Are you from this universe or a parallel one?

I believe that I am, for example, having several examples in my life of things that I distinctly recall happening differently. Will Smith didn't have a mustache in Independence Day.

So I ask, are you from an alternate reality?

The Berenstein/Berenstain Bears divergence, the location of Australia, whether Nelson Mandela died in the 1990s or still lives today, and so on. What are your experiences? When did they occur? Did something trigger them? Were there multiple experiences? I am quite curious.

I have a thread that discusses mine in brief, but I'm now more curious about the public at large.

I kind of get the feeling like I am floating back and forth between the current universe and parallel ones. It's more a feeling than an empirical observation if you know what I mean!

"Will Smith did not have a moustache in Independence Day", when you said it I did think to myself and I wasn't sure. But in the trailer (in our reality), he does have a moustahe and it looks right to me.

I'm not sure. I can remember things both ways and I tend to think I took a divergent path around 2014, but that this became the current reality. The other previous reality still exists on a divergent line, but I assume no one in there will remember I existed. This being the case, I think everyone I have contact with today has also come onto the same path as myself. I believe it has been rare we are able to choose a new path.

I kind of get that feeling too. That's a good point.

Strange thread.

I have been wondering this question quite often lately.

What's more logical: That your memory is faulty (just like everyone's is), or that you're from a parallel universe, and somehow ended up replacing the you from this universe...

Not from this universe. The Berenstein bears are not a false memory, there are specific reasons I know that it was not Berenstain Bears growning up and it has to do with my confusion whether to pronounce it Berensteen or Berenstine because of the ein in the name. If it had always been ain then I would never have wondered how to pronounce it. I think the divergence happened in 2012 when we all thought that NOTHING happened. I have shifted at least twice to my knowledge just based on these books because there was a time before Berenstein where they were actually Berensteine and that was even more confusing. That transition happened in the late 70's.

😐 . . . . . . This again. Whatever makes sense for you I suppose, but, I'm not buying it.

You made the mistake of assuming it was "stein" and questioned your pronunciation based off of that mistake.
What you said just proves that you made the mistake a while back (as did I).

Find me a Mr or Ms Berenstain who hasn't been correcting people for decades and you may have a point.

Nope, I'm from the same one as you were our brains don't focus on trivial information.

Notice how what we "remember" seems to make more sense?
Look into the patterns you find with the Mandela Effect and you will see it's not ghosts and goblins.

In fact, i have since youth been a typography nerd. I found the final e in Berenstein to be particularly horrid to look at. I have a distinctive memory of the e. I spent hours loathing that e.

Go ahead and disbelieve things you haven't experienced. All of my evidence is circumstantial, streets out of place, friends I never met with whom I supposedly had extensive interactions, and on and on. Yes, I've forgotten all that, surely, of course, what else could it be.... Of course, I can remember the layout of the house I lived in in 1989, what wave-function collapse is, and the exact number of parks I've been in with willow trees, for example. Clearly, it must be a faulty memory.

There exists only One Universe.
The whole 'multiverse theory' is a pathetic attempt to 'diddle' those handing out grants.
The 'hypothesis' fails philosophically, fails scientifically (quantum mechanics).
Fails in many ways.
Science fiction fans, without too much science education, or philosophical ability, like to accept such nonsense because it comes close to the sci-fi movies of their imagination, and dramatically (read; fun) answers so many 'questions' based on occasional 'spurious' 'feelings'/thoughts.
The very definition of Uni-verse = uni means One!
No matter what you discover, it is a feature of the One Truth/Reality/Universe.. 'God'... ALL inclusive!

I find it ironic that you mention scientific literacy and godliness in the same breath as virtues, when they are in fact antitheses to each other.

I'm sure it was Berenstein as well. I'm also wrong however.
On a bright note, you were right to think that the final e looked funny.

It's just a side effect of our extremely efficient memory.

The Berenstain's have been correcting people for decades. Whilst it's preferable to ignore this fact for your theory to hold, it does need to be explained.

My explanation is that sometime between 1993, the last time I cared remotely about the Berenstain Bears, and 2015, I swapped universes and now live in the one where the clerk who recorded their family name in English when they emigrated to the US decided on A instead of E, where I come from. In this universe, it was always Berenstain. Just as in this universe, Nelson Mandela has always still been alive, and Will Smith always had that stupid little mustache in Independence Day.

Double posting, it is the best.
Double posting, double posting.
Woo woo, the double posting train.

Don't hit that button twice, folks, it's bad news city after that.

Interesting theory, doesn't the fact that the Berenstain's were correcting people often before 1993 disprove that?

Also regarding your typography nerd status, don't you find it strange that the other 2 e's didn't bother you?

I'm from this Universe. I do not trust my own memory to have any reason to think otherwise.

Pretty arrogant, actually, to think otherwise. Though, unless you are a particularly conservative Catholic, I haven't seen anything very shocking.
