According to one theory, in each large city there lives only one person, around whom circulate a vast number of mirrors. The mirrors move about in such a way that he may find them in front of him with larger or smaller time intervals, some of them have not yet appeared in his line of sight, while others might never get there at all. Most people think that all of that merely means there exist many people, and not just one person with mirrors. That said, there does exist some evidence which supports the first view: Regardless of how thin or thick, smooth or broken, or rugged the mixture of those mirrors’ glass is, it never happened that one would see as he was observing them so completely alien a sight that any possibility of that also being himself must be disqualified.
