    on reflection

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me your considered opinion concerning the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    On reflection, your very existence is a mystery.

    on reflection = upon second thought

    Re: on reflection

    On reflection means after further consideration.

    On second thoughts is usually followed by a change of mind.
