Do twins share a telepathic link ?

It has long been speculated that identical twins share a telepathic link, in a recent college entrance examination in China twin girls received exactly the same score prompting an investigation in to their potential telepathic bond.
Do twins have telepathy? When twin sisters got the same scores on this year's national college entrance examination, villagers in Shaoxing, east China's Zhejiang Province started to wonder if the girls read one another's minds, according to a story on Zjol.com. "

I find interesting the stories of twins separated at birth , adopted out , and then led very similar lives while never knowing the other existed . Identical Twins Separated at Birth

I remember the story posted in the bizarre news here about the twins, one male and the other female. They too were seperated at birth and both ended up marrying each other. They soon realized something wasn't right and eventually a DNA test showed they were twins. The interesting thing about causality and all we are is predetermined then why do you feel the need to tell people this? it doesn't make a diffrence. This means that we don't mean anything and thus can't achieve anything then we have nothing to do. If we have no choice then the meaning of life is beyond us because we can't do anythin... [More]

I think it's amusing when people wonder about telepathy when it happens ALL THE TIME. And I do mean constantly. It just isn't recognized as such. And this is a GREAT quote that was posted above: "At it's most basic level, science is supposed to represent the investigation of the unexplained, not the explaination of the uninvestigated." - Hunt for the Skinwalker

I think it's just a case of two individuals sharing an almost identical biology, family history, and experiences. Identical twins is actually one of the reasons why I don't think free will exists. The more similar their experiences, generally, the more alike they are. This points to the possibility that all that we are is determined by just the physical world around us, and our own genetics. If that's true, then we are completely controlled by causation... every decision we ever make will have been pre-determined. If it's pre-determined by outside factors, then I don't really see that as our d... [More]

It is my theory that the human body is much like the frequency on a radio band. In the case of identical twins they are on the same frequency. This does not necessarily mean that they are telepathic. I liken it to playing two musical instruments that are exactly the same in every way. Given the same music, if played in succession from behind a screen by the same person, one could not possibly tell one from the other. My question, in this example, would be: did they have the same teacher? If yes, then given the fact that they were raised in the same environment and shared the same experiences t... [More]

I actually used to agree with this view, but I now sit on the fence. I watched a film called Waking Life which argued this point very well, using some scientific facts to back up the argument. But on that film they never said "this is definitely science fact," and in fact the guy who was animated to portray the point even stated a strong point against it. His argument was all to do with atoms and how they pre-determine everything we do. In the most basic sense...when you are conceived your atoms form and duplicate again and again, knock against each other etc. and all of these events spark off... [More]

Am I the only one who does not follow this... uh... for the lack of a better word... reasoning? Sorry to go over your head. Here it is, basically: 1. Two unrelated people born in different households and different cultures will probably be very different 2. Two siblings will be more alike because they share roughly half of the same genes, and grew up in the same household. 3. Twins are very alike because they have the same genes and almost the same environment (their environments differ slightly in that they are still two different individuals, and will sometimes have different conversations w...

Even if that assumption isn't correct, then free will is still very limited. The way I see it, the amount that the environment, your genetics, and randomness takes part in making you who you are is inversely proportional to free will. Free will would require that you make yourself. -oh, and all these posts may seem off-topic, but they all relate to the twin telepathy issue. If we live in a deterministic universe, then you would expect twins to often have the same thoughts as the other. It isn't telepathy, it's just the result of them having a very similar biology and background, making them ne... [More]
