I've found that with certain "fringe" topics, it's helpful to look for multiple sources, and any well-respected science/technology publications that can back up the theory is always beneficial for communicating your message effectively. This also typically means it will be received better by your audience as well. Just some thoughts!

Mandela mind melds by internet. Repeat something enough times people begin to get a glazed look....

They start repeating mantras in a sing song voice as they,

walk off cliffs and wander into traffic looking for Pokemans.

I beleeeve...

For Mandela to have died in jail, it would have had to have been before February 1990. I was in South Africa from 1986 to late 1990 working for the military with MI and CI against the ANC and foreign actors. If Mandela had of died in prison, I would have known and i would have stayed in South Africa.

I didn't say when it was published, the article I posted did.



But you did.. just above your quoted material from in5d, you said:




In one of their official publications from '91...

As if the argument for the Mandela Effect couldn't get any more ridiculous. Jumping on high school-grade literature to support their theories... I'm sorry, but that's pretty hilarious.

I can understand if the use of high school projects stem from a lapse of research, but those who want to present this theory as a serious one must ensure that their arguments are supported by adequate research and information.

At this rate, no one in their right mind would seriously consider the theory, especially when there are other arguments which are much more compelling, such as incorrect memories and misinterpretations.

Right - the text is based on the article.

I thought that was obvious. I should of stated it in a much simpler way.

Do the same search for "1991" in the book and you'll see several examples. The examples talk about events that have already taken place (you can look them up).

ETA: Added Agartha to reply list.


It's fiction, it's a fictional story written by a high school student. No proof of anything. See on my previous post what the editor told me on an email, you can ask him yourself.

The ME conversation has gone past faulty memory and common mistakes.


Yes it sure has.

This thread is a great example how ignorant the idea has become.

PROOF?

You know you can still change your thread title.

I am wondering if you are going address the facts brought up by others in this thread about this publication, you know, how its fictional and in a book of stories written by high schoolers?

Let me quote this again




The ME conversation has gone past faulty memory and common mistakes.


are you really that sure?

So this wasn't a mistake and you purposely tried to fool others or was it simply a lack of research and mistake you made?

Because it's a fantastic, mind-blowing idea that people are desperate to believe in. Believers want it so badly to be true and that thwarts them from facing logical explanations. It stops them for thinking critically about it.

I love conspiracies. I research them a lot. It feels good to have outlandish ideas floating around my head. I researched the Mandala Effect pretty much and there isn't enough there by far. It's clear to me how these discrepancies happen.

You didn't need to "state it in a simpler way", you just needed to clarify more.

It's good to use language like "according to the article", and distance yourself from the claims so that it doesn't appear that you are repeating the same claims (instead you are reporting on what another source is claiming).

See the difference?
It makes quite a difference.

I don't think many do, they sort of go along if asked, maybe. The way people will tell you which religion they are with. Oh, I was raised Catholic, even though they don't practice.

They are campaigning this idea hoping it will stick and grow on you.

Just another Bermuda triangle, ancient alien, Hillary is winning, disinformation campaign.

So this was a book, apparently written in 1990, that discusses Nelson Mandela dying more than a year later, in 1991? So the authors could see into the future, and incorrectly at that? Interesting premise.

a reply to: Pearj

OP, you are claiming this book was written in October of '91 but I can't seem to find that information anywhere. Everything seems to indicate this was written sometime in 1990, before the 1991 date it claims Mandela even died on.

From the google books link you posted, near the bottom of the page:




Publisher Western Cape Branch of the South African Council for English Education, 1990
(1990 - date of publication)


That gave me somewhat of an online orgasm.

Thanks FamCore. What's the charge ?

Wait, George W. Bush was President? I distinctly remember AL Gore winning and within the first 4 years of his presidency solved global warming and global hunger.

In my time line Gore created a paradise for all the world's people and we abolished government.

Maybe there is something to this Mandela Effect.

No...I remember him when he got OUT of prison...and participated in the government for a few years after. Additionally he travel the world a bit and was well received in more than several countries.

And no...this was not a one time delusion..he was taped out of prison, a year later and more further...so...nonsense. His funeral was televised in 2013 I believe.

I question those who are too young to remember the reality of when things happen because they read some book or watch youtube...seriously...wow...
