- I have met my Doppleganger, and his name is Trent Loos.....
Trent Loos is just like me. He is an advocate for a point of view. He
is fiercely interested in understanding the people he opposes. And on
a personal level, he's polite and cordial. He's just like me, except
that his views are diametrically opposed to mine. He advocates what
he calls "production agriculture." I would call it factory farming.
By knee jerk it seems Trent refuses to accept any piece of
information that indicts his industry, whether obtained through
scientific discovery or first-hand account.
Trent and I met for three hours at the Veg City Diner (New York City)
on Monday, May 19th (2003). We had so much to talk about, because we
both live and breathe the same subject matter. But again, we
disagreed on simply everything!
I believe in hearing "the other side" on every issue. The more I hear
these opposing arguments, the better my own are shaped.
If this kind of approach appeals to you, check out Trent's Web site:
and then hear the sound file for Trent's radio program. He
interviewed me when we met at Veg City Diner.
Sound file (Loos Tales):
In an earlier radio broadcast, Trent alluded to me. That sound file
may also be of interest to you. Go to:
for that program.
Now, go to:
to read the essay that Trent wrote that began our dialogue.
Definition: DOPPLEGANGER: From the German, meaning 'double walker,' a
ghostly double or counterpart of a living person.
Go to: http://www.occultopedia.com/d/doppelganger.htm
The belief that each person has an identical 'twin' somewhere, though
they are unrelated, is a very ancient one. Sometimes the Doppelganger
is the direct opposite personality of the real person; a very nice
person will have an evil Doppelganger and vice-versa. Legend says
that if the two should meet, they will both die.
