psychology of mirrors

Abingdon, VA

#1 Oct 7, 2012
Psychologists know that human beings are fascinated with images that facilitate visualization of body and mind. Indeed, this explains the social appeal of the Hollywood (USA) movie "Giant" (1956).

If society favors images and symbols of mirror images, perhaps there is a physical reality to the concept of mirrors.

Lewis Carroll wrote of the idea that the human mind is governed by a distinct perception of a bifurcation of reality between the perceived world and the so-called 'imagined world inside mirrors.'

Is what we see inside a mirror a mere reflection for imagination or an actual perception of another kind of physical reality? After all, isn't the image we see inside a mirror actually proof that the imagination has a tangible quality?

If the world inside mirrors illuminates the everyday appeal of poetically species perceptual Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Giant" (1956), then perhaps mirrors also reveal the anxiety quality of perception chaos Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Hellraiser" (1987).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
