5 Examples of The Mandela Effect

  • Added:  9 days ago
  • The Mandela Effect is a phenomenon where a large number of people remember something that actually never happened - seemingly sharing false memories of past events. Referred to as confabulation in psychiatry, some have speculated that the memories are caused by parallel universes spilling into our own. Others explain the phenomenon as a failure of collective memory. According to believers, this is not a case of mistaken memory. Instead, it’s hypothesized that some of us have moved between alternate realities, hence remembering things that have been written out of our current timeline - or that time travelers have inadvertently changed subtle things in our history, whether deliberately or accidentally, and therefore affected our present, remarkably similar to the “Back To The Future” movie franchise! The spelling of well-remembered brand names and the subtle "altering" of familiar logos has convinced believers history has been tampered with during our lifetimes.

    Hi! I am Mister Mysterious, and on this episode of “How It’s Made”... Just kidding!. In this video, we will deal with five examples of the Mandela Effect. Let’s start with the most popular example of the effect itself, which sparked heated discussions about this interesting phenomenon.

    The weirdest ones I can't get over after an existential crisis when going too deep into this rabbit hole would have to be the Apollo 13 flip flop which was quoted as a misquote in an article attempting to debunk Mandela effects as precisely as its quoted it still freaks me out cause I never heard quote until looking into MEs and within a month it changed but the article by buzz feed still says it as it was. The Oliver Twist most famous line not being please sir may I have some more he just says I want some more which sounds dumb. Hey Arthur scene makes fun of this saying please sir may I ave some ore and Arthur is handed an ore. Also few animals people typically assume are endangered are fine like bald eagles and polar bears

    I have personally experienced the Mandela effect not so long ago.
    I have lived in the same area for nearly 20 years and know it well so on taking my usual route through the park path to the shop I was confronted with a tree right in the middle at the paths end. This blocked my usual pretty view so I became a bit disorientated. Just then the local dog walker passed by and I stopped them to ask about the tree. She stated it had always been there so I became even more baffled. I carried on and then went home.
    This played on my mind but I then forgot about it until for some reason my mind brought it back to the fore a week later as I prepared to go to the shop again. I was astounded to note the tree was gone and my clear view of the field was no longer blocked.

    I thought this was just about a bunch of stupid people until the Sinbad one. I vaguely remember commercials about that Shazam movie thinking how can they make a movie with a DC comics character name. My own personal mandela effect is not ever remembering having that pointy thing at the solar plexus part of the rib cage. I used to love human anatomy as a kid and studied skeletal structure. The strange thing is I didn't even feel that pointy thing in my own body. Remember seeing picrures or skeletons without it up until about eight yrs ago.

    I seriously remember very well a movie called Jungle 2 Jungle with Tim Allen late 90's later like 1999 I saw a movie do not recall the name of it but it was the exact same movie bit different cast. I thought it was a sequel then I remember thinking Disney is going to sue. I also went to a function about JFK Assassination and he had the Zapruta film we watched over and over. I do not recall the middle seat area. He showed how the bullet went through and hit the man in the front seat. I am so confused. Do we decide subconsciously not to remember things? There is a Shazam with Sinbad btw

    This is true. I was in grade school when I first heard the name Nelson Mandela. All the grown ups in school made a big deal about his death. Not knowing his background in politics, I remember wondering why is it bad for someone in jail to die. I was surprised and confused hearing about his second death.

    What I notice is that the effect only happens with recall. The Tianamen(?) square tank boy.... I remember him not getting run over and being a little shocked that a communist government would have run him down. Though it is easy to understand how mass mispreceptions can certainly take place and happen. With T-square tank boy incident for example, the concensus of communism back then, to those in the west, would have expected the civilian to have easily been run over so it isn’t that surprising that people would adjust a memory to fit a narrative. or.................. maybe I am one of those......anomalies???

    Ok this will explain why I personally believe there are 2 versions of the Tom Hanks classic 'Big'. I refer to the fact that I recall the ending of the movie contains a scene after the credits, where Hanks character returns to school after his mystical adventure to find a new girl in his class, which turns out to be the female lead from the movie, who'd gone back to the "wish machine" to become a kid again. I always thought this was meant to set up a sequel that never came.

    This might seem rather mundane, but about fifteen years ago my dad and I were working in our shop and we ran across a chartreuse antena ball that seemingly appeared from nowhere on one of the worktables. I asked him if it was his and he told me that he had never seen it in his life. So we decided to toss it back and forth for about a half hour.

    After our break we went back to work and when we finished later on we tossed the ball back and forth again, this time I was standing near the doorway and my dad was by my station. Then my dad threw the ball and it hit one of the fluorescent light cables and dropped straight down in front of me, but my eyes focused on my dad as I jeered at him for hitting the cable. I heard the ball hit the ground once but that was all. The door to the shop was open, so naturally I peeked outside to search for it, but it wasn't there. I check under my truck, behind the wheels, even moved my truck, it just wasn't there. So I figured it rolled underneath the worktable, but it wasn't there either. It was gone.

    My dad helped look for it but we couldn't find it. We stayed in that shop for a couple more years then moved to a different location. When we emptied out the shop we still couldn't find it.

    One day it just appeared out of nowhere and at the end of the day it was gone. We never saw it before that day and never saw it again after that day.

    Ironically, I think the Mandela example may be the easiest one to explain. Most seem to think he died in the 80's, right? Well, in 1987 a major motion picture called "Cry Freedom!" starring Denzel Washington was released to considerable acclaim. It tells the story of Steve Biko who, like Mandela was a prominent opponent of apartheid (I remember "Free Biko!" graffiti on a lot of walls back in the 70's) but who, unlike Mandela, was in fact brutalized and killed in prison. Might not explain everybody's false memories, but pretty sure it will do for a lot of people--the ones who either saw the movie or at least heard the buzz about it at the time.

    probably about 5 years ago,before I even knew what a "Mandela Effect" was, I was researching the Tiananmen Square protests. I was 6 years old in 1989' & have no memory of the incident, so I asked my mother about it & if she remembered it, she said she did & she remembered the guy who stood in front of the Tanks, then she told me that it was So sad that he got ran over by the Tanks & I remember telling her that it never happened, I even showed her the footage & she was stunned. She swore up & down that she specifically remembered him being ran over.

    Regarding 'Tank Man'

    That footage definitely existed, but the tank driver tried to veer around him. There were young PLA soldiers in those days who did not want to fire on civilians and many incidents of the civilians urging them to join their ranks. Deng Xiaoping feared there would be a mutiny.

    I think what happened was the rolling footage of the 'tank man' standoff got interrupted. I don't think he was run over... more likely arrested or killed elsewhere

    Even CCP officials have acknowledged he is 'probably dead' - one of the very few details they have given

    If he survived, someone would have come forward by now claiming to be him? most likely in exile in North America or Europe...

    I don't remember Mandela, dying in prison, but I do remember the huge deal they made of his getting out of prison and then becoming President. I also remember the also huge memorial service for his death, with obama and his "wife" in attendance. I remember Darth Vader saying "Luke, I am your father". And I remember that very brave man standing all alone in front of those tanks, in Tienamin Square. (Sorry, I probably didn't spell that right.) I also remember another one, from the Bible. Isaiah chapt. 11: 6 now says " The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb." But I remember when it said, " And the lion shall lye down with the lamb."
