  "Twin Peaks" (1990)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
One of the truly great, original TV dramas, Twin Peaks was far from perfect; however, quite a few of its run of 29 episodes undoubtedly were.
His contribution to the series is immense, as a new focus is provided; climaxing with the stunning end to the penultimate episode at the Miss Twin Peaks Contest.
Twin Peaks is a beautiful series aesthetically, from the wonderful titles sequence, Angelo Badalamenti's stunningly evocative music scores to some wonderfully innovative photography and direction - usually in those episodes helmed by Lynch.

Twin souls will both recognize this extraordinary bond, whether they are evolved and whole enough to acknowledge and act upon it is another thing.
Twin soul love is not to be confused with an obsessive/compulsive disorder, it's not a desire to "possess" another, but truly a challenge to love unconditionally and without expectation, to be whole and complete within yourself before joining with the other whole and complete side of your soul.
I would advise anyone who believes they have met their twin, yet is in such pain from that meeting, that perhaps the time for union is not right, or that they are enmeshed in a karmic soul mate or "near twin" relationship.

 Upstream: Upstream: Issues: Psychology: IQ: Minnesota Twins   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
MZA twins share prenatal and perinatal environments, but except for effects of actual trauma, such as fetal alcohol syndrome, there is little evidence that early shared environment significantly contributes to the variance of psychological traits.
Twins are especially vulnerable to prenatal and perinatal trauma, but these effects are most likely to decrease, rather than increase, within-pair similarity [22].
Since only a few of these MZA twins were reared in real poverty or by illiterate parents and none were retarded, this heritability estimate should not be extrapolated to the extremes of environmental disadvantage still encountered in society.

 Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome / TTTS, Fetal Care Center of Cincinnati   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Approximately 20 percent of all twin pregnancies are monochorionic, and the incidence of Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome in monochorionic diamniotic gestations is approximately 10 to 20 percent.
The donor twin is characterized by oliguria, oligohydramnios or anhydramnios, growth restriction and abnormal umbilical artery Doppler velocimetry.
The rationale for this approach is that cord occlusion and sacrifice of one twin arrests the syndrome, prolongs the gestation, and maximizes the outcome for one twin.

 UCSF - Radiology - US Evaluation of Complicated Twin Pregnancies
Among twin pregnancies, the relative risk of complications depends on whether each fetus is attached to its own placenta (dichorionic) or must share a placenta (monochorionic).
The high risks of MC twin gestations are largely related to the vascular anatomy of the shared placenta and the presence of inter-twin vascular connections.
In the acardiac fetus, the direction of blood flow in the umbilical cord is reversed, giving rise to the name “twin reversed arterial perfusion” or TRAP sequence, in which the blood entering the body of the anomalous, acardiac fetus is pumped into its umbilical artery by the co-twin.
