Is there any way to take what''s on the screen and use it as a texture? For example every frame have it take a screenshot and us it like a texture on something? Also, how do mirrors and portals and things work in opengl?

If you want to do this sort of thing very often (like for the whole screen every frame, or several times per frame), you may want to find some way of getting the information before you put it on screen, since reading from video memory is agonizingly slow. Just a thought.
