Ah, fantastic questions, sir.
I certainly think that brown has been with me since birth. I cannot remember a time when its many shades did not speak volumes to me. My teachers used to have meetings with my mum about how I would only colour with brown crayons. Ah, those were the days.
Brown most definitely transcends color. It is not experienced merely through sight, but through all the senses. It is a basic element of life.
I do not think time runs through brown. On the contrary, I believe that brown is time.
