MANDELA EFFECT TECHNOLOGY?
If you've been hanging around this website for a while you'll know that we discuss a lot of "strange stuff" with a heavy mix of "high octane speculation," and today we have strange stuff and high octane speculation in abundance.
But first, I have to set the stage for it a little bit. One of the "strange stuff" things that fascinates me and that I've blogged about is the so-called Mandela Effect. Briefly stated, the Mandela Effect is where a significant minority of a population remembers things differently than the majority of the population. The effect gets its name from the fact that a considerable number of people remember South African black nationalist leader Nelson Mandela as having died under different circumstances than the vast majority of people. Some people remember reports of him as having died in prison, while the vast majority of people remember him as having been released, and going on to become South Africa's first black president. The effect was extended as other people remember things or events differently, and yours truly is indeed an "experiencer" of the effect, having remembered famed White House reporter Helen Thomas dying much earlier and differently than the vast majority of people remember her passing. A close friend of mine remembers Richard Chamberlain - the famous "Dr. Kildare" of early 60s television fame - as dying. Still others - and again, I am one of them - remember celebrated actor Kirk Douglas dying before others do, and even remember his actor son Michael Douglas on late night television's Tonight Show talking about his father's death. The problem of the Mandela Effect is not that people "misremember" things, but rather, that so many are doing so, and doing so in similar ways of "misremembrance".
And therein begins the problem of the Mandela Effect: how to explain it without resorting to explanations like "mass hallucination" and so on. To my mind, the very fact that so many people seem to misremember certain events so similarly suggests that perceptions are being deliberately manipulated. One of my high octane speculations has been that this has been a kind of deliberate social engineering and physics experiment, to see if altered perceptions/observations of timelines can have real effects on the macro-verse in order to answer the question of whether or not observer effects can translate to the macroverse. If Dr. William Tiller's experiments are born in mind, the answer is an unequivocal yes. In any case, I've never abandoned that speculation, and indeed, today's submission by T.S. affords even more grounds for it:
Now if this article be true and not someone's practical joke, which we assume it to be for the sake of today's high octane speculation, note what this new technology actually claims to do; it claims that from one projection screen, individual pixels can be programmed to broadcast light to a multitude of people at the same time in such a manner as to allow individuals looking at the same screen to see different things. They're calling it - aptly enough - "parallel reality" displays, and the technology itself is the product of a "California based (where else!?!) tech company called Misapplied Sciences". Utilizing such a technology would allow perceptions of whole groups to be manipulated in different, and even mutually, contradictory ways.
I have therefore to wonder if some similar form of technology was in use in creating the Mandela Effects noted above? Consider the televisions of that era used electron guns creating electro-chemical reactions on television screens to create a "picture" that was scanned so quickly the eyes create the illusion of a moving picture. Would it be possible to create, in a region, a local broadcast that was different than elsewhere? A creepy example is afforded by the Michael Douglas movie, The Game, where a normal television broadcast of Daniel Schorr is "high-jacked" to have Schorr talking directly to Douglas through the latter's TV set. How could it be done? Given the primitive technology of televisions of that era, probably not through using each pixel as a multi-directional broadcast. One might be able to modulate an audio and visual signal through the power lines themselves in certain areas that would perhaps produce the effect seen in the movie.
But whether my high octane speculations with respect to the Mandela Effect have any merit or not, if the technology in the article is any guide, again the answer is an unequivocal yes.
See you on the flip side...
