The mirror as an actuality:
A mirror is a reality, reflecting reality. The mirror itself can be appreciated for just being, a mirror. Everything about it just is. Yet it is an actuality that reflects discrete actualities in its surrounding. Its appearance depends on the appearance of what is in front of it. The image from the mirror emanates from whatever it confronts. It visually imitates what it faces, making it seem almost like a parallel universe. Yet it is still just a mirror.
Thoughts about the mirror:
The mirror is itself inanimate, but depending on the motions in its surroundings, it may appear to be animate inside. If there is motion surrounding it, it imitates motion. If it imitates motion, it may seem to have motion. After all, what is seen in the mirror is dependent on what the mirror faces. What is visible on the mirror will be identical to the reality it reflects: colour, motion, etc. However, it separates itself from the reality it reflects, as it cannot imitate emissions such as temperature, taste, sound, and smell. The corresponding image in the mirror is a limited replica of its own surrounding reality.
The mirror penetrates its external reality because of its ability to visually imitate. The mirror resembles its own immediate reality, while the separate reality actually influences the mirror. If this mirror was faced with another mirror, the copying/imitating would seem endless. Due to its likeness with its own external reality, the image in the mirror may seem to be a parallel life, but it is only, ultimately an illusion.
This year JULY has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens once every 823 years. This is called money bags. So reblog this and money will arrive within 4 days. Based on Chinese Feng Shui, the one who does not copy, will be without money. Figured I'd pass this on!!
