I just experienced it. I swore I had already tested some hardware and it didn't work. I had left it there as a paper weight. Then one day out of
gentle desperation I tried it again, hoping maybe somehow I remembered wrong or it'd fix itself sort of like when Marty slammed his head against the
dashboard and the car started up. Being familiar with hardware, I know it can do weird things, so when I troubleshoot I always give it another chance.
Well whuddya know? It worked. It conflicted with my memory. I guess I have no way of knowing whether this was a timeline shift or something other
hackjob from above. The rational part of me--the Spock part--tells me it was a discombobulated memory. I can't reject that explanation. It at least
has a solid, reasonably scientific foundation. If I'm to be pessimistic, it means I can't trust my memory.
I think for the mandela effect to be real it needs to be something which is not only corroborated in the memory of individuals but also recorded by
devices which're not susceptible to the faults of the human mind. If a camera, for example, records a sequence of events which differ from what
history remembers then it may be possible to empirically confirm it by examining the camera and the details surrounding its recording. You'd want
multiple cameras and controls to show it's an actual phenomenon.
If ONLY the human mind is able to detect these "timeline shifts" then we need to figure out exactly what the human mind is so we can duplicate the
effect in a lab environment. The mind holds the key.
