You're much wiser than I, Just like a sage And it always left me in Wonderstruck, How we can be on the same page. You have this power over me To desire change, bit by bit.

That is how the author was able to use the “monochrome” as primary label. Also, attached to the site’s name is the word “reaper” which pertains to collector or harvester. By coining the term ”themonochromereaper,” the author tries to elucidate that this site searches for the ultimate truth in every situation.
“In this world where it is either black or white, the truth is in between, you just have to dig deeper.”
