When I was younger (early teens) I would sometimes be able to put my self in a type of trance by looking deeply in a mirror. Eventually I believed at the time I could see another person. Me but Me2.
Maybe in another dimension, I was huge sci-fi fan so not out of the realm of possibility at the time. It was weird. Eventually I could even see differences bewteen me and me2. For a time I "felt" like me2 was trying to communicate something very importent to me. I never did find out what it was. Have tried to do this recently and was unable to. I stared at my self but all I saw was my myself.

If you see yourself would it be very far fetched to say that you have a certain perception of your self and that is what you see in the person you are looking at therefore you project yourself onto him or her.
The mind is complex and it does play tricks on us.

Once in the early 70's, at Phil Seulings' New York Comic Art Convention, I had a strange experience. Throughout the four days of the convention, people kept coming up to me thinking that I was someone else. Quite often, they would just start into a conversation. It was as if they were talking to someone who looked just like me. When I told them that my name wasn't "Alex", they thought I was kidding around with them....
I've never had such an experience before or since.
