Live your best possible life. How good can it get?

I’m grateful for the ever-increasing awareness that people have of reality shifts and Mandela Effects, with many noteworthy shifts coming to my awareness this past year.

Some of these include:

Kidneys have moved up from where many of us remember they used to be in the lower back, as they remembered, but rather higher up, closer to the lower ribcage. Those least likely to report this physiological change don’t include a geographically clustered group this time, but rather doctors, nurses, and medical professionals. Intriguingly, kidney punches are still called kidney punches in martial arts, but now don’t hit anywhere near the actual kidneys–thus the report of kidneys now being in a new physical location in the body finds some ‘reality residue’ support in the term ‘kidney punch.’ The so-called “kidney punch” in martial arts no longer makes any physical sense, since the target is now where the kidneys used to be, and not where they are currently situated. You can compare these two things for yourself quite easily to get the quickest sense of why so many people (such as myself) are so amazed by this particular shift.

 

Objects in the Mirror ARE closer than they appear is now the message we see on vehicular side view mirrors, rather than what many of us remember, “Objects in mirror may be closer than they appear.” There was a kind of understated humor to that wording, that made the scene in the movie Jurassic Park so much more subtle and funnier for me, back when the movie used to have the wording the way all the side-view mirrors at the time used to be.

 

Abraham Lincoln’s son, Robert Todd Lincoln survived to adulthood, and fathered children. I’d only previously ever heard of President Lincoln’s son, Todd, who died tragically in childhood–but now he has a son who had children and grandchildren. I see that the official history about Abraham Lincoln now shows that he and Mary Todd Lincoln had four sons, with only one living to adulthood and having children.

 

First terrorist attack in the USA? 1916 Statue of Liberty While you might have guessed the first terrorist attack in the United States of America happened at Pearl Harbor, historical documentation now exists showing the Black Tom explosion on 30 July 1916 was the first such incident. German agents attacked a munitions supply dump on Black Tom Island, a 25-acre promontory jutting out from Jersey City in 1916, causing a huge explosion that killed seven people and damaged the Statue of Liberty. The explosion registered an estimated 5.5 on the Richter scale, and resulted in the permanent closing off of the torch on the Statue of Liberty ever since.

 


Great Wall of India is the second biggest wall in the world, yet most of us have never heard of it. And for some reason, the origins and history of this giant wall in the heart of Madhya Pradesh still remain a mystery. The wall is constructed from large, evenly sized local stones that interlock without mortar. Apparently in this current reality, this rather gigantic wall has been well known a long time–so long, in fact, that there are more questions than answers about who built it, when, and why.

 

No north polar cap shown on maps and globes, nor can any polar ice mass be seen on any maps, including Google Earth. The date on the globe pictured here is 1979. I remember seeing cartoons of Santa’s workshop up at the north pole with a red and white specially marked pole that said, “North Pole” up in the snowy north polar ice cap. But here we have such an old-looking globe, sans north pole ice.

 

Bruce Springsteen’s back pocket has a red cap now, not the red bandanna so many people seem to recall on the cover of his album, “Born in the USA.” I remember when the album came out back in the 1980s that Springsteen’s back pocket sported his iconic red bandana–not a red cap, which looks all wrong.

 

Jesus was hung in a tree, not on a cross (Acts 5:30), changing the entire crucifixion story.

 

World population is now 7.6 billion. I remember seeing the world population was around 6 billion in the 1980s, headed for 7 billion in the 1990s, always with anticipated exponential growth. Yet now, the official historical records still show that familiar exponential curve, yet the current January 2018 world population figure is 7.6 billion.

Infrared image of WTC on 9/11

WTC buildings 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 were all demolished in 9/11 (not just 1, 2 and 7), with the damage to building 6 occurring inexplicably and spectacularly–yet I do not recall having previously heard about destruction of that 8-story building. Now WTC building number six apparently experienced a massive implosion with a crater at its basement in its center, with damage going to the lowest sublevels, with the basement of WTC building six now having exploded at the exact moment the South Tower was hit.

 

What used to be HIPPA is now HIPAA: Many Americans remember the “Health Information Patient Privacy Act” (HIPPA), yet apparently this never existed. Instead, we’ve long had the United States’ Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Comments on: "Review of top Mandela Effects of 2017" (12)

