Are mirrors portals to another dimension?

Your explanation might be the more accurate way to interpret something I saw once. I've been searching around the threads for a while trying to find a appropriate place to post this. What I'm looking for is most likely explanation.

I have a mirror in my bedroom that I look into often to watch the television screen more comfortably from the opposite direction. It is about 90 years old at this point. Sometime earlier this year, before it got warm, I was doing is while lying in bed rather upset, but not for any good reason. Just a bad day, and I was sober, before anyone asks about that. My boyfriend, who lives with me, was talking to me and I was feeling rather alienated by him, and he was a little upset also. He was standing so that his reflection was in the mirror so I was addressing that.
I was looking directly at that when I saw him move into my actual frame of vision. In the mirror, where I kept my eyes, his reflection stood still by the television. It remained still while I told him what I saw. He wasn't in the mood, brushed it off as emotional nonsense, and walked out of the room. The reflection faded very slowly into just a shadow, back into an accurate reflection.

Scared me, my first thought was "doppelganger?!" but my panic faded as I continued to look at it, I became a little fascinated. Now I wonder what I was observing, my superstition is slight and I have never personally or impersonally known of any indication why it should be otherwise, though the idea is interesting.

Is there anything I need to be aware of? This question is one of the things I came here specifically to ask about.

It's weird that you bring this up. I watched the Unborn a few days ago. In it, an old woman says that mirrors are portals. She instructs the main character to break every mirror she has and burn the pieces. Good movie, odd coincidence.

Nothing odd or coincidental about it really.whenever we look ourself in the eye it breaks ours self image we have of ourselfs and it feels as if we look a stranger in the eye.I am not talking about casually looking in a mirror but intently looking ourselves in the eyes.Basicly it is the reason why mirrors are featured in horror movies as often as you already pointed out just.

So nothing odd or coincidental about that.

Also mirrors break if you try to pass through them becuase there is no portal hidden in them and the shards left after breaking have no effect on your life afterwards unless you manage get cut by them.

So I had this dream. In it I was visited by a powerful being. The being put me in a state where I could not talk or move but I had full use of my mind. I was in between consciousness and sleep. I started to freak out because I knew someone was doing this to me. I struggled so hard to speak and I was able to mumble enough words that my wife heard me and I broke free. It was literally the scariest thing I had ever been through. After that I was up for a while but finally got tired enough to go back to sleep. When I did the same being visited me again. This time a lot less scary. The being told me that I could ask one question. I don’t know why I asked this but I asked is the universe really infinite. The response is one I’ll never forget.

The being responded and said, the universe is, or is not infinite, the way two mirrors facing each other will or will not reflect their reflection for infinity.

I happen to like mirrors. I think every room in my house has a mirror. I don’t see or feel anything weird or spooky about them.

It really won’t be infinite. Sooner or later, the photons will not fit and stop reflecting.

Very interesting thread, really enjoying this one. I used to read a lot of Stuart Wilde's stuff but the account mentioned earlier was new to me. Is anyone able to elaborate?

Also, just found this - not at all creepy but pretty cool.

“!dlrowrorriM eht ot emocleW” ~ The first thing people hear when entering the Mirror Universe.

I guess i'm slightly superstitious, i face mirrors backwards when not in use, and don't use them around my house.

On a serious note,
Some of my biggest jump scares in life, screams and all, have involved mirrors at night, and not just in bathrooms.
They don't really freak me out, but seeing my own reflection at night for whatever reason just startles the living daylights out of me. Maybe I'm just that scary looking.

For a kids show this was really spooky.

Awesome thread, thanks for sharing and those "dead relatives" you refer to are demons.

Great thread that I hope continues. Mirrors don't really scare me, day or night, but then again, I don't like to look at my reflection in one for anything but a moment - makes me feel uncomfortable.
What I really don't like is standing in front of a window when the lift is on in the room you are in and it is dark outside, makes me feel exposed and very uncomfortable. Not exactly the same thing, I know.

It called scrying 😁

You can do same as crystal balls work

Mirrors are creepy because they reverse images in the horizontal plane, but not in the vertical plane.

No matter what you do, you cannot get them to reverse the reflection in the vertical plane. Even if you turn your head sideways.

Why do you suppose that is?

And no--it has nothing to do with stereoscopic (two eyes) vision. Close one eye and try it: it still works.

Creepy, innit?
