We could do a simple experiment about what HFTA does - I tried it on my copy, but it's missing some .ocx (ancient version of HFTA from 20th edition) and trying to run it on Win10 under Parallels, which is sort of a "non optimal" environment.

That is, choose a pair of dipoles (for which it's easy to calculate the pattern) and flat terrain, and pick some different stacking distances to see what happens.

say I put a dipole at 50 feet and 70 feet.  Run the vertical pattern. Then run one by itself and the other by itself. The "dual" antenna configuration should have more lobes (because the spacing is 20 feet)
