I'm not a very superstitious person on the aspects of mirrors and how they can bring you seven years of bad luck if you break one! But recently I have
been thinking about mirrors at a more radical scientific angle: Could mirrors actually be a gateway to another dimension?
When you see yourself into the mirror, you see an exact opposite reflection of yourself. When you stare into your rear mirror you can see cars and the
surroundings behind you.
What I'm trying to say that a mirror creates exact replication of things and surroundings in the imaginary perspective, meaning that although you can
see yourself in the mirror, you are staring at an imaginary reflection version of you which you cannot really influence since you cannot enter that
Think about it, whole objects and surroundings can be fitted in 3D in one thin glass mirror. You look behind the mirror, you see no reflection - you
place the mirror sideways in front of you and you see no reflection. But if you place the mirror at an angle to you with respect to the reflective
surface only then will you see a reflection.
Conventional optics in physics states that the angle of incidence (ray of light coming in) is always equal to the angle of reflection (ray of light
coming out). You can easily represent that in a diagram:
But if you shine any narrow beam of light in a dark room into a mirror, you will ofcourse see the ray is being reflected - but it would also seem the
ray goes STRAIGHT into the mirror and that the reflective image has its OWN light source! Heres an image - I modified the diagram a bit:
By the way when I mean light I'm talking about photons. Photons have NO mass, NO charge and travel at the speed of light. Again, Think about it - how
can something with NO mass even exist - infact how can we even see it! en.wikipedia.org...
So to conclude this thread I think that mirrors could actually be a medium to an "imaginary reflective parallel universe" - although I could be wrong!
Still, I have no clue on how to enter that dimension so would like your thoughts on this!
