The superstition seems to arise from the belief that mirrors don’t just reflect your image; they hold bits of your soul. That belief led people in the old days of the American South to cover mirrors in a house when someone died, lest their soul be trapped inside.” What can Creator tell us about mirrors and the widespread belief in their hazards?

This as well is an example of a disinformation campaign to make people fear a technological innovation so amazing it was disconcerting at first to people to see an exact reflection of themselves as though it were a replica. But why would this mean something bad or dangerous when any time spent with a mirror and any comparison to natural phenomena, like seeing clouds reflected on the surface of a calm pond, knows that certain materials can reflect the image of something and it is simply light bouncing off seen by the eye? To develop a powerful superstition, that a mirror might somehow capture your soul, was started as a disinformation campaign by both dark spirits possessing people and extraterrestrial psychics manipulating people within their mind to make them fearful. Here again is another example of the interlopers wanting to spoil the party for you so you cannot even enjoy something simple, like a mirror that has many practical uses as well as entertainment value, by turning it into something sinister and potentially holding power over you. This is displaying the mean-spirited nature of the interlopers and not that human beings themselves will always conjure up darkness to distort things and create fear.