    Regarding Abraham Lincoln’s descendants — For many years (in the late 1980s and throughout the 1990s), I had a pen-pal who was a descendent of Abraham Lincoln through his son Robert (whom I remember learning about in grade-school history classes back in the 1970s). Therefore, I do not understand why I shave consider the past existence of Robert Lincoln to be something “changed” and “new.“ The same holds true for other things that I see my friends and neighbors and e-mail pals calling “Mandela Effects” and the like — Four instance, I remember Bruce Springsteen with a red cap (not bandanna) in his back pocket, I remember the Berenstain Bears simply always having an “a” in the name where I’m apparently lsupposed” to remember an “e” as everyone else does — and this has been lifelong: in grade school, back in the 1970s)I actually ended up in arguments and even fights with classmates AND TEACHERS who were spelling it “Berenstein”m and who wouldn’t give up harming and publicly shaming me even AFTER I showed them the book covers and pointed out the “a” in the name: because they’d been SURE that the book-covers would have an “e” there, so it was no fun for them when they old me to check the book-cover myself, and I did, and there was an “a.” (For instance, there was a teacher who hated me for the whole year because, once I’d asked her why she was spelling it “Berenstein”-with-an-“e” when the cover said “Berenstein”-with-an-“a,” she reflexively pointed to the “a” in the name while saying “you need to look more carefully, dear, because this is NOT an ‘a’” — at which point, the entire class saw it WAS an “a,” and laughed at the teacher, but the teacher told them to not be stupid like me, so during recess they gathered around and ridiculed me for the incidents Basically, they decided to say that, just because there really WAS an “a” there, that didn’t mean I was right I COULDNT be right because I was the semi-official school scapegoat for anything that the other kids and the teacher wanted one for, so somehow the “a” on the cover had to be my fault, too, even if nobody could figure out just how.)
    Here have been many such incidents in my life, going back even into the 1960s (I was born in 1963) — instances where,p everyone else in the room EXCEPT me remembered things in ways that would now be called “Mandela Effect memory ways} (like not remembering any Robert Lincoln when we’d all just been reading about him in a fourth grade class assignment to read a bio of Lincoln that had a chapter on all of his children, including Robert) and I’d be the only person in the room whose memories actually fit the observable real world, and they’d hate me for it. For jnstance, when I was taking Jon martial arts for a while in 1983, I remember the instructor explaining that what’s traditionally called a “kidney punch” really shouldn’t Ben called that because the kidneys are much higher up (he even showed us a poster-chart of human anatomy, which made this fact plain), but it’s still called a “kidney punch” because it does put strain/damage on the urinary dipucta thwtnfo out of the kidneys, somit does make for painful urination, and urination is the job of the kidneys, because they make the urine … so think of it as “a punch that affects what the kidneys do for us,” but that’s just too long to say, so “kidney punch” it is, “for short.” Anyway, a week later, I was the ONLY person in the class who remembered this, and everyone Lerning (except the instructor) was back to remembering the kidneys being much lower down. At least the instructor in THIS class didn’t hate me for being the only one in the room who had it demonstrably eight according to the observable evidence. Similarly, ‘way back in 1967 when I was 4, after I saw the Disney film SNOW WHITE for the first time, I remember being really puzzled about why other folks who saw it with me (Mom and a sister) thought I was strange when I asked why the evil queen had said “Magic mirror on the Wall” in the movie when its “Mirror, mirror on the wall” in the books, Mom and my sister, who’d been right there with me, were SURE that the queen in he movie had siad “Mirror, mirror” … and I couldn’t prove them wrong until. Uh later, no videotapes became available.
    Cynthia, I would love and value your input on how the above incidents (from literally decades before “the Mandela Effect” is believed to have started happening) fit into anyone’s understanding of the “Mandela Effect.” How do you explain whatever was going on, in each of the above incidents in my life?

    • Thanks for sharing your experiences noticing other people being so perplexed regarding some of the very same Mandela Effect areas now capturing so much public attention. It sounds like the point you’re making between the lines might be something like: “Why were people mis-remembering things right from the start that I’ve not been confused about–in confusion areas that have obviously existed for decades?”

      Thank you for including mention of some cases where right from the start (your first exposure to each of these areas) you noticed you were the only one in the room with the memory matching historical records, whereas the vast majority of others seemed mysteriously mistaken–such as: Berenstain/Berenstein Bears; Robert Lincoln and his children; Bruce Springsteen’s bandana/cap; Snow White and Mirror, Mirror; and the kidney punch.

      I can relate to what you say, since I’ve sometimes been the “only one in the room” who remembered what a lesson said, while everyone else somehow missed that point–yet for me, these cases have not ended up being globally famous examples of Mandela Effects. So clearly there is something different going on for you, which warrants further consideration.

      I likely won’t be the best expert on what’s happening specifically to you, since I’ve only got the few examples you’ve mentioned, and I haven’t spent time learning more about how your perceptual differences from most, and why you tend to be “johnny-on-the-spot” observing these Mandela-Effects-of-the-future so early on, before they were on anyone else’s radar.

      One common misperception regarding Mandela Effects is the notion that most people will experience the same things shifting–the same reality shifts. In fact, more often it’s true that something like 10% of the population will remember carefully having learned, for example, to spell the word “d-i-l-e-m-n-a” instead of how most of us learned “d-i-l-e-m-m-a.” And another part of the misperception is that people noticing changes and reality shifts have to agree–while that is pretty seldom the case. Typically, the closer one is to a particular shift, the less likely you are to see it. This is why typically, we don’t have medical practitioners reporting they are seeing changes in human physiology, and why we typically don’t hear about South Africans agreeing with how weird it is that Nelson Mandela died twice, for example.

      I mention this, so you can gain a sense of appreciation for how it’s possible for some people to have actually carefully learned something entirely differently from you, and yes, you might indeed be marveling early on why they are so certain about something that does not match historical facts right there and then, some decades ago.

