Is This Real Life? Is This Just Fantasy?

The Mandela Effect is what happens when someone has a clear memory of something that never happened in this reality. It was brought to light by a woman named Fiona Broome following Nelson Mandela’s death. This is due to differences in people’s memories of how Nelson Mandela died. He is remembered to have died in prison long before his death in 2013, and it caused a bit of an uproar.
The Mandela Effect can be very confusing, scary, and even surreal to most people the first time they hear about it. It is a real theory, and it has reasonable explanations. The way the Mandela Effect works is that masses of people will remember the exact same events in the exact same way without hesitating, but once investigated further, it is very different than what was initially thought. This is not a case of severe Déjà vu, but a legitimate conspiracy.
It is believed that the Mandela Effect takes place because of alternate dimensions colliding or being altered and affecting dimensions around it in even the slightest ways that may seem otherwise insignificant. The reason alternate dimensions could be colliding is because of the other theory that there are infinite parallel universes, in which everything imaginable is possible in each different dimension. On a discussion board from mandelaeffect.com, a user named David theorized that, “Someone is changing the past for financial gain/ or altering the past and causing rifts in other areas by happenstance.” Examples of ways this would be used are listed below. Read them no matter how skeptical you may be. Remember that all of the Mandela Effect conspiracies come from people’s memories that they are extremely confident in.
Many people remember “The Berenstein Bears” as opposed to this dimension’s “The Berenstain Bears.”
The shoe company spelled as, “Sketchers” instead of this dimension’s “Skechers.”
“Mirror Mirror on the wall” as opposed to this dimension’s “Magic Mirror on the wall.”
“Luke, I am your father.” is remembered as opposed to this dimension’s “No, I am your father.”
Billy Graham’s TV broadcasted funeral, though he is still alive as of September 2016.
The color of Chartreuse is remembered as a red-pink to many people. It is actually a yellow-green in this dimension.
Curious George is remembered having a tail, though he has no tail in this dimension.
The location of Japan in relation to China.
Osama bin Laden’s death reported in 2001 to some people’s memories.
Multiple other incidents can be read with very simple studying.
The Mandela Effect is kind of one of those things you just have to hold faith in. There isn’t any hard evidence or scientific proof. It just exists. You get to dictate if you do or don’t want to believe that, but if you don’t trust your own gut instinct, whose do you trust?
