Mirrors are often revered in magical workings for their capability of opening portals into other dimensions, the spirit world, and realms beyond our understanding. While it may seem like a tale out of dark folklore, and the substance of spooky campfire stories, there is historical and quantum context to the claims.
Often referred to as the Hat Man, Shadow Figure, or Humanoid Black Mass, a Shadow Person is typically described as a very tall, solid black figure, that is typically in the form of a humanoid type of entity. The do not have a face, although sometimes arms and fingers are noticeable. They are seen arching in contorted stances but are not especially animated. They linger, and hover higher than a person would stand, often in the corner of a room, or at the end of a hallway. Some people describe them being eight feet or taller in height, and sometimes appear as tall as the ceiling of a room. Their size grows over time. Their lower body tends to morph into a solid black mass that blends in with, and bleeds into, the space they are occupying. So it’s mostly the torso and head that appear in human like form.
