    I once asked the question, "What would a mirror look like if it didn't reflect light but emitted it." black you say? I think not. Would you would see right through it, so you would see whatever is behind it? I'm not sure. Someone plz enlighten me.

    Surely if you treat it as a "black body" the only colour you would see would be the colour of the emmision light.

    Why would you call it a mirror if it didn't reflect light?

    I am gazing right now at such a wondrous device. It is called a CRT monitor. It still has a trace of vestigial mirror-like properties; if I position my head corectly I see a reflected glare. Otherwise it emits light.
