|Identical twins, Roselle New Jersey 1967 - Diane Arbus|
On my trip to Detroit, a somewhat older flight attendant from St. Paul was telling me a story of a pair of siamese twins that work out at a gym she belongs to. I was peppering her with questions. I have so many questions, two trunks, one pair of legs, two distinct personalities, who gets to decide where to go? When to sleep? Can they communicate nonverbally? Pardon me, but do they share the satisfaction of physical pleasure and can I get a little help on the mechanics involved?
Sort of fascinating to think of two psyches sharing physical space or is it one psyche, one big collective nervous system with two separate heads? Do they ever go through protracted periods of not speaking? Equal smarts?Any hobbies? Separate marriages and individual friendships? Interesting people to meet, I would think. One entity or two?
