I'm to exhausted right now to type a lengthy reply -- but is this "Mandela Effect" a real thing?
Sort of. Not in the simplistic way it has been presented.
The realities in which we all exist in are not unlike sitting in a sandbox. We all have more or less exact sandboxes with exactly the same toy
shovels, buckets and toys. Each of us, however, has a private copy of the universe. Because we all use the same types of tools to shape the sand, our
realities (more or less) match up most of the time.
Dimensional jumping is possible, but it's not as fancy or esoteric as it sounds. Our consciousness exists in a quantum state, but our functional
awareness is locked onto only a small, insignificant part of the infinite. It is sort of like tuning into a specific reality frequency. All the other
infinite realities are all being broadcast at once, yet you and I are only attuned to the frequency specific to you and I.
When you are able to direct your subconscious to another, nearby "frequency" you can shift your functional awareness to another "dimension" (for lack
of a better word). You might notice small differences like the numbers on your mail box are black instead of bronze. Perhaps a neighbors dog you swore
got run over is now alive. Usually, its small things.
Normally we don't and can't do this intentionally to ourselves. Usually shifts like this happen only when we have undergone extreme stress, and our
minds react out of some kind of bizarre defensive mechanism, trying to move our awareness to a safer place. Perhaps after a near death experience you
notice that a shirt you owned is purple instead of red. You could have sworn it was purple...
Because of the infinite nature of reality, shifts are generally tiny and nearly imperceptible. There's simply just way, WAY to many near-identical
co-existing, concurrent realities ongoing right now that we can't and won't notice. Perhaps only a few electrons on Pluto have changed for
example...you'd never notice that!
People have been trying to intentionally "dimensionally jump" for a long, long time. Most don't call it that though. You can find bits and pieces of
it scattered around in Hermetic texts, The Master Key System or the new-age "Law of Attraction" stuff. That's what making your will and intent become
reality is after all -- jumping to a "dimension" in which your desires are manifest.
And in a way we are dimensionally jumping moment from moment anyway, but so quickly and smoothly we don't even notice it. True spiritual "gurus" and
masters through time have been thought to be able to notice this, direct their flow through reality and see potential possible outcomes.
Now, as to widespread changes being noticed? I think that this stuff is sort of like a viral meme that has infected the collective unconscious,
altering our realities to all align with what this new altered pattern is all about. And as more people swear up and down things have changed, the
more people will believe it -- and the more "real" it will become to even more people.
EDIT: I use terms like "frequency" for lack of a better descriptor. All I have to offer is analogies to things more understandable. So, don't think
I'm trying to use actual scientific terms to explain things. All I know is what I have personally experienced, witnessed and experimented/played
around with in my own life.
