And Toronto has always been the capital of Canada..... (somebody's already mentioned New York instead of Washington...... Rio or Sao Paulo instead of Brasilia... etc etc).

When it's not your country sometimes your brain assumes the most popular/mentioned cities are the capitals.

Mix that with human's faulty memory and poor geograpy knowledge and you have the Mandela Effect.

P.s- It was always Berenstein you agree??
Berenstain isn't even a genuine jewish last name, and the creators of the bears books were a Jewish family, no?


First of all those who grew up speaking Italian and Spanish remember the bears as Berenstain, with an 'a', because we don't pronounce it 'ein' like the English speakers, but 'A-in' with 'a' like 'apple'.

Second, the authors themselves have written online about their name, spelled with an 'a'.

England had TWO Capital cities. Winchester and London.

However in the 14th Century London became the sole capital city.

It's your education or assumption, it has since 1938 been Canberra, it's not up for debate
It has never been Sydney in my 50 odd years of life
It's not even a question
You have just been wrong


If you were approaching 100 years of age you might remember Sydney as the disputed capital of the nation.

I was taught that it was Canberra, although I think that Sydney was an inpromptu capital until federation because that's where the first fleet landed.

But my Australian history knowledge is shaky but if the explorer Van Dieman settled Australia first it would be a whole different story.

First of all I have seen reality changes, the drip-less spout and other very simply but extremely lucrative 1970's-80's invention's, the way water flow's and it's viscosity, how it splashes being different and it now being far lower in viscosity to what I remember, the sky being blue not grey with a greenish tinge, the sun having a golden light not the white cold barren light it seem's to have now, the summer sun being gently warm and translucency of light itself behaving differently, plant's being more vibrant as the light passed through them more than simply bouncing off them, even the bible changing, God portrayed more loving but distance and stern while now he is potrayed more angry, wrathful and even cruel.

So I know where you are coming from, I remember it this way but it is now that way and it does not make sense to me.

In support of you I do remember how everyone thought that Sydney was the capital of Australia, I even assumed as much but was not a big geography fan at school, it was certainly regarded as Australia's most important city but I can't say for certain that I was every shocked that it was Canberra that was the capital and in fact Canberra just feel's right unlike the other thing's I have noted that are not the same.

Other's that share this sense that something is very wrong with our reality, that it is not as real as it should be, that it has errors that do not line up with what we know to be true are actually very many people.

Other popular explanation's include the idea that the universe is a simulation, that this is a copy, an inferior copy of our universe, that reality has changed through some higher dimensional alteration in the state of the universe.

Other term's include the now infamous mandela effect for similar changes noted by people.

Can so very many of us all be faulty or could it be that despite so many other's not noting the change's we have that reality has indeed shifted or perhaps two parallel but different reality's have merged and only the dominant state of reality remain's.

I refer to it as snowflake syndrome.
Someone ignorant to the truth, who is also so self righteous that they feel there is no way they could have been mistaken/wrong for so long, desides to claim a non existent "force" has changed reality.
You're dillusional at best.

Take a black hole, you know one of those quantum singularity's that is left when a massive star collapses completely into a point where it can collapse no further, not one of those brown holes hawking postulate's.

Ever heard of an event horizon, the space just around the singularity were normal time/space stop's.

Spaghettification, what happen's to time/space just above and at the event horizon were mass, energy and contrary to hawking's idea information are pulled into oblivion.

Ever wandered when a true black hole form's in multiple parallel reality's what really happen's at that point were they merge, does that pulse of quantum gravity from the instant the TRUE black hole form's zip those reality's back together as it ripples outward across the Time Space Continuum.

Snowflake syndrome is more for older people with Alzheimer, generally forgetful people (often very intelligence otherwise, Einstein would often lose his key's and according to some story's forget his way home) and scatter brain's but it is hardly appropriate to this thread now is it and in fact it is very rude to even reference it in that anti Copernicus manner.

Yea well I always had thought it was Australia my dad just took a trip there a year ago and talked about Sydney being the capital city. Why would you build the most famous opera house ever in a random city??

