Doppelgangers
« on: January 07, 2019, 07:15:40 AM »
Doppelganger: (n) An apparition or double of a living person.

I've recently become aware of pairs of look-alikes in my social sphere: people who strongly resemble each other in appearance and could pass for near-identical twins.

In each case, I have experienced each of the two in different geographical places in my life, such that neither member of the "pair" was aware of the other.

Examples:
Case #1: For years I belonged to a singing group with an older woman who was a friend of mine that I lost under tragic circumstances in 2016.  Simultaneously for many years, I have shopped at an Amish natural foods market in the opposite direction from home, and just recently was taken by surprise when I realized that one of the newer Amish employees of that store appears to be an exact physical double of the woman with whom I sang. 

The moment of internalization of this fact occurred when I was paying the Amish woman for a purchase.  I made an effort to conceal my spontaneous surprise upon recognition of the uncanny resemblance, but it must have registered in my face, because there was a look on her face at the same moment as if she had experienced an inexplicable deja vu when looking at me.

The two women have very different personas.  My singing friend was a highly educated atheist with a frequently sour disposition, though I was able to tolerate this and bring out her better side more than some folks.  On the other hand, the Amish woman has an eighth-grade education and a sweet temperament. 

Case #2:
Fifteen miles to the north in one of my social circles, I knew a 22 year-old young man from a troubled family who died in his prime three years ago.  Suddenly one day recently, as I was shopping at the Mennonite grocery store near home, I realized that the new stock boy was a doppelganger for the boy who had died.  More than just casual look-alikes, both boys were / are unusually tall in addition to the facial and postural resemblance.

I've long believed in the multiverse, containing multiple parallel existences in which we experience all that life can offer from differing vantage points.  However, am toying with the possibility now that the multiverse is either in the process of collapsing, or already has.  That might seem to fit hand-in-glove with the notion that duality is also collapsing at this time.

The death of one of the doppelgangers in each of those cases had followed an unhappy life for those individuals that passed.  The experience with recognition of these pairs is not just a visual phenomenon, but because the surviving double in each case is in an improved life situation and would appear to be a better version of him or herself, I'm left with the impression that something has been healed within this timeline. 

Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Very interesting, and yes.  Three such experiences come to mind.

Years ago, our family lived in CA when I was about 13-14, then we moved back to IN.  While in CA, one weekend day, probably Saturday, the family decided to go for a drive in the hills, and for some reason I stayed at home.    When they returned, they (mom, dad, sister) all exclaimed how while driving around up there, they saw a girl who looked exactly like me!  They were all so emphatic, and how I then wished I had gone!

Then fast forward some years to a point when I was a young adult, working in a medical lab.  During a lunch hour, a friend and I drove out to get food, and while out, the car broke down and tow truck was called.  The tow truck driver took one look at me and exclaimed, "you look just like my 16 year old daughter!".   

Then only a couple of years ago my friend Paula was interested in a man named Mel, but Mel had a "sort of girlfriend" already.  Paula and I decided to go to the nightclub where Mel was playing music.  Who was there but Mel's girlfriend, and OMG, they could have been identical twins.  Paula is a bit heavier, but the face structure was unbelievably identical.  I kept trying not to stare at the "other woman" but it was difficult not to.

Maybe more will surface....

Very interesting examples Ilinda!

Am guessing there may be other instances in both of our lives that we're not yet conscious of...

Have gone throughout my life without knowing anyone named Dana, but all the sudden there have been several key people enter my life, of differing ages, all named Dana:

The woman coordinating a home security project that we're working on.

A well contractor.

My sons' new guidance counselor at college.

Oh, and another contractor that we're working with is named Dane.

God / Universe does have a sense of humor!  :)

Fascinating and makes you wonder what is the significance of "Dane".

Kind of wondered when the phenomenon would begin.  Periodically, actually, rarely, I meet a person who makes me wonder about his/her origin, if you know what I mean.

A few years ago there was a new driver for the major package delivery company which brings most of our packages, and no matter how cold it was, even dead of winter!, the guy was wearing shorts and sunglasses, and he wasn't so overweight that he needed to wear fewer clothes. 

I began to wonder what his eyes looked like under those sunglasses.  In fact the sunglasses were very unusual, like a pair I had in college.  They were similar to those things worn by Geordi on STNG, where they wrapped way around from ear to ear.  Mine had a very narrow horizontal strip that allowed me to see, but nobody could see my eyes, and I thought they were so cool!  LOL

But DeliveryMan didn't seem to be wearing his sunglasses as a faddish thing.  Haven't seen him in a year or so, but still wonder....

Am guessing from your description that his presence felt like more of an anomaly to you than a threat?

I will say that in my experience, northern-born males often sail through the winter in shorts and T-shirts.  No matter how much warm winter gear I put in my sons' closets, they never wear it!  :)

VERY interesting report!!

Reminds me of another book that I read sometime ago, the writer of the book was interviewed by Linda Moultain Howe on C2C in a previous interview on there (she is a regular guest)..

Raechels Eyes: The Strange But True Case of a Human-Alien Hybrid

https://www.amazon.com/Raechels-Eyes-Strange-Human-Alien-Hybrid/dp/0926524607/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1549121555&sr=8-1&keywords=rachels+eyes


A fascinating true story in novel form, telling of the author's daughter's experience with her college roommate, who turns out to be a live-in alien hybrid under government protection. Amazing, but true. A real page-turner, together with actual hypnosis session transcripts backing up the factual claims.

After reading the book blurb posted by Max, I'm even more convinced the guy was strange to say the least, and to say the most, maybe he was in the same program as the college roommate described in Rachel's Eyes....

And no, I never felt threatened, but felt both then and now, that if this phenomenon is happening, maybe they are just trying to learn about humans.  It would be the best learning experience ever to mingle with them, rather than study their TV programmiing!  LOL

Interesting parallel to the boys at the farm where I buy raw milk in the winter.  The family has 1 of their own and have varying numbers of foster children, right now the number being seven or more.  I know this because they got a call from Family Services some months ago asking if they could take in seven children all at once, something they've never done before.

One day I was there and it was around 20 deg. outside and I noticed some of the boys outdoors engaged in something, when I asked if they weren't a little cold, and they said they weren't.  Their mom commented that they don't seem to mind at all and they rarely wear their coats!

From a couple of the Amazon reviews of the book which Max linked:

Quote
The aliens do seem to have a few blindspots that could be their undoing:
#1 based on the information in the book, the aliens seem to have a hard time grasping human emotion.
#2 there's the posibility that hubrids, if they develop individualism & normal human emotions, could rebel against their alien overlords.
#3 there's no evidence that these aliens are using A.I. (assuming that the aliens themselves are not A.I. entities but are legit organic lifeforms)

and

Quote
One impression I took from this book is that regardless of technological and neurological 'superiority', the hybrids/ hubrids ironically appear to experience major difficulty, a near impossible task, when it comes to understanding even part of the minutiae of everyday human activities and social interactions that we all take for granted. Hybrids and hubrids are obsessed with blending in 'down here'--yet their very upbringing and life experience couldn't possibly be more ill-suited, disadvantageous and dysfunctional for the integration with which they are tasked...
