With over 60 points to plot on a map, I’d hoped to see some strong patterns from our first geographic survey. Instead, while I saw a few surprises, nothing seemed conclusive at first glance.
Of course, these early map results rely on accurate reports by those who left comments, and accurate results from the mapmakers at GPS Visualizer. In addition, this is a very small sampling and doesn’t include reports from the “moving” geography sections of this site.
Here’s the world map, with one red dot per reported location from the survey:
The first goes from about 6 km WSW of Fay, France (SW of Paris) to about 220 km west of Kidal, Mali. That line is extraordinarily straight. It’s shown on the map to the right. (Click map to see it much larger.)
The second surprisingly straight, vertical line goes from a point about 15 km northeast of Surrey, near Vancouver, Canada, to several points near Santa Cruz, California (USA).
One location along that line was particularly surprising. On the map, it’s the northernmost red dot in California.
When I expanded the map to see local details, the location is slightly south of Yreka, California. (It’s pronounced “why-REEK-uh.”)
In that part of California, I’d expected to see a report or two nearer to Mt. Shasta, which has a long history of paranormal activity, including Native American lore and Frederick Spenser Oliver’s novel, A Dweller On Two Planets.
However, the line through northern California is considerably west of Mt. Shasta. That’s disappointing, but I’ve never explored Mt. Shasta to confirm its activity.
Several other lines cross the United States. On their own, they’re inconclusive.
Here’s the US-Canada Map. (Click map to see it larger.)
For me to take any of these lines seriously, I’d need more compelling evidence. Also, from my own ley line studies: when one genuinely anomalous line crosses a second one, their intersection is usually very active. With the possible exception of the X near Phoenix, Arizona, nothing seems promising… yet.
Line-by-line US/Canada Map
At a quick glance — not enough to reach reliable conclusions (so take this summary with a grain of salt) — here’s what I see:
Using dots on this map to construct a few lines, the most promising one (Line #2) passes through Arizona. Even that isn’t impressive, though it includes Portland, Las Vegas, and Phoenix, and seems to pass through Area 51. Due its the Las Vegas and Area 51 connections, I’ll explore this line further.
Line #1 includes the “hot spot” near Santa Cruz, plus Los Angeles and San Diego. I haven’t spent much time in Santa Cruz, and nothing about Los Angeles would surprise me, but San Diego has always seemed fairly benign.
Line #3 connects Denver and multiple spots in Arizona, but entirely misses some of the most legendary (anomalous) locations in South Dakota.
Line #4 (turquoise) connects several Canadian locations I’ve studied. It continues through Detroit, a somewhat turbulent city, and then approaches El Paso (TX), which no one reported. So, that line has some potential at its northernmost points, but — so far — that’s all.
Line #5 goes through Atlanta (GA), Nashville (TN), and Marshalltown (IA). I need to compare it to my ley line maps of Georgia.
Line #6 tracks through Vermont, New York City, and eastern New Jersey. Due to the density of population along much of the line, it’s difficult to separate geography from history, but I’ve studied many locations along that line; it could be useful.
At the moment, I feel that the points and lines indicate where site visitors are or have been, and that’s all.
I was hoping for clearer results.
Of course, the sampling was tiny. It’s too early to close the door on geography or even ley lines helping us understand (or even predict) the Mandela Effect.
Also, I didn’t plot all possible lines. For example, a line connecting Brussels (Belgium) to a point slightly west of Port Macquarie (Australia) might offer some insights.
I haven’t entered data from articles about “moving” geography, either.
What’s next for my geographic studies:
- Verify this world map. Make sure the locations (reported points) are correctly placed.
- Take a closer look at the two vertical lines on this early map.
- Add points from geography-related comments at this site.
- Plot additional points & lines based on the IP numbers of the first 200 (or so) people to find this website and comment at it.
- Look for additional points (on or off existing lines) that fit my ley line theories.
- Compare all lines with vile vortices and my own ley line maps.
If you’d like to study this yourself, here’s a TXT file with the latitudes and longitudes, followed by point numbers for use at GPSVisualizer.com and similar mapping sites: http://mandelaeffect.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/MEGeo61-6Jan2016.txt (You may want to check it against comments at the survey post, for typos.)
If you see data or “coincidences” I missed, or if you pursue this and uncover anything helpful, leave a comment. (Mike H., I’m especially interested in how these lines relate — or don’t — to your geography patterns.)
