Have you ever been in a situation where you look at someone and feel like you’re looking in a mirror? You definitely have if you have an identical twin brother or sister, but if you don't, seeing another person who looks like or is dressed like you can make you feel like the universe is experiencing glitches in the matrix. 

Though the doppelganger mythology says that meeting your own twin stranger is an incredibly bad omen, nowadays, it just causes some confusion and laughter. Oh, and also outfit envy! 

While catching a real life glitch is a matter of luck, they aren’t as rare as to be mythical. In fact, we found 59 photos proving that these glitches in the matrix are real! And if you’ve captured any look-alikes that seem like a glitch in the matrix, we'd love to see them in this list, and don't forget to vote for your favorite photos!

For some reason, I keep coming across this picture on the internet. Is this an 'alternate reality', or what?

    What’s The Meaning Behind Real Life Glitches? 

    Without diving too deep into the metaphysical and the unexplained, we have to ask ourselves: Are the glitches in real life true, and how can they be explained? 

    If we accept these glitches in the matrix stories to be genuine, we’re accepting the belief that our reality isn’t real but rather a computer simulation ruled upon us by someone. On the other hand, we can find some real-life phenomena that could be called a glitch in the matrix. We’re talking about déjà vu, the Mandela effect, memories of past lives, luck, and maybe alien abductions.

    If we’re talking about the latter, we may assume they are genuine—after all, plenty of people have experienced them and think of them as absolutely real.

    As for the glitch in the matrix meaning, it may mean different things to all of us. Maybe they’re here to serve as a reminder that while we’re the owners of our lives, our fate isn’t all in our hands?

    Holy Cow! Even the shirt collars are identical. But one is left handed, and the other is right handed.

    What Are The Examples Of Glitches In Real Life?

    As we briefly mentioned in our previous section, we think that a couple of real-life phenomena could be called glitches in the matrix. Those are déjà vu, the Mandela effect, memories of past lives, and pure luck. 

    The first one, the déjà vu, is a French term that literally means “already seen.” Anyone who has experienced it will agree that a déjà vu gives you a sense of overwhelming familiarity with a particular event, a face, an object, or a circumstance—quite a spooky feeling. 

    ADVERTISEMENT

    The second is the Mandela effect refers to a situation when a significant mass of people firmly believe that a particular event happened when, in fact, it didn’t. As for the memories of past lives, some believe that we all have those and often recall something from our other lives to solve problems in our current one. And luck is here to remind us that we aren’t always the sole rulers of our own fate, and happy coincidences sometimes change the course of our lives.  

    ADVERTISEMENT

    What are these phenomena, if not glitches in the matrix? They do seem like errors in the code of our existence, and without any solid evidence as to why they’re happening, they carry a mythical aura. If you’re just as fascinated with these glitch in the matrix stories as we are, continue to scroll through our list of incredible photos of real life glitches captured by people all over the world.
