This happens to me all the time. I hear the news of the death of a celebrity whom I'm sure died several years prior.

I just learned that there's something called "the Mandela Effect." It's named after Nelsen Mandela, the former president of South Africa.

Apparently, many people around the world believe that he did not survive his time in prison and remember seeing his funeral live on tv with thousands of mourners. In reality, he died in 2013. Before that, I remember seeing him on The Daily Show (although that in itself could be a false memory).

The Mandela effect refers to things remembered collectively that are now proven false.

One example is that the comedian Sinbad starred in a comedy film in the 80's about a genie, although I can't recall the name of the film because it never happened. But I remember seeing him dressed up as a genie and thinking that would be a funny film because I found the comedian funny.

Nope, never happened. But why do so many other people remember it too?

And the list goes on and on.

i think it has to do with humans being overwhelmed, the human mind being awash in
extraneous neon light flashing bullshit such that actual events get tangled up in the mass
recollections of 1000's of other events all making "BREAKING NEWS" or on a personal
level having some meaning that some stranger then likens to another event.

"life" has become a flashing light event most everywhere nowadays.
