2019, CERN, and the Mandela Effect

winter-whirlpoolI’m musing about a few points. I’m interested in your thoughts about this, related to quantum research.

This was triggered by noone’s comment, linking to http://investmentwatchblog.com/scientists-admit-everything-they-know-about-physics-is-likely-wrong/

In that article, the author says, “And physicists only have two to three years before CERN shuts the LHC down for upgrades. If we haven’t found anything by then, Cliff said, it could signal the beginning of the end.” (As I read that, he means the end of this particular research effort.)

Let’s say that’s 2019. That fits the prediction of Mr. French: “… after 2019 this window closes and your pretty much stuck on the earth you vibrate with.”

It’s also a match for John D’s comment: “From what I know, 2015 and 2016 should be fairly low key with odd happenings and occurrences. However from 2017-2019 there will be quite a bit of noticeable glitches. It should again be fairly quiet in 2020. Beyond that my sources are a bit….strained I guess would be the right word.”

So, I’m wondering if much of the Mandela Effect — or our current, heightened awareness of it, at least — is related to CERN’s experiments. And, if the decisions we make right now (referring to the BI topic I linked to, yesterday) and through the end of 2018, determine which reality we’ll be “pretty much stuck on,” per Mr. French.

Quantum Computing, Simultaneous Realities, and Observers

A computer that can be counter-intuitively in two states at once… two different realities, one layered over the other with equal footholds in our world…?

It’s happening right now.  And, it may make our “alternate realities” more real, as people see it happening in verified, lab conditions.  The awareness of this affects the observer, and — with the growing input of those observations — we may be changing reality.

Here’s one announcement:

Scientists run quantum computers for 39 minutes at room temperature (Slashgear, 16 Nov 2013)

Scientists have just taken quantum computing a big leap closer to consumer viability. In a paper published in Science, it was shown that qubits–the atomic particles used in ludicrously fast quantum computers–can be made to retain their “superposed” state–that is, a state of both 1 and 0 or multiple 1′s and 0′s–for 39 minutes at room temperature… (emphasis added)

Time Travel, Per ‘Quantum Leap’

While this isn’t exactly what we’re talking about at this website, this video is useful.  It conveys a (possibly) relevant way of looking at time in a non-linear way.

Referencing different timestreams, it’s possible that — in those other realities — events in your (alternate) life are in a different sequence.

Or, as an alternate explanation of the Mandela Effect: Maybe you’re “remembering” things from the future… a future you’ve seen (in real life or dreams) due to something like Al’s time travel explanation.

Reality – Holodeck or World of Light?

Taking the Mandela Effect to the next step, what if we’re not talking about realities, but about experiences in various holodecks?  And, what if reality is a holodeck?

This video is in English, despite the initial French banter. If you take quantum science seriously and you’re interested in the idea of this being a holodeck, the juicy discussion starts at about 6:15 in this video.

If you have access to past Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes, the two involving Moriarty are Elementary, Dear Data (Season 2, Episode 3) and  Ship in a Bottle (Season 6, Episode 12).

Be forewarned: These quantum/reality concepts may offend some people, especially those working with literal Creationist beliefs.

And, when you get to the negative energy concept, around the 15:00 point where he’s talking about Dr. Richard Feynman’s theory and retrocausality, it may twist your thinking into a pretzel.

The book he’s discussing is available at Amazon, in hardcover and in Kindle.

Reality, Dream, or… Does It Matter?

If you’re interested in the many ways to explain the Mandela Effect, Dr. Fred Alan Wolf is someone to listen to, as you’re looking for answers that make sense to you.

Whether you agree with him or not, he offers some interesting observations that may be part of this puzzle.

In this excerpt from a 2010 interview, he talks about reality and dreaming. Though his most relevant dream theories start at about the 6:36 point, to understand the concepts best, watch this entire YouTube video.

(Some of those concepts are echoed in his Flatland video.)

To learn more about some of Dr. Wolf’s theories and their connection with science, see his paper, The Dreaming Universe – Q&A

And, to delve more deeply into the quantum theories related to this, see his early, simple thesis, Dreaming Universe Paper.

In addition, the following book by Dr. Wolf is fairly old (1994), but I think it’s important to explore the history of an evolving theory, to more fully understand it.  So, if you can find this book at your public library or snag a copy for a couple of dollars, it could be worthwhile… if you’re exploring the dream/reality connection from a quantum angle.

Flatland, Alternate Realities and Other Answers

alternate realitiesAlternate realities? Alternate history?

For some people, this is pure fantasy. For others, it’s scary. (I’m not sure that it should be.) For people like me, it’s an adventure.

Sure, I’ll admit that some of this makes me a little uneasy.  I’m fine with the “gooey and prickly” concepts, but if you rattle my reality more than that… well, it’s not just what’s changed. It’s wondering what else is different and I haven’t noticed it yet.

If you’re going to wander down this particular rabbit hole — and take it seriously — you’d better be prepared for some unsettling concepts.  They include alternate history and alternate realities, not as fiction but as fact.

Let’s consider the possibility that our view of reality — the one you’re taught in school — is severely limited. If we rely on our basic five senses, most people can handle the idea of two and three dimensions.

Expand it to four, five, or eleven dimensions and virtual brain freeze is likely.

Even those who work with those concepts often talk in terms of alternate realities when the fact is:  It may be reality, period. But, that’s just semantics and I’m getting ahead of myself in this discussion anyway. It’s a quirky field of study that I’ve been exploring for years.  If — at the beginning — someone had shown me what I’m writing now, I’d have said, “Okay, that person isn’t even making sense.

Before taking this discussion in interesting directions, I’d like to build a foundation.  Fortunately, people like Dr. Fred Wolf have already created entertaining ways to introduce quantum concepts.

Though that video may seem a little simplistic, it’s a fine introduction if you take these concepts to the next, logical step:  What would happen if a fourth dimension impinged on our current, three-dimensional reality?

I don’t mean “What if it’s out there, somewhere?”  I mean “What if it showed up in the basement, the next time you’re doing laundry?”  How would you interpret it?  What label would you place on it? (I’m amused that, in the video, the flatland people immediately ask if the three-dimensional interference is a ghost.)

To understand what’s going on with the Mandela Effect, it’s key to step beyond the easy answer that “it’s all fantasy.”

There is science to support the ideas of alternate history and alternate realities, and — once you get into it — it can be fascinating.
