A MIRROR WITHOUT WORDS, without images, silent and empty, a mirror that sends only infinite echoes of itself back across the lines of its symmetry. This is the mirror of consciousness wiped clean of all the constant commentary and filmstrips of the mind. If you gaze into the filigree of this mirror, perhaps you will sense something of the infinite beyond, the empty space that it is reflecting. 


The mirror is also lotus-like in form, reminiscent of the 1,000-petalled lotus of the enlightened consciousness, in which all the countless sections of the brain are fully connected and brought into a harmonious balance.
