The Mandela Effect – One of the Creepiest Conspiracy Theories

While recently perusing the internet instead of studying, I came across something that chilled me to my very core.  Most people are probably familiar with The Berenstein Bears, a series of books about a family of bears who teach life lessons to young children.

Who could forget such well written and unique characters as Mama Bear, Papa Bear, and Brother Bear?

I’d never been a huge fan of the Berenstein Bears, but I’d certainly seen them a lot throughout my childhood.  I probably even owned a book or two.  There was nothing especially memorable or unique about this series except…

Wait a minute, something seems weird here.  Why do the Berenstein Bears seem weird?

berenstein 3

What the heck is weird about this?  I don’t…OH MY GOSH.

THAT IS NOT AN E!

I just learned a few days ago that The Berenstein Bears are not now, nor have they ever been, spelled with an e.  They are not The BerenstEin Bears, but the BerenstAin Bears.  And that is how I got introduced to the first conspiracy theory that I’ve been somewhat willing to believe in years.

Welcome to The Mandela Effect, one of the creepiest things on the internet.

The Mandela Effect is a theory put forth by an author and paranormal consultant named Fiona Broome.  The Mandela Effect tries to explain the reasoning behind the fact that many thousands of people have clear memories of common events or items that contradict the truth.  For example, despite the fact that The Berenstain Bears have always been spelled with an A, many people vividly remember them them having been spelled with an E.  According to Ms. Broome, a parallel reality exists where the Berenstein Bears were spelled with an E, and there has been some kind of merger / cross over between that reality and the one we currently inhabit.  A common alteration to this theory (which I find equally intriguing and possible) is that someone has traveled back in time, and this caused a butterfly effect which made small changes to our timeline.

Let’s take a step back here.  When I look at this:

File:TheBerenstainBears.jpg

It fills me with a serious dread that something is very wrong.  I clearly and vividly remember that the Berenstain bears were spelled with an e.  Seeing it spelled this way just seems unnatural and hints that something isn’t right with the world.  But logically, I know there’s a simpler explanation than parallel universes and altering timelines.  -stain is not a common ending to names, whereas -stein is.  (Think Einstein and Frankenstein, two names kids are exposed to a lot.)  It makes sense that many peoples’ brains would play a trick on them and misremember the name.  But The Mandela Effect wasn’t just created to explain The Berenstein Bears.  It was actually named after another very commonly misremembered event: Nelson Mandela’s Death.

In reality, Nelson Mandela died on December 5, 2013.  Yet many thousands of people remember him dying in prison in the 1980s.  Here are a few comments from The Mandela Effect’s website:

Both my wife and I remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison. Included in this memory are the funeral snippets on TV and a legal flap over book rights involving his Widow.

I also remember reading the newspaper and all the whoopola about Nelson Mandela dying on tv. I remember the banners at his funeral.

I saw this subjected posted on another site with a link to this site. My mom and I both also “remember” Mandela dying in prison…

There are plenty of other examples of The Mandela Effect  Many people vividly remember Billy Graham passing around 2009, being taught that there were more than 50 states, and seeing a portrait of King Henry VIII which was never actually painted.

Many people remember this portrait having a turkey leg and goblet.

Again, I consider myself a very skeptical person.  Logically I know that all of these false memories are most likely due to our minds playing tricks on us.  But still, for many people seeing that King Henry portrait or Berenstain Bears fills them with a sense of dread.  Maybe there are actually parallel universes out there or someone did manage to travel back in time and make some changes to our timeline.  You would think the changes would be more widespread and many more people would share the false memories, but who knows.

All I know is that if you’re alone on a rainy night and want to get creeped out, you should read about the Mandela Effect.

  1. Quietjinker1, nothing I wrong.
    The Mandela Effects are just one of the glorious ways to show you and everyone that life is not what you have been told. Life is more than what you believe. Life is not what you are being taught through entertainment, news and leaders. Life is like a box of chocolates. Life is to be cherished adored and loved.

