Mirror Mirror in my hand who has a pure clean glass that can show reflection in two directions; first at me; second to my world set before me. It seems so simple but is so difficult to master! One way mirrors see life and people as tools to make them successful.

Interestingly, there is no such thing as a true one way mirror. This would actually violate the laws of physics for more on that see the Bonus Factoids below. Unlike normal mirrors though, the silver layer is so thin that it only actually reflects about half the light back.

Mirror-image confusions are common, especially in children and in some cases of neurological impairment. They can be a special impediment in activities such as reading and writing directional scripts, where mirror-image patterns such as b and d must be distinguished. Treating mirror images as equivalent, though, can also be adaptive in the natural world, which carries no systematic left-right bias and where the same object or event can appear in opposite viewpoints. Mirror-image equivalence and confusion are natural consequences of a bilaterally symmetrical brain.
