At least I admit I'm a wuss! lol It's better than, "This doesn't work you're all nuts!" hehe. The reason I'm such a wuss about it is because of the things I'd imagine in the mirror as a kid, after reading this story of this pigbeast thing... :x

Hmm you say it has to be done at night, but what about a very dark room?

The best way I find is to stare into your right eye using your right eye.

It will actually be your left eye in the mirror if you were to be looking out.

Damn, I hope that made sense..

tribewilder, curb your addiction


Have you defo decided not to take the photo ???
If I had the gear, i'd love to do that.

I'm going to try what you suggest using the one eye---i've always used both so I'll do that later

Reporting:

Well, I have to first say that I was extremely surprised at the loss of time. I started a little after 4 am and it's 5:13 am now. I tried the staring into my right eye method.

I didn't get any drastic or surprising changes in my face, but my pupil got all googly looking, like the pupil would expand and contract like it was breathing, and it made strange shapes. At one point it looked like a slit, like a kitty or a lizard when you shine light in their eyes. My eyelid would elongate horizontally, which just looked funny lol, and the fold in my eyelid seemed to disappear a few times.

You know when you look into the sun for too long, and you go inside and everything looks magenta and green colored? Well my face kept going a bruised indigo and black color, and at one point my left eye looked like it had been punched. The most noticeable change was a brief instance of my face looking like a Cubist painting


I'm going to keep trying this for a while, should probably try a little earlier in the night when I have more time. This was fun

Weird as well that your face looked bruised, cos mine did on one side only.
All very trippy !!

Hey uk today


No, I swear I wasn't sitting there for an hour, it didn't feel like it at all. O_O But when I checked the time, I guess I had been. How long did you normally look?

Hey shapeshifter


I normally do it for about 10 mins !!!
It does your eyes in after a while-----If you need glasses, don't go blaming blondie here


DISCLAIMER---WARNING!!

This process can possibly be damaging to the vision, if done for excessive periods of time.

Phew--that feels better xx

Maybe I'll set a little timer, to stick to 10 minutes at a time.

Wow!! that was hair-raising.
I stared and stared and my face seemed to change into my
current employer's face (current until Friday!) and it was
harrowing.

Last night, I tried it at 11.30pm.
I had just settled down to watch the classic 'The Quiet Man'
with a nice glass of red wine and packet of digestive biscuits
(I love the combination!), when I felt that I should try your
experiment.

The things I saw roiling and squirming in there left me with a
cold sweat.
I saw an older man from my past, a man from a cinema that
I hoped I'd forgotten.
I saw my mother, when she was young and not worn down by time.
I saw my sister smiling as she did when she took me to the zoo
and we giggled at what the chimpanzees were doing.
And I saw myself with more masculine features, maybe a guy
who supports the Nix and drinks on Friday at Joes.

I believe I saw a timeline that flips and flops with true and possible
images of the past, present and the future.

But in the cold light of day, the mirror shows just me... just me.

Hey there

oooh--you've got a new outfit--very tribal


Mmmm---red wine n digestive bics sound yummy. I'm into ice-cream late at night.
Magnum white choc lollies x

Now, I think you're right here on the timeline thing.
The faces we see in the mirror are ourselves along the time loop.

our past lives and , although I had'nt considered this until you raised it, our future lives


I tried it again earlier and I vanished again !!!
It really trips me out when that happens.

I can understand the 'vanish' aspect, I've sort of slipped
away, it was only for a mili-second though.

I did glance at the mirror this morning as I passed by it
(I use the one in the lounge) and I shivered at the memories.
Thank you for allowing me to see these 'masks' I now know
that I am in control of my future and some of these faces may
never surface and fall to the bottom of my mind-pool.

You know, when I vanish, it makes me wonder if I'm really here at all ??



That even the everyday reflection I see of myself is unreal !!

Wow---this mirror thing really gets you thinking xx

The idea of reality is a enigmatic question.
The idea of all these small (tiny actually!) organisms collecting
together and forming a person, setting out a survival system,
and after a few thousand years, create an idea that the body
has a sole driver.

I mean, is the body a vessel that holds a soul or spirit-person?
or is all this merely fantasy to assist in us dealing with the idea
of death and finality?

We're on our own and the reality is only your reality.
Phew! I dunno where that came from!

That was very well put, except I believe that the soul surrounds the body.
Hence the "aura".

If I could, I'd give you a star for that post.
Very well written.

Thank you for your words, it's rare these days that I find
kind and sensitive folk... the world is a little tougher it seems.

The mirror shows us who really are, the mirror is merely a tool
to display ourselves to ourselves.
In a mirror, we look at ourselves differently than we look at others,
because we know the true person that lies within.

It may well be by focusing on one's face that the subconscious
reveals the facets that make up our identity... and there are many.