    1. I agree! I watched the JFK assassination supposed idea that Jacqueline Kennedy killed her husband and it’s all photoshop trickery in my opinion and, believe me I watched it over and over again. I was in 5th grade history class, I mean sitting in school the day it happened so I didn’t see it live, but, I babysat all weekend and just sat in front of the tv watching it, very mesmerized. But Jackie just held onto him as I recall and then freaked out, as would be natural and tried to get out of the car from sheer horror at what just had happened. Not the reaction of a coldblooded killer. The picture that really freaked me out was. On the plane where Lady Bird is smiling and Johnson has his head turned and looked like he was smiling too. Jackie just looks like she’s in shock not smiling as they suggest. Why does everyone have to be so creepy all the time now!

I was a student at Ithaca College when the news of his death was read by an announcer at either WICB or WVBR. After briefly discussing what his life had been about, the announcer played the ‘Peter, Paul, and Mary’ song “The Great Mandala” in his honor; a song I had never heard prior to that news announcement. I know this happened because of the song having been played! When I heard later that he had been released from prison, I just figured that the news report had somehow been erroneous.

    1. You aren’t alone in your memories of a time much different when you recalled one version of events, only to have that memory blown away. Granted, I never followed the many news articles on Mandela. However, it doesn’t mean that I don’t believe you because i really do. There is a collective force out there that thinks that they can gradually alter things in a subtle manner & the entire human race won’t notice. However, God made us humans as a curious lot so at least some of us would be immune to the time altering effects & then seek out like minded people to share our recollections of altered events. So, do not be discouraged if you are told that you are simply confused. There definitely is a large number of time displacements with various events. I know because my recollections confer with the majority of other like-minded people such as yourself.

  15. The Mandela Effect is a natural event that has been happening for hundreds of years but 9/11 has caused a shift in the way people think and now this has accelerated making it easy for the masses to see. It is a giant step in our evolution and a rise in our consiousness. Some have consciously shifted from one dimension to the other even our night sky and internal organs have changed ever so slightly. Basically parallel earths are collapsing to create one highly evolved world and certain people are trying to stop this happening. They can’t stop it but they can pull info out of a collapsing world and pass it off here to fool people into staying in their reality. This is a positive thing that many have known about for years but for some it will cause fear and confusion and it won’t be helped by some who try to deceive.

  22. Today is the first day that I have heard that the mandela effect was not the idea of a lot of people getting together and desiring/believing in something hard enough and it will then change the world for the better. Now that I’ve actually seen a you-tube video that mentioned it and had a pic that was showing intertwined timelines, I see that it is an easier explaination for my ‘bad memory,’ that I’ve had since I was very young, than saying that it was like I was a ‘slider’ without the wormhole from the 80’s-90’s TV series “Sliders.” The only sign that I can remember at this time that implied it was a physical transfer of timelines was in 3rd or 4th grade, when I brought a ruler from home that I had gotten the previous year to school. The ruler had presidents of the United States of America listed in order on the underside. Everyone kept laughing and asked where I got the ‘fake ruler’ from since some of the names were incorrect and others were in the wrong place. Ever since then I have normally just stated that my memory must be bad and that must be why I remember what ever it is that I remembered as being different. Even if it is remember a song as been from my youth when it is now a brand new release, yet being able to sing it word for word with it playing on the radio. Unfortunately, if you repeat something to yourself over and over, about your capabilities in a negative fashion, you will make yourself believe/become it and so my memory has when it comes to names, numbers, and some specific details of information.

I can’t help but feel this “Mandela Effect” is anything more than a “side effect” of mental auditing … proof that our brains are being turned to mush so that we, as a society, are more willing to believe and agree with any suggestions presented to us as fact, such as recalling false memories without a shadow of doubt.

