#131 – The Mandela Effect

The League of Nerds

 

How many states are there? Did Mandela die while in jail? This and other mistakes has lead some people to believe that they are shifting through realities or are in some sort of matrix like world. Termed the Mandela effect, it is a belief that you have a remembered (or experienced) and alternative history. Naturally this could all be explained by poor memory and conformational bias but I guess believing that you are some sort of dimension hopping radical is cooler.

My name is Myles Power, and I run the educational YouTube channel, powerm1985. I spend what little free time I have sharing my love of SCIENCE! through home experiments, visiting sites of scientific interest, and angrily ranting at pseudoscience proponents. I am also one of the founding members of the podcast 'The League of Nerds' - which I co-host with James from 'The History of Infection'.
