    to reflect (transitive/intransitive)

    Good day everybody,

    let's have a look at the following sentence, please:

    Everything that happened still reflects now.

    I ask myself if the verb reflect can be used like that.
    As far as I have understood, the verb reflect can be used as a transitive verb wich needs an object
    = someting reflects something OR
    as a intransitive verb with the meaning of thinkind at depth about something (pondering):

    I am reflecting about the isse. I need to make a decison.

    What do the expert think?

    Thank you.

    Re: to reflect (transitive/intransitive)

    I agree with you. Perhaps the writer means "resonates" instead of "reflects"?
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
