The ceiling is not the floor upside down...

I spent quite a bit of time this evening sitting on the floor looking into a full-length mirror that was on the floor, too. I was looking around the reflection of the ceiling.

I love doing this. I used to take a make-up mirror and hold it under my chin and walk around the house looking into the reflection. It was such a neat feeling of a little bit vertigo and a little bit lower-gravity.

Tonight, I spent a bunch of time trying to figure out why the reflection of the ceiling does not at all look like a floor to me. With the mirror flat on the ground, there would be no reason to think that it's not just another room down below this one. But, there's no way to be fooled.

This sorta relates to my other mirror post, but there, it was sunlight that gave it away. This mirror thing was after dark.

So, what's different about the floor and the ceilingCollapse )
