My name is Mathew Homberger, an identical twin born in Melbourne Australia of German descent, the one on the right in the photo below. I studied at the University of Melbourne taking Anthropology and Philosophy as my majors. Afterwards a post graduate diploma in Information Technology at RMIT. I have worked and lived in several countries. I now live with my wife in Singapore, she helps me no end. I have travelled quite extensively, my passport says 56 countries. I was in Thailand on Kho Chang when I had a motorcycle accident. I believe that I am the same person despite coma although I suspect the world changed very much while I was out. Thank you kindly for reading my story.
And I thought I could only speak German when I first became conscious. I did live there for a while and have visited many times. My memory was greatly effected. I now write and speak English and only know a little German, mein deutsch geht noch nicht. This website has been written over several years, there are many posts that explore and described my condition. It seems that very slowly I am recovering from this ordeal. If you are recovering from coma or know someone that is I hope these ideas can help. It seems to take the brain a very long time to approach normality again. What is normal? I have always worked on my normalisation.
