An Epiphany on Green

I believe Green is an amazing colour!
The colour Green is often used in the context of environment sustainability, however today while jogging in the park with many trees and plants after work, I have an epiphany on the colour Green!
It struck me that Green symbolises, epitomises, exemplifies 'balance': neither excess or deficit in any aspect of life. Why do I say that? If we can recall high school physics, teachers have taught us that rainbow or pure light is made of 7 different colours and in this sequence which I always remember: Red, Orange,Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet... can you see what is the middle colour? Yes it is Green!
Thus today after a jog, I have a redefinition of the colour 'Green'.. it means 'balance'. If you see this definiton in environment sustainability.. it does apply too for Greening is to strike a balance with man and with Mother Earth!
Red is too intense thus I do not like. I do not like the colour Violet too, somehow to me it is an evil colour.... I hope I do not anger those who loves this colour here.. just my own perception. Whenever I see the skies turn red or violet, to a certain extent, it seems that doomsday is here!
