Are we living in an alternate universe?
We could be living in another universe
Do you happen to know the song ‘We are the Champions’ by Queen? If so, just sing the end line of the song.
Did you happen to sing, ‘We are the champions of the world’? Well, that’s not how the song ends. This is one example of the Mandela Effect.
The Mandela effect was discovered by Fionna Broom in 2010. The “Mandela Effect” is what happens when someone has a clear memory of something that never happened in this reality. The Mandela effect is the theory that as well as parallel universes existing we switch between them all the time without realising.
Ask yourself these 3 simple question:
- What does Darth Vader say to Luke when he reveals he is he father?
- In Snow White, is the famous line “Mirror mirror on the Wall”?
- Febreeze or Febreze?
Here are the answers:
- “Luke, I am your father.”
- No, it’s “magic mirror on the wall”.
Did you get them right?
There are many other explanations to suggest there isn’t a Mandela effect and that we are not living in an alternate universe.
For example, humans love repetition and it is psychologically proven to enchant the brain. This can explain why so many people remember the end as ‘We are the champions of the world’.
Another explanation is that certain famous phrases would have been passed down centuries so people might have recited the phrases incorrectly meaning everyone remembers it a particular way. For example “Mirror mirror on the wall” is the phrase that most people of the past 3 decades use but older people remember it as the original, “Magic mirror on the wall”.
What do you believe? Do you think we’re living in an alternate universe?
