Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have another you? Just imagine, being so overworked and a to-do list as long as your arm that you end up needing two of you? Ok so maybe I’m fanaticising here but this is how I see twins. I mean, I know twins are still two individuals and they have their own lives to lead but have you ever been in a situation where you need to be in two places at once? Of course you have but surely being able to have two of you is everyone’s dream?
But what if there is someone out there with the same facial features as you? What if without knowing there is a person out there that is you living a completely different life? Confusing but scary right? Well this exact scenario happened to two girls Ciara Murphy, Ireland and Cordelia Roberts, UK both studying in Germany. After the word got around the girls finally met and were from then on known as ‘the twins’ on campus. The only way you would be able to tell them apart is by there accents.
It’s been said that everyone has a doppelgänger on this earth they just hardly ever meet. As amazing and cool this would be do you really want another you on this planet? If it came down to having another me to help with the overload of work or to do the horrible tasks in life like shopping and filling up the car then I would definitely welcome it but for the rest of it, no thanks. I like knowing there’s only one me available.
But in reality over 90 per cent of us are born as twins whether it’s identical, fraternal, half-identical, mirror image twins, mixed chromosome twins, superfecundation or even superfetation. (For more information visit http://www.mindblowing-facts.org.)
So what’s it like being a twin? Is it as good as we all think? I spoke to Lois Forster to tell us what it’s like having another you…
”Being a twin is obviously all I know, but people’s reactions to twins are all you need to know about a person. Some people assume you’re exactly the same person with no individuality (people to avoid) whilst others are intrigued and love how close my sister and I are. It’s great to experience everyday life with your best friend beside you.”
