This, if true, is the single most freaky occurrence ever -- with world-shattering implications. 

 

I didn't grow up here so I never encountered this children's books series, but apparently some folks who did, and who are of its generation, remember the Berenstein bears in their childhood.  However, all of a sudden every single copy, new or old, bears the name Berenstain bears.  The physical printed letters on every single one now say Berenstain, but thousands of people swear the SAME books, which some still own from back in their childhood, spelled Berenstein when they read them as kids.  Some of these people were, as kids, voracious readers and meticulous, aware spellers, and they assert there's no way they would fail to notice or remember how it was spelled.  Some have the last name Berenstein themselves, or Stein or Steiner or even Einstein, and they say there's no way they could have forgotten their own name or not noticed it in the name of the book.  And there's literally a whole generation that either collectively experienced a glitch in the memory -- the same glitch in thousands of people -- which would be weird enough --

 

or --

the "or" is weirder. 

 

Or they changed something in the matrix,

and in the process introduced a typo

into reality.

 

Do any of you bums remember those bears from a previous timeline, before the switch?..  (Me, I don't know about the bears, but at least one switch I noticed full blast when it occurred...)

a former roomie of mine told me abt this awhile back. she also said that Interview With the Vampire was actually once

Interview With a Vampire. she mentioned a few other "glitches" too. she is convinced. idk, memory is a slippy thing.

and on the other hand if i still had mod powers, i could come back in 2 days and make a minor change in this post without evidence of the edit.

Considering the author's last name... it seems a challenging argument to suggest no 'stain' in this issue ;)

It's another thing that is asserted to have changed -- the authors' name -- when the first of them died, don't remember husband or wife, it appeared changed in the obituary.

They call it the Mandela effect, apparently.  I do remember his death lamented in the 80s in Europe.  Don't know about here.   I remember being mildly surprised and blaming my memory when he got released from prison a few years after dying there.  And now a couple of years ago he died again.  I wonder if this will change as needed too.

 

Putin died on five separate occasions, per Russian sources.

Not the magnitude involved with the bears but...

On Saturday, I went into the kitchen to make a sandwich. Got out the bread, peanut butter, honey, knife, paper towel... Oops! Was gonna use a paper towel as plate, napkin, to wipe to counter but the roll was empty. Walked down the hall to the laundry room, got a paper towel, paused on my way back to put on an R. Carlos Nakai CD.

Returned to the kitchen, got out the bread, peanut butter, honey & knife, torn a paper towel off the new roll and made myself a sammich.

As I was finishing it, it dawned on me that I had gotten everything out twice.

Hmmm...

After I finished, it started to bother me. I went back down the hall and poked my head into my 21-y-o son's room. Had he put away the makings for a sandwich? He looked at me blankly and then, after a couple seconds, said, "Ummm, yeah, I did."

Case closed... Except...

I would have passed him in the hall and the boy has never put up anything in his life without being told -- twice. Heck! He would be more likely to have left his stuff for me to put away than to have zipped from bedroom to kitchen, put stuff away and then zipped back before I came out of the laundry room.

So, I've been thinking about his for a few days now, and I've come to the conclusion that I noticed a small time loop. I needed an explanation so after the fact an explanation manifested, with my son suddenly "remembering" that he had put the stuff away

Ah, the Peanut Butter Effect!  Thanks for sharing.  Yes, yes!  Rationalizations always become available to explain things away -- and work in most cases, but not in all.

 

I remember thinking that something was very wrong with a close friend of mine when someone we both know got very ill and we were discussing it and she said, well, it's curable, YOU did get cured of it, right?  I was baffled.  I never had that illness and certainly would have noticed if I ever did, and told her so.  She then acted very surprised, angry, upset and suspicious, all kinds of strong emotions flooded her in front of my eyes, and she told me, adamantly, that she remembered in detail how I told her about the illness and the treatment.  I never did -- it never happened!! -- but there was no way in hell I could convince her!  I told he she's frightening me, she darkly hinted that she does not trust me anymore, the friendship of many years basically unraveled at that point...  I still don't know what that was all about outside of allowing for something uncanny.  My friend has superb memory and normally does not get confused for any reason...  just not her thing.  Nor mine.  Super mega weird.

I had this posted on my forum May 18 2015:

 

Scientists at Large Hadron Collider hope to make contact with PARALLEL UNIVERSE in days

The staggeringly complex LHC ‘atom smasher’ at the CERN centre in Geneva, Switzerland, will be fired up to its highest energy levels ever in a bid to detect - or even create - miniature black holes.

If successful a completely new universe will be revealed – rewriting not only the physics books but the philosophy books too.

It is even possible that gravity from our own universe may ‘leak’ into this parallel universe, scientists at the LHC say.

The experiment is sure to inflame alarmist critics of the LHC, many of whom initially warned the high energy particle collider would spell the end of our universe with the creation a black hole of its own.

But so far Geneva remains intact and comfortably outside the event horizon.

Indeed the LHC has been spectacularly successful. First scientists proved the existence of the elusive Higgs boson ‘God particle’ - a key building block of the universe - and it is seemingly well on the way to nailing ‘dark matter’ - a previously undetectable theoretical possibility that is now thought to make up the majority of matter in the universe.

But next week’s experiment is considered to be a game changer.

Mir Faizal, one of the three-strong team of physicists behind the experiment, said: “Just as many parallel sheets of paper, which are two dimensional objects [breadth and length] can exist in a third dimension [height], parallel universes can also exist in higher dimensions.

“We predict that gravity can leak into extra dimensions, and if it does, then miniature black holes can be produced at the LHC.

"Normally, when people think of the multiverse, they think of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, where every possibility is actualised.

"This cannot be tested and so it is philosophy and not science.

“This is not what we mean by parallel universes. What we mean is real universes in extra dimensions.

“As gravity can flow out of our universe into the extra dimensions, such a model can be tested by the detection of mini black holes at the LHC.

“We have calculated the energy at which we expect to detect these mini black holes in ‘gravity's rainbow’ .

“If we do detect mini black holes at this energy, then we will know that both gravity's rainbow and extra dimensions are correct."

When the LHC is fired up the energy is measured in Tera electron volts – a TeV is 1,000,000,000,000, or one trillion, electron Volts

So far, the LHC has searched for mini black holes at energy levels below 5.3 TeV.

But the latest study says this is too low.

Instead, the model predicts that black holes may form at energy levels of at least 9.5 TeV in six dimensions and 11.9 TeV in 10 dimensions.

Nice.

 

This happened to me once... I'd found the video of a female daoist practitioner who was studying in china, a very humble and poignant video that was posted on a daoist blog. I emailed it to a couple of friends. But when I looked for it again a couple years later, I could not find it online or evidence of those emails.

 

Now this could totally have been a case of the "misplaced keys," but caused me to wonder if advanced practices of higher level energy work, which in daoist arts sometimes lead one to invisible interactions, might also come to influence "online" reality as well.... perhaps by way of mental influences guiding others to 'unlink' and move away from certain elements, allowing them to slip away, forgotten. I kinda like that.

Yes. I had to study it at school for examination purposes.

 

I found it depressing and misleading. (If someone hasn't read it, there's a plot spoiler here): -
