The Universe is in effect a vast sea of interacting particles, and each particle - in its interactions - plays a part on binding the whole together. Similarly, it may be clearly surmised that society performs in exactly the same way, regardless of the illusion of separation. Our actions, determinations, choices and thoughts contribute to the pattern of universal systems, at once subject to random dice-throwing and on the other hand bound by indelible forces of nature. Everett's interpretation and the Copenhagen interpretation are both looking at the same sets of data, and the questions that arise are not inherent in the maths, but in the nature of consciousness as a creative, influential, and guiding force.
Having struggled to assimilate my own TF pattern with any kind of logic at all, I'm given to fall back on the factual fabric of nonlocality which has delivered numerous affirmations of its own. I've come to the conclusion that somewhere in the middle of it all, you're given to find yourself, but when you do, you're also given to protect it. For the TF is neither a partner nor a lover, nor even a long-term friend. The TF dynamic is the consequence of two deeply attracted people setting light to a highly charged stream of energy and finding themselves caught up in an annihilation sequence of reaction and reverberation. These people may not be compatible on any realistic, practical level. The chances statistically of them meeting are correspondingly low, just as the chances of electron-positron intersection are relatively low. When it happens, however, the explosion is a matter of record, its force being enough to spill a vast quantity of desired energy into the social universe from which some benefit - not necessarily apparent to the parties concerned - is gained. Many TFs sit tight on the sidelines, leaving those who are predisposed to pen-addiction piecing together some kind of picture as to what the TF relationship looks like.
TwinFlame is a lesson for two deeply entangled people who at the heart of matters are unlikely to change. The bright glare of potential compatibility won't always handle the light of logical assimilation. That's not to take anything from the lesson, or the internal self-work that goes with it, or the healing element that you're naturally forced to go through, or the fact that you're only going to get one such test in your lifetime. Not to say that in lifetimes hence you won't find yourself squaring up to your eternal twin on more of a balanced footing. Whatever the future holds in this lifetime or the next, it's as well to be sure of who you are, to keep hold of your position in unshakable honesty and to value your integrity even when the self-searching you are pushed into creates a vortex from which seemingly you can't escape.
An empath will always care. You'll care whether your TF keeps their blinds down against the light for evermore, whether they are truly happy, whether they'll ever find what you so dearly would have loved to share with them. But annihilation is swift, it comes sooner than you can blink - there is nothing you can do with hindsight other than to learn from it. If your path is true, the energy will change course into another trajectory of greater value. In this situation, you are only left to learn about yourself, because this particular dynamic won't be coming round again, you can be very sure of that. Which is why the TF relationship is so uniquely special.
