Doppelganger. The oft used word for a person who looks exactly like someone else. There’s scientific stuff that tells us it’s very unlikely. I like science. It tells us that people are unique. They have their own character, their own quirkiness. It’s a fact that most of the planet will find a mate, a soul partner that they will spend the rest of their lives with.

Your brain will analyze hundreds of peoples faces in fractions of a second and will it will determine who it believes you will find attractive or not. How? By analyzing millimetric dimensions and angles in fractions of a second. Seriously?
Then there’s the street photographer. They also factor in light, shade, angles and attitude. We leave the thousandths of a second to the camera. Therein lay the weakness. If it were just a case of blinking to capture and share the fleeting image, we’d all be experts and there would be no experts.
