What is the Mandela Effect and how did it all start? The Mandela Effect is like a false memory except on a global scale. So when people remember something, such as someone dying when they’re actually still alive. That’s how the Mandela Effect started, by everyone remembering a man named Nelson Mandela who supposedly died in prison on July 23, 1991, but in reality died on Dec 5, 2013.
Many conspiracy theorists like Shane Dawson, believe that the Mandela Effect could happen for a probable different amount of reasons such as the existence of a parallel universe, time traveling, aliens, the Government, or even the Illuminati! Don’t believe in such conspiracies? Here are some possibilities of why this isn’t some silly little hoax!
- Parallel Universe
Men have only traveled so far out into the Universe, so why would a Parallel Universe not exist? It is said that the universe that we live in has switched with its parallel universe and that is why people have false memories, because we remember what happened from the original Universe.
2. Time Travel
One of the biggest theories in the Mandela effect, as well as many other conspiracy theories, involve Time Traveling. What does time travel have to do with the Mandela Effect? Theorists believe that time travelers exist. Maybe not from our time, but somewhere far into the future and every time a time traveler uses their time machine they change history. However, it only changes small little things that affect today’s history, just like the butterfly effect.
Why is it always aliens? No one really knows if aliens exist, but for some odd reason, people have a tendency to blame aliens for every unnatural phenomenon. So could aliens be behind the Mandela Effect? Probably not, but there’s always a slight chance.
4. The Governments
Everyone knows that the Government loves to hide things from the world! So could the Mandela Effect be one of the Government’s many secrets? What is the purpose behind it all? What history are they trying to cover up? So many unanswered questions!
5. The Illuminati
Everyone knows who the Illuminati are, but does everyone actually know who the Illuminati are? No, and no one ever will. The Illuminati is a secret organization but is very much a real thing. So nobody really knows what they actually do or what they’re capable of. They sound a bit sinister if one thinks about it long enough! So who is to say they aren’t using mind control to cause the Mandela Effect?
