If somebody would say that i have blue eyes, but would not give a mirror, i would believe all my life that i have blue eyes. The mirror is culture, education, self-awareness and cognition of others. When i look in this mirror i think: "How small i am". Without mirror i can go through life without realizing that i am small. Unless near will not appear someone really big. But also this big, without mirror will not realize, that he is big.
