There is a discussion in other forum regarding doppelganger and someone mentioned "programmed reality" and quotes a paragraph of Mr. Elvidge without attribution :(

But the discussion theme itself, as an anomaly is interesting, A doppelganger is a person's double.

Don't have time right now on account of I'm posting here, when I get time, Saturday or Sunday, I'll have to register there and credit the source of the quote. Give credit where it is due, I say.
I thought this thread was about the 60's Gary Anderson sci-fi classic, 'Journey To The Far Side Of The Sun', aka 'Doppelganger'. d'oh!
Edit:
Also the subject of an episode of the Gary Anderson tv series Space:1999, the episode 'Another Time, Another Place'.

You do know that if you ever meet your doppelganger that it's mutual annihilation, right?

BTW:
My doppelganger lives in Russia, looks, acts, and thinks just as I do.

Wow Guillermo, great find. Thanks for posting. And welcome to the forum - we look forward to many more posts.

Re. the credit, that certainly would have been nice, but I also just like that the word is getting out there and people are talking about it.

By the way, Tracy, I've always assumed that my doppelganger exists on a different server.

I am not so sure about that, I have seen what I think is my doppelganger 3 times, I am sure that the guy that I saw was my double, the second time that I saw my doppelganger he was driving a car of the exact make, model and color than the one I used to drive in that time! He was wearing exactly the same kind and color of clothes the I was wearing! the only difference was that I was driving my car southbound and he was driving northbound down the avenue, it was almost like looking at myself on a giant mirror. English is not my first language, I hope that I explained myself good enough.

Guillermo:
What I remember of my mythology, and everything that I've seen in sci-fi films, I might want to steer clear of my doppleganger.
Maybe you're right, I don't know if I'd want to risk it. I won't be taking that tourist trip to Chernobyl anytime soon. Yes, I would want to go there. I found a website once of a gal, daughter of a Russian physicist who would ride her motocycle there and take pics. But my doppleganger in close proximity (geographically). Think

Yes, you explain very well.

If that's the case, I'd say you're safe. :)

Perhaps JJ Abrams was influenced a little by the Sliders series & other examples of doppelgangers in parallel worlds. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlie_Jade
His FRINGE series is full of several doppel-characters & alternate versions of NYC & Boston, etc. Reality isn't just curved, perpendicular & horizontal, because there are plenty of curved balls in the mix.
