self-portrait in mirror (trash-can)
(full story here)
"The mirror on the wall
Won't talk to me at all
Now that I have everything
The face inside the frame
Just doesn't look the same
Now that I have everything
I wasn't always so fortunate
But I knew what I had to do to be well-to-do
And it had to do with the things
I had to do"
(lyrics from their first song on their first demo, now that i have everything at the tmbw)

Researchers would have to test how common mirror writing was in people with atypical language laterality.
"We'd need to know whether mirror writing is over-represented in that group."
Jackson said mirror writing may not have anything to do with language centres per se, but rather be linked to the way the motor system was being activated.
In synaesthesia, where the auditory cortex is connected to the visual part of the brain, you can't activate one without activating the other, he said. And the same kind of motor mix-up may be happening in mirror writers... (continue to article on mirror writing)
Look into the depths of the mirror as though you were looking into a bowl of water. At first it may appear gray than colors will come and go.
With time and practice you will be able to see sacred images like still photographs or moving film images. Spirits may sometimes look at the scryer, talk to the scryer or even touch the scryer. The visions may even exist outside the mirror and surround the scryer on all sides... mirror scrying
