Woman worried her boyfriend is ‘factory made’ after spotting weird detail inside his eye

Woman worried her boyfriend is ‘factory made’ after spotting weird detail inside his eye

She had people telling her he was a clone

When you choose to be in a relationship with someone, you expect to know everything about them... but what if you noticed one day they were potentially a clone?

Okay, it sounds crazy, but one woman has had that exact situation unfold in front of her eyes when seeing a little detail in one of their boyfriend’s features.

If finding out your partner had an entire secret family is probably the worst thing you can discover, but luckily this one thing isn’t that.

Instead of finding out her boyfriend is faking a family, he could be faking his existence. You read that right.

When a worried user took to Reddit’s /weird subreddit to share an image of her boyfriend’s eye, nobody could image what they were about to see.

Eye colours are different in every person's eye, and even if you belong to the same colour group, your shades are probably not the same at someone else’s.

That also goes for the patterns you can see in your iris (the coloured circle around the pupil).

Some people have cloudy patterns, icy shards and straight lines, but what about numbers?

When the Redditor posted the image online, she circled in red a telling number inside of his iris: the number six.

Now, I’m no scientist but how do iris’s form numbers so clearly?

She wrote: “My Bf’s left eye has a six in it.”

She wasn’t the only person to notice it and soon droves of people flooded to the comments with wild theories that he was made in a factory or is some sort of ‘updated’ humanoid.

One person wrote: “Model serial number," as another penned: “That's not your bf that is the 6th clone replacement.”

Someone else commented: “I f*cking hate it when they say they are the original and you find out they are really a 6th edition. Men are such f*cking liars.”

But even through the panic, some were able to notice that they can also see the number three in his eye, as well as a sideways number five in the top left corner.

So…what the hell does this weird feature mean?

Nothing.

According to Ancestry.com, your pupils and iris’ are entirely genetic, which means that he wasn’t created in some factory after all.

The website states: “Genes seem to play the only role in how your pupil and iris look. This makes them a phenotype, a visible DNA trait. More specifically, your genetics determine what type of iris patterns you have. About 2,000 genes are involved in the development of your iris, and around 50 affect your iris patterns.”

That’s a lot of genes to create such a specific pattern.

Another Reddit post asked the question about what the shapes in iris’s are and someone commented a great explanation: “The little 'tunnels' are called crypts of Fuchs and the innermost part of the iris is called the collarette. The patterns are unique to each person!

"The color of your eye is determined by the amount of melanin within the melanocytes in your iris. More melanin = darker eyes! Source: am an optometry student.”

So, there you go. He’s not a robot or anything, just a human.
