CERN, and Mandela Effect science

2022-07-26 CSL blues
Have you wondered if there is any way to prove the Mandela Effect is real, and not simply mis-remembering?  If so, you’re in luck, since scientists have just made significant progress in this area, in the same month that CERN fired up their Large Hadron Collider, sparking great interest in what effect, if any, this may have on Mandela Effect activity.
I’m grateful to have been contacted by Jason Koebler, a reporter for VICE Motherboard, who wrote an excellent article, Is CERN Causing Collective Mass Delusion by Creating Portals to Alternate Dimensions? An Investigation.
The ever-increasing interest in the topic of the Mandela Effect seems to have come to quite a peak this July 2022, with the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) firing back up on July 5th.  I have been watching to see whether we might witness an increase in new Mandela Effects being reported this month.  So far, I’ve not yet heard of people noticing remarkably new Mandela Effects, though I am witnessing a steady increase of interest in this topic.
Apparently, some physicists at CERN, including Clara Nellist, expressed concern regarding the surge of people’s concerns that CERN might somehow be contributing to the Mandela Effect.  While Nellist calls the Mandela Effect “mis-remembering,” this article’s author, Jason Koebler, recognizes that the Mandela Effect phenomenon is verifiably real.  Koebler references recent research studies conducted at the University of Chicago that describe an emperically observable phenomenon that persisted across many people with no clear explanation.

University of Chicago Mandela Effect Research

Fig 1 which image is realResearchers found that “there are certain images that elicit a specific false memory, despite high familiarity and confidence.” Their research study demonstrated that “seven familiar images from popular iconography have low memory accuracy, with a specific incorrect version consistently remembered across people.” These findings indicate that there is something about these logos that are being misremembered by large numbers of people for unknown reasons.  The pre-print of the University of Chicago paper is entitled, The Visual Mandela Effect as evidence for shared and specific false memories across people.
Fig 9 VME errorsIn their research paper, psychologists Wilma Bainbridge and Deepasri Prasad describe how they asked volunteers to identify famous logos or characters based on their memories, working with research volunteers through Amazon Turk. Prasad and Bainbridge showed study participants the actual logos and characters in lineups of slightly manipulated images, and then asked the participants to rate how much confidence they had in whether their specific memory of that logo or character was correct.  
What’s most fascinating about this research study is that the study participants proved that indeed, random research volunteers share a collective false memory of popular brands, logos, and characters–choosing the exact same ‘wrong’ images as the one that they remembered as being correct.  These ‘wrong’ renditions were selected and drawn even when people reported that they had a “high familiarity” with the image in question.
Not only did people pick out the same ‘wrong’ images from line-ups, but they also independently drew similarly ‘wrong’ images from memory, with the same ‘wrong’ characteristics.  While the researchers do not yet propose a mechanism by which this Mandela Effect phenomenon occurs, they suggest that “there might not be a universal explanation for why the Visual Mandela Effect occurs.”
When contemplating CERN and the Mandela Effect, as when considering just about anything, I recommend asking at every opportunity, “How good can it get?”

My Mandela Effect affected books

2022-07-26 CSL QJ AA AA2This past month, it came to my attention that a passage from one of my books that I’d received the most emails about is now–and apparently always has been–missing.  By missing, I mean I can find no trace of it anywhere.  And it seems likely to me that it’s gone missing for many years.
Aura AdvantageYou might well wonder why I would say such thing, let alone wonder how such a thing could be possible.  I’ll start by describing how this matter first came to my attention this past week.  I’d received a couple of emails from two different authors, and both email conversations prompted me to mention a certain memorable section from my book, Aura Advantage.  This was a very unique and unusual section of the book, where I describe how one day, I heard my salad telepathically communicate with me.  I used to get emails each year, up until maybe seven years ago or so, from people who were disturbed by the idea that salad might be sentient.  Typically, these readers had explained to me that they were vegetarians or vegans, and also that they were first startled and then somewhat horrified at the thought of anyone conversing with vegetables before eating them.  People are not writing to me anymore regarding this concern, and they haven’t written emails to me about this for many years now.  It seems the reason might be that my books no longer have anything like this in any of them.  That now-missing passage had been part of my book from when the first edition was published in 2003, up until possibly 2015–and I only noticed it’s missing this past month.
I next wondered if perhaps I might have been confused by thinking the missing passage was part of another book I’d written, so I carefully searched the original text files for all my books, including Reality Shifts and Quantum Jumps, and found no such passage anywhere.  When all logical possibilities were exhausted, the remaining leading explanation for what occurred is that my book has experienced a reality shift, such that now I just have memories that there once was a paragraph describing how my salad ‘spoke’ to me telepathically, and how reading this one paragraph used to be upsetting to some people to the point that they would write to me.
I’d love to hear from you if you remember reading such a passage in my book, so we can gain a sense of what people remember this missing passage used to say, and what you remember about it.  By sharing what you recall, if anything, we can gain further insights regarding how these kinds of reality shifts and Mandela Effects occur.

Quantum Jumps book changed

Quantum JumpsThis isn’t the first time I’ve noticed that something I wrote has changed, such that all I had was my memory of what I’d originally written and that was published in the book.  The first time I noticed that this had happened was when I was preparing to give my talk for the 2019 International Mandela Effect Conference in Idaho.  While preparing to give my talk, I wanted to include the short explanatory passage I’d included in Quantum Jumps where I provided insights to what is illustrated on the cover of the book–including a link between the very small world of quantum physics, and the physics of the very large cosmological galaxies, stars, and planets.  I was amazed that this passage was completely missing when I prepared my talk, and grateful that I’d be talking about the very phenomenon that could help explain it, to an open-minded audience who was genuinely interested in the Mandela Effect and reality shifts such as this:  The Science and History of Reality Shifts and Mandela Effects.
The change to Quantum Jumps would have happened between the time it was first published in 2013 and 2019 when I noticed it missing.  I’ve not (yet) seen it return to the book, but that is a distinct possibility, and something I’ll be happy to see if and when it ever happens. What I remember this passage stating is something like this:
As physicists Leonard Susskind and Raphael Bousso have suggested, the many-worlds interpretation of quantum physics and the cosmological multiverse are one and the same thing. 
The omission of a paragraph connecting the quantum and relativistic physics is a strikingly obvious change to the book for me.  It’s something so noteworthy that it’s hard for me not to notice.  If you remember that there used to be such an explanatory statement in Quantum Jumps, please contact me and let me know, since through such individual subjective observations with whatever details you remember, there is much we can learn about reality shifts and the Mandela Effect.
When contemplating how the Mandela Effect may be affecting books, as when doing pretty much anything, I recommend asking at every opportunity, “How good can it get?”
