You can create an existential crisis by starting at yourself in the mirror.  Nothing happens for awhile and then all of a sudden...  a sort of surreal and scary feeling, realizing in a more full way that you exist.  It's really strange.

Anyway, I haven't done that in awhile.  I'm not sure it's actually a good or spiritually safe thing to do.  Interesting, though.

How true.  I did this once when I was like 15 or 16, and since then I can't look at myself in a mirror for more than 2 or 3 seconds-- at least for eye contact.

Yeah.  It's almost beyond strange.

It's creepy.

You guys should find help. I can look myself in the mirror for hours.

With eye contact?

I don't believe you.  Vid or it didn't happen.

If I'm like shaving or combing my hair it's a little different because I'm not just sitting there, doing nothing, staring at myself.  I'm pretty sure that's what Walty is talking about, looking at a mirror for the purpose of just looking at yourself while doing nothing else.

Yeah.  I'm talking about not doing anything except for staring at yourself and thinking about your existence.
