In folklore the doppelganger Is a strange entity a biologically Unrelated copy Physical and perhaps even mental of a Living person The concept appears in the mythology and Traditions Of many cultures throughout human History Whilst two unrelated people can look Uncannily alike The doppelganger is said to be something Other a paranormal being that is an Apparition of a living person a spirit Double Or as the literal translation of the German word states A double walker or double goer Undeniably an unnerving concept In some of the most sinister tales of Doppelgangers these beings are claimed To stalk their earthly counterpart In the hopes of taking their place and May even be A servant of death itself The belief that doubles are omens of Death is widespread Someone who is said to have experienced Such a prophetic doppelganger is percy Bish shelley One of the major english romantic poets Of the 19th century shelley moved to Italy in 1818 with his wife Mary wolstencraft shelley the author of

The gothic classic frankenstein They spent time living in different Parts of the country And in the summer of 1822 the shelleys Were living in a villa near larichi On the shores of the bay of la spezia Shortly after arriving there it is said That percy began to experience A series of strange visions he related His experiences to his wife in the early Hours of the 23rd of june After suffering a terrible nightmare According to a letter mary wrote to her Friend about the matter only a couple of Weeks later Percy had seen a figure of himself which Met him As he walked on the terrace of their Villa the figure was He claimed his own image a doppelganger When it approached him he claimed that It spoke asking him How long do you mean to be content Terrifyingly this wasn’t the first time That shelley had claimed to have Encountered such a figure Shelley only 29 years old suffered from A chronic lung complaint And was often ill as well as Experiencing periods of depression It was thought that his visions were Hallucinations caused by his ill health And yet the figure he saw on the terrace Was not so

For shelley was not the only one who saw His duplicate In his wife’s letter mary explained that Jane williams A close friend who lived with the couple Also saw percy’s doppelganger Described by mary as a woman of Sensibility who was not in the slightest Degree nervous Jane reported seeing shelley pass by the Window she was standing at A usual route for percy only to pass Again shortly afterwards Heading in the very same direction jane Had not moved from the window and On account of a 20-foot wall the only Way shelley could have come back was to Have passed in front of the window again And yet he had not as such it seemed to Jane As if there had been two of him only a Few short days after percy related his Strange encounters to his Wife on the 8th of july he met his end Whilst sailing the bay of la spezia A storm and the inexperience of the crew Caused his boat to sink Lost forever beneath the waves shelley’s Badly decomposed body washed ashore 10 days later was his untimely demise Presaged By the appearance of his doppelganger Some of the most convincing cases of Doppelgangers are those witnessed by

Those other than the duplicated person In fact in very rare instances the Duplicated person Is completely unaware of the existence Of their double In 1845 a 32 year old teacher by the Name of emily sergey Started working at a private all-girls French language school In latvia a talented and well-liked Member of the teaching staff There was no reason for anything strange Or otherworldly to be connected to Sanjay And yet before too long her students Noticed Something very peculiar about their new Teacher with her ultimately finding Herself at the eye of a hurricane Of rumor and speculation there were After all As it was claimed by the students not One But two emily sashes the strange story Can be traced back to one particular Lesson When sanjay turned to right on the Chalkboard with her back to the class it Is said that a second Sachet appeared unseen by the first and Started mimicking the original’s Movements The two women not only looked the same But acted the same

Or so another incident occurred on an Evening when sanjay ate in the dining Hall And her double yet again manifest Mirroring her actions once more Before too long the appearances happened More frequently It is even claimed that on one occasion On a hot summer’s day the following year The entire student body of 42 girls Witnessed the appearance of saj’s Doppelganger during a sewing lesson They were being taught by a different Teacher at the time with the real sage Outside in the school’s garden Her double it is claimed appeared when The sewing teacher left the room to Speak to a colleague She is said to have just stared at the Girls wordless And terrifying perhaps the most ominous Element of this case is however the fact That sage never once witnessed her own Double Whilst it could be argued that the Children were playing a mean Practical joke by consistently claiming To have seen a duplicate of their Teacher What is more difficult to explain is how Saje whilst never seeing her Doppelganger did Seem to be aware of its presence in a Physical way

