# Two eyes; one at the start / the other at the end

This is one I created:

Two eyes; one at the start,

the other at the end

each meeting a shimmering wall

yet when you look in one

you see through the other

I guess it's kinda obvious but it's cool anyway. So, what is the answer?

While there are many answers that could be suggested for this, the one which (to me) seems to fit the wording best is:

a periscope:

(Specifically one relying on internal mirrors rather than prisms...)

This has two 'eyes' (openings), one at each end, beyond which you find a mirror ('a shimmering wall'), and when you look through one end you see out of the other.

• Yes! Exactly! (And I did not think about prisms) Jan 20 at 14:01

a telescope?

• No shimmering wall, but good try! Jan 20 at 14:03

One wild guess:

The Illuminati

Two eyes; one at the start,
the other at the end


Two 'i's obviously.

each meeting a shimmering wall


Illuminati literally means illuminated. It could shimmer

yet when you look in one
you see through the other


Hmm... could mean these Illuminati all look alike.
