It is interesting how people are more mirrors than light sources.

They reflect on the events than being the source of light itself.

The same person can change totally just by being in a different environment and under different situations.

Can they make up who they are or is it the environment that dictates what they are. (Can't use the word who in this case ... what makes more sense)

Be careful with these super reflective mirrors around you since they can show all things that the surrounding casts at them ... you can be happy with most of these mirrors in a static environment, but don't rely on them to react the same in other situations, just like the mirror on the wall of your room.

A light source on the other hand is always a light source, it even tries its best and is the same source under super bright environments.

Meaning beautifully turned into words in the "Reflection" track of "Tool":

"And in my darkest moment, fetal and weeping.
The moon tells me a secret. my confidant.
As full and bright as I am, this light is not my own
A million light reflections pass over me
Its source is bright and endless.
She resuscitates the hopeless
Without her we are lifeless satellites drifting."

Are we only lifeless satellites drifting in emptiness and reflecting a million lights coming from the source?

I guess we can be something else and let the Moon be like that ....

Very interesting and imaginative. A novel (to me) perspective to look at people.
