If the light meets behind the mirror, without really meeting, how is it even supposed to be interpreted. If two light rays never meet because they are diverging but they meet behind the mirror-which it doesn't actually do, because it doesn't exist, what is happening?
Does wave theory provide a deeper and meaningful explanation for the phenomenon?
we can't even put a sensor where the light meets. And its on the "Other side" of the mirror. I can understand, for real images, if we put a sensor where the light meets, an image could be formed due to the photoelectric effect or the light being registered by some type of sensor. But how virtual?
