I am writing this post because of a picture I ran across – and I checked out some of the facts. In case you’re not aware of what the “Mandela Effect” is, I’m going to briefly go over that. People are noticing lots of things these days that are different – not the way they remember, and I wanted to bring some of those to your attention.
The newest research in Quantum Physics theorizes that there are many (perhaps infinite) multiple universes out there. Is it possible that we can actually “move” from one to another – collectively or individually? I think it’s possible. This could be the explanation of how the Mandela Effect works.
“The Mandela Effect” is a term coined to describe the phenomenon of large numbers of people remembering something one way, and others remembering it another way. The theory is that both groups of people are correct, but one group came from one timeline or reality and another group came from another timeline or reality. Based upon current Quantum Mechanics theories, this could definitely be the case. It was called “The Mandela Effect” thanks to the lovely Fiona Broome, who took notice when Nelsen Mandela seemed to pass away over and over again. Her memory of his previous passing was echoed by a whole lot more people’s memories, too, of the same. This term can also be used to describe alternate histories such as earth geography differences, movie releases, and recent historical events.
Now, here is the picture I came across. See what you think:
In every case in the above image, I remembered it the first way. I remember exactly the day that I noticed that the show “Sex in the City”‘s name changed. But apparently, it was always called “Sex and the City”. Since when? And I know without a doubt that the interview was with “A” vampire and not “The” vampire.
Could it be in some of these cases that it’s just a problem with our collective memory? I wondered that. I also wondered if this image was accurate. So I checked out some of the lines.
In the movie, “Field of Dreams”, the line was “If you build it, they will come”. Now it is “If you build it, he will come”. It really is! Check out the clip:
I remember saying this line over and over again – and it always included the word they. So I scrolled down under the video clip and read the comments. Seriously, almost all comments are about this very subject! There are a few people who remember it the way it is now. But most people commented about it being ‘they‘.
The next one I checked out was the Forrest Gump line, “Life was/is like a box of chocolates”. Sure enough – the word is “was”. Here’s that clip (the audio is kind of low here and I had to turn up my volume a bit):
Once again, the comments under the video clip suggest that most people are astonished that the word is wrong.
What do you think about the Mandela Effect and the image? And what do you think it all means?
