Mandela Effect

Sorry if there's already been a thread about this.
A normally skeptical friend of mine is the one who introduced me to the Mandela Effect theory, asking me if I believed in alternate realities.

The Mandela Effect is a strange phenomenon where masses of people notice a change in reality.

My friend is a movie buff and claims certain things about movies have changed, even on his old VHS tapes where the videos have been untouched and couldn't have been manipulated or changed with new editions. Even old die hard star wars fans remember it being, "Luke, I am your father", but that's not what the line is anymore. Even I remember it being that way, but when I was watching star wars recently, it was completely different and I had a really weird feeling while watching it. Also, in Forest Gump, it was always "Life IS like a box of chocolates" and now it's not. There's a lot of well known changes. I also remember it being spelled Berenstien Bears but somehow, it's now Berenstain bears. I remember sitting in a doctors office and saw a book and thought to myself how weird it was that they changed the name, but apparently there is no proof or evidence that they did change it, and even the old books are spelled "Berenstain" now. I rememember clearly it was spelled Berenstien, because at the time I was a kid and had a tough time spelling it, so I had to spend a lot of time memorizing it.

Anyway, I started researching more about the Mandela effect, and apparently there are groups of people who notice all sorts of reality changes, even geographical changes, in songs, in all sorts of things.
What do you think about it all?

Hey there I'm pretty certain there's at least one thread on this topic of not more. Try the time travel section. I remember Nelson Mandela dying and Winnie was a widow. The other stuff as well. Many do...you are most certainly not alone!

peace & blessings,

The Mandela effect you're speaking about is most likely a psyop...movies, commercials, books, etc. can change their material and not inform the public.
The same goes for maps, imo. It does make for an interesting discussion; people have a way of remembering events very differently, this has been proven over time. Five people witnessing an event do not observe the same thing.

There is an element of the Mandela effect that is reality for some folks, but that falls under real fringe subjects, that is where a timeline or dimension that is quite like our own merges with this one for seconds or minutes.

It's a permanent merging or transformation of timelines. And it continues. A minority can recall events existing or occurring differently to now. Nelson Mandela was dead for quite some time. Here Winnie is still on her own but now she is divorced.

It's not a fringe aspect but rather a fundamental aspect of reality which may only be apparent to those who have "moved" across timelines. It seems when timelines merge that an "update" occurs to overlay the chosen timelines's reality onto the other one.

However this seems less than effective for many of us and the overlay doesn't take. As other mergings occur going forward, many or at least some of those from the alternate timelines often seem resistant to the overlay. In fact, it comes to a point where you begin to become aware of the mergings as they are occurring.

Peace and blessings,
7L

I didn't think about it until I heard it. That's really strange.

I remember reading about the Mandela Effect a few years ago. I also remember thinking that it could explain a lot of the disillusionment that many South Africans (me included) feel about Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela is definitely no hero to me. He is the opposite. I've always felt a particular repulsion towards the woman he married when he got out of prison too. Someone who for me clearly radiates pure evil.

Interesting theory. Does this mean that both worlds exist at the same time?

Yes...I definitely think it may explain it...And your take is very interesting, because you were much closer to the event and its "reversal".

Most of the rarified theoreticians point to the Hadron particle supercollider (not the official name, just describing) research which has been ongoing, and they have always said that the work could theoretically (and actually) result in the collapse of our original universe...leaving our consciousness energy to merge into the nearest and most similar alternative universe....but which still contains some small amount of difference or non-overlap. As energy cannot be destroyed but only moved or transformed. Because it would be momentary or instantaneous, we cannot know for certain by any conventional means whether or not we are no longer in the place we started, but rather in one that seems nearly but not quite indentical. The most fascinating thing is that something like the supercollider can fundamentally impact everything and everyone in our universe all at once...and that's why we shifted all together, rather than just one person here or there doing their own thing.

Because we walked in to ourselves, there was no real (or relatively little) issue with syncronisation...which as Bartholomew says is by far the biggest issue.

In common parlance, this has been colloquially termed the Mandela effect. But I think there is much, much more to it. Now that we have walked in, so many of us...what does it mean? We're still us, but with another level of awareness and awakening. And BTW...over the last 15 to 20 but especially over the last 5 to 10 years...I have been able to come to terms with some very problematic past lives too, where I was repeatedly murdered and betrayed (as a man) by those I loved most, as well as coming to a sad end in an oppressive last lifetime as a woman where I was unable to make the most basic choices about my life -- all really fairly typical stuff actually. But still quite painful to me or to any of us. Forgiveness was the easier part...understanding was the more difficult, and also coping with the reality of knowing, which has its own weight.

A lot of the healing involves perspective and knowledge and understanding the situation from the vantage of those others who did me in. And I strongly feel that much of the wave of awakening, rising consciousness, and past life healing and integration is tied to the timeline "shift" or shifts that have been ongoing since at least 2008. When we were (many, many of us) given a boost in awakening by walking in and finding ourselves with a new awareness at hand...in essence, in breadth, in depth...just different to before in some foundational way.

Any thoughts on this?


Another related threat of late...where I posted similar but more on the likely unintentional but potentially tremendous impact of the "Mandela effect" on raising consciousness and on awakening.

I thought it was an interesting concept but as I looked into it alittle more about a year ago it seemed to lack evidence and was based on a lack of understanding human memory. Memory is extremely unreliable, yet the brain is very powerful and can make things be true that it wants to be true.

This happens all the the time, especially in 'conspiracy' or spiritual world. It's a distraction from difficult things the brain doesn't want to deal with. But if there's some new evidence of madella effect that's more convincing I'd be interested in looking at it.
