What’s the Meaning of the Mandela Effect?

2021-06-28 Cynthia

The Mandela Effect is now mainstream enough to qualify its very own topic on the TV show Jeopardy TV show, and as the topic for the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle.  While some media sources might maintain “there’s nothing to see here” since supposedly it can all be explained as mass misremembering, a steadily growing number of people feel quite differently.  I asked the question on several social media platforms, “What does the Mandela Effect mean to you?” and I was delighted to receive so many insightful responses. 

What the Mandela Effect Means to Me

I’ve dedicated decades of my life’s work to exploring the phenomena of reality shifts, quantum jumps, and the Mandela Effect–and related aspects of mind-matter interaction.  I’ve been publishing online first-hand accounts of reality shifts and Mandela Effects since the 1990s, in what is possibly the oldest and largest such publicly available archive.  Recently, I’ve been part of monthly IMEC Open Tables live-stream events on the International Mandela Effect Conference’s YouTube channel.  What I haven’t talked much about–until now–is why am I dedicating my life’s work to researching this subject?

The simplest answer to this question is that I’ve had a lifelong dedication to and fascination with the nature of reality–and consciousness.  Thanks to a number of my own personal life experiences, I’ve been keenly aware that my thoughts and feelings definitely influence physical reality.  We now see scientific evidence to support that this is true, in such phenomena as the placebo effect, which I write about in my book, Quantum Jumps.

The more complete answer is that I believe the Mandela Effect helps show mankind a way that together, we can collectively experience changes to our shared reality–including changes to historical events.  We can experience miraculous reality shifts, quantum jumps, and timeline jumps together. 

What the Mandela Effect Means for All of Us

This past month I asked people in several different places on social media, including my YouTube community, my Facebook page, and various Facebook groups. I got some wonderful responses.  Here are some that express how so many of us are feeling about this topic at this time.

“… it means that we create our realities.  We can see/know beyond what we’re being told is truth.  Life is what you make it.”

“… it means I shifted my reality, and Mandela Effect episodes are an artifact of the ones I left.  It’s evidence to me my intentions to level up were successful.”

“I personally just find it to be something fun and exciting in my life; I know the deeper meanings, however I get a kick out of seeing a supposedly solid reality changing in front of my eyes.”

“They show me how I/we are progressing and expanding into different timelines and alternate/parallel realities.  It makes me way too excited every time I notice something, because I feel it is a sign I am doing something good and moving in a positive direction.”

“I generally think that the universe, All That Is, etc… is trying to get my attention.”

“… it means learning how to survive in almost a new environment.  At first it was like I was propelled into a different dimension, but as time goes by I am adapting to it.”

“It means we can shift this reality into a more love-ful and aware state when the collective will truly wishes for it.  It gives me hope.”

“For me, so-called ‘reality’ exists, but not the way we think it exists.  It is plastic, mold-able.  There is no cnocrete, solid, objective we can point to and say, ‘this is the only thing that is real.’–That is a mental, socialized construct that we all want to agree on, so we can feel comfort.”

“My opinions keep fluctuating as I keep trying to make sense of it; it means different things as I grow through them.”

“We are coming together as timelines merge and solidify.”

“Merging and aligning with highest Golden timeline.”

“I think it is a natural part of our evolution into higher dimensions–the effect will become more frequent and speed up to where our thoughts can manifest instantly and our lives are symphony of synchronicity. It will be accepted as our everyday reality that the past, present and future shift instantly. I had a glimpse once of what it will feel like as this speeds up and, from my current perspective, it’s dizzying! Like stepping into the flow of a fast moving stream and letting go!”

“I see them as breadcrumbs letting us know that we are moving in the right direction.  The first ones I think bring us to a personal dark night of the soul, so to speak, and generally force us to work through some things on our own–mainly because it takes some personal work to realize that we aren’t crazy and that it is real.  It then allows people to decide which road they want to take.  Do we believe that it is a confabulation (as the powers that be want you to believe) or do we realize that we create our reality and we can decide, as Cynthia Sue Larson likes to ask, ‘How good can it get?’  I’ve had a lot of fun with asking kids about if they could create any animal, what would it look like?  And the results are pretty amazing! We have shifted to realities where some of them actually exist!  And we couldn’t find proof of them when I had asked them.  So it can be super exciting!”

. . . . . . . . . . .


This last comment reminds me that when I saw the movie Napolean Dynamite, I remember the main character drawing something in a sketchbook, and being asked what he was drawing.  He replied that he was drawing a “Liger,” which was a combination of a lion and a tiger.  I remember looking it up at the time, to see if such an animal existed, and seeing at that time that the movie came out in 2004, that it did not.  But this year, I noticed seeing a real living Liger, that actually is a mix of lion and tiger. 

This in turn reminds me of the perennial wisdom from indigenous wisdom keepers, that all ideas come from Nature, and that this is the true source of Original Thinking.  This idea of “original” is thus a bit different from what we often think of, in terms of presuming human ingenuity and creativity are the source of novelty.  I highly recommend meditating on this other perspective of the meaning of Nature being the true source of all “original thought”–in a kind of complete and absolute compendium of all possible ideas and notions.  To glean a sense of what this is all about, I recommend Glenn Aparicio Parry’s book, Original Thinking.

Renewed Hope

With respect to the ideas of merging timelines, the Golden Timeline,  idealism, optimalism, philosopher Nicholas Rescher’s idea of Axiogenesis, the Hopi Prophecy rock, and Revhumanism–I also love the Mandela Effect for the way it is helping us recognize how some global changes might be able to resolve otherwise seemingly insoluble problems.  Solutions can arrive as if they had always been there.  And that’s definitely part of what I envision as my best possible future reality.

Which of course reminds me that I also recommend in any and all circumstances that we all keep asking my favorite question, “How good can it get?”   Let’s find out!

Thoughts on Simulation Theory and ‘Glitch in the Matrix’

I recently saw the documentary, “Glitch in the Matrix,” where filmmaker Rodney Ascher asks the question “are we living in a simulation?”  He includes film footage of Nick Bostrom, and Philip K. Dick, as well as others intrigued by this idea.  Here are some highlights from the documentary, from my perspective.

