The Tegatards TV Initiative

To all Tegatards who miss our Streams, who miss our group chats, I am putting together a little project, that hopefully will cover both bases.

I have set up a group account for Livestream, and I have started a sideblog to act as ‘programming guide’ Any of you interested in a return to the days of constant streams and chats, feel free to message me. The more people interested, the more we can fill up a schedule, the sooner we can get the ball rolling.

Think of it as (more or less) developing a TV channel, that we can jointly host, with predetermined timeslots (with plenty of leeway for timeshifting, if need be).

I know I am not the only one who misses the streams, what do tyhe lot of you think? 

For convenience sake, time schedules (when worked out) will be posted to this blog over here, future updates will also first be posted over there, after a few notifications here.

I will reblog/repost this later on, as a reminder.

Reblogging because it was pretty friggin late when I first reblogged. Another notice will be blogged on non-Easter.

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.
