Rather, it is an opaque mirror, reflecting what appears before it. Its clarity of image is maintained, enhanced, or distorted, by the devotions of its viewer. But like any imperfect surface, the reflection may not be what you expect.

[From the 4th, volume in the unknown and unwritten Oxford Noir series; The King and the Queen City]