Philip K. Dick and the Mandela Effect

I’d been looking forward to see “Glitch in the Matrix,” since I’d heard that it references the Mandela Effect.  One of the highlights for me in watching “Glitch in the Matrix” was the inclusion of Philip K. Dick’s 1977 talk in Metz, France, entitled, “If you find this world bad, you should see some of the others,” around the time the first Star Wars movie came out in theaters.  Philip K. Dick (PKD) gave this talk three years after having an extraordinary experience in his life on February 3, 1974.  After that experience and other epiphanies, PKD’s  interest in the idea of other parallel possible realities became much more pronounced.  In his 1977 talk in Metz, France, PKD expressed his expectation that some people will recall other possible histories.  In 1977 when Dick gave this talk, I was experiencing reality shifts and what would come to be known as the Mandela Effect, and I am favorably impressed by his comments about the significance and importance of people noticing alternate histories.  By the year 2010, the term “Mandela Effect” would come to be acknowledged as a worldwide phenomenon.  In his 1977 talk in Metz, PKD said, “We are living a computer programmed reality, and the only clue we have to it is when some variable has changed, and some alteration in our reality occurs.  We would have the overwhelming impression that we were reliving the present deja vu, perhaps in precisely the same way, hearing the same words, saying the same words.  I submit that these impressions are valid and significant and I will even say this such an impression is a clue that it’s in past time point a variable was changed–reprogrammed as it were–and that because of this, an alternative world branched off.”

While I certainly appreciate the view that abrupt changes such as reality shifts and Mandela Effects to what has supposedly ‘always been true’ might seem similar to what we’d expect to see if we were living in a computer-programmed simulated reality, the Simulation Theory itself seems more like a description of the way we sense and experience the world, rather than a comprehensive and complete true theory of the nature of reality.

NPCs and Nothingness

The “Glitch in the Matrix” documentary shows how some people have experienced a sense of vast nothingness, when going beyond awareness of others around them.  It makes the point that such an experience of nothingness can feel quite bleak.

I had a profound experience of feeling a sense of nothingness during the time I underwent a Kundalini awakening in 1994, which was part of my spiritual awakening.  At that time, I felt a deep loneliness far beyond anything I’d ever felt before or since. I recognized in that experience that any kind of existence disconnected from all relationships with others is a truly intolerable sensation.  I found my way through that experience by knowing at a deep level that I refused to be alone, and by knowing that other realities and other worlds exist, so therefore I would make contact with other consciousness(es).  It seems to me that the meaning of noticing such vast nothingness is to remind us that we need relationships with others in a very deep, profound, and fundamental way.

Some people believe NPC (non player characters) exist, such that some people are not truly inspired nor motivated, and “Glitch in the Matrix” presents this concept–along with the potential dark side of possibly making a mistake in treating others as NPCs in a given moment, which we can come to regret when we were not acting with kindness nor compassion. When I was a little girl, I had an experience where I was shocked to witness that people–including my own family members–sometimes move through daily like on autopilot, as if they are not fully and completely present and sentient and actively making choices in each moment.  I write about this idea that so many of us are running on autopilot in my book, Reality Shifts. I discuss the importance of getting past our masks and facades, and our tendency to think, speak, and act on autopilot.  We can all be ‘called in’ to be more fully present in our lives, and this can be part of our spiritual evolution, both individually and collectively as a species. 

GANS and Human Purpose

“Glitch in the Matrix” presents the idea of GANS – Generative Adversarial NetworkS–where two (or more) Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems are in competition with one another as they create simulations.  One is the FORGER whose task is to create human beings who look enough like humans to fool someone. Another AI system is called the INSPECTOR, whose job is to tell the difference between fake and actual people. Some feel it’s possible that the human role in Simulation Theory is to fine-tune and improve the Simulation according to this GANS process. 

While I agree with those in the “Glitch in the Matrix” documentary that humans are certainly capable of channeling and editing inspirational ideas, it seems clear that without any underlying sense of meaning and story and relationships, these simplistic roles would seem to hold little long-term interest for most humans.

The Dreamtime and Plato’s Cave

“Glitch in the Matrix” points out that in the movie, “The Matrix,” Neo keeps his money and special things in a book, “Simulacra and Simulation,” which is a tip-off at the start of that movie that all is not what it seems. There is a long tradition within indigenous societies of acknowledging dreams within dreams, and ‘the Dreamtime.’ This idea of dreaming the world into existence, with layers and layers of dreams and awakenings is a much more ancient concept even than Plato’s cave, to the point that there exist words to express how seemingly real physical reality is just ‘maya’–just illusion

When Neo first awakens, and wonders why his eyes don’t work, Morpheus explains, “Because you’ve never used them before.” This matches what we know scientifically, as I’ve shared in a podcast I did with Dr. Donald Hoffman:  Perception, Truth, and Reality with Donald Hoffman.  Dr. Hoffman describes how our sense of the world through our perceptions is not truly real—our experience of true reality is filtered.  Donald Hoffman talked with me about his interface theory of perception, in which what we typically assume to be “out there” is not necessarily reality–but rather something akin to the desktop user interface on a computer. And just as we don’t need to execute machine language commands in order to send an email or delete a file, biological evolution has been proven to favor perceptual fitness over truthful completeness and accuracy of perception.  As Hoffman writes, “… to experience is to construct, in each modality and without exception,” and new findings in quantum physics and quantum biology increasingly provide scientific evidence to show this is true.

Similarly, in the allegory of Plato’s Cave, the true light of the world is much more brilliant than the shadow world as seen within the cave. When Plato comes back into the cave, he sees his friends are still watching the shadow play, giving one another acknowledgement for being first to spot what’s going on. This allegory of the cave reminds me of how anyone who has enlightenment experiences feels transformed when returning to everyday life. Quite often, it’s impossible to interact with friends, family, and colleagues the same as before the epiphany and transcendant experience. It’s also challenging, if not impossible, to explain or properly convey the experience fully to others.

Will We Recognize Our Reflection?

In “Glitch in the Matrix,” Jesse Orion expresses feelings of frustration when noticing he’s been stuck in digital worlds that aren’t going so well. And then when he gets out of those games and simulations, he’s noticed he was still stuck in a reality that’s not going so well, either. And he can’t help but draw parallels, since “the grass is dead on both sides. It’s like they’re ‘quick-patching’ reality,” because (just like in glitchy games), real life is not going that well.  “People are broken. Cosmologies are broken.”   This sounds to me like “glass half full” kind of thinking, where whatever we focus our attention on, we will see more of whatever we happen to be focusing on. 

I notice that humans are becoming more capable of instantaneous manifestation, at which point our ability to maintain good emotional and energetic hygiene (keeping to good and nurturing thoughts) is becoming ever more essential to our personal and social well-being. We can start to observe how we can experience more of whatever we focus our attention and energies upon. Many of us have habits of dwelling on complaints, worries, fears, and observations of lack—rather than nurturing gratitude, appreciation, and reverence. 

PKD writes about worlds which may be inhabited by just one protagonist, or who may have others who join them in their peculiar world, or those others remained in their own worlds throughout. PKD wrote on these themes of ‘pleuriform pseudo-worlds’ because he, “was sensing the manifold of partially actualized realities, remaining tangent to the actualized one—the one that the majority of us, by consensus gentiem, agree on.” I love how PKD was so tuned in to the way that it seems people can—and often do—experience simultaneous parallel realities. I love how this matches some recent experimental findings in quantum physics, in which observational devices even at the same place and time can witness different events. This seems to clearly indicate that there may be no such thing as one ‘objective reality.’

