Twins & Their Telepathic Abilities by Anissa Mendoza
What are the different types of twins?• Identical twins: Babies that come from the same egg once fertilized by one sperm. The fertilized egg then splits into to embryos. Once born the embryos will be the same sex and look the same. Identical twins are natures own clones.
• Siamese twins: Twins born joined together somewhere on their body. This is the result of an incomplete division of then ovum where the twins developed.
• Fraternal twins: Babies that come from two different eggs that has been fertilized by two sperm. Fraternal twins can be the same sex or a boy and a girl, and they don’t look the same.
Statistics• The risks during pregnancy and delivery are set high for women caring twins and multiples.• In majority of pregnancies there are greatly increased risks of fetal abnormality and therefore abortion.• Any pregnancy with multiples is considered high risk.
• Close to 60 percent of all twins are born prematurely (before 36 weeks).• Twins can be delivered vaginally if the first twin is breached if not c- sections are scheduled to occur.• Three in every 100 pregnant women in the U.S. give birth to twins or multiples.• http://www.babycenter.com/0_pregnant- with-multiples-potential- complications_3584.bc
The bond between twins:• Identical twins have a stronger bond with each other than fraternal twins do. Fraternal twins have no more of a stronger connection with each other than normal brothers and sisters. They only significant difference is that they share a fetal environment.
Pseudoscience:• any of various methods, theories, or systems, as astrology, psychokinesis, or clairvoyance, considered as having no scientific basis.
• In 2009, 15 year old Gemma Houghton saved her twin sister Leanne’s life. Gemma was struck by the sudden feeling that her sister was in trouble. She went to the bathroom where Leanne had been taking a shower and found her under the water, blue and unconscious. Leanne is an epileptic and had suffered a stroke while taking a bath. Gemma pulled Leanne out of the tub and started administering CPR, saving her life.• The Houghton twins are very close and are together all the time, but they happen to be fraternal twins.• This story made headlines and captured many people’s attention.
Fact or Fiction?• There have been extensive research on the field of telepathy at which many researchers have looked into.• Although there is no scientific evidence proving the sixth sense, many twins (more identical than fraternal) have experienced the phenomenon.
