Create a Realistic Ghost Apparition in a Mirror!
Just like a reflection we see in a mirror, we believe that everything we can see, taste, touch, smell, and feel is "real" in our physical world. However, it is our perspective that creates the illusion of our reality. Reflect the holograms you want by choosing to think and feel on purpose while using your imagination to create your own holographic reality. Create this two-way mirror with a scary apparition so anyone who stands in front of it will believe the hologram they are seeing is real ghost.
