Interesting to me. I wonder just how many people will really think these guys are time travelers. I also wonder what the probability is of everyone in the world having someone alive at some point in time that looked just like them.

Does that mean the people portrayed in the historical pictures were also "famous" back in that time?
My reasoning is that for a picture to survive for so long and be readily available on the Internet, it must've held some importance back then right?
Whether the picture was taken of a popular person back in that era, or of a person attending an important event, it seems like these lookalikes may have been of some importance back then just as their counterparts are today.

What's more interesting to me is the concept of reincarnation and the fact that you might continue to look identical to your old self as you progress through various lives.
I believe this is the reason why we recognize "soul mates" or people we "love" or "click" with from just a passing glance or look. How many times have you said " WOW, you look really familiar, have we met?" and then instantly start "clicking" with that person.
Love this stuff!!!!
