Pondering the Unponderable.

If 2 mirrors are facing eachother, what's on them?

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

glass and air unless they're submerged. assuming there is space between them and it is not pitch black then you can add photons to the list... possibly fingerprints as well.

there doesn't seem to be enough information to properly answer the question... thus it is truly imponderable

Not exactly. Because size shrinks an object with perspective, the second mirror would show the first mirror and the area just around it (the first)

yeah i know. If you had like a pin hole size camera in the middle of a mirror then you would be able to see infinty mirrors. But if it had some really kick ass zoom, you would at some point be zooming in so mch to see the tiny tiny camera. I love looking into mirrors that are back to back. I want a room full of mirrors now.

You wouldn't need a tiny pin hole camera.

You could just walk into an interogation room and put a mirror of the same dimensions as the 1-way mirror facing the 1-way mirror. Go into the other room and look into the mirror. Painting the background of mirror 1 red and the background of mirror 2 blue should help. It should be a mirror with a red outline, then a mirror inside it with a blue outline, and each progressive outline it should get smaller and smaller,,,

i had a bad ass idea to make someone go insane for like ina movie:

when you go to a museum sometimes they have that huge granite sphere spinning on the rushing water, that's how this starts. throw a person into a sphere that is nothing but perfectly reflective mirrors (somehow there is light, i just don't know how) and start spinning the sphere, that would be some trippy shit




i also thought of a way to kill someone for like a bond movie or something of thw like: same sort of concept, but a regular room made entirely of mirrrors. placed around the room there would be like spikes that are reflective, so they would be almost invisible i guess. in theory the unlucky fellow would go insane, run around an impale himseld (or herself),

if they were reflective they woudl be able tos ee the spikes...they would need to be transparent.


TSH- Good idea. That would be cool.

You can never align them perfectly. So there will be a bend and you will lose the reflection. That and no mirror reflects all light, so it would get too dark after x reflections. If you set it up good and have a lot of light you will see a lot of reflections though.
