Full Idea

If colour can be modelled as a cone, with points mapped by hue, brightness and saturation, then a rotation could be isomorphic with the hues switched, so we may all experience different hues.

Gist of Idea

If colour fits a cone mapping hue, brightness and saturation, rotating the cone could give spectrum inversion
