New information about Haile and Nibret came out – Strangers Who Met Their Doppelgängers

Meeting a doppelganger could only spell bad luck throughout history, and many folktales regarded it as a negative omen. A doppelganger was perceived as a sinister twin or possibly a supernatural being. Heautoscopy, or hallucinations of seeing one’s own body in the distance, may be symptoms of schizophrenia and epilepsy, which explains why it was often thought to be a sign of bad luck. The science behind these twin strangers is also rather gloomy. Fortunately, we can now refer to someone who resembles us physically or behaviorally as a doppelganger in a more open-ended and neutral way.
