Did we discover a new Mandela Effect? Have you ever recalled something that you thought was true, but realized that you were wrong? Yet, you keep insisting that it’s true, but in the end it’s not how you remembered it. This has been happening to millions of people around the world and it is known as the Mass Memory Discrepancy Effect, or more commonly Mandela Effect.
The term, “Mandela Effect” was first coined in 2010 by Fiona Broome. She said that she distinctly remembers hearing about Nelson Mandela’s death in prison back in the 1980s, even though that was false. Fiona discovered that there are also a bunch of other people who remembered Mandela’s “death” in the 80s. What is causing these strange discrepencies in everyone’s memory?
