With the growth of the internet people are starting to see themselves online with different names, living in other cities, countries and sometimes just on the other side of town. We know DNA has a fondness for certain features and reuses them often, but meeting someone with your face is still a shock.
People are so convinced that they have met their twin that they run DNA tests to uncover secret siblings. So far science has found that nature is just reusing code and your parents have been faithful, so relax.
This still leaves us with remarkable doppelganger’s walking around with our faces, smiling and laughing in the same way we do. For some, this is too surreal and means that something bigger is going on.
Where this gets weird
People are starting to run into their twins. They go on trips or move to new towns and there they are, in the same place making the same plans.
Some people say this is a glitch in the Matrix, that we are living in a simulation that reuses objects, people, places, and events to keep the world generated.
Is it DNA, a glitch, infidelity, a mad scientist or something even higher?
Regardless of what is causing this, we have proof that it’s happening, so let’s explore what we don’t know and see where it leads us.
The DNA Test
