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.

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 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.
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."

On a spiritual level, however, I want to construct a room completely surfaced with mirrors... or at least that really reflective material.
