its because mirrors are lined with silver
nothing to do with souls
when you are up close to the mirror you can see more of you than when you back away from the mirror. the reflection changes as you move away from the mirror
you can see a image on a mirror because energy bounce off
Because it was the reflection
An unbroken mirror, assuming it is plain and flat, reflects all the light that hits it back to you. If the mirror is broken, the pieces are bent and therefore you may be able to see parts of object but not in its entirety. The light that hits the mirror is reflected in different directions and is not directed into your eyes.
You can see vampires, but if you are standing in front of a mirror, you cant see them, because they have no reflection. They are only dead people's corpses animated. They just prey on others. They are kinda like spirits. They can't see themselves in their reflection; it confuses their minds. But, to make this easier, just like how ghosts are stereotyped to have no feet, vampires have no reflection. But that is not a stereotype.
Vampires don't need to shave.
cause your not looking at it , its on tv, it cant see you, the tv does not give off a reflection like a mirror
You see your reflection in a mirror
There are no such thing as vampires, so telling the difference is easy. If they exist, then they are not a vampire. If they exist, then they are human. Vampires are fictional, like elves, fairies, Santa Claus and trickle-down economics. [Alternate: Hold a mirror up in front of them. If you see their reflection in the mirror - and you will - they are not vampires.]
Some say that it is because they lack a soul. Others believe that they do have a reflection but can't bear to see what they have become.
Some vampires can.
A vampire is the creature that can not see their reflection because the theory is that to have a reflection you must also have a soul. Vampires do not have souls for they are dead and your soul leaves your body when you die. I therefore state Vampires will never see their reflection.
you see a reflection
Actually you can. This is one of the more incredulous claims for vampires that is difficult to conform to known physics. Some vampires are not comfortable with what they have become and shrink from seeing themselves in a mirror. Denial.
It may be possible if there is enough light in the room to see an outline of your reflection in the mirror. Or, your eyes may adjust to the dimness of the room and you may see a faint outline of your reflection in the mirror.