Another character in “Glitch in the Matrix” asks the question:  “When we know we may be in a simulation, how do we ethically deal with others—when we also know others are there like me, who aren’t simulations? How do I deal with someone who’s behind a false avatar, but who I really want to communicate with?”  He also points out: “Simulation theory seems to kind of solve problems, but it really makes the problems more poignant, and in your face.” 

Again, this is such a perfect juncture to invite ourselves to find a story line we actually wish to inhabit—it’s such a great opportunity to care more about our relationships with other people, animals, plants, things, and the Earth and moon and sun and stars and sky.  When we make the most of our epiphanies through lucid dreaming and recognizing how our physical senses merely show us a kind of illusory facade that is not complete reality—we can become the change we wish to see in the world.  We can become more caring, more compassionate, more kind.  We can care more about our relationships with others. 

Divine Awakening

“Glitch in the Matrix” mentions that PKD’s friend, Tom Disch, first suggested to him that his experience on Feb 3, 1974 sounded like “Enthousiasmos” by Elijah, and PKD liked the idea, and found it pleasant.  The experience of feeling inspired by God seems uplifting, and like it would have given PKD a feeling of spiritual epiphany, which seems to have been the case.

One character in “Glitch in the Matrix” points out that: There are fundamental metaphors we have about reality, such as “life is like a journey,” and “Waking up from a dream”—and shifting between ontological realities (sometimes quite abruptly, or with intense emotions) is a fundamental, cognitive experience—is “stitched into us.” 

Yes; humans do seem to be wired to experience many levels of awakening, in order to discover many levels of identity within ourselves. Perhaps the greatest unasked question, and the question that potentially can do the most for us in terms of answering all our questions and solving all our problems is simply, “Who am I?”  

This question of identity can enable us to begin to realize our true identity is involved with co-creating our experienced dream-within-a-dream; and also that we have many levels and layers to our conscious identity.

Want to jump into another world? Maybe you already have!

Have you ever wished you could jump into another world–another reality?  Maybe you already have!

There is an unspoken assumption that we all agree that there exists one consistent set of true historical events–and therefore can expect that all our individual memories ought to correspond to this singular, objective reality.  That’s an unspoken assumption, and it’s not really questioned.  We tend to expect that all of our individual experiences and memories map onto that one, singular, objective reality.  But what if that assumption is not true?

What if we exist within a holographic multiverse of ever-shifting realities, in which we sometimes find that rather than one fixed set of historical facts, we can find ourselves remembering something different from what official historical–culturally correct–records suggest?

If we do exist within something like a holographic multiverse of ever-shifting realities, we could expect to witness what we now know as the Mandela Effect.  The Mandela Effect is the phenomenon where we actually do remember foods such as Haas avocados, and Stouffer’s Stovetop stuffing, for example. I live in California, and I always pronounced the name of these California avocados as “haaas” and I would have pronounced the word “hass” if that was how it was spelled, but I didn’t do that because it wasn’t spelled that way.  And now, it’s supposedly always been spelled “Hass” avocados.  With Stovetop stuffing, that’s a case where I clearly remember the TV commercials that very clearly stated this popular product was Stouffer’s stovetop stuffing, but now supposedly it’s always only and ever been Kraft stovetop stuffing.

And, it’s important to point out that if we are living in a holographic multiverse, as I suggest in my book, Quantum Jumps, we could occasionally expect to witness dramatic changes–such as witnessing ourselves or others undergo spontaneous remissions from injuries and illnesses.

For those of us witnessing reality shifts, quantum jumps, and the Mandela Effect, there is no need to provide “extraordinary evidence,” since those of us who are experiencers are not simply making “extraordinary claims,” but rather are simply sharing the facts of our personal experiences.  Thousands of first-hand case studies of these observations have been documented with dates, geographic locations, first-hand reports, and commentary since 1999 on the RealityShifters website.  Our ‘evidence’ exists in our awareness–in the form of qualia, which is associated with the so-called “hard problem” of consciousness.  How can you prove the concept of our unique, subjective experiences of consciousness–and reality–that we see in qualia?  This is called a hard problem, because it is not a matter that can be easily translated to materialistic form.  Similarly, we cannot prove the concept of the Mandela Effect, since it is a similarly hard problem.

As widespread as the assumption of a singular objective reality is, it directly conflicts with the idea from quantum physics that “quantum physics prohibits a single history,” as well as some recent quantum physics experimental findings that two observational devices at the same place and time can literally observe two different subjective realities.  Also, experience of the Mandela Effect is gaining traction and gaining ground.

Quantum Physics Prohibits a Single History

The purpose of the science of physics is to understand how the universe behaves by studying the behaviors of matter and energy through space and time.  Through such scientific study, physics has found some truly paradigm-shifting principles in quantum physics.

Physicists Stephen Hawking and Thomas Hertog ca-authored a paper in 2006, claiming that the Universe has no singular or unique beginning.  Hertog states, “Quantum mechanics forbids a single history.”  Hawking and Hertog referred to their theory ‘top-down’ cosmology, because instead of focusing primarily on seeking a fundamental set of initial physical laws under which the cosmos unfolded, it starts ‘at the top,’ with what we see today, and then works backwards to see what the initial conditions must have been.

The Observer’s Perspective Effect

C. Brukner’s 2019 paper described recent physics research experiments showing that two observational devices set up at the same place and set to make and record observations at the same time can–and sometimes do–make very different observations.  When we see how this physics experiment challenges objective reality, we see experimental results providing validation that we can expect to sometimes witness alternate histories from what others observe.  And this is exactly what we are observing when we notice reality shifts, quantum jumps, and the Mandela Effect.

The ‘Hard Problem’ of Consciousness

The hard problem of memory has a precedent in the so-called ‘hard problem of consciousness,’ because it delves into areas that materialist science based on material realism cannot adequately address or describe.  This hard problem has to do with why and how we have qualia, or first-person experiences that feel like something.  This is referred to as a ‘hard problem’ in contrast to such ‘easier’ matters of explaining various cognitive functions including:  learning, memory, verbal communication, and perceptual integration.

What I love about the so-called ‘hard problem’ is that it reminds me of the philosophical question, “Why is there anything at all?”  By going directly to contemplate the idea of nothingness–and somethingness–we find ourselves contemplating a cosmos outside Time and Space.  What might exist in such imagined realms?  When I imagine what lies outside of time and space, I get a sense that there exists a sense of existence in the form of wisdom of being–the inspiration behind knowledge and meaning.  We gain a sense of our true selves in the form of pure consciousness.

How can we Recognize Adjacent Realities?

Returning to the original question:  What if you want to jump into another world?  Maybe you already have!  Once we recognize that we indeed likely have jumped into other worlds, other realities–how can we learn to recognize when we are next to these adjacent realities?  We can be quite close to other possible realities in every moment.

