You’ve heard of twin telepathy, but have you ever heard of something like this?!
Twin telepathy is the idea that twins think alike because they are, well…twins. It’s not exactly a medical term and it has been widely disregarded as urban legend or an old wives tale, but there is more truth in the term than most are willing to give it credit for.
While twins probably don’t know whether the other wants French fries or mashed potatoes, they could have a deeper connection than medicine says is possible. Time and again cases have shown twins possessing a special bond and possibly nothing proves that quite like the story of the Jackson twins.
Brielle and Kyrie Jackson were born 12 weeks premature back in 1995. While they were stable immediately after birth, one soon took a downward spiral. As she fought for her life, a nurse thought of putting the tiny girls in an incubator together. Instinctively, one reached out and wrapped her arm around the other.
The story proves the strength of the human touch and shows how connected we are. In fact, this story was so strong it went on to influence thoughts on medicine.