      I remember being quite young and sometimes being the only one who remembered past events very differently than historical records and how everyone else recalled it–typically related to events only significant and observed in my own family, such as a promise I heard my parents make to wood carvers in India on a family vacation in my childhood in the early 1970s. I was actually confused as to why my family wasn’t keeping their promise that I’d heard them make to take photographs of the furniture items once they were in the new house we’d been building, when my family recalled no such promise ever having been made.

      I mention this small-scale-reality-shift with me noticing I’m the one with the “weird” outlying memory so you can get a feeling of what that is like, and so you can pay attention now with regard to whether you ever noticed such experiences.

      Reality shifts and Mandela Effects are actually much more of a phenomenon of consciousness than anything that can (yet) be scientifically measured, so your awareness of what you remember and recall is pivotal, and you are thus currently the top expert on what’s going on specifically for you.

        Hello

        I just discovered your site.

        Early 2017 I experienced a Mandela effect myself. The British actor Gordon Kaye, who played the French café owner René Artois in the comedy series “Allo Allo”, died in January 2017, yet I remember reading an article years earlier in which his death was mentioned. I checked on the Internet to see if other people had the same memory and there were even people who remember his death being announced on the news.

      • Thank you for sharing your memory of Gordon Kaye’s death having been announced years before January 2017 in an article. While I’m not personally familiar with this actor, I’m sure quite a few people also likely recall something similar!

    Another example: I always remember HIPAA being HIPAA, as it is now. I e never seen HIPPA” before today. And I grew up knowing that Acts 5:30 sirs the word “tree” to describe what Jesus was hung on — although my family isn’t Christian, my parents (who both taught English) were able to show mess a kid (early 1970s) that the dictionary definitions of “tree” include any wooden or other solid item that is used to support weight (such as a “saddle-tree” which is the framework/support structure built into a saddle: it certainly isn’t a tree that grows saddles!) In fact, this was one of THE most common meanings of “tree” in the 17th century (when the King James Bible was being put together). Later on (early 1980s), I also found out that the original word being used in Acts 5:30 (the word that gets translated there as “tree”) is simply a Greek word that means BOTH an ordinary, growing tree AND anything wooden (it’s just the basic word for “wood” in tha5 language) … back when the Bible was being put into English, the word “tree” still commonly had multiple meanings,so it made sense to pick a mltoiple-meaning English word to translate a multiple-meaning Greek word. Knowing this, ever since the 1970s/1980s, I am not sure why I am “supposed” to think that “tree” in Acts 5:30 is somehow “new” … when it was “tree” in the Bible that my parents had in their house (when I was a kid in the 1960s and 1970s) was a Bible that had been printed in the 1940s (it was the one that my dad had used in college when he was taking a course on the Bible). How is anything in a 1940s Bible, tja5 I was reading in the 1970s, supposed to be “new”? … especially when the multiple mean8nfs of “tree” are nothing new because /a/ they documentably go back centuries, and /b/ I learned about those meanings, from documentable sources which still exist, _decades_ before the “Mandela Effect” is supposed to have existed?

    • I was trained and certified as a fireman in 2006, and emt basic in 2011. I specifically remember HIPPA, HIPAA, portability is a highly specific word, and I remember in 2015 when I got licensed in insurance starting to see HIPAA, which really threw me off. i didn’t know if medical training and insurance laws had different laws or something.

    Ive noticed many of these but some-the World Trade center, for instance, are blowing my mind. I thought I had just remembered wrong about Lincoln’s sons. I too had noticed our population seemed a standstill-Lathe of Heaven?

    Thanks, Cynthia, for putting any thought and time into your comment. I know very well, lifelong, what it’s like to be “the one with the ‘weird’ outlying memory “ — the difference between us is that my own “weird” and socially disdained memories match the facts. (And I getmgayed and harmed when this is proven to be the case. Why?)

    • I appreciate your taking the time, effort and energy to document and cite your experiences of being the odd-one-out who also just happens to have been on the scene early on, witnessing some of the more commonly (and recently) cited examples that some people (not all, but some) are noticing.

      I feel your first-hand reports are highly valuable, and you deserve respect and recognition for documenting what you’ve witnessed. I suspect some people who are feeling defensive about the Mandela Effect (ME) might be upset to hear your experiences, since they may feel that your experiences back up the explanation for ME involving “false memory.” And to many ME experiencers, it’s already 100% clear that the ME and reality shifts exist and are real, so they might be a bit too defensive.

      I’m 100% certain reality shifts exist, and I witness them regularly (including some real doozies ) and I’ve been researching this phenomenon for decades, so I’m not so defensive, and am truly happy to discuss this with you, because I love learning more about all sides of this topic. 🙂

        Cynthia I’m away from home right now (today was the funeral of my youngest sister, who has died at age 48: massive recurring cancers, once every treatment and intervention stopped working ) but when I’m back home next week I would look forward to discussing these matters with you: phone would be best, as it would be easier for you to ask me questions on details. If you need my phone number, it’s within the long sign-off at the bottom of all the e-mail you have from me.
