A Doppleganger is a look-alike or double of a living person, sometimes portrayed as a paranormal phenomenon, and in some traditions as a harbinger of bad luck.

AppearanceEdit

Dopplegangers are often described as looking exactly like the witness in every way, even clothing.

Possible ExplanationsEdit

There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:

  • A ghost
  • An interdimensional traveler
  • A demonic presence

Notable EncountersEdit

Abraham Lincoln was known as “Honest Abe,” and as such was very open about his interest in the paranormal . . . at least in private discussions. According to the man himself, he also experienced some paranormal activity. On the night of his first election, he took a moment to rest on his couch one evening. While lying there, he happened to glance in a mirror and saw his own visage—except that he had two faces.

A second Lincoln, pale and ghostly, was looking at him from the mirror, right next to his own face. Startled, he rose from the couch...and the doppelganger disappeared. He sat back down, only to see it again.

Lincoln was startled, but his wife Mary was downright terrified. She was convinced that the doppelganger was bad news—a certain sign that Lincoln would be re-elected on a second term (possibly because two Lincolns equals two terms), but wouldn’t survive it (because the second Lincoln looked deathly).

Lincoln went on to repeat the couch experiment every once in a while. He did manage to glimpse the doppelganger one more time, but after that it stopped appearing. Maybe it had delivered its message, as Lincoln indeed didn’t make it through his second term. (listverse.com)

TriviaEdit

  • The word "doppelgänger" is often used in a more general sense to describe any person who physically or behaviorally resembles another person.
