Many have speculated that the plane in which we live is not the only plane in existence. Those who say this will usually then go on to ponder realms of mystery and wonder. The truth is, there is a second plane, but it is not filled with the euphoric images that most people conjure up. However, it is not filled with horrors, either, rather, it is a perfect emulation of our world. There is no difference at all. Whatever exists in our plane also exists on the Second Plane. Even you exist on the Second Plane. In fact, those “copies” of ourselves, those extra-dimensional clones, are bonded to us. Whatever action we take, they take, and vice versa. That means that, in the other plane, that other you is reading this right now.

In this Second Plane, there is only one difference. A God resides there, though some may call him a Devil, watching over the mirrors of those in Our Realm. This God has no mirror. He resides only in the Second Plane. Our “Copies” cannot see him, either, for unknown reasons. But he can see them. He knows what they are doing. Therefore, he knows what YOU are doing. There is only one way to escape this constant watching, but it could come at a terrible price.

Stand before a mirror. You see your reflection? That is your Copy. Look him straight in the eye, and will with all of your might that what you see before you is not YOU; rather, it is a perfect emulation of you. As soon as you have made this mental breakthrough, turn off the lights. Wait a while, about two minutes should do. Then, turn them back on. Your reflection will be gone. You have just severed the bond between you and your Copy. You can no longer see him, but he exists. Now, however, you will be free to do as you please, without your Copy mirroring it, and without the God knowing what you are doing. You could murder a thousand people, and walk without fear of retribution.

However, it is not recommended that you do this. As you sever the bond, the same decay that effected the bond will eat slowly up the remnants of one side of the “cord”. As it reaches whichever you was on that particular side, it will begin to eat away at its soul. Whichever version of you is effected will become sicklier, paler. It will stink of death, its movements will become stiff. As it nears the final stages of this illness, it will become merely a shadow of itself.

It becomes a ghost. Cursed to forever roam whatever existence it resides in, a shattered soul and lost cause. However, if it is not you that is affected by this illness, but your Copy, you will walk free. You will walk without judgment. You will be a God among men.

But be careful, for if that disease eats up your side of the cord, you will fall prey to its effects.

Trust me. I know.

    This is very interesting; I almost want to try it. I’m not going to, seeing as I’m a complete wimp [I can't even do the whole 'Bloody Mary' thing in the mirror], but I would have a fearless friend give it a go. I’ll do so later, perhaps.

    …so, wait a minute, if my Copy Self is reading this exact same thing, how do we know for sure which one is the Copy and which plane is the Second Plane?

    Obvious paradox is obvious.

    Not terrible, but it suffers a bit from trying too hard to be spooky mysterious. It would work better in a more clinical tense, e.g. notes from a thought experiment, or else take it the other way and gussy up the language so it sounds like a page of the Necronomicon.

    So… you realize that your mirror you is really a “mirror you” and not a reflection of light, and you’re doing this because you don’t want this god from this other world knowing what you’re doing even though it apparently can’t do jack shit to you… and the only reward you get is the mirror world not knowing what you do, but the rest of OUR world apparently still does and this not only makes you a god among men but it’s totally worth the risk of a slow, grinding death?

    YOU HAVE TO SEVER THE CORD
    It was OK, I guess, but the concept of being able to do anything without punishment kind of fails when doing the ritual causes you to die horribly anyway.
    Unless this IS the second plane :S

    Nehh. Traditional nasty mirror pasta. Never been a fan of mirror pasta, but I suppose this is decent as far as they go.

    I was really getting into it, until I read the part about the God in the other world…

    Wait, if we do that then couldnt they do the exact same thing to us? They could be wondering right now if they should try this out. In this case if the cord is broken on their side you could still kill a thousand people and not fear retibution.

    ITS ALL SO DAMN CONFUSING!!!
    someone answer that question i put somewhere in that rant please

    i was intrigued about the mirror god but then it seems to disappear from the narrative. does he cause the decay? is he some kind of judge? basically what i am trying to say is, then who was god?

    Moderately okay pasta except for the shitty and completely unnecessary last line. I wish there was more of a point other than that some random motherfucker in what may be the other place (if you aren’t in the copy world that is as from this you have no idea which one you’re part of) can’t see you anymore.

    GIR also puts it very well.

    For all the ontological pastas going around, this one isn’t bad. It struck me as odd, though, that a link between this and another reality, connecting elements of ALTERNATE DIMENSIONS, just snaps like a twig if you stare at a piece of glass and then flick the light switch.

    THEN WHO WAS SECOND PLANE?

    Dittoing Caedus – I’m pretty sure this one (or one insanely similar) has been posted here before.

    So what, human laws would somehow not apply either? If I murder one thousand people, this seems to guarantee I do not ever see Hell, but I’m still getting the death penalty when I am inevitably caught. The reward doesn’t justify the price, 50/50 chance of having your soul slowly coagulate, and even if you win, you just get to be a dick within the constraints of human law.
