The Mandela Effect

For those of you who have no knowledge of this, I will explain. The phrase was coined by a paranormal consultant, Fiona Broome, when she first became aware of the phenomenon. She discovered that she shared a specific memory with many others. It was of the death of South African activist and president Nelson Mandela, who she remembered dying in 1980 in prison, only to learn that he did not die then, but instead, died in 2013. For myself, I distinctly remember him dying in the 1980’s. I remember discussing it with my family and friends and reading it in the papers. I saw it televised.
And how about this one. Everyone has read all the fairy tales numerous times, I am sure. Which sounds right to you Mirror, Mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all? or Magic Mirror on the wall. Now I have read Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs numerous times to my daughter and it has always been Mirror, Mirror. Now they are telling me that I am not remembering correctly and if you look it up it now says Magic Mirror.
How about C-3PO in Star Wars having a silver leg? Again I don’t remember that, he was always gold. How do you remember it? And Tank Boy, I remember him being run over by tanks in the protest in China in the late 1980’s. Now it seems he lived. Yet I remember the news showing him being run over and the media fiasco that ensued. Disturbing?
Just glitches in memory, I doubt it, there are too many people involved. Parallel universes merging- the many interacting world concept, perhaps, that makes more sense. People going in infinite trajectories, therefore seeing different things, or some say it is just a simple matter of perception? People have speculated that we are in a Matrix situation, or part of a huge video game, I have trouble believing that, I feel very real. There is so much we don’t know and we are just grazing the surface when it comes to quantum mechanics.
If you haven’t been reading about this, you should. It is both fascinating, fun, and troubling. Your thoughts?

  1. Interesting! So much of my own lived experience cannot be explained by the apparent rules of see/hear/touch/cognition. There is a spiritual energy that is manifest in us and I think it’s wonderful to be able to relax into it and not get all riled up about the upsetting things in the immediate moment. It’s all made up! Thanks for sharing the Mandela story I wasn’t familiar with it!
