There have been a lot of horror movies recently with this theme -- evil beings coming out of mirrors. And there are of course long-held worldwide superstitions with mirrors.

I wish I could remember the name of that mathematician -- he was studying infinity, and had spent an awful lot of time sitting between two mirrors. He eventually went mad, stating that the seventh reflection in the infinity of hims represented was a monster.

Intriguing topic. Check this out.

Look into any mirror ... Do you see a ghost? Or does a real ghost see you? Invisible and watching you from the other side in it's backwards world. Many old mirrors thick and old and silver back stained are said to be haunted by the ghosts of those that died. their image forever frozen or trapped in the glass. Some recent stories on eBay tell of people selling their antique mirrors that were either bought or passed down the generations in their familes and said to be very haunted . It is said by some that if a ghost or lost soul wanders your home during the night, a mirror can capture it. An old New Orleans Voodoo way to capture a ghost was to put a large standing mirror in your bedroom door way. When the ghost thinking it is a door enters the mirror it is forever trapped in the rooms that were reflected in it when caught not the real rooms.

They go on to talk about the whole Bloody Mary thing. You know the one. Where you turn the lights out and say Bloody Mary thirteen times. It's crazy but interesting.

Not sure if this is relevant to the thread, but whenever I've entered an altered state of consciousness either through meditation or other means mirrors become a beacon of fear of sorts, and on occasion when I've looked into a mirror in this state, by accident might I add as I try to avoid them all together, I've become "stuck". Completely fixated on a simple piece of reflective material, sometimes this can last hours and I've never been able to explain it.

This is such a spooky thread!
Especially what DaisyAnne said. I googled to find the name of the mathematician but I got nothing. If anyone else knows, tell me!

I think mirrors are worse than closets for their potential to scare. I can't stand them. In my bathroom there are two big mirrors that are on the wall from each other at a 90 degree angle, so I can see one mirror reflected in the other, and I just get such a bad feeling from them like something is watching.

I don't know about mirrors being an opening to other dimensions but I do know that at night I don't like to walk past a mirror in the dark. I also have to shut the door that goes from the bathroom to my bedroom because the mirror in the bathroom faces the bed. I'm very particular about that door being shut when I'm in bed! Maybe it just left over childhood fears I still have???

Funny you mention the friends mirror, I've had odd feelings from old things like that before. Some good/comfortable some not so good. Never thought much of it but who knows? Guess that's another thread.

I usually don't watch 'scary movies' as they irritate me more than anything but I thought Constantine pretty good and the mirror scene was intense.

I tried googling it too, but couldn't find it!

My father is a mathematician, and he told me the story, so the next time I speak to him, I will ask him the name

As a kid/teen I used to have a dresser that you could do that with, enclosing yourself in the mirrors and I would sit and ponder infinity....some say I am mad. LOL No just funny.

I have a big mirror on top of my Dresser that faces the bed.

I dunno why you guys are so scared of them, girls like it.

Haunted dorm mirror! Tom writes, "My son Chris took this picture in his dorm bathroom. There is a large mirror in front of the sink and a side medicine cabinet mirror on the left side. When he went through the digital pictures this came up in the mirror. There are no weird things going on in the dorm. This is the first this has ever happened. where it was taken. Chris is at school in Ogden Utah, attending Weber State."

There is certainly something to it. I'm not sure what it is but I fear if I delve to deeply I'll be afraid to look in the mirror again. This whole thread has an eery and creepy feel about it. Has anyone had an incident with a mirror since this thread began. Because I am almost too fearful to share something with you as I believe telling the story will make it true.

I am not to sure about the effects of mirrors in 3D, but I know for a fact that on the OOBE state a mirror acts much like a whirlpool of energy trying its hardest to suck you into it.

Its all right people saying mirrors have nothing to do with the paranormal. The fact is though many people have stange occourances around mirrors and in many mystical texts and cultures mirrors are well used and known.

Everything in our reality is made of light yes?

Think about how a mirror interacts with light...

The Chinese use mirrors to dispel malicous intent and demons. In essence they purify or make the vibration of an area less dense because it forms very organised photon flow and thus the subtle energy forces are stronger.

Occultists use mirrors for scrying and seeing past lives. In legend you break a mirror you get seven (mystical number) years bad luck.

