The mirror functions much like Galadriel's staring contest. [In reply to] Can't Post

In both cases, Frodo and Sam are tested -- Sam with his desire to return to the Shire and Rosie, and his fear that something bad is happening there, and Frodo with his fear of -- and perverse attraction to -- the Eye of Sauron. I would think the others would be tested as well, Boromir perhaps with the vision he describes to Frodo, leading armies with the aid of the Ring. We don't hear much about how the others were tested, though. Galadriel herself might see the very vision she shows the hobbits, of a Dark Queen.