  31. My first what the hell? Moment that something was odd and a possible slide was when I went into a Volkswagen showroom about a decade back and saw a poster of all the nameplate logos they used from the start of the company, including the Nazi wartime ones. Until that time, I simply thought the modern logo was just a slight logo change, as does happen occasionally. they All had a split between the V and the W. Whilst I remember growing up, and every VW logo I recall seeing, and this goes all the way up to the mid 90s for me, NEVER had a split between the V and the W.
    Many other examples of this, that, at the time of noticing a change, was just chalked up to modern updating of logos and the like. As happens all the time, but, when digging, many of these changes seemed to have never occurred. This isn’t faulty memory, I have an uncommonly good memory for such things, and can often explore my own past quite clearly back to the age of 2.

    I only came across this Mandela Effect as a name for what I’ve been experiencing yesterday, but it does make a lot if sense.

    While I am not really worried if I am sliding around a bit in the multiverse as a possible explanation, as this may be a natural thing, and I would be resigned to it. I am more concerned with the possibility of an edit scenario. If it is an edit scenario, which I would consider less likely.
    eg why would they even bother changing up the little stuff like logos and the like, unless it is a side effect of really large changes to the fabric of reality, that is much more disturbing.

    Either way, this tells me that I may have more control over my own universe than I had previously thought, and plan to make changes accordingly.

I totally agree with about 90% of the comments being made of people remembering things differently. Most people, out of fear, try to debunk or rationalize away these changes. As a mother and having watched Curious George swing around by his “nonexistent” tail I can say that he looks utterly naked without it. My three children quite agree they loved watching him and are very upset that his tail is now missing. I believe reports are that he never had a tail. They also ate jiffy peanut butter by the jar-full’s and will never accept that it is now called Jif peanut butter. When the timeline is changed our reality is also changed which is why people do not remember having their names changed such as Sally Fields now being called Sally Field. She is still listed under Sally Fields on the internet but when you look at her VHS and DVD movies to buy one, her name is listed as Sally Field. People argue why doesn’t she not know her name has changed, and it is because when the timeline changed and her name became Sally Field that is all she has ever known it to be. I cannot rationalize away all of the hundreds of changes that have taken place nor do I believe that “Home Depot” I have frequented for years has always been called “The Home Depot”. I’m not saying that people don’t have fallible memories, it is true we do; however growing up and seeing the same things over and over hundreds of times, believe me you notice when something changes. Is there anything we can do about these changes? As I see it, we can just keep investigating and share information with each other. We need to believe our own memories especially when they are joined by hundreds of others!

  33. I was at mass on a Saturday evening recently a few weeks back and the first reading was from Isaiah 11:6, the famous passage with the “lion and the lamb.” This is a Catholic Church. Well as we all know the “lion” is now the “wolf” but anyway in the missalette we were using the line is now “and then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb.” GUEST? like the lamb is gonna bring out the best china. Logo changes is one thing, Bible passage changes point to something evil. You can google “and then the wolf shall be a guest of the lamb” and many mainstream entries come up. A topic not covered by the msm as we all know.

  34. Another one. In the 1972 horror flick “Frogs” (1972) starring Sam Elliot and Ray Milland the older woman Iris who is seen chasing a butterfly through the woods with a net dies in quicksand. That was the original scene we all grew up on. Now in the DVD she instead gets bit by a rattler and dies. However in the trailer you can clearly see her dying in quicksand and also find that scene in a google image search. Wouldn’t be that big a deal except in my research I’ve come across no explanation for the two versions of that scene. Google has a very compensating search engine. You can type in “Honda self-driving cars”, “Hyundai self-driving cars”, “Jetpack Aviation”, “Jetman Yves Rossy Grand Canyon”, “wireless chargers” and other assorted things and actual stuff comes up and on YouTube as well. “Winter’s Bone” (2010) – Jennifer Lawrence’s breakout role with Oscar buzz two years before “Hunger Games”, that one I never knew about so yeah memory is a very complicated and faulty mechanism. Too much junk in the mental attic. I blame the Kardashains;)
