This was originally going to be a post, but as is often the case, I get carried away and end up writing a novel. Yes I realize this topic may seem
pretty dumb to a lot of people, but this is the skunk works it's fun to think about crazy theories some times. Recently, I realized that I seem to
remember things the same way many other people who experience the Mandela Effect claim to remember things, so I've been doing a bit of research on the
Mandela Effect over the last few days. Only a week ago I would have laughed at the theory but I'm starting to think there may be something to it,
which is hard for me to say, it puts into question my sanity and the basis of my entire reality.
Many of you will know I'm a fairly skeptical and scientific person, I don't believe in religion or ghosts or things like that. But when so many people
seem to think a certain thing in history has mysteriously changed, and then I also agree with them on a consistent basis, I have to ask why we all
remember it to be the same thing. There's a couple of big ones, like 6 people in the car with JFK instead of 4, I mean I'm not exactly new to
conspiracy theories, I shouldn't be misremembering one of the most important moments in the realm of conspiracy theories. I remember reading theories
about how it could have been the driver, but now that's not even really possible because of the people between them.
I was some what willing to chock those things up to faulty memory, I haven't researched JFK in some time, but I just came across an example which
absolutely blew my socks off more than any other I've seen so far. Ask yourself, where is our solar system located in the galaxy? If you answered some
where on the outer edges you would be wrong, according to science it's near the middle, right between the edge and center! Now the reason I find this
so astonishing is because I know quite a bit when it comes to cosmology, the majority of my threads are on the topic of cosmology and physics. I know
enough that I've been able to work on developing my own theories related to negative energy and negative mass.
I've watched at least several hundred science documentaries over my years of browsing YouTube, and I've seen the location of the solar system
described in at least a dozen of them. Do an image search for the location of the solar system in the galaxy and you will see it's depicted as being
near the center most of the time. There are some images showing it closer to the edge but they are harder to find, and the one example I found was on
a Reddit thread
from two months ago where
they were discussing the Mandela Effect and how the location of the solar system has changed. It's not just that though, I clearly remember the
location being on the edge of the Sagittarius arm, now we're in the Orion Spur?!?
Even in docos made just a few years ago I remember jokes made about how Earth is out in the boondocks. Now one might reason that science changes and
evolves, and old data gets replaced with more correct data, but there are two reasons I cannot accept such an explanation. First, we named the arm of
the galaxy we are in, it's not something that changes with new information, our distance from the center should simply change with more accurate data.
Second, I like to think I keep rather up to date on the latest scientific revelations, at no point did I realize there had been a major shift in our
location within the galaxy, it was not announced or discussed by news outlets.
Doesn't it seem a bit strange that this topic seemed to be a non-issue until a few months ago when people starting talking about it on Reddit? With
every example of the Mandela Effect I've seen so far, the history behind the thing in question seems some how murky or obscured, and I find it
astonishing there isn't any clear explanation for how some of these misconceptions come about. It's like we just accept the misconception but ignore
the fact it seems to have no rational origin. And in most cases there is some sort of residual evidence left from how it used to be, most things seem
to get changed so that the time line isn't full of paradoxes, old pictures and video will be changed.
But then you'll get something which is like a remnant left over from another time. The lady in this
came across some old collectible record booklets, and she happens to have one for Snow White and also one for Star Wars. In those old
booklets, the words spoken by the evil queen are "Mirror, mirror, on the wall" and the Star Wars booklets contains pictures showing C-3PO with a fully
gold/bronze body. Unfortunately it doesn't contain the infamous line spoken by Darth Vader to Luke. A Google search will reveal countless people
misquoting the film. The scene is also on YouTube, one of the earliest videos was uploaded in 2007. It has over 5 million views and is titled "Luke, I
am your father".
The vast majority of the comments under the video are people talking about the Mandela Effect and how they're certain it has changed. In several
interviews, even James Earl Jones recalls the the line as "Luke, I am your father". Again, it seems rather strange that people would recently just
notice this well known line has changed and why do so many think it has changed, is there a source for this misconception? It seems like this stuff
should be pretty easy to debunk if there is a clear cause for these false memories. I get the sense that it's fine for these residual effects to
remain, as long as you cannot use them to prove anything has changed, so no one will present a true paradox in reality.
The closest phenomena to this I know of occurs between two entangled particles. In setups such as the delayed choice quantum eraser, there is so
called "back loading" effect which can occur so that what happens in the past is decided by what happens in the present. What this means is that
events in the past are decided in a retrocausal manner so they are consistent with observations made in the present. In other words, what one
entangled particle does can depend on what happens to its partner at a future moment in time. Not entirely sure how that relates to the Mandela Effect
but it's the best example of interactions happening between different points in time.
If you have a rational explanation for any of the questions I have posed then I would like to hear them, I really would prefer to believe I'm not ping
ponging between time lines or living in a computer simulation which is getting adjusted. It's just when I see so many people saying the same thing,
and I agree in most cases, and especially when it's something I feel like I've grown up knowing, I have to seriously consider the most insane
possibilities. Most of the Mandela Effect videos I have watched have a good like/unlike ratio, which isn't typical for most fringe videos on YouTube,
people will strongly dislike misleading and incorrect videos, but that's not what I'm observing in this case.
