How would you describe our reflection in a plane mirror as an entity in the space-time continuum ?
- real space, real time /
- imaginary space, real time /
- real space, imaginary time /
- imaginary space, imaginary time ?
I think it is a kind of holographic projection, and cannot exert force, since it does not have mass. (rest-mass).
However it does have energy which is why photons from the image reach the eye of the observer.
Also, since the mirror is an encapsulated entity in space-time, all dependent entities are also are a part of space-time. viz. the reflection.
AFAIK an image is the work of photons. If I had the mass of the Earth I would have my own gravitational field.
An image does not have a gravitational field, it is a kind of "freeze-frame" for photons.
From the above, a mirror presents itself as an energy redirecting device.
It creates the illusion of mass, although there isn't any in reality. (something like an oasis in a desert).
Do you agree ?
