Debunking The Mandela Effect: Do You Really Know The Truth?

Has it ever happened that you undeniably remember an event going on in a certain way? Also, you share it with others only to find out it didn’t happen that way at all?

This is a typical lapse of your memory, but what if others remember the event in the same way as you?

Theorists have often tried to explain this phenomenon through the means of alternate realities.

People in today’s world believe that there prevail multiple realities in which occurrences undergo in a somewhat discrete manner, and we can sporadically “slither” through them without realising, this way we have memories that are different from what really happened in our reality.

There are many other instances where this is applicable. For our pop culture fans, Forrest Gump said “Life was a box of chocolate,” not “is” and Darth Vader said “No, I am your father,” not “Luke I am your father.”
