I realized today that the visuals of the Grid in the original TRON movie were just Flynn’s mind using familiar metaphors to make sense of the flow of purely digital information by translating it into sensory input he could interact with. He was a hacker, a gamer, and a rebel, so the concepts presented to him fit those ideas. Another person would experience it in their own idiom- if they could adapt at all.
