Doppelganger
Posted 7/29/08 , edited 7/29/08
A doppelgänger or fetch is the fictional ghostly double of a living person, a sinister form of bilocation.

In the vernacular, "Doppelgänger" has come to refer to any double or look-alike of a person. The literal translation of the German word is "double–goer," meaning someone who is acting the same way as another person. The word is also used to describe the sensation of having glimpsed oneself in peripheral vision, in a position where there is no chance that it could have been a reflection.[citation needed] They are generally regarded as harbingers of bad luck. In some traditions, a doppelgänger seen by a person's friends or relatives portends illness or danger, while seeing one's own doppelgänger is an omen of death. In Norse mythology, a vardøger is a ghostly double who precedes a living person; the double is seen performing the living person's actions in advance.


I became interested in doppelganger ever since i read a book about them . I long wanted to create this thread and ask people opinion about this .

So what do u think ?

Personally , doppelganger is a bad sign . If u see your own doppel , it means death "stated inside the book i read" . Dogs and cats have been known to see doppelgangers . Providing sympathetic company , a doppelganger almost always stands behind its other half and do not cast a reflection in a mirror .

Other doppelgangers can be dangerous .It almost certainly means bad news if you see your own doppelganger . Queen Elizabeth I saw her own spitting self-image laid out on her bed and she died shortly after . Percy Bysshe Shelly , the English poet , encounters his doppelganger in Italy . He saw his phantom "twin" silently pointing towards the Mediterranean Sea . Not long after and shortly before his 30th birthday in 1822 , Shelly died in a sailing accident in the Mediterranean Sea .

Well in my dream. And I don't want to see that ever again. Brrrrr


Edit : Thinking about it... (Dammit this thread is scaring me ) In one of my dreams I picked up my aunts picture and all of a sudden in the picture she started screaming. Fuck when I woke up I started crying. Couple of days later she died of Hepatitis B.
