Meaning "double walker" a doppelganger is a shadow-self that accompanies every human. Only the owner of a doppelganger can see it, otherwise it is invisible to human eyes. Dogs and cats have been known to see doppelgangers. Providing sympathetic company, a doppelganger almost always stands behind a person, and they cast no reflection in a mirror. They are prepared to listen and give advice to humans, either implanting ideas in their heads, or a sort of osmosis. It is said to be bad luck if it is seen, and rarely a doppelganger will make itself visible to friends or family, often causing great confusion. Doppelgangers can be mischievous and malicious.
This term come from the German expression meaning "double walker," the human double, or the astral body. The doppelganger may be projected in an out of body experience (OBE), or appear as another person in an apparition. A.G.H.

Both of these definitions seem to point in the same direction many posts in this thread have been suggesting. The 'astral body', or 'astral plane' is thought to be the 4th dimension.
Also interesting is the part "It is said to be bad luck if it is seen"

That's nonsense. First of all, the astral body is you, and it's not someone or something else than you. The only way you can see it is when you are out of body, or partially out of body and look at your hands, feet and the rest of your body as if you're looking at your physical body. I saw my astral arms once, when I was partially out. What you can do though, is see your physical body while you are out of body. I've seen mine lying in the bed once.

A few notes, if this is true there is NO free will and everything we do is based on the laws of physics even in our heads.
