Reflections

Imagine that all the while there was nothing but an infinite mirror. Of a complex shape, complex dimension. Something (say time) caused a part of that mirror to break into zillion pieces and colored each of these pieces differently.

Now, each piece would reflect the remainder of the mirror, but with a different color. Each piece would also reflect the other pieces.. In this reflection, it will also find itself reflecting them.

What is real, what is a reflection? Can it ever know?

Edit : A similar concept already exists in the Vedas (I wonder what doesn’t?!). It is called Indra’s Net

    Reminds me of ‘The ruler of the universe’ in the middle of nowhere, in ‘The Restaurant at the End of Universe’ 🙂
