If we are all creators of our own reality, then it would only make sense that there are countless parallel worlds. For years, I have theorized that we are all living in a kind of holographic video game. A video game so complex that we are co-creators of. And just like a game or Choose Your Own Adventure novel, all possibilities exist according to our choices and actions. Like in The Matrix. But proof of this idea, I had none,until now.

They call it the Mandela Effect. Named after Nelson Mandela because a mass group of people remember him having died in prison, whereas the official history is that he survived and went onto become president.  I had heard of this phenomenon years ago. But recently, more Mandela Effect discoveries have been made and discussed on a greater scale. The most popular example is The Bernstein Bears as I remember it. But if you go search for it now, it’sThe Bernstain Bears, which is funny because even my spell check doesn’t recognize this spelling. Or do you remember the most famous line from Forrest Gump? “Life is like a box of chocolates”. Well, if you go look at it now, he says “Life was like a box of chocolates”. Now why would he say was? That doesn’t even make sense.

I’m not going to go into many more examples, except for one more later in this post. Only because thee is so much out there on the topic already. You can research it on your own. I want to talk about the more esoteric aspects of it and its implications. If you are convinced that Mandela Effect is real, what does it mean? Your whole perspective on what life and reality must change in order for you to accept this. This is why there are so many in detail about it.

I have one Prince example I want to show you. If you went to Catholic school like I did, then you will know the Lord’s Prayer by heart because you had to receive it daily. Well, if you look it up in the Bible, it’s going to say this:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come,Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory forevermore. Amen.

This is what I got from Wikipedia, there can still be slight variances due to different Bible versions. But the main thing I want to point out is the words Debt and Debtors. The exact version I remember is exactly as is in a Prince song, Controversy.


Some people theorize that we are living in parallel worlds and have different versions, and since 2012, the different worlds or timelines have collapsed into one singular reality, causing this Mandela Effect to occur. Therefore people have different memories. Others will blame it on the Devil, citing hat the dark forces are messing with us. Another group of people blame it on CERN, that their experiments have caused this as a consequence of messing around with the fabric of reality. And some will say it’s some kind of time travel conspiracy that people went back in time and changed the details as an experiment to prove the effects of time travel.

Regardless of what is really causing Mandela Effect, you have to realize this one thing. Reality is not what we once believed it to be. It is not what we are told it is. It is not even what the scientists can prove. What we were once told is impossible is not at all. And therefore you must accept the idea that what we believe is logical and real is not at all.

For some people, this hit them hard, and they went into a kind of depression. Others that blame it on the Devil, go in fear and call this proof that the apocalypse is near. For me personally, it has meant a shift in beliefs, breaking down old pattern of belief systems. It can be a scary thing, but actually, it’s pretty exciting. To me, this is proof that magic and miracles exist and everything in the realm of that is real too.
