The problem is always going to be - the people who aren't experiencing it, don't get it. They won't. Because for them nothing is different. They can't
understand the fact that some of us throughly remember certain things happening (with mental pictures, sound, emotions, etc.) a "different" way.
I think it's the "Mandela Effect" name that makes some people dismiss it because it does make it sound like some weird theory. When, in reality (no
pun intended), a lot of us don't have a real working theory for why these "wrong memories" are happening. Let's say it is just bad memory (in
technicolor)... That doesn't discount (at least for many) that it's happening - and SO many remember the exact same wrong way on so many things. Of
course, we can say the Internet makes it easy for all us 'weirdos' to talk together so it seems more common. Or - for whatever reason it is happening
- it is.
What I don't get is why here - on ATS - people can talk about some crazy stuff and it doesn't get near the abuse from the 'non-experiencers' as ME. In
most cases, if people don't believe something or think it ridiculous, they chuckle & guffaw to themselves and move along. ME flat-out pisses the
non-experiencers off and they need to make sure we know about it. To me, that's interesting in and of itself.
A theory I did hear about why it's all pop culture references is that if it is timeline manipulation, those things 'changing' (for some) are so
well-known that they could serve as 'markers.'
On another personal note - the one that throws me a lot is Sally Fields' (yes, I remember her as FieldS) award-acceptance speech where (I remember)
she says, "You like me... you REAAALLLLLYYYY like me!" Someone put together a video compilation of over 30-50 other imitations of other
celebrities/shows/news personalities/speeches etc. repeating that line the exact same way - same intonation, expression, voice dynamics etc. as I
remember her saying the line. So ALLLL those people got it wrong - the same way - from what the recordings SHOW her saying, which was, "You like me.
Right now, you like me." Hmmmm.....
On one more note - watched a video where a guy went through Google Trends and looked at searches for both version of common "MEs" since 2004. For
many, there were MORE searches for the "wrong" version over the last 13 years (but also in spikes uniformly at 2003-4, 2007-8, 2011-12, 2015-16) than
for the "right" one. AND - the spikes also came uniformly at 4 year intervals. Very odd if there is "nothing" to it.
P.S. Check out the Google Trends comparing "you like me you really like me" ("our" version) to "you like me right now you like me" (existing version)
from 2004 to present...
