Well, I don’t know what they were thinking about the white or slightly off white carpeting. The place was like a very nice hotel. Absolutely nothing sacred about it. Pleasant, but sterile. No real character.
When the tour guide (who was an amiable twit) took us to a room with two large mirrors facing one another across the room (either the sealing room or the celestial room, I can’t remember which), he said the mirrors were to remind people about their coming eternity with God (i.e. the two facing mirrors show reflections within reflections within reflections, etc.). All I could think of was, “No looking in those mirrors would remind you of how YOU’RE going to be a god for eternity.”
I was in a room like that once on Santa Monica pier, they called it the “fun house”, it didn’t have white carpet though, just concrete floors.
Anyone who thinks that mirrors facing mirrors would give one a glimpse of godhood or of eternity, has obviously never set foot in a barber shop.
