Goofs

At some point, Mulder starting with the concept of another universe, says that we could live in another dimension. But this is not the same thing. As we know, there are four dimensions but as theoretical science goes there could be eleven. Nevertheless, no matter how many they are, they all happen here not in another universe. So we are already living in them the same way we are living in the four others but without feeling them. See more »

Finally! A mainstream network show sheds light on this.

The Mandela Effect is real. Whether you consider it a government conspiracy, alien manipulation, mass psychosis, or shared delusion, it doesn't matter. It's a real phenomenon, and because of the disturbing number of people in the tens of thousands who have experienced it, the cause is less important than the effect itself. It is assumed that many many more people have been affected but don't know it yet because they've simply not heard fo the Mandela Effect yet. Search YouTube for Mandela Effect. Check out the list of over 200 very specific memories at alternatememories.com. Once you're convinced, go to mymandela.club to spread the word by whichever means you're comfortable with. Talk about this! It might just be a quirk of human memory, but why are the memories so specific? And why do so many people from around the world share them?
