Cyberspace is the funhouse mirror of our own society.Bruce Sterling
She left the web, she left the loom, She made three paces through the room, She saw the water-lily bloom, She saw the helmet and the plume, She looked down to Camelot. Out flew the web and floated wide; The mirror cracked from side to side; 'The curse is come upon me', cried The Lady of Shalott.Tennyson
The world is a mirror into which we look, and see our own image.john lancaster spalding

We are beckoned to see the world through a one-way mirror, as if we are threatened and innocent and the rest of humanity is threatening, or wretched, or expendable.

But it was long ago and it was far away,Oh god, it seems so very far.And if life is just a highwayThen the soul is just a car.And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are.jim steinman

I wanted to rub the human face in its own vomit and force it to look in the mirror.j. g. ballard

Since the citation and the reference have different referents and are actually each other's mirror image, it does not seem very wise to blur the distinction between them. This distinction has moreover the advantage that the quest for a citation theory in scientometrics and the sociology of science splits into two different, analytically independent research problems: the patterns in the citing behaviour of scientists, social scientists and scholars in the humanities on the one hand, and the theoretical foundation of citation analysis on the other.
"I’m not going to be murdered," Harry said out loud. "That’s the spirit, dear," said his mirror sleepily.J. K. Rowling