Hey Beezwax...I missed your post to me.
I was at partys at my friends house where the mirror hung and I know what sorts of characters where there. LOL

Constantine very creepy movie.

In Feng Shui they say you shouldn't have mirrors facing the bed.

Edited to add:
Remove or cover any mirrors in the bedroom during sleep.
A bedroom mirror that reflects the bed creates the most serious problems. A single person is less apt to attract a romantic partner -- in fact, the mirror doubles his or her solitude. A couple with a mirror reflecting the bed is more apt to attract a third person who may disrupt their relationship. People with depression -- and related stress and health issues -- also are affected by a mirror reflecting the bed because it disturbs sleep. In all these cases, cover the mirror at night … during waking hours it's fine to uncover your bedroom mirrors.

What the heck, I'm going to try it. I have a big dressing mirror that sits in the corner of my bedroom that I've been thinking of getting rid of just because I never use it anyway. I'll call it a scientific experiment and see if anything seems to change.

Oh, yeah Constantine had some moments. The actor that played the devil has a strange vibe about him and I thought that was great casting. He was one of the killers in Fargo (excellent movie imo) and those Volkswagen commercials he was in cracked me up. German engineeering yaaah-

You sure do have it all figured out, huh? Yeah right! You don't "know" anything for sure same as the rest of us. Stop talking as if you're an authority on the subject, because you are not! You don't know any more than the rest of us and if truth be told, after reading your comment, you probably know less.

Last night, after I replied here. I was in the bathroom just getting ready to go to bed. I was thinking about this thread as I was preparing to leave the bathroom. As I turned and walked away from the mirror, I saw something out of the corner of my eye. It wasn't anything I could describe but something caught my attention. I immediately thought it was crazy and I even smiled to myself, believing I had gotten caught up in thinking along those lines from this thread. I dismissed it and went to my bedroom. About a minute later I hear the dog growling outside my door. I opened the door to see my dog hunching down, looking into the dark bathroom and growling. I tried to calm her down and all that by patting her and asking her what the problem was. I gotta tell you, I was genuinely freaked out. I turned on the light and kept asking the dog what it was and even tried to get her to come in but she wouldn't. I chastised her and told her to go to bed. She didn't act up anymore, but it was certainly strange. Thought I would share that with you.

On a personal level, I don't like mirrors... I can't look at one at night, refuse to have one in the bedroom.

On a spiritual level, however, I want to construct a room completely surfaced with mirrors... or at least that really reflective material. The floor would have a circle (big enough to sit in) outlining some etchings with lit candles... the ceiling directly about the circle would have a pyramid to reflect the circle onto the four walls (the exact center of the pyramid would be blackened; you'll have the candles in the pyramids surfaces, but no mirror inside)... now picture the "endless tunnel" effect you get when you hold two mirrors to each other.

Just imagine the possibilities!

[edit... I never did answer the question: yes, mirrors are portals, to those who know]

is not this a double post?

anyhow I've seen stuff, in my Vancouver apt. I had a medicine cabinet that had two pill cabinets on the sides that opened to make a triangular reflectional certain angles. This apt had a knack for footsteps that sounded like cowboy boots in the hallway nonstop for hours at night and echoey 3D voices bouncing in the ear drums. I mind you had been sober for years and had an experience in front of me on the mirrors surface and it was propostrious to everyday reality. My reflection was appearing to move uncontrollably whilest I was remaining still and watching. I wasn't creeped out about it I was humbled. but I broke down a month or two later from the horrors I went through in that apartment. aside being an acoholic for a year or two I have some campfire expereinces for those who wish to know. there was other things but paranormal as they are they aren't mirror related.

for all you unbelievers, try this and you will become a believer. im serious.
if you do not try this or do exactly as i say, you will not see him. you must do this. ok, for full effect, you must do this at night past 12:00 am. you can do this yourself or with another. if you are with another, you must be back to back. get two mirrors about 3 feet in width and 3 feet in hieght. place them faceing one another and place them 6 feet apart. place a lit candle on the right side of each mirror and open a window. do not try in winter and always keep at least one candle lit.
you or your partner are to stare in the mirror focussing on your face only. make sure your legs are crossed. now while starring into the mirror at your face only, you will notice things inside the mirror start to move. do not be alarmed, just stare at your face only. after about 12 minutes or less he will come. you will see him run inside the mirror. when this happens, things start to happen and you will be a believer.
