The real question is

are you the object reflected or the reflection? Or both?

No. And by that I mean 'Yes.'

Also, keep in mind that your reflection isn't what you look like now, but rather what you looked like such a brief moment ago.

And we all spend 40 minutes each day living in the past:

Shhh...I'm aslo the mirror ;)

It's all just a series of eternal "NOWs". The past is a memory of a former now re-experienced NOW. The future is a thought of an eventual now experienced NOW.

BE PRESENT.

A mirror is no color, it just

A mirror is no color, it just reflects light. Since there is no such thing as a 100% efficient mirror, they are colored, and the color of the reflective material and possibly whatever it's behind (depending if it's coated on the back).

Damnit I cannot stand that trendy libtard fruitcake.

They are not. A perfect

They are not. A perfect mirror would have no color unless light is shined at it, and then it would be the color of that light. There is no such thing as a perfect mirror. A mirror is not arbitrarily green. Are you a bearded trendy hipster doofus as well?

Glass naturally has a green

Glass (non-tinted) naturally has a green hue because it contains small amounts of iron. It's just hard to see unless you look at the edge.
That's why the "mirror-tunnel" begins to appear green. In effect, the light, at the end of the tunnel, has traveled through several inches of glass, rather than the usual thin layer, making the green more visible.

So now you're just limiting

So now you're just limiting this to a certain type of mirror made with a certain type of glass. How genius. What about surface coated mirrors? How about gold mirrors? How about a mirrors that are made to reflect infrared or UV, and not visible light? What color are they? Typical glass is closer to blue than it is green.