You can ask yourself how you would feel when you are adjacent to another reality?  What are the kinds of qualia–the internal consciousness, “hard problem” stuff that can’t yet be fully recorded in accordance with methods and practices that are part of materialistic science.  There is no way to objectively document or measure such experiences, because they are so uniquely individual to each of our experiences.

But the good news is that you can tell when you are adjacent to another possible reality.  Just as you can tell when something good is cooking in the other room, because you can smell it–similarly, you can feel and sense when there is a good reality adjacent to your own.

And if you sense that there isn’t yet any such good reality, then you can change your internal emotions and energies to make yourself much more positive.  You can feel gratitude, and feel grateful.  You can feel reverence, and choose to experience Revhumanism (rather than Transhumanism).  You can become aware of the amazing opportunities in every moment, as you keep asking, “How good can it get?” and you can keep finding out.  This works even when life is as chaotic as it sometimes gets, such as during this pandemic year of 2020 going into 2021.

Acknowledging our ability to make different observations from different perspectives, we do well to remember to keep asking, “How good can it get?”  Let’s find out together!

Choosing Revhumanism in Apocalyptic Times

At this time with robots, Artificial Intelligence, and the Singularity on the horizon we’ve reached a crossroads for the future of humanity—where we can either choose to put faith in technology to inspire us and lead the way (Transhumanism)—or choose to put faith in life force energy in each of us, the Earth, and the Cosmos (Revhumanism).

Long Prophesied Decision Point

Technologies are not inherently evil—the risk of loss of sovereignty comes from idolizing technologies as higher, greater, or more than a living conscious Cosmos, or God.

We can see we have reached a decision point that was prophesied thousands of years ago by many spiritual faiths and traditions. A picture of this decision point was literally carved in stone on the Hopi Prophecy Rock near Oraibi, Arizona. This rock tells the story of three previous human worlds being destroyed when people became greedy, worshiped technology as if it were a god, fought each other, and forgot the original purpose of humanity to honor the Earth as the source of life and sustenance.

Two paths go forward into the future; the higher path places faith on technologies, at the expense of caring for each other and the Earth, and it fizzles out and disappears. The lower path continues on indefinitely, and is for those humans who continue to care for each other and the Earth.

Transhumanism and the Singularity

Biologist Julian Huxley coined the word transhumanism in 1927, writing:
“the human species can, if it wishes, transcend itself.  We need a name for this new belief. Perhaps transhumanism will service: man remaining man, but transcending himself by realizing new possibilities.”

Modern-day transhumanism focuses on technologically augmenting human bodies and brains. Transhumanists seek bio-hacking solutions from genetic engineering, robotics, information and nano technologies to bypass natural biological limitations—including mortality. The promise of transhumanism ranges from wearable tech, to prosthetics, all the way to immortality through uploading a person’s neural network to a computer system.

The technological Singularity is envisioned as a point in time—perhaps by 2045—where futurists such as Ray Kurzweil, expect super-intelligent machines with artificial general intelligence to attain awareness at levels that humans cannot unplug or reverse.

This topic is near and dear to my heart: I’d love to see humanity grow into its best qualities, without surrendering agency of free will through over-dependence on technologies. It’s one thing to be shocked to realize we don’t know a friend’s phone number because we’ve come to depend on our mobile phones and devices to remember such things for us, and it’s quite another to reach a point where we stop thinking for ourselves regarding decisions that matter the most.

What is humanity’s ultimate endpoint?

While the Singularity may be unavoidable—mind-matter cyborg transhumans existing in a mechanical cosmos are definitely not my view of the pinnacle of human evolution.

We can envision our optimal future being created by us, based on what we collectively need, love, and imagine. Revhumanism is a philosophy of harmoniously living and co-creating with a living, developing Cosmos—with reverence for the Earth, and other beings.
The Latin “rev” relates to ideas of reviving, regaining, recalling, and growing strong and young again. “Rev” also stands for reverence—a quality that inspires us to live up to our truly highest potential of seeing and respecting the inspiration, light, and consciousness that all of creation shares. Revhumanism invites humans to return to honoring the Earth as the source of life and sustenance.

Revhumanism involves relating with reverence, humility, and empathy with others, with the Earth, and with the Cosmos—inviting us to actuate high-level sovereign agency.

Sovereignty is a key concept in incarnational spirituality, recognizing our sense of living our life with purpose and for some reason. We have an awareness of having some original intent for our life. Sometimes we can get caught up in drama, and forget the purpose we are living with, but we can access and remember this original intention and purpose.

We can observe our thoughts and feelings at higher levels of self, without ‘having buttons pushed.’ We can rise above ‘fight or flight’ reactive responses, and view events free from anger or anguish over the past or anxiety about the future—feeling connection with our Best Possible Future Selves who are loving, joyful, fearless, compassionate, and reverent.

Revhumanism acknowledges that humanity is part of a living, growing Cosmos, with everyone intrinsically having a transcendant divine nature. Revhumanism invites us to live true to our highest potential of embodying more wisdom than cleverness; more hope than cynicism; more humility than hubris; more empathy than apathy; and more reverence than insolence. Revhumanism represents a radical invitation for each of us to be the highest level embodiment of consciousness we wish to see in the world. When we see everyone and everything from the perspective of reverence, doors to adjacent possible realities open where there were no doors before.

Evidence of Human Evolution in the Mandela Effect

Evidence exists that humanity is actuating high levels of sovereign agency that we experience through increased awareness of alternate histories we call the “Mandela Effect.”

The Mandela Effect shows us that histories can change—that our memories of past events can differ noticeably from currently agreed-upon facts. Many people thus remember things that now officially never occurred, such as the heart being located slightly on the left, rather than in the center of our chests, for example. People are now sharing memories of different histories, and sometimes experiencing reality shifts where things appear, disappear, transform, and transport, as well as changes in the experience of time.

Insights from the Mandela Effect provide clues that we all naturally possess ‘quantum super-powers,’ that are best employed in accordance with spiritual wisdom. Shared experiences of Mandela Effects, reality shifts, and miraculous changes to reality demonstrate what profound differences observational perspective can make.

The majority of Mandela Effect experiencers are Empaths; Empaths (aka: Intuitive Feelers) comprise 25% of population, yet experience 75% of Mandela Effects. We see evidence in support of this concept of Subjective (rather than Objective) reality, in recent quantum physics experiments showing observers at the same place and time can witness different events.

We each have the ability to access much larger levels of self than we ordinarily acknowledge. At these levels of self:
— we can gain awareness of potential future events
— we can experience simultaneous possible realities
— we can recognize ways perspective influences reality
— miraculous reality shifts can be experienced

Humanity is actuating high levels of sovereign agency, with natural ‘quantum super-powers’ that are best employed in accordance with spiritual wisdom. Insights from the Mandela Effect and recent studies in quantum physics provide clues by which we can better envision a positive future for humanity founded in wisdom, connection, kindness, reverence, and love.

