The Mandela effect theory has been the talk of lots of young people on social media recently.
The popular phenomenon refers to a large group of people remembering some things that never really happened or remembering them incorrectly.
The theory first started taking action in 2010 when blogger and author, Fiona Broome, said she remembered clearly that former South African President Nelson Mandela had died in prison, she even claimed remembering clips of his funeral, when in fact he was still alive at the time.
“See, I thought Nelson Mandela died in prison. I thought I remembered it clearly, complete with news clips of his funeral, the mourning in South Africa, some rioting in cities, and the heartfelt speech by his widow,” Broome said.
Surprisingly, a lot of people seemed to share that exact same memory of Mandela dying in prison years earlier than he actually did. That was when Broome started a website called MandelaEffect.com to share similar examples of false memories.
Other examples of the Mandela effect theory are things like the man in the Monopoly game. A lot of people clearly remember him wearing an eye piece when in fact, he doesn’t. Also the Spelling of Rubik’s in Rubik’s cube, as many people believe it is spelled Rubix or Rubic’s.
Some people suggest this is mere coincidence and that there is no such thing as a Mandela effect, whereas others believe in the theory and in the possibility of a parallel universe.
All in all, it is definitely something to think about. Watch the video to find out more:
