Yes, it's sad that the sensational freakishness of the topic makes it sort
of taboo. It would like to see some really extensive interviews with them
when they grow up a bit. I can certainly appreciate the desire to be left
alone or to be accepted into social normalcy, but to me their situation is
so much more interesting than normalcy, I wish that they (these twins and
Abby and Brittany too) would talk about their conscious experience in

Right, twins separated at birth sometimes find obscure idiopathic behaviors

This is where I feel like we should be seeing the limitation of the genetic
assumption of identity. Surely a gene cannot cause an event like marrying
to be synchronized. What if you found the gene and changed it the night
before the wedding? It doesn't really make sense that two isolated
mechanisms in different people can cause an event outside of themselves to
happen. To me this supports my view that time, sense, and energy are really
the same thing and space, matter, and information are their shadows.