Choosing Revhumanism in Apocalyptic Times

“Apocalypse” is a word derived from the Greek verb apokalyptein, meaning “to take the cover off,” and is associated with times of unveiling and revelation. We are living through times of great change and unveiling in which our choice of perspective and what we put our faith in—can make all the difference in the future worlds we next experience.

With Humility, we acknowledge there exists a hidden order;
With Empathy, we see through the eyes of our heart;
With Reverence, we remember we are all connected.

Acknowledging our best possible future selves, we remember to keep asking, “How good can it get?”

Envisioning Our Best Possible Future Selves

We can gain a special kind of inspiration, guidance, and intuitive insight by envisioning we’re receiving help from our Best Possible Future Selves.

Lessons from Future Self

One of my favorite ways to stay positively focused, optimistic, and inspired is to stay aware of the presence of loving, divine wisdom ever-present in our lives.  And this presence can be highly personal and trustworthy–it can be a relationship with your Best Possible Future Self.

For all of my adult life, I’ve been aware of the reality of my Best Possible Future Self, since meeting my future self back in 1978 when I was a teenager.  She float-walked into my bedroom, entering through my mirrored closet doors, non-verbally telepathically communicating comforting messages of love.  I thought I was just dreaming, but later found that some special items–hand-written love letters–were missing from the secret place I’d hidden them in my roll-top desk’s lower drawer.  Her visit was a mystery to me, and is still quite enigmatic and ephemeral to this day–yet one of the lasting gifts to me from her appearance is my faith in our ability to nurture our relationships with our Best Possible Future Selves.

For many years I thought my future self would return those letters to me at some point in time.  I still have the same roll-top desk, providing opportunity for the return of these items, no questions asked.  Yet so far, this has not happened.  Some conceptualizations of the way quantum physics might allow for time travel via closed time-like curves can provide an explanation for that, since it’s not necessary for the teenage version of me that I remember to have met an older future version of me who I remember.  In fact, I might never have the experience of being the Future Me who float-walks through that mirror closet door at all.

My current view of my very real first experience with my future self is that my future self was providing gentle guidance to me, without directly influencing my free agency and free will to do whatever seemed right for me.  I sense that my future self was giving me unspoken permission to ‘change my stars,’ and not consider myself locked into any situation, but rather instead to acknowledge that change is ever-present, and I can best honor changes in myself and others by learning to not be overly clingy, but instead ready and willing to let go.

The advantages of such relationships with our future selves are truly enormous; we can benefit from guidance, inspiration, protection, and support by someone who knows and understands us best–our Best Possible Future Selves.

Connecting with Best Possible Future You

Typically any time we are feeling weighed down by whatever the problems of the moment seem to be, our idea of who we are in that exact moment is not the fullness and greatness that at other times we know ourselves to be.

Honestly, there are many versions of ourselves, with many moods and personalities and characteristics.  We see some of these when we feel we are being pressured by constraints of time or resources–and we get a chance to rise above those challenges, or perhaps fall back into familiar patterns.

You might acknowledge that there is a part of you who is fun-loving and enjoyable to be around.

There is a possibly more hidden part of you who is loving, fearless, radiant, joyful–coming from a vantage point of infinite and eternal wisdom, far above the everyday perspective of typical human everyday life.

Your Best Possible Future Self comes from this Higher Self vantage point, with the ability to provide you with wonderful guidance, brilliant inspiration, and steady emotional and energetic support.

Just knowing that your Best Possible Future Self might be truly real, and might truly be accessible by you–can be life changing.

.  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .

As always, I encourage you to ask my favorite question any time you get the opportunity:  “How good can it get?”

JOTT documentation of early personal Mandela Effects

Just One of Those Things

Two researchers, Barrington and Jinks, have documented personal Mandela Effects and reality shifts as “jotts,” “jottles,” and “DOP,” providing well-documented case histories of these events well back into the 1950s, with anecdotal evidence going much further back than that.

This past month, Jeff Mishlove, author and host of the excellent program, Thinking Allowed, asked if I had heard of a book called JOTT written by Mary Rose Barrington.  Until Jeff Mishlove mentioned this book, it had not been on my radar at all.

JOTT:  When Things Disappear… and Come Back or Relocate–and Why it Really Happens was published in 2018.  I love how it normalizes the reality shift or personal Mandela Effect phenomenon as merely being “Just One of Those Things,” or “JOTT.”  Author Mary Rose Barrington was born in London in 1926, studied law, and served as Vice President of the Society for Psychical Research.

Excellent documented evidence of MEs back to 1950s

Mary Rose BarringtonOne of my favorite things about JOTT is that it was written by a researcher born in the 1920s who was keenly aware that instances of objects disappearing, reappearing, teleporting, and appearing-out-of-nowhere were matters of common knowledge over a century ago.  JOTT references several articles on “Jottles” written by Barrington, going back to the early 1990s; Barrington was clearly fascinated with this topic.  Some of the detailed reports included in JOTT occurred as early as the 1950s, and Barrington pointed out that this phenomenon has a history going much farther back even than that.  Barrington writes,

“In our time, we seldom hear reports of sensational macro-phenomena said to have taken place during the 100 years starting mid-nineteenth century, when many people believed that such things were possible and that they could be evoked by the human endeavor, usually with input from the supposed spirit world.” [1]

Many of the first-hand reports described in JOTT came from submissions following an article from the magazine, “The Unexplained,” that described what we now recognize as personal Mandela Effects or reality shifts, asking readers to please write in with any of their experiences.

Where have “Jottles” been all my life?

Looking back to the list of references in the back of JOTT, I was stunned to see several articles on “Jottles” written by Barrington all the way back to the early 1990s, documenting what PMH Atwater referred to as “Reality Shifts” in a chapter by that name in 1999 in her book, Future Memory.  I did not find Atwater’s work until well after I’d written my book, Reality Shifts, yet Atwater’s take on the subject closely paralleled mine.

Tony JinksNow that I know to look for other terms for reality shifts and personal Mandela Effects, I see there are several articles about “jottles” published by Barrington going back to the 1990s, and a 2016 book about Disappearing Object Phenomenon, also known by the acronym “DOP,” by author Tony Jinks. [2]  Jinks apparently was aware of the terms “JOTT” and “jottles,” but apparently not the terms, “reality shift” nor “Mandela Effect.”

Truly we are living in interesting times, when the research about the same topic is being conducted in different niches. Both Barrington and Jinks have apparently been completely unaware of reality shifts as documented by myself and PMH Atwater in our books Reality Shifts and Future Memory, as well as the ever-expanding awareness of the general public of personal Mandela Effects.

