Twins. Seriously. What da arf. What a strange occurance yeah?
Just in case you don't know what I am talking about, I am talking about identical human twins in particular. Do you find it as fascinating as me?
It is probably because I happen to know a pair of identical twins very well, and it is super strange and intriguing. They look exactly alike.
This pair of twins have shared some of their stories with me, and I want to share them with you. They talked about how when they were young, they would play a game called "mirror," where they would imitate each other. They would also stare into each other's eyes. How trippy is that!!??
My favorite aspect about twins that they shared with me is how they have a super intense bond with each other. Let me give a couple examples.
If one has a headache on her right side, the other will have a headache on her left side.
If one has a sore tummy, the other will have a sore tummy.
The most recent one was one hurt her back on her left side, and the other hurt her ribs on her right side.
I find it to be such an awesome thing that they share an almost psychic bond with each other.
So now, as usual with my threads, I crave your input on the topic at hand.
Thank you in advance!!!
VISITORS to Anstruther Primary School could be forgiven for thinking they're seeing double...
That's because the school is currently home to 12 sets of twins! Teachers say they were stunned to have 11 sets on their books as the new term started recently but then couldn't believe it when they were told that a couple of new additions were arriving a bit later and, guess what, they were twins as well.
The youngsters are spread throughout the school's nursery and range up through the primaries right up to primary seven.
Read the full story in this week's Mail.

Tests have been done with dna taken from a human and placed miles away.The human is shown upsetting images and as they react the dna also reacts in the same way, with no delay.
Have you got a source for this information ? thx
. . . the stability of DNA is in part the result of quantum entanglement.
This new theory, which is certain to provoke as many skeptical voices as words of interest, began with wondering what role, if any, might quantum entanglement play in DNA. Quantum entanglement is described, simply, as two separate particles that work together as if they were one particle no matter how far apart they might be. If one particle moves up, the other particle moves down, instantly, as if they were on the ends of a teeter-totter. They are a system that behaves as one particle. In the case of DNA, the ‘particles’ are the molecules of the DNA base pairs, formed by the nucleotides with adenine, guanine, thymine, and cytosine. Each nucleotide is surrounded by a cloud of electrons that behave as if the nucleotide were an atomic nucleus. The cloud shifts relative to the nucleus, perhaps influenced by what are called Van der Waals forces, from side to side so to speak forming a dipole (two poles), and this shifting is regular – a harmonic oscillation. In solid-state physics, the oscillation of molecules within a solid is known as a phonon, a kind of quasi-particle that vibrates at a specific frequency and gives the solid many of its electrical and physical properties. In DNA, when a base pair is formed the clouds of each nucleotide must oscillate in opposite directions if the bond is to hold together.
The key question for the researchers was what influence does the double helical structure of DNA have on this oscillation? To answer the question, they first modeled how the phonons would behave at absolute zero temperature. Here (mathematically) it was clear the phonons would be typical quantum objects, existing as both waves and particles exhibiting the property of quantum entanglement. As it turns out, the size of the DNA helix corresponds rather well to the wavelength (frequency) of the phonons. This correspondence causes the phonons to stay within this frequency, something called ‘phonon trapping.’ Though the nucleotide phonons in each base pair oscillate in opposite directions they do so in a quantum entangled system – they act together and at the same frequency, ensuring the stability of the pair bond and of the helix itself.
At least that’s what the model shows can happen. The model also shows that this configuration can maintain the bond at high temperatures – room temperatures or above (e.g. 20 degrees C or 68 degrees F). The quantum entanglement is vital to making this work, because under classical mechanics the vibration of the particles in the helix would shake it apart, especially at higher temperatures.
Of course, this is all modeling. What must come next is experimental evidence. It won’t come easily. The researchers point to the notion that using classical mechanics to add up the energy necessary to hold the helix together comes out short, and that adding the quantum effects makes up the difference. But this is indirect evidence.
