“Mirror mirror on the wall – who is the fairest of them all?”
“Magic Mirror on the wall – who is the fairest of them all?”
What happens when you have a clear memory of something that never happened in THIS reality?
This is a phenomenon known as the Mandela Effect. This is when complete strangers remember the exact same events with the exact same details and memories are different from what is in history books, newspaper archives, etc.
The term Mandela Effect was coined by Fiona Broome and a Dragon Con security manager. The term, came from the reports of people remembering Nelson Mandela’s tragic death in a South African prison, which supposedly never happened. Broome runs a website all about the Mandela Effect and theories surrounding it.
- Parallel realities actual exist. We have been “sliding” between the different realities with out realizing. The “false memories” are actually a remaining memory from the parallel reality.
- We are each enjoying holodeck or simulated realities that are creating artificial environments. The “false memories” are actual programming glitches.
- Snow White’s “Mirror Mirror on the wall,” is actually “Magic Mirror on the wall…”
- “Looney Toons” is actually “Looney Tunes.”
- “Berenstein Bears” is actually “Berenstain Bears.”
- The famous “Forrest Gump” quote is “Life WAS like a box of chocolates…” not “Life IS like a box of chocolates.”
- Its “Sex in the City” not “Sex and the City.”
- The famous “Star Wars” quote is “No, I am your father,” not “Luke, I am your father.”
One of the newest Mandela Effect’s is from the very famous Panic! At The Disco song “I write sins not tragedies.” The lyric “I chimed in with haven’t you people ever heard of closing THE g****** door,” is actually “closing A g****** door.” Halsey took to twitter to confirm this Mandela Effect by tweeting it at Brendon Urie and saying “Explain.” Urie responded with “hahaha I can’t. That’s some Berenstein/Berenstain s*** right there.”
Are misspellings part of the Mandela Effect?
- “Whoa” not “woah.”
- “Manhattan” not “Manhatten.”
- “Oxiclean” not “Oxyclean.”
Some believe that spelling is also something that has been changed due to the parallel realities. What do you think?
However, it is possible to debunk some of the Mandela Effects due to mistyping on merchandise and new versions of movies, songs, or branding. There are still some that remain puzzling and give a little more credit to the theory of the Mandela Effect.
Did any of these Mandela Effects surprise (or is it suprise) you?
