The Split-Apart Theory

The first ever written reference to each person having a destined mate was given from the ancient Greek philosopher, Plato (427 BC-348 BC). Plato's theory was that each human being is part of one soul, in which they only have half of. The idea is that the soul was "split-apart" and separated from each other– and, since that time, the two halves have been forever searching for one another in order to join together and regain their sense of original created wholeness.

Many serious theorists propose that each of these alleged halves of the one soul learns all of life's lessons at their own pace, and if the two halves happen to cross paths at some point during life, they may have a powerful bond; because they are each other's "split-apart". They find a truly genuine connection, they're so alike in emotions or issues, that in some cases it's too much for them to handle.

There are many studies and theorists that support this type of idea. As well as, a few movies, such as, "The Butcher's Wife" or many other romance movies out there. Another source that I feel definitely supports the idea of "split-aparts" is the story of Adam and Eve. I'm not saying any religious preferences and opinions of my own personal life. I'm simply stating that the bible is a very important book to hundreds of thousands of people across the globe, and the story of Adam and Eve talks about them being one and being split in two. Being each other's "split-apart".

Here's where my personal, hopeless romantic self kicks in. Do I believe in a "split-apart", a "meant to be" a destiny? It's a very abstract and sometimes unappealing idea to many, but I honestly believe in the soul and a "meant to be". Each person has a "split-apart" out there, but they don't always find them. For example, the people who are forever alone. They didn't come across the other half, and decided not to settle on just any companion to keep them company. And you could object to that statement and say that it's false and that some people just chose to be alone and like to be alone, but what if they were to come across that one person, that person that is their "split-apart" would it change everything?

Now the question that rises is, when/if you meet your "split-apart" how will you know? I read an article about a man who claimed he had met his "split-apart", ten years previously to writing his article. He claimed it was "too much" for him, like Plato's theory states could occur. The way the man explained his reason for knowing it was her, was by stating that it was "an easy, natural kind of love", "a different kind of love he had ever felt." The man said he knew when he saw her, that it was something out of the ordinary; that when he looked her in the eyes, everything just made sense.

When/if one were to meet their "split-apart", I believe it should be unique, unplanned and give you a feeling that you've never felt with another. I guess it's one of those things that you are unsure about, until you look at someone and wonder, "Is this what it feels like?"


  1. split-apart........... any way cool....i like it.

  2. I'm 45 years old and I've known this girl for 13 years and we happen to recently connect Right when she was getting divorced.she told me about split a parts and I must say I think she truly is mine.never heard about it before but I like the idea andmaybe there's some truth to it

  3. I'd prefer if my split-apart was in a female body like me if I am wearing a female body too. Or in a male body like me if I am wearing a male body too. Yeah, I know all souls are genderless. Anyways I believe that most twins are lucky to have their split-apart near with them. Or who knows. Maybe my split-apart is living in another planet, solar system, galaxy, or universe, or probably passed away a long time ago. Or probably isn't born yet, until probably a million years later.

  4. I met a chap 7 years ago, for various reasons, we never did end up together. We met again about a year ago, his now married, unhappily, I am single............we still know, we still both feel it, he is my split apart and I am his...............just a classic case of bad what shall we do?............leave it up to Plato me thinks.........maybe he will be kind to us and manifest a solution................

  5. I have known Jeff since I was 6 years old. We instantly became friends and stayed friends since then. In HS we never told each other about our feelings and ended up taking a different path. Now I'm 45 and I have been divorced for 8 years and moved back to Oklahoma from Florida. Jeff also divorced recently and moved back to Oklahoma from Maine. We caught back up and it was like time stood still. We finally opened up about the feelings we have had since school and how we secretly missed each other as we got older. I am happy to say we are a couple and happier than we have ever been. We consider each other our split aparts. I am truely blessed that we crossed paths again.

  6. Plato was right. This is different to lustful infatuations, or soul mate relationships. When you meet you split-part, or twin flame, it is utterly intense like nothing you have ever experienced before. It took us by absolute shock, and when we tried to research what was going on discovered 'twin flames' and that it wasn't just us and well documented. We starting trying to put down in words what it was like, to share with others what we experienced on our website

  7. That was in no way the first reference. Not even close. Plato's work is young in comparison to the earlier mentions. And the big reference in the bible is so glaring clear everyone misses it somehow. Adam and Eve are children. Start there. Peace

  8. There are no words to describe how instantaneously your entire existence makes perfect crystal clear sense and you are reborn completely anew. Every day is a miracle beyond belief and life becomes full of inconceivable gifts and magic. The truth is- your twin is God. There is none other. The one and the only. If you meet them you won't marry someone else or all that stupid shit people
    Say about someone running. That is nonsense. When you meet yourself you will know. And this is a lot of work to get to that place. How? Abandon your self. Love only for everyone else. Love others constantly with a heart so full of longing for all beings to be happy and perfectly well and content that you forget yourself and then get the shock of shocks- the end all be all- the throne of God is your very seat. May all being be liberated. May all beings meet their twin flame. We certainly will not rest until they do. We are here. All 144,000 of us. We came back for the Ascension. Peace.