Dr. Tony Jinks is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Social Science and Psychology, Western Sydney University, NSW, Australia. Tony is the President, Australian Institute of Parapsychological Research. He has a background in Neuroscience and has published in the field of neuroscience, perception, parapsychology and paranormal belief and experience.

JOTT and Jottles Typology

Barrington’s typology for what we now know as personal Mandela Effects and reality shifts and what she called “Just One of Those Things” or JOTT or jottles includes:

Flyaways – objects vanish
Turn-Ups – objects appear
Windfalls – objects appear that were not previously yours
Comebacks – objects reappear after having disappeared
Walkabout – something comes back, but not where you left it
Trade-Ins – something has been traded for what you’d previously had

Barrington attributes the JOTT phenomenon to being related to Cosmic Mind, and recognizes that these experiences are relatively widespread, and have been around for quite a long time.

DOP Typology

Australian psychology professor and author Dr. Tony Jink’s typology for what we now know as personal Mandela Effects and reality shifts and what he calls Disappearing Object Phenomena (DOP), involving 385 case studies that he finds convincing, trustworthy, and reliable  Dr. Tony Jinks gave a 2017 talk in which he specifically rules out that experiencers of Disappearing Object Phenomena are psychologically distinguishable from non-experiencers.  That is to say that experiencers are not suffering from such possible psychological issues as:  transcience; telescoping; errors of commission (suggestibility, illusionary correlation, confirmation bias); perceptual blindness (ie: inattentional blindness); altered states of consciousness (hallucinations, autohypnosis); encoding errors (“absent mindedness”);  memory distortion (pre-existing beliefs); and loose associationism.  Typology of DOP includes:

Disappearances – like Barrington’s Flyaways
Appearances – like Barrington’s Turn-Ups and Windfalls
Reappearances – like Barrington’s Comebacks and Walkabouts
Replacement – equivalent to Barrington’s Trade-In

Jinks notes that DOP events are isolated incidents–they are discontinuities.  Jinks contemplates possible causes of DOP such as:  invisibility; teleportation and/or wormholes; parallel universes;  dimensional shifts; external agents; and human-centered causes (such as witnessed in psychokinetic abilities, for example).  Jinks’ favored explanation is human-centered causes, unwittingly caused by the experiment themselves, for various obscure subconscious reasons.  Jinks recognizes that these DOP incidents are characterized by a quality of Seamlessness, and he therefore likes the idea of conscious observation (by multiple consciousness states) that are responsible for ‘collapsing reality,’ so we have the consensual reality we have now, such that the new situation appears as if it has always been that way.

Reality Shifts & Personal Mandela Effect Typology

Those of us who have been communicating and conversing about personal Mandela Effects and reality shifts note the general categories suggested by Barrington and Jinks.  After more than 20 years of collecting hundreds of first-hand reports of reality shifts from around the world on the http://www.realityshifters.com website, we expand the typology to include:

Disappearances – like Barrington’s Flyaways
Appearances – like Barrington’s Turn-Ups and Windfalls, including buildings
Reappearances – like Barrington’s Comebacks and Walkabouts
Transformations – equivalent to Barrington’s Trade-In & Jinks’ Replacement, plus changes in body physiology (hair, eye color) and healing
Changes in experience of Time – time loops, traveling fast, meeting future self
Alive Again – people previously reported deceased are alive
Teleportation/Tunneling – people & objects teleported past or through objects
Synchronicity – events align meaningfully

Well worth note is the observation reality shifts and personal Mandela Effect often go far beyond a simple matter of ‘objects gone missing’ and there is, in fact, an awareness that some large objects–such as buildings, mountains and trees–have been noticed to have disappeared, appeared, reappeared and transformed.  Many people are witnessing changes to the human physiology and anatomy–such as repositioning of the heart and kidneys.  Some people notice we are now in a different part of the Milky Way galaxy, such as Orion, instead of Sagittarius.

 

As always, I encourage all of us to keep asking my favorite question, “How good can it get?”

Boggling delayed choice participatory universe, horoscopes, and Mandela Effects

Boggling delayed choice participatory universe

When I play the game Boggle with friends, we’ve often been amazed at the way we find some words so consistently.  Sometimes for three consecutive games in a row, we might find the same word, such as “toe” for example.  While playing Boggle via email over the internet during this pandemic, my friends and I noted that there seemed to be a subconscious awareness of health and coronavirus topics–which perhaps comes as not too much of a surprise.

I also noticed that some of the words that I was finding had some kind of fire theme going on.  I figured of course, living in California, fire safety is on my mind with regard to keeping dead woods cleared out of the garden, and getting on top of weed and grass abatement, too.  When noticing the times that my friends and I find the same word for three or four games in a row–that’s so amazing to me when it happens, since it seems to indicate those words might always be there–or perhaps more accurately, it’s our shared expectation of finding them that ensures those words reality shift their way into each and every game.

Physicist John Archibald Wheeler asserted that we live in a Participatory universe, in which the measurements we choose to make, truly matter.  Wheeler also proposed a series of experiments to test the notion that light somehow “senses” the experimental apparatus in the double-slit experiment it travels through, and adjusts its behavior to fit.  While Wheeler’s musings were constrained to laboratory settings only, many of us observing such things as mysteriously recurring Boggle words might well wonder to what degree quantum physics is involved in our regular daily lives.

Participatory personalized horoscopes

Some of us might have already taken a similar look at the accuracy of some horoscopes–or pretty much any kind of intuitive divination system (such as the I Ching or Tarot cards), which can be uncannily specific.  From a quantum physics-operating-in-daily-life point of view, we can consider the idea that the horoscope actually might be tailor-written just for you and me, just for that exact moment when we read it.

I don’t expect the horoscope was written once, and then read the same by everyone at all.  This is such a good example of why individuals can believe in ‘silly things’ such as astrology, when subjective reality rules the universe!  If and when we compare notes with one another, we force an observed system to comply with our chosen entanglement–and at that point, the wave functions can again collapse.  I’d expect those cases of increased entanglement to ‘force the collapse’ of the wave function in such a way that some people would actually notice these reality shifts, with some of their horoscopes changing right before their very eyes.

I expect that is what is occurring with many reality shifts and Mandela Effects—it’s a natural matter of increasing the number of groups of people all ‘comparing notes’ about various observations, and Nature making corrections to bring alignment and agreement of ‘the facts’ to match ever-increasing numbers of populations of people coming to take a look at some particular thing.  Whether that thing is Boggle board, that day’s horoscope in the newspaper, or a brand logo or name, all the increased number of observers is bound to make a difference, and certain to lead to some observed shifts in reality.

All of this, of course, can remind us to keep asking my favorite question, “How good can it get?”

The Virus, Memory, Mandela Effect connection

Human memory came from an ancient virus

We can glean amazing insights from viewing the way memories and viruses work–and the extraordinary relationship between viruses, memory, and miracles–at this time when neurologists say that our memories come from an ancient virus.

