As Joey Jordison says::


I'm looking at you through the glass
Don't know how much time has passed
Oh God it feels like forever
But no one ever tells you
That forever feels like home
Sitting all alone inside your head

How do you feel? That is the question
But I forget you don't expect an easy answer
When something like a soul becomes initialized
And folded up like paper dolls and little notes
You can't expect a bit of hope

So while you're outside looking in
Describing what you see
Remember what you're staring at is me

'Cause I'm looking at you through the glass
Don't know how much time has passed
All I know is that it feels like forever
And no one ever tells you that forever feels like home
Sitting all alone inside your head

How much is real? So much to question
An epidemic of the mannequins
Contaminating everything
When thought came from the heart
It never did right from the start
Just listen to the noises
No more sad voices

Before you tell yourself
It's just a different scene
Remember it's just different from what you've seen

...

And it's the stars
The stars
That shine for you
And it's the stars
The stars
That lie to you

Primitive tribes tend to believe that mirrors and other reflective surfaces are displaying the souls of the people who are reflected.
I think this is probably the origin of the myth that vampires have no reflections.
The logic would go-
The mirror reflection is an image of the soul. Everybody says so.
But vampires have no souls. Everybody says so.
THEREFORE vampires can have no reflection.
Impeccable logic based on a couple of false premises.

I wrote a thread referring to mirrors once... one of the websites I was looking through at the time was this one:

Spirit and Ghost Reflections in Haunted Mirrors

I thought it was interesting, at any rate.



- Mirrors have the ability to suck out souls. To avoid this happening mirrors were removed from a room where an ill or dying person lay. The reason being, they were thought to be more vulnerable to the negative power of a mirror.

- People were warned never to look into a mirror at night or by candlelight. If you did, you would be certain to see ghosts, demons and portents of death - even your own!

- When a person died in a room the mirrors had to be covered or turned to face the wall. Failure to do so would result in the deceased person's soul being lost - or they may even turn into a vampire.

- Even while asleep, it was thought best to cover your mirror as you could be vulnerable to attack from negative spirits or demons during the dark hours. It was also advised, to never place your bed in a place where it is reflected in a mirror.

- In order to prevent mirrors being used as a portal by supernatural entities, the mirror should be frequently moved to different areas of the room.

- Mirrors with a solid backing placed in the same position for a long period of time, are thought to be more likely to become spiritual portals.

What isn't a scientific thing?

Theres an explanation for everything, and we have a lot of things figured out "scientifically"

Alice though the looking glass would be the most intriguing idea...

A mirrored world that's looking back at itself

It's what liberals avoid so as to not see exactly what they accuse others of being.

Every mirror shows the past. Reflection is fundamental to the matrix.
