I genuinely try to make it through the entirety of a thread before I comment. I make it a particular point to finish at least the OP before
commenting. I can't, here, and for that I apologize slightly.
I'm willing to give a modest beard stroke to a great number of ideas and concepts, particularly when it involves eschatology or most any sort of
differential universe scenario, because barring direct and observable contact with an "outside" reality, it can only remain in theoretical, conceptual
form. We're tricky beasts, and reality is only quantifiable by our perceptions of it.
Some topics, particularly Mandela Effect (to be on, well, topic) related lines, draw my interest beyond the passing 'hmm' until the information in
question hits one of my manure triggers. And unfortunately, in this case, it happens rather early.
I'm going to use a single quotebox and embolden my points of contention, while also cutting out text that, while certainly relevant to your point as a
whole, doesn't pertain to my qualms.
There is something unique about us who are going through the effects .
I used to think maybe those of us who are Mandela effected really did die and we got transported to a parallel dimension or purgatory type
state ( similar to the characters in the Television series LOST)
The other group of individuals who aren’t going through the effects are the ones being experimented upon , and acting like the old
world never existed and that we arecrazy ..
That was it, honestly; I skimmed a bit more, but after just a small scroll I was so completely lost and had no context for your words that I genuinely
couldn't be arsed to see how you'd fit a viable transition from the above into what I was reading, as I doubt very much it could be done.
My problem with whatever theory you were going to present here is that you present the populace as two distinct groups; those who are able to
recognize the changes in reality, and those that are not. You enforce this idea several more times; there was mention of genes and experimental groups
at the least. This fails to include individuals like myself, who "clearly remember" events from "both" realities, depending on the instance at hand.
The famous Bears book, I remember the "old" way. Many of the newer instances either escaped my notice either way, or I "remember" the "new"
So where does that leave me, and many others like me, in the grand scheme of your dual-reality ME hypothesis? As I'm representative of a large enough
group, this makes any further theorizing down your line moot for me, as it's excluding such a large portion of relevant data because it doesn't fit
into your model.
I also realize this is Skunkworks, so that might be overly critical, and if so then I do apologize. However, I'm not entirely willing to discount
your, and you'll pardon my uninformed synopsis, Christianity-based deific hypothesis. I would, however, ask that you examine it outside of a dualistic
(read: Western, Abrahamic) mindset. Doing so wouldn't necessarily preclude the Creator/Destroyer oppositional influences intrinsic to your ideas, but
might allow you to do so within a multiversal context.
E: Whoops, forgot about Lost. IIRC, the characters there were secluded from the rest of "people" for the vast majority of the show (until the final
season I want to say). There weren't two groups; there were those on the island. To fit into your analogy, there would also have to be the second
group of "real" people, unless you meant to imply those were us as the viewers, which would've been a lot cooler if you did.
