The only inclination I get from staring at myself for too long in the mirror is this sudden urge to make out with myself. ;D To be honest though, I only use mirrors to put on make up, never really concentrated on myself, I'll try it later.

It is used for divination. But mirrors as a medium has ill repute.

It is called scrying. In fact, some (not me) believe you will see past lives you had lived.

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...

<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

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.

Overlapping images hey? Yeah well it is both sexy and scary at the same time...beautiful and hideous simultaneously!

Meh. I feel a strange sense of profane vanity whenever I stare at myself in the mirror so I wouldn't even bother doing this. Probably wouldn't have the patience anyway haha.

Makes sense since we try so hard to find ourselves but we never will completely... We are one big mystery aka illusion to ourselves, it would be a waste to seek concrete facts to an illusion that is basically groundless. To think we have found hard and fast grounds for who we are would be vain I agree!

I used to do this when the room was barley lit. It was awesome, I used to do an evil grin and stare and I would turn into a really sinister looking dude, my eyes weuld go all white and my face looked weird - BRB, going to try it again.

I did this for over a half hour straight once. Eventually your whole body disappears and images form in the mirror where it was. It reminds me of dreaming, except you're awake. I'll admit its freaky, but it is fun to do.

I'm only Sorry that i see this topic today, at 2013 and not when it was first upload at 2006.

I also hope that antigravity is still online to read.

Up till i read youר post, I thought I was the only one in the world that experienced this phenomenon.

Well, i read your post and then some of the other posts in the thread, and i don't think people here really understood.

I'm 49 and I first experiences that when I was 11.

I will do my best to describe what i felt.

I was a bored kid alone in the house and after staring at my own eyes in the mirror for about 10 minutes, I start getting this frightening cold dark feeling as I'm looking at someone else. Someone who wasn't me. like looking from the outside at myself who is not myself anymore.

Like drowning from my own existence to someone else without been able to come back.

The first time it happened i stopped immediately, but the feeling stayed and did not want to go away for an hour or so.

Since I was a normal curious kid, I was drawn to checked it again and again and each time was worst.

After a while i didn't need the mirror any more. By only think that way i could easily into to that same state and not be able to get out.

I decided then to stop with this and never think about it ever again, which was not easy.

Since then it only happened to me once or twice.

I only told this to 2 or 3 persons all my life since I thought It was craziness.

Few years ago a new neighbor come to leave near us. He was a Buddhist monk who do a lot of yoga and with years we become friends.

Not long ago, I described all of that to him and he wasn't a bit surprised. He actually told me that this is a sort of meditate stat in which we communicate with other entities, most likely: listen to that, our past life.

Who's the fairest of them all?

It won't be me because I'll crack the mirror if I stared at it too long.

It's a sign of vanity which any self- serving narcissist would enjoy doing.

I don't even get a shiver down my spine or any weird sensations.

Anybody would think you would get some out of body experience.

A actual staring contest with an other person on the other hand...

Yes, I still check up on this thread from time to time. I think you hit the nail on the head when you said it seemed like you were looking at someone else. I almost felt an invasion of privacy as if someone else was looking at me after a while. Very unsettling- but nice to see that so many of you have given this try and reported back your experiences

I stared at myself in the mirror for 20 minutes, but I had to stop because I didn't like what I saw. Everything seemed wrong somehow. The wardrobe door handle had moved, the lamp was on the wrong side of my bed, and if I scratched my right ear it looked like I was scratching my left! Weird.

Seriously though.... You see strange things when you stare, because your brain gets extremely bored and starts to invent things the eyes aren't seeing. This effect is allegedly used by mediums to their advantage, in the practice known as Scrying.

Staring at water, a mirror, or a crystal ball, all produce pretty much the same result.

Candle flames too.

Depending on your belief system, some believe you will see your past lives and others use it for divination.

I know people that have seen only bad things in the mirror. Frightening things.

When I look at myself in the mirror (I would never stare -- that would be rude), I see a laterally reversed image that my brain translates into me. Being that the image is really in my brain and not in the mirror, it is no wonder that the brain gets bored.

I did it. I looked pretty sometimes, old sometimes, my face would disappear for like a second or look disembodied and kind of float. But mostly it just moved slightly to the left or right as I switched my eyes. I kept waiting for some crazy thing to happen but it wasn't too bad..

I think I kind of looked like a queen :)

It happens because the human mind, and to a lesser extent the body, is not made to be still. We are built for motion. Now, with this trick, what happens is that, your mind becomes starved for stimulus. Since it's not getting it from external sources as much, it will do so internally... Normally this wouldn't be a problem, except that you are looking at your image. And guess what your mind will use as a canvas for it's "artwork"

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

* shrugs* <img src="style_emoticons/default/no.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":no:" border="0" alt="no.gif" />

My X-GirlFriend use to hate Mirrors at night too. I never really understood it, but she had a lot of strange quarks like wearing a bell on her ankle, and to this day she is still terrorfide of the forest at night..

Back on Topic.

I have done that mirror trick a couple of times growing up, and it was creepy every time, but I'll never forget the hell I seen when I stared into a mirror while F'ed up on LSD...

Never again dudes

Finally I found more people that experienced this!! Now that I don't need to explain, cause you now exactly what it feels, now I can tell even more about this. I did it with myself in the mirror, but for the last years I am doing with other people. I stare at other people (teachers, parents, family members, etc.) and I "desconstruct" their existence(?) too, their connection to me starts to feel weird to the point that the entire reality stops making sense right there.

It's incredible and scary at the same time, I wish I could find some scientific explanation for this!

I did this very thing when I was about 8 years Old in my bedroom. I had a picture on the wall of The Crying Boy (Not the Original just a print framed) in fact two pictures one above my bed and the other above my brothers.

I could see the boy in the reflection and when I stared at myself in the mirror for about 5 minutes not my face but the boy's face started to change like really evil it freaked me out. I ran to where my parents were and told them what happened so they removed both pictures.

I am now 38 and can remember this event very clearly, so it definitely made an impact on me. Later on in life I found out that the house we were living in was haunted by a man that died in horrific circumstances.
