Wrong. A mirror does not turn everything around, i.e., things on your right are still on your right, it reflects everything. If you hold a piece of paper with a word written on it up to a mirror, the mirror doesn’t reverse anything. If you can see through the paper, the word is reversed, and the mirror is showing this. The mirror isnt showing you anything reversed. People expect a mirror to show what someone looking at you would see, and it doesnt because it doesn’t reverse anythibg. If you write a word and turn the paper and show someone else, they see the word reversed from your view. However THEY are also reversed, their right is your left, so they see the word normally.
