@Keith: Another oddity about mirrors is apparent if...

This is because we have two eyes separated horizontally -- also the way in which the brain's right hemisphere processes info from th eleft eye and vice versa -- if we had one eye located in the center of our forehead and the other on our chin and so forth, then the transposition effect woudl be in the vertical plane instead of the horizontal.

Another oddity about mirrors is apparent if you stand in front of them. Raise your left arm. The image in the mirror raises its right arm. So horizontally, mirrors transpose left and right. But nod your head, and the mirror nods back without transposing up and down.
