    Think of this situation.

    1) One half of a room is made of one-way mirrors.
    2) The other half is made of normal mirrors.
    3) Look through the one-way mirrors.
    4) There is no absense of light.

    What would you see?

    You'd see the reflection of your reflection? Lol.

    Inception style questions blow my mind away. I can't think of an answer.

    You'd either see the Matrix, God, or something akin to what the double rainbow guy saw.

    You would see a seemingly never ending chain of reflections. Funny that SamAsh says that, because the very same situation happens early on in Inception.
    Whoops, that's not a one way mirror.

    Okay, where are you in this situation?

    now that's tricky....

    but i think, since when you look from the outside, your eyesight hits the first mirror(the normal one), it reflects back to the one way mirror, which reflects back to the normal mirror again. so pretty much nothing, unless there's something in that room, it's just an endless reflection of the room.

    Likely light, probably of great splendor bouncing off of the two mirrors.

    you should assume that you are outside the room on the other part of the one-way mirror
    for example like the mirror the police uses when you are questioned ,
    and assume inside the room the only thing except the one-way mirror is one other mirror
    am i correct ?
    so what would you see ?

    What would you see? Probably the ceiling and the floor reflected in the mirror creating a "tunnel" that never ended.

    Note that a 1 way mirror is very different than a regular one, other than light, they don't reflect images like normal ones. As master said, their the things police use for questioning.

    We know what one-way-mirrors are. But the mirror on the inside would reflect the mirrored side of it. Derp.

    I think you would just see a reflection of mirrors.
    As you look from the darker outside into the mirrored room, you'd see the mirror across the room, and in that mirror the reflection of the one-way mirror you're looking through, which, from the inside of the room, looks like a normal mirror, thus creating the reflection of mirrors?
    That's what I think anyway.

    EDIT: Something like this happens in my bathroom everyday.

    What if it were to be like this? (Just out of curiosity)

    [normal mirror] ------lighted room------ [one way mirror] ------ darkened room------[normal mirror]

    You are in the darkened room, looking at the normal mirror.

    ok
    assuming the room is like a cube you will see endless squares and a vertical line of light (the source of light) ..........this depends on your eye sight
    assuming the room is a sphere with only a light you will see like a vertical snake of light as the light becomes smaller
    this is my last thought ,if this isnt the answer i give up [​IMG]