An international collaboration of researchers from the University of Utah, the University of Copenhagen, and the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in the UK discovered something surprising about a protein called Arc, which is essential to long-term memory formation.  It seems that some 350-400 million years ago, an ancestor to the retrovirus, the retrotransposon, injected its genetic material into a land-based, four-limbed creature, leading to the development of the Arc protein.  Scientists have been amazed to discover that it has very similar properties to how a virus infects its host  stating in their article in Cell,

“The neuronal gene Arc is essential for long-lasting information storage in the mammalian brain, mediates various forms of synaptic plasticity, and has been implicated in neurodevelopmental disorders,” and, “little is known about Arc’s molecular function and evolutionary origins.”  [Pastuzyn 2018]

Using electro-microscopy, scientists realized that the way Arc assembles itself appears very similar to the way the HIV retrovirus operates.

The Arc protein behaves like a virus and serves as the platform allowing neurons to communicate with one another.  Scientists found that mice lacking the Arc protein had difficulty remembering things they had learned within one day’s time, and their brains lacked plasticity–where the brain can easily absorb new knowledge and skills.  Arc behaves like a viral capsid–like a hard, outer shell which is hollow inside and carries a virus’s genetic information from one cell to another.  Arc mimics viral capsids by encapsulating its RNA in order to transfer it from one neuron to another.

 

Evolving with viruses

Virologists are noticing how the original novel coronavirus, covid-19, almost immediately mutated into three different strains, and within a few weeks was observed by scientists in Iceland to have over 400 mutated versions, eight strains of which have been found to be infecting humans globally at this time.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is a betacoronavirus, like the SARS and MERS coronavirus, with a structure that is recognized by cell biologists as being 80% similar.  While coronaviruses had once been considered to only affect birds and mammals, the SARS, MERS, and COVID-19 epidemics have demonstrated that this virus family can jump species barriers, and spread to humans.

Author William S. Burroughs theorized that words and language represent a type of virus that transformed the throats of humans who spoke those words.  Author Philip K. Dick commented in “The Selected Letters of PKD, 1980-1982” on William S. Burroughs consideration of the existence of some kind of information virus:

“I cannot accept Burroughs’ view that we have been invaded by an alien virus, an information virus, yet on the other hand I cannot readily dismiss this bizarre theory as mere paranoia on his part.  I think he is onto something real and important, and that his statements do more good–far more good–than harm (that is, he states the problem correctly, although perhaps his analysis of the cause is faulty; still, merely to be aware of the problem is to achieve a great deal).  Now, I have been able to find accounts in ancient times of what seems to be a thinking or perceptual dysfunction or perhaps the thinking or perceptual dysfunction.
…Burroughs may have indeed detected an “information virus” or something like an information virus, but my supposition is that, if you grant its existence, it is of long-standing.  World mythology supports this.  Not just Christian.
Where Burroughs and I sharply disagree is that my supposition is that if–if–and information life form exists (and this is indeed a bizarre and wild supposition), it is benign; it does not occlude us; on the contrary: it informs us (or perhaps it has no interest in doing either, but simply rides our own information traffic, using our media as a carrier; that is entirely possible.  That I myself saw this living information in the spring of 1974 is not something I wish to claim; on the other hand, I will not deny it. The issue is important, vital, and also elusive.  If you grant an occluding information virus, are you not then yourself occluded in your very analysis of it, as well as your perception of its existence?  There is a paradox involved.  I’m sure you can see that.”

 

Mandela Effect-affected memories

Much of who we see ourselves to be comes from our memories of who we think we are, and the stories we believe we are living in.  Without long-term memories, we’d eternally be in the moment, free from expectations of ourselves or others, and likely devoid of much in the way of long-term plans.

How fascinating, now, to realize that our very sense of self, and ability to have long-term memories comes thanks to an ancient virus.  Scientists note that:

“Eukaryotic genomes are littered with DNA of viral or transposon origin, which compose about half of most mammalian genomes.”  [Smit, 1999]

When it comes to the Mandela Effect, many of us recall different historical events as well as differences in just about everything in existence including:  human physiology, plants, animals, books, foods, movies, music, names, places, buildings, aircraft, cars, and more.  Clearly we are still finding fundamental processes by which information storage in the brain operates, and we have yet to discover biological mechanisms supporting our ability to witness reality shifts, Mandela Effects, quantum jumps, and miraculous changes.  When we look at Nature through a quantum lens, we can see evidence that natural systems are capable of such seemingly impossible achievements such as:  organism mutations within a single generation of bacteria; astonishingly high efficiencies of operation seen in photosynthesis; amazingly accurate navigation of robins; and perfect synchronization of starlings in flight.  We can gain from such observation insights into the rich mystery of mind-matter interaction, guiding further investigations with my favorite question:  “How good can it get?”

Thriving in the time of coronavirus

Cynthia Sue LarsonHow to thrive in the time of coronavirus

This current coronavirus situation has changed many aspects of daily life overnight, and at times has looked like a war zone, in terms of casualties–yet even the time of coronavirus, it can be possible to thrive.

Never before have so many humans been doing the same thing at the same time–ceasing regular daily work commutes, and staying confined to home for the foreseeable future.  People on every continent and country now share a common intention to slow, stop, and reverse the rapid spread of a novel coronavirus around the globe.  Thanks to the internet, it is possible for most of us to stay in communication with others, and succeed in rapidly modifying our social behaviors and lives.

level upHumanity has survived similar pandemics that have arisen almost like clockwork once every hundred years.  Our most recent was the Spanish flu, prevalent around 1920.  During this pandemic, we are better able to try a variety of approaches to dealing with the challenge, including washing hands, wearing face masks, working from home via the internet, bolstering our immune systems with good nutrition, and practicing social distancing.

Perhaps most remarkably, we are now living in an extraordinary time of collaboration–for sharing resources, ideas, and ingenuity.  We humans are all in this together, coming up with our best way to get through this pandemic together, even though we may be physically isolated.  We can still brainstorm and collaborate, side-by-side.  We can notice what is working well in each region and nation, and learn how we can make use of all aspects of what seems to be working well–both for our physical health and financial well-being.  This is a time to share information, share ideas, share resources, and think about how good things can get–rather than getting hung up on aspects of other cultures that don’t work for us.  There is much to be learned here–and there is much we can share.

Why is this happening?

I don’t know that any of us can say with absolute certainty why we are experiencing this, but that doesn’t stop us from wondering.

This year, 2020, feels to me like an especially interesting year of communication between Nature and humanity.  Some point out it feels like Nature has sent us to our rooms, to think about what we’ve done.  Others point out this is an opportunity for humanity to move into more harmonious balance with Nature–to move more into receptive, Yin/feminine ways of being, and out of such dynamic Yang/masculine ways of being.