But if you ask me we are clashing with many different universes as vibrations get higher reality becomes more skewed.... There are people that I know have changed dramatically in personality not only that but I notice things like tattoos and even fake boobs changing that apparently they had for years...sometimes its a little unsettling but rational when you understand quantum physics... Crazy times


Stay woke my friends

I remember Sydney being the largest city, but not the Capitol. I cant recall what the Capitol may have been, except that it started with a C.

I will not tell some one their memories are very faulty, I know mine are on some counts.
But, when I was with the U S State Department in 1968, the capital of Australia was Canberra.
I made two trips there on Dept. business.

the world is much stranger than we believe it to be. No one knows for sure what the heck our life is


Seriously? That means you don't get behind the steering wheel of a car or rely on electric power to cool down your fridge?


So you have an answer to every single question ever asked?

If not, your post was completely pointless.

ETA:

My mention of things we can only wonder or speculate about are the unanswered questions. Even the "factually" proven things cannot be proven.
Let me show you how it works...

Prove to me that we exist and this is not a dream.

I can't prove that it isn't but you can't prove that it is.

Open your mind brother.

Canberra has all the legal porn, pyrotechnics and weed - which makes sense when you realize that the politicians main club-house is located there, so all the illegal sh!t is there too, everyone else just does it illegally just shakes theirs heads in bloody disgust at the perverted drug addicts.

NB: Canberra has always been the capital of Australia.

I always thought it was sydney and was suprised to hear it was canberra

The capital of Australia is not Sydney.

If people "remember" Sydney as the capital then they are wrong, misled, or just plain challenged. Sydney is certainly the cultural heart of Australia, but it not the heart of government.

Sometimes I really do think people should travel. You know, get off the sofa and see the world, rather than surf the web. In that way all these little misunderstandings will be cleared up.

Here's a pointless video to prove the point...

I never did know what the capital of Australia is, I just always knew Sydney as the largest, most populated and most metropolitan city in oz.

As an American with an American ejumication I don't pretend to know anything!
Especially when it comes to geography.

Many Americans don't know the capital of Florida is Tallahassee not Orlando or Miami or Tampa. To be American and assume you know what the capital of a different nation is without knowing for a fact is assuming to much.
Best check yo facts!

But here's the problem--I was really into spelling when I was a younger child, but one of the issues that I had was differentiating when words had "ei" or "ie" in them. This being the case, I used to own many Berenstein Bears books at that age, and I specifically recall using the name (as I spelled it) as an example of a word/name with "ei" in it. My mom has even verified this.

So, how is that easily explained away? I also remember using it to go beyond spelling to remembering the difference in pronunciation of "ei" and "ie" in German words--again, using that name, printed on the book, as an example.

I fully believe that faulty memory in humans is a big part of the "Mandela Effect," but there ARE some things that have been noted that I just can't explain away.

But, I'm sure to everyone who disagree with the "Berenstein" spelling will just disregard my anecdote as being faulty memory, but it's worth considering that I tested out in both reading and reading comprehension levels in at 12+ grade level when I was in fifth grade--when I would get in trouble as a kid, I'd get sent to my room and what I would do to pass the time was read encyclopedias. I was definitely a book nerd, but spelling was a big thing to me as a child--I can't explain this one away as faulty memory, especially when my mom recalls working with me in the context I noted concering the whole I-before-E thing.

As a teen during 2000 Olimpics in fact I thought Sydney is a capital but then I was quickly pulled to the ground.

Thank your for your reply and for sharing your experience. I have not experienced any Mandela effect and I have noticed that the 'locals' never remember things 'incorrectly' (I used incorrectly for lack of a better word right now). With this I mean: South-Africans never remember Mandela dying in prison, Australians don't remember Sydney being their capital, etc etc.

If I have to give my honest opinion then yes, I believe human memory sucks and science have proven people sometimes fabricate memories that never happened. However, this is the most understandable part of the ME.

What irritates me is when people say their anatomy changed suddenly and describe an anatomy that's so faulty it could have been imagined by a small child (which is off topic, I know, lol).
