Titan Leeds

A "convincing imposter" from a 1736 Almanac?

We think of the Mandela Effect as being a recent phenomenon. This is not only for the obvious connection with the Mandela name, but also it's rise in awareness coinciding with the global growth of the internet. 

There's been growing speculation regarding the effect being much older, however. For example, there's a famous documented example from the early 1980's concerning The Stopped Clock of Bologna, along with many other early instances covered in The Origin of the Mandela Effect.

Recently, an almanac from Titan Leeds from his "good friend", the famous Benjamin Franklin, has caused quite a stir in the Mandela Effect community. It describes a story with some eerie parallels to the ones experienced today - and he published it in 1736. He predicted, in print, the date of Leeds death, and when that date passed without incident, claimed Leeds had been replaced by "a very convincing" imposter.

Nelson Mandela Malcolm X

Gave a speech to children at the end of the movie

Those experiencing the Mandela Effect which gave the phenomenon it's name, namely their memory of him dying in prison in the 1980's, must have missed an awful lot of news relating to him since.

They will swear none of this happened, which is exactly what the Mandela Effect is all about:

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.
