Archive for Thursday 22nd May 2003 - The mysteries of identical twins


It must be wonderful to have a twin, especially when you are a child. Some twins are so close that they speak their own dialect before learning their parents’ language. Often they know at a distance what the other is thinking and doing. When one is hurt, the other feels the same pain, and there are many cases of twins having the same accident at the same time. This has been proved by experiments. One twin was given a sudden shock or surprise, and the other, miles away, reacted simultaneously.

The greatest mysteries are when identical twins are separated at birth, but continue to lead parallel lives, unknown to each other. London twins, Daphne and Barbara, born in 1939 and brought up by different foster-parents, did not meet till they were 39. Then they found they had both done the same things, marrying at 16 and each having a miscarriage, followed by two boys and a girl. Among many other coincidences, their mothers-in-law were both named Maud and were born on the same day.

Coincidences like that cannot be the result of genes or of telepathy. They seem to indicate the hand of destiny. If everyone at birth receives a personal life-pattern, twins are likely to share the same one. It leads them down the same path and makes the same things happen to them both. From this we learn how many details in our lives are pre-scripted. That must be why so many happy couples feel that their meeting was somehow ‘in their stars’.
