So it would appear the majority of people go for the correct date of 1986.

It's an idea, but those of us who remember 83 or 89 have definitive "personal" proof that our recollections "have" to be correct. It's very simple for me. My father died in 1987, the three years before, I went to a small school in Louisiana called Hessmer middle. When challenger blew up, I was going to Cottonport Elementary. I was 14 when my father died, I was 10 when Challenger exploded. This just isn't apparently my where/when. Not that I'm going to let it cause me to lose sleep.....

I was reading about the ISS on wikipedia earlier and eventually ended up on the page which covers the space shuttle challenger disaster. The wiki page states that this happened in 1986.
I'll never forget watching news footage of the explosion on a TV that one of the teachers had rolled out into the hallway outside of his classroom. The thing is, I graduated from high school in 1983 so this could not be possible.
I certainly don't rule out the possibility of false memory syndrome, but the damn memories are just so real to me that it's hard to imagine that they could be false. I've been going over and over it in my head for the last few hours trying to come up with a reasonable explanation but in the end all I've managed is a headache.
I dunno, maybe I dreamed this after the fact and it somehow got filed away as an actual memory. All I know for sure is that if the Challenger blew up in 1986 then there is no way in hell that I was still in high school at the time. It's just so disorienting when your mind remembers one thing but the facts contradict it.
Anyhow, I'm sitting here, wondering if my head needs to be examined. At the risk of sounding like I'm off my rocker, has anyone else noticed any discrepancies in their recollection of the Challenger disaster?

The universe as you know it is one potential out of literally an infinite number of other potential realities.
The so called flow of time is not what most think and relate to. The concept of time as we have come to know it is an illusion.
Let me quantify...
If there are an infinite number of potential outcomes then each potential exist at the same point.
So there is for example a reality where the challenger accident occurred in 1983 and others where it occurred in 1986.
Movement from one potential to another is what we have become accustomed to think of as time.
But what happens when we die?? The potential for our existence reaches zero within this Reality but what about all the other potential realities??
What I am getting at is that when you cease to be in one reality you don't know it but your consciousness just goes on in a different reality...

I read this thread as I too have had feelings of "change", one of them being that the Queen mum is dead, there is a part of me which says she should be alive.
