A 40-year-old member asked:
are conjoined twins attached at the head considered one person?

Good one - no.: Although your question has metaphysical attributes, i would say that clearly cephalopagus conjoined twins are two genetically identical individuals fused at the head, but having separate brain anatomy and psyche.
