The Mandela Effect

The Mandela Effect is a theory of parallel universes, based in the idea that because large groups of people have similar alternative memories about past events. It is so named because many people have memories of Nelson Mandela dying much earlier than recorded.

There are those out there that may scoff at this phenomenon, but to me it is very real. I have many memories of product logos, movie scenes, TV show titles and quotes that are not now correct.

Like anything I try to take things with a grain of salt, I try to look at things from a logical standpoint and use common sense. This effect on me however doesn’t fall into the realm of the explainable.

I will admit while researching this effect on the internet that the memories that some people have do not resonate with me, however there are many that do and a few that have convinced me that something very peculiar is happening.

I remember without a doubt that there used to be a series of books about The Berenstein Bears. They no longer exist, they are now The Berenstain Bears.

I remember a Coca-Cola logo with a wavy hyphen, it never existed apparently.

I remember in Snow White the witch spoke into the mirror saying “Mirror Mirror on the wall”, evidently she never said that.

I remember C3PO in Star Wars being all gold, now if you watch the movie he has one silver leg.

I also recall Darth Vader saying “Luke, I am your father”, which now he does not say.

The one that has really convinced me is the movie Moonraker in the James Bond series. The scene where the girl Dolly with pigtails, glasses and braces smiles at Jaws and upon seeing her braces, jaws smiles back and having the metal in the mouth in common they skip off together. Now Dolly has no braces and the scene makes no sense. The funny thing about this one is, you can look up information on the movie or the character lists for James Bond movies and find pictures of Dolly smiling next to her description and the picture shows no braces but the descriptions say she has them. 

This is what some are calling residual evidence. These web pages and articles are also before the Hadron Collider was turned on to smash together certain particles.

More residual evidence can be seen with the TV show Sex in the City as I remember it is now Sex and the City, but recordings of awards shows can be seen using Sex in the City as the title. You can also find interviews with James Earl Jones repeating the famous Luke i am your father line, even though it isn’t correct any longer.

I am not sure if others have this memory that I have but, I remember R. Lee Ermey dying although he is evidently still alive.

Another bizarre effect is the world map. When I look at it now it is much different from what I always remember. Australia is now much closer to the other continents, Greenland is much larger and South America has moved to one side. I am not the only one who sees these things.

Some people have reported their families have changed. They no longer have children they had, they have siblings they never had or the reverse, they are missing siblings. Those things are hard to grasp.

I watched an interview with a young physicist and he believes that when the Hadron Collider fired up and changed the weight of an electron that our universe was destroyed thus moving us to the universe adjacent to ours. It seems far fetched and like something out of the Twilight Zone, but something is happening, of that I am sure.
