You may be right because I've noticed all these after a NDE. It also seems this current "life" of mine is duller, not as vibrant , and my senses are duller.

Thing is, if there's an alteration of timelines, then why is there slip-through of different pasts. Heard about the butterfly effect with time travel stuff... Yet this phenomena sounds like a convergence rather than divergence, so some cross-talk must be occuring from two separate paths to bring them together. So maybe something more like the sci-fi of Sliders, with some previously independent timelines collapsing into one?
Weird and crazy, but interesting to ponder about.

As for Nelson himself, well, I had the entire Ice-T OG album memorized in 1991 (except the impossible to decipher few words from Nat the Cat in "Flyby")
This is an excerpt from Ice-T's 1991 spoken word "Prepared to Die", which is my personal proof to myself that he made it out of prison
Watch me flip and rip on the freedom tip, open your minds see the point of the Ice pick...Mandela did 27 hard ones, not in a windowed room but in a barred one, while his wife had tears in her eyes, the man IS a hero, he needs a Nobel Prize. But that'll never happen so I'm gonna keep rappin'...
I remember this coming out after Mandela had been released and the anti-apartheid movement was culminating. Several of the Mandela Effects which aren't spelling error-related, I have very strong memories of.
This brings up another ME that people are now claiming, involving the inventor Eli Whitney. Many swear that they learned in school of him being a black man, but now history appears to have him down as a white man. An internet search will verify this. I don't remember either way, but what I do remember are lyrics of a KRS-1 song "You Must Learn" from the late 80's/early 90's, in which he was singing about the accomplishments of historical black figures. In fact, that was the theme of the whole song.
Here are the pertinent lyrics:
No one told you about Benjamin Banneker
A brilliant Black man that invented the almanac
Can't you see where KRS is coming at
With Eli Whitney, Haile Selassie, Grand Bill Woods
made the walky-talky
Now, why would he have included Eli Whitney in the midst of the black pioneers if Whitney was a white man? The whole point of the song was to highlight the accomplishment of historical black people. And again, people are insisting they learned that Whitney was black in school. But now there is no evidence that he was black, except for those claiming the ME.

That's a fair point and I respect it. I disagree, but I respect it
I mentioned in another thread ( of which I won't mention the fictional character's name as it apparently causes trauma to multiple people on here...) about a recollection I had of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi where, near the end when the Rebels attack the death star, I am 100% sure a bunch of their ships collided with the shield and exploded before others pulled up in safety.
Now, I have tried to find any reference of this but no luck. Now, both my brother and I remember this. BUT... i highly suspect I inadvertently convinced him he saw that happen as well. None of my friends, also Star Wars lunatics, do not recall this memory. No one I have spoken to remembers this either.
So.. based on that - to me, logically, it's me who is at fault. Even though I can almost visually play back that scene in my mind's eye, it didn't happen. It was me who got it wrong.
(please don't say you recall that memory or you WILL blow my mind! )
