Subj: Yes, that's why I would use the Purple Boundary as the "opposite" of Green

As I recall in rebirth and in Sinestro Corp war, it was stated that green is the center of the spectrum and considered by the guardians as the purest part of the spectrum, hence their use of it.

Green really doesn't have an opposite in that sense, though red/rage can overwhelm green as shown when a red ring latched onto Hal and his green ring went offline as a result, or when he felt a strong NEED to get the orange battery from Larfleeze and was overwhelmed as soon as he grabbed it. Larfleeze quickly took it back but for a moment Hal was being affected by the power as his green ring was blocked by the blue and Hal hadn't yet realized how to unleash the blue power.

yellow of course weakens green when facing yellow, but if a GL summons enough willpower/courage they can defeat yellow, red and presumably orange.

On color wheels, purple (magenta, red+violet ...) is the boundary of red & violet and it is often on the other side of the wheel compared to green.

The Reverend is right. It is only an illusion but I think that's why it is interesting : purple combines violet & red. What do you get when you combine extreme love & extreme rage ? Fanaticism.

In the context of the Emotional Spectrum, the Purple Boundary would be the color of Zealotry. In the DC Universe, zealotry is also characteristical of the Anti-Life Equation (= the power to subjugate free will).
So, I think that the Purple Boundary of the Emotional Spectrum would be an aspect of the Anti-Life Equation.
