Rich Z's BlatheringsSince SerpenCo is basically going bye-bye, topics here will turn to a more personal nature and away from anything business related.
This really makes my brain hurt. I remember some things as the "before" and others as the "after"..... :crazy03:
Yeah, memory can be a funny thing, and the older I get the funnier (in a gallows humor sort of way) it gets. For instance, I would have bet money that we have bought Jiffy brand peanut butter in the past.
And I would also have bet money that in the Forrest Gump movie that the phrase was "Life is like a box of chocolates." Connie and I have watched that movie several times and said that quote between us MANY times in various situations. But guess what?
Memory is a very imprecise mechanism. To me, the most surprising thing about this whole Mandella effect thing is that some people find the likelihood of some sort of unevidenced, indetectable, mass dimension jump being greater than misremembering. Many studies have been done that demonstrate well that our memories are mutable and unreliable. A good example is a memory study done by NYU on how well people remembered their personal experience of the attacks on September 11th, 2001. People were very confident that their memories were correct, but just over half the people in the study were correct in their memories three years later.
My wife can remember everyone who was at our wedding 45 years ago. She even remembers what gifts we received. The only thing I can remember is that we were both there. Last week she asked me if I knew how much money I spent on snakes this year and I had to admit I don't. Sometimes a good memory is a bad thing.
Yeah, it's a pretty fascinating topic that I have been looking into lately. The interesting part is that there are instances when I remember the "missing universe" view, and others where I remember the "current universe" view. And there are others that I really don't have any memory of because the topic was never one of interest to me enough to pay attention to.
Now this one really twists my brain:
I was in junior high school when Kennedy was assassinated, and I watched a LOT of stuff about it, even up to rather recently. I do NOT remember a 6 seater car at all! It was a standard automobile with a driver and passenger up front, and John and Jackie Kennedy in the back seat. Period.
So yeah, whether or not this Mendela Effect is real or not, is certainly does present some anomalies with some people's memories. Enough so that it pretty much leads you to believe that SOMETHING is going on worth looking into, if for nothing else the puzzling entertainment that it presents.
Oh yeah, I was watching some videos going into a bit about the scientific evidence of parallel universes, and that in itself is pretty interesting stuff.
