A remarkable quality about the self-portrait in the spherical mirror is that
no matter where the mirror might have been placed in relation to the artist,
the eyes of the artist will always be in the dead center of the mirror.
Whether he had held the ball inches away or an arms length away, at eye level,
shoulder level or above his head, it would have made no difference.
There is really no escaping the phenomenon of always being at the dead
center of a spherical mirror when looking into it.
Just as there is no escaping the phenomenon of being at the center of a
spherical mirror for who ever is looking into it, so there is no escaping
the truth that every individual is at the center of Gods attention. Whether
you are upright or wretched, atheist or theist, small or great in the eyes
of others, you are, as an individual, at the center of Gods attention.
Someone from a long time ago once said, the nature of God is a circle whose
center is everywhere and circumference is nowhere. The saying describes how
God looks on the world and individuals in particular. He knows everything
about you, sees all you do, and knows your every undertaking. He knows all
this as if nothing else beside you ever existed, and all his infinite power
was directed toward you alone.
As men, we posses the limited ability to concentrate on a few objects at a
time. But God is infinite, and not limited by time or space. Therefore he
knows all things, at all times, and in a perfect way. There is no place
where you may hide from his sight. You cannot disappear into a crowd. No
darkness is thick enough to block out his vision, nor is there any
destination you can travel to escape his presence.
