Mirrors Are Special

Most of us clearly take mirrors for granted and simply trust that when we look in a mirror, we will see yourselves as we actually exist. But what is actually happening to cause a reflection of something in a mirror? The stimulus for beginning to research mirrors closer came from watching a short video clip, so I thought I would try the experiment myself to see if it worked for me. The picture at the top of this article is of me holding a bottle of hand soap, pressed against a mirror, with a solid purple folder in between the bottle and the mirror. One might believe that if you put something solid between the bottle and the mirror as I did, you would not experience a reflection of the bottle in the mirror. But the reflection is there on the “other side” of the mirror, so to speak; as I moved around to the side to take a picture, there it was in the back of the mirror, as the only way I can describe it. I will circle back to my thoughts on this ghost image that doesn’t seem like it should be there.

I have been trying to wrap my head around how something could be seen in the mirror that is behind a solid object, so I decided to do some research on mirrors. The best and easiest definition of a mirror is the following, which I credit to a website: https://www.livescience.com/48110-reflection-refraction.html.

“When people look into a mirror, they see an image of themselves behind the glass. That image results from light rays encountering the shiny surface and bouncing back, or reflecting, providing a “mirror image.”” The thing that struck me the most is that a mirror reflects light back from the object in the presence of the mirror — does that mean that everything that exists is simply some type of light emitter? It would seem logical then to assume that if we are looking in a mirror, and see ourselves, then somehow, we are emitting an image of light rays towards the mirror in order to see what we look like. With the advent of quantum physics, there are clearly a lot of discussions that appear to support that everything that exists is simply energy arranged in particular patterns and that nothing solid actually exists. To me, that is mind-blowing and strongly supports more of a matrix or simulated universe type of reality. That is a lot to imagine and accept that we are bouncing the energy of who we are into a mirror to be able to see ourselves! But even if you look at…
