BC’S HOGAN TWINS SHARE A BRAIN AND SEE OUT OF EACH OTHER’S EYES


snip
Krista and Tatiana Hogan share the senses of touch and taste and even control one another’s limbs. Tatiana can see out of both of Krista’s eyes, while Krista can only see out of one of Tatiana’s.


The twins say they know one another’s thoughts without having to speak. “Talking in our heads” is how they describe it.

Absolutely. They're the type of questions that aren't that difficult if you have a materialist view of consciousness. But difficult as hell if you believe in a special 'soul' floating around inside of you.

That is; a problem for immaterialism.
