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.

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.

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?”
If you haven’t heard, the Mandela Effect is rather remarkable and disturbing moreso. The phrase was coined around 2010 by Fiona Broome after learning that Nelson Mandela was still alive even though she remembered his death in jail in the 80s. It wouldn’t have been anything to speak of if Broome hadn’t discovered that thousands of other people remembered Nelson Mandela’s death in vivid detail as well, and they remembered the speech given by his wife, the riots in the streets, the funeral. Strange.
It didn’t take long for Broome and hundreds of thousands of people to identify other occurrences in which masses of people share in these “false memories.” Hundreds of logos, company names, actors’ names, famous lines in movies, verses from the Bible, movie titles, titles of television shows, have all changed, and there is no record of it ever being the way so many people remember.

The Mandela Effect is this incredible phenomenon in which hundreds of thousands of people remember something being some certain way, but now the records state that it has always been some other way. If this is new to you, read about it here: What is the Mandela Effect, and why is it boggling my mind? This phenomenon extends to famous movie lines, famous names, Hitler’s eye color, the Mona Lisa, names of television shows and movies, logos, names of companies and products, and political events like Nelson Mandela’s death (for which the effect was named), how many people were in the car during the JFK assassination, and Tank Man during the Tiananmen Square Protests of 1989 in Beijing (now he was supposedly never run over by the tank even though so many people remember it otherwise).
