I heard somewhere that if you stare to your own eyes in a mirror for a long time, you lose a lot of energy. The mirror eyes steal energy from you


This is a simple experiment...  let me try that..  and i will let you know..

Heh heh, if I was a superstitious sort.. I'd ask if you saw a color unlike any other color.. than I'd tell you all the mirror folk are coming! Umm, yesh, but I know... very wierd how that is... its alot like if you clench your eyelids shut long enough you start to see shapes.

i tried for about 5 mins.. Nothing happened.

I think its because your eyes start getting dried out from focusing for so long, and as your eyelids have to keep making them wet again it starts to get more and more blurry.

I tried that before, and I get freaked out by MY OWN eyes!
They just look scary...
Also, my eyes are strange..because everytime I try to focus on something, it turns double. So yeh, it might be my eyes playing tricks on me...

that's because your eyes aren't both looking at the same thing. So they send your brain two different pictures, which get overlapped.

Normally both eyes focus on one exact point, and they both send a picture that overlaps, and has a little extra on the edges.  

Like if you hold your finger up a foot from your eye it will double because you arent focusing at that depth, so your eyes see it in 2 different ways. then if you focus at your finger, the background will double.

One wierd thing to try is to go into a room where you can make it completely dark, have the light on and stare into a mirror for about 10 seconds, and then without looking away turn the light off for about 10 seconds, then flick the light on and off as fast as you can and everything around you will glow for a couple of seconds. yes.gif

I guess it doesn't work for everyone no.gif
Maybe it's like those stupid "mind's eye" 3d posters that were popular a few years ago. Some people saw it right away, others never did wink2.gif
