And this legend/belief or whatever it is, could have alot to do with the suggestion of *soulmates* as some say a Doppleganger can also be soul
embodied and can come to you through dreams/OBE and speak to you..
Usually this person/soul/whatever is the complete opposite of you and one legend states that if you 2 were to ever meet you would both die..
I've heard/read some very interesting things about this..just really never took it to seriously, as it's rather frightening as told by some..
There's alot of interesting books writen on this and alot of different views with could equate along the same lines..
Nice topic BW..
