This post caused me to pause and consider;
“Why do we look in the mirror?”
It goes way beyond verifying our appearance. Our house, like many others has it fair share of these reflection apparatuses scattered about. Psychologically, the reflected images seen from the various angles in a mirror greatly expand the perspective of a geometric space. A painting or portrait remains within the image on the surface of its substrate no matter what angle you view it from. Mirrors offer diversity from every vantage point, thus expanding the experience. Our mind adjusts how it processes the reflection beaming through our optic nerves to align with whatever perception it has for the stimulant received. This gives us an altered sense of what we see whenever it’s our own image present in this reflection. Light is some crazy shit!
