As a matter of curiosity, what color is this reply?  And would the phrasing make a difference?

I wouldn't say this reply has color, but if it helps the idea/term "synaesthesia" is a translucent gray.

I think that helps -- abstractions are colored/textured, but concrete things aren't (or have an inherent color/texture that's not overridden by your perceptions), yes?

This is straying fascinatingly from your original post.  I'm going to start a fresh thread for this topic.

Yes, that sounds about right.
