dear Philosophers, What's it like to be another person? Milo (age 6)

That's a really good question. I guess the answer is, it feels normal. Because it feels normal to them, and so if you are that person, then feeling like they do feels normal to you.

But what we really want to know is, how would it feel for me to feel what they are feeling? If I could "see" what a red apple looked like to them, would it look red to me? Or would it look green? If I could feel their sleepiness, would it feel like mine? Fortunately, Milo, philosophers have thought long and hard about this question. Unfortunately, we haven't figured it out yet. What do you think?
