Krista and Tatiana Hogan are craniopagus twins, meaning they’re connected at the head.

They share a structure that connects Krista’s thalamus to Tatiana’s. The thalamus is a double-lobed organ that plays important roles in processing sensory input and creating consciousness.

Since Krista’s and Tatiana’s thalami are connected, scientists and members of the Hogan family think the girls might view the world differently than the rest of us do.

For example, Dr. Cochrane believes the girls can see through each other’s eyes. He came to this conclusion after covering Krista’s eyes, placing electrodes on her head, and watched Krista’s brain respond after shining a light in Tatiana’s pupils.

Other times, one girl will be watching TV while the other is looking somewhere else. Suddenly, the twin not watching TV will start laughing at what’s happening onscreen.

Their “thalamic bridge” also affects their sense of taste. Krista is a ketchup fiend, but Tatiana hates the stuff. Once, Krista was eating ketchup, and Tatiana furiously tried to wipe it off her own tongue even though she wasn’t eating any ketchup herself.

Perhaps the strangest phenomenon of all is that the twins sometimes use the word “I” to describe both of themselves at once.

As of 2011, no one had run any conclusive tests on the girls and their odd condition. However, scientists who have observed their behavior and brain scans are flabbergasted and excited. While no one can say for sure at the moment, it really does seem Krista and Tatiana can share private thoughts and perceive what the other is sensing.

As someone who wants to study consciousness in the future, I can say this is one of the most extraordinary cases I have ever heard of.

I am not worried about whether my du’a will be responded to, but rather I am worried about whether I will be able to make du’a or not. So if I have been guided (by Allah) to make du’a, then (I know) that the response will come with it.

The latest episode of Game of Thrones has broken the record for the most people sharing a file simultaneously via BitTorrent. More than 193,000 people shared a single copy yesterday evening, and roughly 1.5 million people downloaded the episode during the first day.

These are unprecedented numbers – never before have 193,418 people shared a single file simultaneously. The previous record was set last year, when the season finale of Game of Thrones had 171,572 people sharing on a single tracker.

Just keep leaving that money on the table, HBO.

Find someone who understands your silence.

Most of the advice I get tends to be forgotten, but one thing I’ve always remembered is when someone told me that you know if a person is a friend if you can share a comfortable silence with them. I’ve noticed since then how true it is.

I agree with this quote too…it’s nice to have friends as defined as above, but even better are those few who understand what the silence means, they know what you’re thinking.

Sir David Attenborough nature documentary coming to Oculus Rift.
"Conquest of the Skies" is currently being shot in Borneo using a special camera rig that allows a 360 degree view of the scenes when viewed with the Oculus Rift headset.
Although there’s no firm release date for the headset, it’s thought to be likely to be available to the public as soon at late 2014, with Atlantic Productions hoping their documentary will be the first major wildlife production to be made available via the new tech.

One of the things that excites the company, Morris explained, is that there are no rules yet as to what a non-fiction experience on a totally new creative platform should be like. He compared audience experiences of using the Rift to the early reactions of cinema-goers attending the Lumière brothers’ famous The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Station in the late 1800s.
“In terms of the creative challenge, we look at this as being comparable to the beginning of the film industry,” he said.
