There’s speculation, which is kind of creepy, that mirrors are actually a parallel universe. You’re literally looking at yourself in another universe, and they’re doing the exact same thing as you, and think the exact same things as you.
You can’t actually prove that it’s true, and you can’t prove that it’s not true, because if it is you in another universe, your reflection in the mirror will think and do exactly what you’re doing. Even if you try to trick yourself in the mirror to do something different, the other will think the same thing, and do the same as you, because they are you.
No, there’s not. Silver is a reflective medium and it is simply photons being reflected back into your eyes.
You literally can’t prove anything but your mind is real.
Skepticism is a good philosophy, but up to a certain point it leaves us fucking nowhere.
Empiricists and scientists base every finding, every study, and every conclusion on the base fact that the senses we experience are accurate depictions of the world. This basest philosophical bullshit is literally the first thing taught anywhere, and it gets you NOWHERE.
"Wow, cogito ergo sum, the base of all philosophy, so edgy."
That statement had absolutely no value to anything whatsoever.