It is said that when the figure would Appear the colour would drain from the Teacher’s face and she would be overcome With fatigue To the point that her movements became Listless almost as if her spirit double Was draining her life force Whenever it came near ultimately it is Claimed that saje was fired from her job The persistent appearance of her Doppelganger simply too frightening for The school to tolerate According to some reports the tormented Teacher held 18 different teaching Positions In just 16 years suggesting that her Duplicate continued to stalk her Wherever She went One paranormal explanation for Doppelgangers is that Far from being a malevolent spirit Entity these figures are merely versions Of ourselves that exist In another dimension they are in short a Bleed through from a parallel Universe what might cause such a bleed Through to occur Is of course unknown however such an Explanation does suggest that whilst the Manifestation of a double may appear Sinister It is rather more mundane and quite Possibly entirely harmless

Even so that has not stopped people who Have encountered so-called doppelgangers From being Shocked or even fearful by what they Have seen In 1905 sir frederick khan rash A british politician and member of Parliament fell Ill with influenza bedridden and too Sick to work His fellow members did not expect to see Him at a planned parliamentary debate Shortly before easter as such many were Shocked when rash was seen at the house Of commons Present and very much healthy what Followed was a series of strange reports Made by a number of politicians later Reported on by several local and National newspapers an article published In drury’s derby mercury Dating from may 1905 described how mp Sir gilbert parker saw his friend rash Out of his place in the house of commons And then by the position he occupied Knowing that he had been very ill Parker was surprised to see him and so Nodded at rashed cheerfully and asked Him if he was feeling better Rash did not reply and made no sign Parker considered this to be odd and Explained that his friend’s position was His And yet not his whilst the figure

Clearly looked to be rash His expression was steely his face Remarkably pallid And his whole demeanor grim confused by His strange behavior Parker turned away and continued his Business when Only a moment later he turned back Towards rash he was gone Puzzled and a little unnerved he had Once went in search of him Expecting to find him in the lobby However he was not there either After quizzing multiple people present At the house parker was surprised to Discover no one else had seen Rash or so he thought a letter from Colonel sir arthur hater Written on the 13th of may and published In the daily news on the 17th Stated that he too had seen rash at the House of commons when he was lying ill At home According to the latter hater confirmed That he not only saw sukhan rash Sitting below the gangway not in his Usual seat but that he caught the Attention of another mp Sir henry campbell bannerman saying that He wondered why all the papers inserted Notices Of sukhan rash’s illness when he was Sitting opposite Apparently quite well sir henry it is

Said Looked at rash and replied that he hoped His illness was not Catching as far as both hater and Campbell bannerman were concerned Rash was without a doubt present at Parliament that day All in all rash’s grim double as the Figure became known Was noticed by at least three members of The commons Later when rash learned about his Supposed double ganga He confirmed that he had not been in his Place at westminster at the time And had indeed been ill in fact contrary To what some Thought at the time he made a full Recovery and did not die until Several years later rash is instead said To have taken the peculiar incident in His stride And when he spoke with parker later who Had been very concerned believing the Apparition he saw to have been an Omen of rash’s impending death accepted His congratulations upon having not died Went home told the story and supposedly Made everyone in his family Appropriately miserable that he had not Succumbed to the influenza Could it then be that far from being a Harbinger of death Rash’s grim double was instead a version

Of himself Continuing his work in a parallel world Ever so slightly different from our own Where rash did not fall ill and although Still an mp Sat in a different seat in the house of Commons Whilst not everyone who sees or has Their doppelgangers seen Meets their end soon afterwards there Are enough reports of such allegedly Happening For people to fear encountering their Double in this way Those who believe in the power of the Spirit double warn against Trying to communicate with them if you Do encounter one Stating that such an interaction could Have terrible Unintended consequences one of the first Books to popularize the term Doppelganger was katherine crowe’s 1848 Book On paranormal phenomena the night side Of nature In her book crow explores the idea of The human soul Having the ability to unanchor itself From the physical body Whilst in a state of trance or catalypsy With the freed spirit being as the Spirits of the actual dead Free to roam and if it so chooses
