What is the Mandela Effect, and why is it boggling my mind?

For those of you who haven’t yet heard of the Mandela Effect, I’m now going to take the role of Morpheus from The Matrix and offer you the choice between the red pill and the blue pill, and like he did, I’ll say, “This is your last chance. After this there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”

Read on if you choose the red pill.

What is the Mandela Effect?

The Mandela Effect is this crazy phenomenon in which hundreds of thousands of people Continue reading “What is the Mandela Effect, and why is it boggling my mind?”

Did the discovery of Gobekli Tepe change everything we thought we knew about human history?

You know how we thought the world was flat and then we discovered we were wrong? And then we thought earth was the center of the universe. Wrong. And we thought that cigarettes weren’t bad for us. Wrong again. Yeah, it’s kind of like that. We thought we knew how and when civilizations began, but yet again, we were wrong. This became obvious with the discovery of the Gobekli Tepe site in modern day Turkey. (Why can’t we just admit when we don’t know something?) Continue reading “Did the discovery of Gobekli Tepe change everything we thought we knew about human history?”

Are we living in a simulation?

We’ve all seen The Matrix, The 13th Floor, Rick and Morty. We know the punchline: there is no spoon; reality is not what you had thought; you’re in a computer generated reality, baboom! Mind blown. But did you know that this ubiquitous concept familiar from science fiction pop culture has actually been a pervading theme throughout human history?

Why are there so many people claiming they’ve time traveled here from the future? Could there be something to it?

Have you noticed that lately, it seems like every time you peruse the headlines you come across a new story about someone claiming they are a time traveler from the future and they’re here in order to prevent some huge catastrophe that will result in the end of humankind?

Your first instinct tells you that this is all poppycock and these people are loonies…, but could there actually be something to their claims? With strange things going on all around us like people having conflicting memories of major past events (see What is the Mandela Effect, and why is it boggling my mind?) and CERN forging ahead with their large hadron collider, it seems like almost anything might be possible.

The world is bleaker since the Berenstein Bears disappeared: the Mandela Effect

Your brain quickly reassures you that yes, you could have been mistaking. Maybe Cup o’ Noodles has always been Cup Noodles, White Out has always been Wite Out, and Fruit Loops has always been Froot Loops. Maybe the Volvo logo has always had that weird arrow, and I don’t remember that curly q on the Ford logo either, but okay. Maybe. (If you’re unfamiliar with the Mandela Effect, see What is the Mandela Effect and why is it boggling my mind?) Although you might feel unsettled to learn that the way you’ve always seen something supposedly didn’t ever exist the way you remember it, you can and will likely brush it off as being due to your faulty memory.

Until you can’t anymore. When you crash into memories that are so strong and detailed that you know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you’re right, it becomes impossible to accept that it has always been some other way. Continue reading “The world is bleaker since the Berenstein Bears disappeared: the Mandela Effect”

Is there evidence that Bigfoot really exists?

Is there any evidence that suggests that the legend of Bigfoot is real? Since ancient times, people have been reporting sightings and stories of ape-like, half man, half ape creatures that live in remote forests, however there continues to be no agreed upon scientific evidence to conclude their existence. What evidence do we have that Bigfoot might be a real creature? Continue reading “Is there evidence that Bigfoot really exists?”

What’s up with the huge stone spheres discovered in Costa Rica?

So far, around 300 stone spheres of varying size have been found in southern Costa Rica in the Disquis Delta, some weighing as much as 16 tons. Excavations began in 2005 at the site called “Finca 6”.  Dating them is difficult, but they are credited to a culture who lived in the area around the year 600 to 1,000 AD whose culture disappeared after the Spanish conquest in the 16th century. Most are made of gabbro, an igneous rock, while some are made from limestone and some from sandstone.

It is unknown for certain how the spheres could have been made with such precision.  Continue reading “What’s up with the huge stone spheres discovered in Costa Rica?”

Did Semir Osmanagic really discover a pyramid in Bosnia that will change the way we see human history? And is it being denied and covered up in mainstream news?

When I was beginning my research on pyramids, I wanted to get a feel for how many pyramids existed across all of the continents (easier said than done). When looking into pyramids in Europe, I discovered that pyramids had not begun to be discovered there until about a decade ago, and even then, their existence in Europe are heatedly debated. One such example of a heated is-it-a-pyramid-or-not debate regards a pyramid (or not) in Bosnia, called the Pyramid of the Sun by its discoverer, Semir Osmangic. When I googled about this, the results at first glance were so conclusively anti-pyramid that I almost didn’t keep looking. Continue reading “Did Semir Osmanagic really discover a pyramid in Bosnia that will change the way we see human history? And is it being denied and covered up in mainstream news?”

Why do so many ancient cultures around the world have records of giants?

Did giants really exist? Although most would probably scoff at the question, there appears to be a lot of compelling evidence that, yes, giants may have really existed. Not only do accounts of these giants show up in our ancient records and artifacts, but also physical evidence of giant remains have perhaps been found around the world including fossilized footprints and bones.

Giants were present in virtually every ancient culture’s mythologies. Continue reading “Why do so many ancient cultures around the world have records of giants?”

Has physical evidence of giants been discovered all around the world?

Did giants really exist? Many would probably scoff at the question, however there appears to be a lot of compelling evidence that, yes, giants may have really existed.

First of all, although easy for some to discount, giants have made an appearance in virtually every culture around the world. Continue reading “Has physical evidence of giants been discovered all around the world?”

When were the world’s pyramids constructed?

Pyramid building is a behavior which is thought to have developed on different continents by different cultures independently of one another. So then, in what order were the world’s pyramids constructed? Was pyramid building by different cultures across the world happening at around the same time? Where were the first pyramids built? Africa? Mesoamerica?

Dating methods of these pyramidal structures are imperfect and there is often disagreement among experts, and plenty of known pyramidal structures have yet to be studied. Creating a list of the pyramids in chronological order of their dates of construction is a difficult task which will yield imperfect results, but
