The Mandela Effect – Definition

The Mandela Effect is when someone has a clear memory of something that never happened in this reality, but there is residual evidence that it did. It is called the Mandela Effect because many people have clear memories of Nelson Mandela dying in prison in 1983 rather than in 2013 when he was a free man.

We’re not talking about false memories here. Many people have the same memory of something that apparently never happened. How can so many people get it wrong? Some of these Mandela effects can be explained but most of them can’t.

There are many theories as to why the Mandela Effects are happening, including parallel realities and the theory that we are all inside a computer program.

Whatever the cause, these Mandela Effects are very real to thousands of people.

Take a good look at the videos on this site and make up your own mind if this is a real phenomena.
