"The science of twinology (the study of twins) once considered an offshoot of psychology, has grown steadily over the years to become a discipline of its own. Not all twins are identical and only some identical twins are considered to be classic mirror twins. Although mirror twins appear identical they are in fact opposites. Left handed and right handed as it were and in extreme cases twins may manifest themselves as a 'good twin' and an 'evil twin'. Only a twin can truly talk to himself, love or hate himself in the physical sense. Twinology as a field of study touches on many related issues such as those of telepathy and the nature of consciousness itself and hold much fascination for those of us secretly two people from the waist up."
