They probably are very fear based. Perhaps they're so afraid of what we have to say that they feel the need to write it off. They do not engage us and participate in the discussion because they fear getting sucked into the concept of reality changing, thus making them crazy. Strange that it never occurs to them to just read another forum topic
I could go for a detective's cloak and a black face mask, I suppose. Guess I'll have to start smoking cigarettes to really look the part. We'll have to start having secret meetings, and we'll need a world map of course, and a long table. I'll work on my evil laugh. And someone will have to shave their head. There's always a bad baldy
Pretty funny idea actually that they might wake up and find themselves on the opposite side. Probably their worst nightmare.

Your post has me wondering how many children out there who are diagnosed with autism or other previously rare disorders, are actually just so overwhelmed by stimuli that they cannot show us what's really going on inside their heads.
They could simply be the next step in human evolution and because we don't understand that, and thus fear it, we put them in a box. It happened to me, and I don't belong anywhere on the autism "spectrum". I'm just a person who has a problem forgetting everything that other people can dismiss with ease, so I have to limit my external stimuli.
Spelling of Dilemma There seems to be some controversy about the spelling, many people around the world use "Dilemna" instead, and the reason seems quite unknown. I refer you to here: northernplanets.blogspot.com... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:45, 29 July 2011 (UTC) The answer is obvious; "Dilemna" is Imperial, "Dilemma" is Metric. But seriously, folks, I never came across "dilemma" until a few moments ago when google docs tried to correct my spelling.Paganize (talk) 06:15, 11 November 2011 (UTC) I blame my backwater school system. I used "dilemna" for a long time, and people couldn't understand why. I'm pretty sure dilemma is the most accepted spelling. Mizusajt (talk) 19:51, 24 July 2012 (UTC) Well if millions use dilemna, than it is a valid word. It shouldn't really matter if the word came about through mistakes, it is now a word. This is how language changes. A majority of people accepting usage of a word changes the language as a whole. Otherwise it's slang. This website, , did a google calculation of usage, 1st comment is by the author in May 2014, so I'll go by that date for his search. He found 3 million uses of "dilemma" and 300,000 uses of "dilmena". He is also selling T-shirts for accepting "dilemna", but concedes that "dilemma" is the correct spelling. A few websites:    20 pages of forum debate, with a few links in there:  -22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:41, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

I've been looking into this extensively for the past few days. I remember berenstEin, however I would easily believe a bunch of people remember the spelling wrong (including the writers of the show 'the office')
What I would like to talk about my friends... Is Eli Whitney. The inventor of the cotton gin.
I am positive I was taught in my childhood he was an African American who bought his freedom or some such after his invention. Many, many people remember being taught this.
If this was just plain misinformation, the schools taught us wrong, then WHY can I find NO hard evidence? No photos of school tests, textbook images, or otherwise misleading poor American children into falsely learning he was black.
On top of that, there is a song. 'You must learn' by Boogie Down Productions, made in the 80's or so. It mentions several BLACK prominent members of history, ELI WHITNEY being listed as the first one.
Combine this with his new appearance in the Freemason organization and BLOOD RELATIONSHIP with The Rockefeller's....
This is some #.
Wait what? Eli Whitney was white? STFU -- I was tuaght he bought his freedom with the invention of the cotton gin.

I know exactly how this got started. I went to public school in the 80’s and 90’s. This misinformation was printed in school textbooks by publishers who get various unknown and uneducated people to write the text and edit the whole thing together, then they pay some other unknown person to put their name on the book because they DO have a degree in something. Then they distribute the books to the schools, and most of the teachers just follow that curriculum. Public education is a joke, just like public welfare and every other service the government attempts to provide.

If anyone can get a hold of History Textbooks written around 1940’s or earlier. You would see that Eli Whitney and the Wright Brothers were considered Black. It was taught in Black Segregated schools. My elders remember learning Eli Whitney and The Wright Brothers were both Black. They were related to at least one black person. It was part of the 1% black rule created by Jim Crow and his racist laws. One time in our history, Whites hated the color of dark skin that they considered 1 drop be a black. DNA of Y-DNA shows the Wright Brothers have E1B1 or African DNA. Later, White people unaware or who didn’t care about the Jim Crow laws, wanted to claim the Wright Brothers and Eli Whitney to add to their White History, which took away from Black History. This is why the fight is carried on today. One day, maybe we will just have an American History and Black and White won’t be an issue.

everyone else remembered it to either north west or north east. this is closest one (as my memory is), just a little smaller and slightly more south, used to watch that on maps and thinking how many good film has been shot there. it all started with new zealand for me, atm i have countless experiences going on.
I realize that you're attempting to talk around any of these issues rather than actually trying to communicate with other members here directly, and I respect that. I'd just like to say this to you, again, in the spirit of trying to communicate.
Neither you nor any other member "owns" the topic of "The Mandela Effect." You have your understanding (which I don't see you talking about as you seem to be obsessed with what other members think and say)
There is nothing about any of this that "frightens" me or, I'm guessing, anyone else here. As far as what are to me fantastic explanations for the phenomena (time-travel, dimensional shifts, divine intervention, et. al.)
Every attempt to "engage" you and several other members here who are believers in the fanstastic explanations ends in conflict.
You say that you feel attacked ... merely because I or another member tells you what our examination of this phenomenon has shown us.
We have, in turn, been called shills, trolls and disinfo agents. With all respect, is that your idea of "engaging" someone on the topic?
My position is that every one of the anomalies presented in the "Mandela Effect" CAN BE EXPLAINED by problems with human memory, perception, cognition which is exacerbated by internet communication methods.
I have asked you previously how that accounts for so many people with the same, vivid memories, of the same exact alternative.
aside from wondering at the dramatic reactions on the part of some folks here who consider themselves part of a "in" group or clique which has to be defended against anyone with a different idea.
Best regards, I look forward to productive discussion on "the Mandela Effect" in the future.
I am open to the possibility of having an honest, real conversation if you are finally interested

it was just a similar story about parellel universes
the 1st time i read it , the author put more emphasis on the broken bone
and how his brother and rest of the family had no recollection of it
they remembered the falling from the tree , but no broken bone and hospital visit
i will try to find it again
