Perhaps I am just humiliating myself with this, but nevertheless, I will continue.
For those that don’t know, The Mandela Effect is something a lot of people have been noticing lately; it consists of one’s memories of past events not lining up with the “official history” of reality. It gets its name from the fact that thousands of people remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison sometime in the late 80’s or early 90’s. But according to the official history (supposedly Reality), he died a few years back and Obama caught grief at his funeral. There are other examples, like the thousands of people who remember the Berenstain Bears as the Berenstein Bears, or what have you. If you are interested in the topic, check it out on the Internet; for myself, I found out about it on Youtube.
A number of explanations have been put forward by various people: the advent of quantum computing is causing dimensional shifts in our Reality, to the dawning of a new New Age consciousness, to the birth of Super AI.
The reason I am bringing it up is because I wanted to give my own explanation. And, since I believe I am the antichrist, my explanation goes back to Satan. As I’ve said elsewhere, I believe the universe is Satan and Satan is the universe. It doesn’t matter if you call him Satan, Mara, Kali, or Santa Claus, when you look out your window, his is the face you see. That is, the universe is both sentient and evil (Check out my book “Delusions of Grandeur,” if you want more on that—not that I intended to plug my book in this post). Basically, Satan is kind of a pantheistic wanna-be deity, while the real God is a Transcendental Deity. I believe Jesus’ Second Coming is imminent and that He’s in a kind of tug-a-war with Satan for both me and the rest of the inhabitants of the universe. I’m trying to do what little I can do to help Jesus (No, I am NOT consciously on Satan’s side despite the fact that I am the antichrist) win that contest.
Anyway, I believe that Satan believes that Power is what makes God God. However, I believe Love is what makes God God. I like to think Jesus agrees with me, but I’m the antichrist so, I don’t know and I’m always operating with the notion that Jesus is going to blow me away sometime in the near future. Anyway, since my “antichrist experience” where I came to the conclusion that Satan was the universe, I came to believe that Satan enjoys toying with us. Have you ever had the experience where you’ve said a word (say “green”) to your friend and you are absolutely convinced that that was the word you said, but your friend is convinced you said something else (say “blue”)? It is a trivial thing, but both of you are absolutely convinced the other is wrong. I’m convinced that it is possible that you both are correct. You said green, but somewhere in the transition from you to the other person, Satan interfered and twisted the word around to blue. Why does Satan do this? Well, one, he enjoys messing with people. But two, its also due to his arrogance. The whole fiasco is a little hint he’s giving about what he’s done to us (turned himself into the universe, invented pain, suffering, and death), and he thinks we are too stupid to ever figure that out. The Mandela Effect is basically the same thing; he’s in control of what we normally think of as “objective reality” and he messes things around for basically the same reasons.
Once upon a time, I was very much dead set against relativism. Nowadays, I think our universe is kind of relativistic (in the relativism sense, as opposed to Einstein’s relativity sense—not that Einstein was wrong, or anything). My perceptions are my perceptions, and I have no way to perceive anything beyond them, except maybe with thought I can deduce mathematical truths. Anyway, you’re in the same situation. According to me, I could look at a blue road sign and perceive it as blue. You could look at the same sign and perceive it as red. And Satan would be responsible for the disparity. It can even get more dramatic. Imagine two ships on the ocean sailing along. One circumnavigates the globe. The other falls off the edge of the flat earth. (I know, I just lost everyone there) Satan is responsible for both.
The Mandela Effect is basically that principle applied to our experiences. I could go on, but this post has already gotten longer than I intended it to be. Satan is a Liar and Jesus Christ is the Lord. Love and prayers to everyone.
