Tandem Evolution versus Tandem Monad

[Excerpt from TT: 2002-05-23]

[mdfsage_val] What is the difference between a tandem evolution & a tandem monad, thank you.

[M_Entity] A Tandem Monad is a general non-binding, but strongly devoted, sharing of life experiences and major turning points in a life, whether the fragments are in contact with each other, or not. The Tandem Monad is not dependent on physical contact, but more of an Essence-based parallel of experiences gained by the Personalities of those in the Monad.

The Tandem Monad will have these major experiences and major shifts, along with strikingly uncanny similarities in lifestyles and choices, all seemingly parallel between the fragments.

We use Tandem Evolution to refer to fragments who have decided as Personalities to pursue similar paths of experience and to actively share in that progress, allowing each other to act as support, security, feedback, insight, etc.
