1984

Have you read "1984" recently?

If you are aware of the Mandela Effect, George Orwells "1984" will strike a very familiar chord. The movies convey the idea of all history being deliberately rewritten, but the original novel does it best. It contains detailed descriptions of the government systematically changing published facts to suit it's purpose. All movie, TV, newspaper and book articles are routinely withdrawn and reprinted, leaving no physical trace of the original event apart from in the memories of those who originally encountered them. And as anyone who has read it will tell you, even those come under attack in the end.

This is very familiar to those experiencing The Mandela Effect.

The actual title of the book is "Nineteen Eighty-Four", and describes the nightmare state created as an extreme extrapolation from the Fascist/Communist governments around at the time Orwell wrote it. To preserve itself in power, the people are manipulated into believing their government is always acting in their best interests, and is omniscient, even thought neither are true. To achieve this, it must be seen to have always been correct in the past, and since it controls all records of past events, when facts change, such as a person being "vapourised" for committing a crime, all record of their life must be erased.

Philip K Dick

His description is uncanny

An amazing video of Philip K Dick - the massively influential author who's works led to Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, The Matrix and the cyberpunk movement amongst many others - has surfaced in which he describes what is being called today The Mandela Effect.

His work often focussed on stories revolving around identity. A recurring theme was for an individual to slowly realise their world is not what they thought it was, and to discover that a powerful outside force had constructed a completely believable illusion which they had been living in.

In the video he describes frequently experiencing deja vu, for which he believed was more than just a memory trick. He'd had health issues, and taken various medications for years, which some point to as contributing to these. Even so, as the saying goes: it's the message which matters, not the messenger.
