If I raise my right hand my mirror image raises his left hand.
If I wink my left eye he winks his right eye.

Why are top and bottom not reversed as well?

I debated as to whether I should write the answer yet, but that's what spoiler boxes are for, right?

So if you don't have a good answer to this question... don't read the spoiler!

Spoiler for Don't read this unless you already know what it says :)

Who says that up down didn't changes.. When you placed the mirror on your head and see through it then you see your upside down images as well as side also changes.......

I think up down changes... When you measure that your hands position changes then you think yourself in front of mirror which is your back side then you measures that changes.. When image is formed your left hand image is situate left side of yours and right side image is situated right side of yours. So for upside i.e image of face is formed upside of mirror and and image of leg is formed downside of mirror.........

I think it's more about the fact that we have two eyes in the same horizontal plane. If you put your head to one side, then the images change and you see things differently. Try it!
