I've always thought of mirrors as an un-natural thing, its not an element that God made....

God didn't make reflections and the laws of optics?

Any still pond surface is a mirror. What's unnatural about that?

At my reflection I stared for a rather long while

I was lost in a trance at a face with no smile

Who was this man who did not even speak

Telling his story of an existence so bleak

He made me confused and I wanted to run

But how could I leave before he was done

So I held my breath and I stood even stiller

As I stared into these eyes of a killer

this is the same thing that happens with crystal balls, apparently if you stare at a specific object for a long time the mind gets bored and starts looking inside itself, thats why sometimes you see things in the mirror/crystal ball, they are images from within your mind, not somethig that is actually there, at least thats what ive read

I read years ago that the early-to-mid 20th Century American mystery novelist Mary Roberts Rinehart used to see her fictional plots enacted before her eyes by staring into a glass doorknob, before ever setting pen to paper.

I have resantly had nightmares about me being in a house and going up rounded stairs and seeing a jaged pieces of glass with a cloth on top of it. It was a musty piece of glass but also vivid in my dream, But this dream didnt feel like a drream, it was too real, like a memory, i look at the glass for a second that feels like a year, and see my reflection just looking back at me, then it smiles, and its a normal looking smile, but there's something wrong, and im still not completly shore what it is, but this smile was not a nice smile, it's a smile that says "I know something that you don't".

I cant quite remember the whole dream but i can never forget this part, and how i wake up screaming when i have it.

Well.. that was a rather.. interesting... experience..

I swear, it felt like my reflection was moving slightly more than I were (I can't stand completely still - not possible for me. :D)

And also, my eyes glanced sideways for a moment, but my reflection's eyes were still on me!

I am never looking at that mirror... again.

I've had this happen a couple of times. I def. agree that mirrors are creepy, I have a blue night light in mine and it just generally has a creepy vibe in there, old house, yada yada, ultimately I like it though so whatev. Getting back to the topic though. I have had a few experiences with this but when I was a young buck 17-18, all of them were under influence of hallucinogens too, so.

Note to self: don't try this, while alone at night, just having watched the 'Bloody Mary' episode of Supernatural.

Bad mix.

In need of alcohol.

Lol I used to stare at myself in the mirror alot when I was a teenager, because I thought it was interesting. After a while my eyes would unfocus just enough for my face to appear to be shifting into another person or my face would appear to age. I am glad to read I am not the only one who did this :D

I've tried it before. Really weird. I slept with the covers over my head that night.

:lol: same here. It was the most frightening sight looking at myself that long in the mirror.

I can find nothing wrong whatsoever with my reflection. I guess it's just because I'm perfect looking! :P

In all seriousness though, it probably has something to d with your mind getting tired or bored of looking at something for so long.

By the way, wouldn't you very likely get the same "melting" effect if you set up an experiment where you stared at somebody else in a mirror?

Nothing too weird, just a blur image of myself.

I'm too scared to try it out...

If I try it and see something weird, I don't think I will face the mirror again !

Well I did it just now. But my face didn't melt or anything like that. Instead I saw my aura :huh::w00t: ? Like a bright purplish color. Did this happen to anybody else??? :hmm:

I hate mirrors,especially in the dark; i have a bathroom right next to my room and it's a big mirror right in front of the sink and at night when i get up to walk downstairs and can't even look in the mirror; it's just something about looking into the mirror in the dark that's

I feel the same way! It's worse when you're half asleep

who needs a mirror?

I once stared at the floor in my science lab at school for around 5 minutes without blinking (it was a very boring lesson)

After a while, the floor looked like it had cracked in some places, and the cracked plates of floor were moving over each other, And it had changed color, and it looked like there were ants all over it.

Then I blinked, and it was a normal floor again. So I tried again and got the same effect. Was trippy.

I Can't Stand Mirrors They Freak Me But I Might Have To Try It

i was looking in the mirror 1 morning fixing my hair. Then i felt a warm air around me and my face started to change whilst i was standing there. Then i realised my face was no longer mines but instead was my granpas who had passed away when i was a kid. This made me feel a sense of happiness but was odd at the same time cause it had never happened before that day.

I looked in the mirror for a long time (about ten minutes, trying to get my hair just right) and i swore I seen something behind me, looked dark and shadow-like. And this was in daylight....

Mirrors are weird though...or so I think so. D:
