Quick! Complete these movie lines:
In Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980) Darth Vader says: “____, I am your father.”
In Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), the Wicked Queen says: “__________ mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?”
If you answered “Luke” and “Mirror” you would be WRONG! DEAD WRONG!
The correct answers are “No” and “Magic.”
Look it up.
A terrifying new article in VICE magazine claims that the above phenomenon is known as the Mandela Effect after the false memories many people have of Nelson Mandela dying in jail sometime in the 1980s. Which he did not do. No matter how clearly you remember it.
The Mandela Effect—or simply the “Effect” as its more inclusive proponents prefer to call it—refers to memories shared by large segments of the population that don’t line up with the current reality.
Yes, history is being changed. Edited. Your memories are being scramble by “nefarious elitist culprits,” who are trying to blend our dimension with alternate dimensions. So goes one theory in which a shadow government of Nazis is trying to merge our reality with one in which the Germans won the war. (Which explains the internet uproar a few years ago when people “misremembered” the popular children’s book series Berenstain Bears as the Bernstein Bears).
Another theory has to do with the scientists at CERN labs who aren’t really scientists at all, but SATANISTS.
What makes the Mandela Effect into a conspiracy isn’t the notion that refugees from parallel universes are living among us, but who is causes all this shifting of reality. The two main imagined culprits are the elite Satanic Overlords at CERN and the quantum-computing Nazi shadow government of the United States.
CERN, or the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is a partnership between top physicists and engineers from 22 European countries. If you believe the official story, the geniuses at CERN invented the world wide web and have discovered the Higgs Boson “God particle.” If you doubt the official story, these scientific breakthroughs are just a cover for the real agenda of opening up an interdimensional portal to hell.
CERN, some in the community believe, is a Satanic organization with occult ties. The group’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will, it is thought, opens a portal like the one hinted at by CERN’s director of research and scientific computing in a thoroughly parsed press conference he gave at CERN HQ a few years back. Major reboots and shutdowns of the LHC sometimes coincide with extreme weather and seismic events, and it is believed that subsequent glitches in our reality occur as CERN gets closer to opening the doorway. Changes will continue to take place until inter-dimensional beings are released from the LHC doorway to destroy mankind.
Other observers of the Effect are less concerned with CERN and believe the quantum computing Nazi shadow government of the United States is the true cause of our changing reality.
This talk given by Geordie Rose, creator of the first commercially available quantum-computing machine, has become a frequently referenced staple within the Effect community. In it, he excitedly discusses the existence of parallel universes and promises that science has now made it possible to “exploit” these alternate realities to “enhance” our own. He reveals that NASA and Google have partnered up to harness the power of one of his quantum-computing devices, which is troubling to the conspiracy-prone because they believe that after NASA hired a bunch of German scientists after World War II under Operation Paperclip, the American government was infiltrated by Nazis.
A general theory of how quantum computers are causing the Effect has NASA, Google, and (by implication) the Nazi-infiltrated shadow government of the United States using quantum computers to merge our universe with a parallel one, most likely one where Germany won World War II (hence the Jewish-sounding Berenstein becomes Berenstain). Our timelines will continue to merge, the community believes, until the reality that is most desirable to the Nazi elites is reached.
“What is the meaning of all of this?” Dani Arnold McKenney from Removing the Shackles, wrote to me in an email. “The ‘reality’ (lol) is that no one really knows. We can theorize about crossing timelines, quantum entanglement, the multiverse being systematically re-absorbed back into a single One, CERN busting portals into other dimensions… but we have no hard and true answer. We have theories. Hypothesis. Ideas. Perspectives.”
