This topic was brought up in chat and I felt it would make for a good discussion.

First of all, mirrors have always intrigued me. It was always such a trip how a mirror is a reflection of yourself, yet it is not what other people see.... One reason being that the image is flipped, but many other reasons as well factor into the equation.

Whoa... I'm already gettin all amazed by this.

But yeah you know what I mean. First of all, the mirror flips your image, which is crazy when you are trying to cut your own hair, etc.

Moving on, have you ever tried looking into your own eyes? WOW! It is like looking within yourself and seeing the driver of the vehicle. omg this is such a cool topic.

Anyway, just wanted to bring this up for discussion because I know a lot of people think mirrors are interesting.

yes good topic


I have thought about this many times, I come to the thought of light & sight... we know there is a speed of light but I would like to know the speed of sight and is it really a speed, seems more like I am asking what the speed of comprehension is.

also without light there is no sight, with no sight/light a mirror is just glass.
so we have our sight our consciousness comprehending what we see, what we see is all light. and time is just as irrelevant as our reflection....

What would happen if you were inside a sphere, and the inside lining was all mirror. There was no lightbulb, but a magical light source (no physical thing emitting the light), so it was just you. Imagine how rad that would look. Every angle of the mirror would reflect a part of you, and the same angles would reflect the other angles reflecting you.

I think it would just collapse into an infinitesimal speck, because it would just be too insane.

Hahah love this post.

You think it'd be physically possible to construct though? And what if the light source were your clothing or something else attached to you in order to simplify things?

What really freaks me out is my right hand is the left hand of the person in the mirror... check it out.

Makes me wonder if it's not some other alternate reality that happens exactly like this one but the other me is exactly reversed.