Henry Stapp and Cynthia Sue Larson

Henry Stapp & Cynthia Sue Larson

Some suggest we are receiving an answer to some kind of unspoken question.  Physicists such as John Archibald Wheeler and Henry Stapp remind us that when we ask questions, Nature answers.  And if the answer we are collectively receiving is this novel coronavirus, we might well now wonder, “What was the question?”  When we view this as a year of experiencing  “an act of communicating divine truth”–which is the definition of ‘revelation,’ according to Miriam Webster–we gain a sense that something new is being revealed to humanity at this time.We are experiencing a time when natural forces are slowing human busy-ness and business, resulting in people spending more time at home with families and in nature.  We are experiencing a shared sense of solidarity and community across great distances and time zones, thanks to availability of the internet.  We are being given an opportunity to better appreciate everyone and everything we truly love in this collective “time out.”  And perhaps most importantly, we’re being given an opportunity to experience a Great Awakening.

How can we thrive amidst a global pandemic?

We cannot bend Nature to our demands in this time of Great Awakening.  The single most important thing we can do is view unfolding events through the eyes of love, not fear.  We can recognize that we choose when and how and what we pay attention to, and that we can (and do) have the ability to literally change the world.  Those of us who have been meditating regularly can share calm compassion through our every word and action.  Those of us who have faith can share our awareness that there exists something bigger than each of us, and that by finding ways to best serve others, we can feel the greatest sense of joy imaginable.

Some people wonder what best to do while waiting for the storm of contagion to swirl through our communities.  As a matter of fact, there is.  Focus your attention on whatever news you can find that is positive and uplifting.  And if you can’t find any positive news, go out and make some of your own.  Find some way to help someone else, and even the smallest positive act can serve to help pull you up by your proverbial bootstraps.

The world appears very different to caterpillars than butterflies

Some of the concerns voiced by various authors sound off to me, when they emphasize the significance of dark forces and such.  I view “the powers that be” to be divine God and angelic forces, which I view as always being in charge.  I view this time of Great Awakening to be a time of discernment with regard to our true sovereign nature–to acknowledge within each of ourselves that we are divine beings, and that all our gifts always come from God.  Discernment brings us an unfolding awareness and sense that our true selves are much bigger than we typically realize.  We are capable, through meditation, for example, to begin to notice that we can observe our thoughts and feelings, and that therefore we are the Observer of those thoughts and feelings–one level higher–and not our thoughts and feelings (just automatons, on autopilot).

And during this time of coronavirus-coccooning, sheltering inside and staying ‘healthy at home,’ many who are accustomed to living lives on autopilot are experiencing a bit of rest from mindless consumption–with possibility for meditative contemplation.  And much like caterpillars transforming into butterflies, many now have new opportunities to rise above old assumptions of limitations and constraints.

Master our minds

Everything can be viewed as a lesson; every experience can be considered as presenting an opportunity. Challenging times provide us with opportunities to master our mind, and envision the possibility that the Universe is with us every step of the way.

Most of those of use who are M.E.-affected are aware of multiple timelines. Just as the parable about “which wolf do you feed,” we now can choose which timeline(s) we support. In quantum physics language, we are aware that there is not just one ‘objective’ reality, but rather subjective reality (“Physics experiment challenges objective reality“). So different observers can literally be at the same place and same time and witness different events. That’s how Nature is showing us she works.

This time of the coronavirus presents us with a unique opportunity to listen deeply to our authentic gut feelings, heart-felt emotions, and where our ‘random’ thoughts may go–since how we integrate between these various levels of being makes a tremendous difference in how we channel universal energies through us, and what we subsequently physically realize.  When we are integrated, and choosing to observe the world through the lens of love, not fear, we can rise above victim consciousness and master creator consciousness.

Victim / Regular Dreaming Consciousness

Victim/Regular Dreaming Consciousness corresponds to such beliefs as, “I have limited resources and limited personal power.  Things happen to me beyond my control.  I must fight for control at all costs, while fixing blame externally, in order to survive.  I can prove that wrongdoing has occurred and that I have been unfairly injured by unfolding events.  There exists real and present danger and great potential future threats that I am fearful of.”

Creator / Lucid Dreaming Consciousness

Creator/Lucid Dreaming Consciousness corresponds to such beliefs as, “I am intrinsically connected to others in ways that cannot be measured, yet which are the basis for meaning, value, and purpose in my life.  I can cross the threshold from Egoic fearfulness into my greater identity, when acknowledging that I am not my thoughts and feelings–I am the Observer of thoughts and feelings.  And as the Observer, I can choose in every experience how I respond.”

Raise consciousness with Mandela Effect Revelations

Most everyone on the planet is now aware that this year is like no other.  Humanity has dealt with pandemics before, such as Cholera, and the Spanish flu of a hundred years ago.  But this time, perhaps for the first time, people all around the world are sharing the collective experience of sheltering at home.

What was the question?

This year, 2020, feels to me like an especially interesting year of communication between Nature and humanity.  Physicists such as John Archibald Wheeler and Henry Stapp remind us that when we ask questions, Nature answers.  And if the answer we are collectively receiving is this novel coronavirus, we might well now wonder, “What was the question?” 

If we view this year as being a year of experiencing revelation–a year of experiencing “an act of communicating divine truth,” which is the definition of ‘revelation’ according to Miriam Webster. 

IMEC 2020:  Please watch and share new video shorts!  

Now that billions of people are focusing attention on prayer and meditation, 2020 is turning out to be a year when the majority of people on Earth are beginning to realize both a sense of deeper connection, and a dawning of awakened consciousness. When people wonder about how weird this year feels, and begin to wonder about the true nature of reality, they will start seeing reality shifts and Mandela Effects.

This year’s IMEC conference is live-streaming for free from Connecticut in the USA the weekend of June 5th-7th.  Fifteen speakers will be presenting insights into “Revelations of the Mandela Effect”:

Regina Meredith is our keynote speaker at this year’s IMEC event planned to livestream free on the internet the first weekend of June 2020.  Other speakers include:  Christopher Anatra (“the Quantum Businessman”); Sean Bond; author Eileen Colts; author Nicole DeMario; author Dale DuFay; Canadian artist Kimberly Lynn Hanson; Jerry Hicks (“DarkWolf”); Cynthia Sue Larson; Akronos Mago; Evan Maitraia (“moneybags73”); Eva Nie (“Once Upon a Timeline”); author Lauren Connell Pavelka; author Jan Engels-Smith, and author Shane Robinson (“Unbiased and on the Fence”). 

The International Mandela Effect Conference (IMEC) YouTube channel will soon begin posting one new short (15 second to about 1 minute long) video a day, and we’re inviting each of you YouTube creators to share these video shorts in your own videos. This is our opportunity to inform the world about our Mandela Effect community, forged in our individual dark nights of the soul, and now coming together to one brilliant combined radiant light.
