A woman who could appear in two places at once

Emilie Sagée

It has been asked that if an electron can be in two places at once, why can't we?

Throughout history, there actually have been cases of people who were said to be able to appear in more than one place at the same time. One such case was that of Emilie Sagée.

Emilie Sagée was a 32-year-old schoolteacher who worked at a girls' school near the area of what is now Latvia during the mid-1800s. Although she was reported to be a great teacher, her students would also claim that sometimes they would be able to see two of her at once.

One instance of this was when Sagée was writing on the chalkboard. Her students reported that her double appeared beside her and was mimicking her movements, except that it was not holding any chalk. Another very similar incident occurred while she was eating dinner, and her double once again appeared behind her, copying her movements of eating except that it was not holding any utensils.

An incident when the double did not appear in the same exact room was when another teacher was supervising the students while Sagée was gathering flowers in the school's garden. When the teacher left the room for a few moments, the students saw Sagée's double appear in the teacher's chair while they could clearly see that she was still in the garden. A few girls even attempted to touch the double, however they felt a strange sort of resistance surrounding the figure. Then a student managed to step between the table and chair where the double sat. It remained unmoving and then slowly disappeared.

Although Sagée claimed to have never seen her double, she was able to sense when it was there as she would suddenly get weak and tired when it was said to appear.

There are also cases of someone's double appearing as a foretelling of the person's upcoming death. One such incident occurred when Queen Elizabeth I saw her exact double lying in her bed. She died soon afterwards.
