Have you ever felt like something from the past happened differently than you remember it? Chances are, you are suffering from the Mandela Effect.
Now, everyone knows the limits of human memory, and as time goes on, our memory of events fades. That’s human, right? What happens when thousands, even millions remember an event or something from pop culture that never happened? A lot of people seem to think mass hysteria might be the answer, the only problem is, most of the people suffering from this are normal people, with no history of mental illness(as far as I know).
For instance, I for one know I have seen a movie called Shazam in the 90’s that starred Sinbad, and a lot of people agree with me. Apparently, it never happened. Even Sinbad himself says that he never starred in the film. So why do hundreds of thousands of people believe he did?
Well, there are many theories. One being that the world did end in 2012 and we’re living in the aftermath. Another theory states that time travelers are potentially coming back in time, and altering history to change the future. One suggests that we’re living in an alternate universe, and another seems to believe that reality as a whole is a simulation. Like we’re living in the matrix. Some even state that CERN destroyed our reality.
The problem with the Mandela Effect is, that no matter how much you search on the internet to find proof of things happening the way you remember them, it will always show you that you’re wrong, because reality has literally changed. All relics from the way you remembered things erased from history, like they never happened. So, if you’re sitting in a room with a hundred people that all agree they’ve watched the Shazam movie, and can describe the plot in detail, none of it matters, because it’s been scrubbed from our reality.
For instance, Shazam is said to have been made in 1994, which is interesting. Before looking up when the Shazam movie was supposedly made, I told someone that I remember the commercial for it while watching the VHS of “Blank Check.” Turns out, that movie was also released in 1994.
Then, we have people like James Earl Jones, who played Darth Vader, remembering his line where he said, “Luke, I am your father,” and yet, that phrase is never said in the movie.
It gets even creepier. Remember how many people were riding in the car when JFK was assassinated? We have all seen the footage. If you said “four,” you’re wrong. It’s now six.
Remember Mandela dying in 1991? Well, it didn’t happen. Even though people around the world remember watching his funeral on tv.
Some say that they watch the tank man die on national TV. Never happened.
Remember a land mass to the west of Australia? Apparently a lot of people do, and there is even video evidence of this.
Remember Hitler having brown eyes, and everyone calling him a hypocrite for being a brown eyed, brown haired man? Well, now his eyes are blue.
Remember Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum? What do they have on their hats? Flags? Propellers? Nothing?
If you said “propellers,” well, you’re wrong.
I could go on all day long, but you should really look into this, just to see how many things in history you’re suddenly wrong about. Have you seen any so far that puzzle you? Anything creep you out about this? Leave a comment below and tell me about it.
How can so many people be wrong over things that are so small and trivial?
