Looking for instances, whether fictional, religious or otherwise, of the idea of the "double".

Some examples might be the Tibetan idea of tulpas or Castaneda's of the dream body, or even popular entertainment representations like the Matrix. Accounts of people actually experiencing these sorts of phenomena, whether in a spirtual or psychiatric context, would be particularly welcome. Any format really, aside from journals without open-access. Thanks!
