Back ward mask 002 – darkness and light

Speak this phrase into a recorder and then play it backward for the new message:

” STEE-all eth OOT neh zmuck thoorch eth ahb ZVIL erveh ooh “

Speaking of light: Invisible memory distorts visible light

Look in the mirror and see the reverse
left is right, while up stays above me.

Snap a picture of a moment in time
the image is flat and still 2-D.

Eyes see “truth,” though so unreliable.
Brain remembers scenes as pliable.

Noses bigger in the wide-angle lens
Angles of light distort by the tens.

Vision captures our memories in a net.
What you see is more than what we get.

Given a choice – camera or mirror –
we choose the glass because it’s dearer.

The world likes exactly how we seem now.
Our eyes seek reflection anyhow.
