In 2011, a team of physicists claimed that they were able to use mirrors to turn “virtual” photons into real photons. “According to theory, a mirror can absorb energy from virtual photons onto its surface and then re-emit that energy as real photons. The effect only works when the mirror is moving through a vacuum at nearly the speed of light — which is almost impossible for everyday mechanical devices.” Did you catch that? What these physicists are saying is that they were able to take a reflection and pull it from the mirror and into reality. Granted, it takes a vacuum, the speed of light, and boatload of cash, but the precedent is there. If a photon that only exists in a reflection can pop out of a mirror and into reality, could something larger? Makes you think twice about playing “Bloody Mary”, doesn’t it?
