The Mandela Effect
Here are my views on the Mandela Effect. Most of it is caused by imperfect human memory. For instance, tell a person who wears a regular dial watch to close their eyes and describe it. Even though the person may have looked at it 20 times a day for five years he is likely not able to describe it. He cannot tell which numbers are missing or other details. I asked a number of people this when I was a kid and no one got it right.
How often have we recalled events of long ago with old friends and each of us has a different recollection? We had the same experience, but registered it differently.
I believe there is just one physical reality with us as players though there are numerous dimensions and other realities. There are not dozens or even millions of you on duplicate earths.
That said there is the real effect of deja vu and some memories seem so real that many do swear to the Mandela Effect. Is something other worldly at play here?
It could be. Remember the Holodeck from Star Trek? We have something similar to this available to us in the spirit world between lives as well as during sleep when the mind is united with the Higher Self. Before we were born we could use this spiritual technology to project what would happen in our lives if certain decisions were made or if various circumstances manifested. Sometimes we also do this projection during sleep and normally only have the faintest of recollection while awake. On the other hand, there are times that you were playing around with manipulating reality while in the spirit that comes across strongly while awake and this produces deja vu and the Mandela Effect in some cases.

More on the Mandela Effect
So far have I have not found one Mandela Effect that cannot be attributed to tricks placed on the memory. If you have any proof beyond this possibility I would like to see it.
Concerning the origin of the phrase which began with people remembering that Mandela died in prison when he did not I distinctly remember it the way that it is recorded – that he served his time and was released.
Some are making a big deal of scriptures being changed attributing the changes to the devil, but if that were the case you would think that tricky devil would have changed scriptures that would have directly affected our belief in Jesus.
The most quoted Mandela Effect scripture is Isaiah telling us that instead of the lion and the lamb lying down together it is the wolf and the lamb:
“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid.” Isa 11:6. They leave out the fact that when the entire verse is quoted then lion is in it, and probably the reason for all the pictures of the lion and the lamb, giving the false impression that was the wording of the scripture. Here’s the whole verse:
“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young LION and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.”
I never paid much attention to the lion and lamb scripture, but there is one cited in the Mandela effect that I did. It was this one:
“Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.” Matt 9:17
Many say they remember the scripture as being “wineskins” and not “bottles.”
I distinctly remember the wording as bottles from Sunday School way back in the 1950s. The teacher read the scripture which used the word “bottles” and explained that in the days of Jesus they didn’t use bottles, but wineskins.
If a person has read any other version besides King James he will have read the translation as the more correct “wineskins” so it is no wonder that many think the King James also used this word.
There is one thing that happens to me that comes closest to making me think the Mandela Effect is real. It seems that every time I make a bet with my wife that she wins because reality seems to have changed. She gets a bang out of my perplexed state.
By the way, I have finished my treatise on the Law of One and would be interested in any comment you may have. The link is at the top of the page at this time.
