This week — once again, for fun — let’s try a different kind of survey. This time, it’s about location. I’m looking for geographic patterns.
Here’s what to do:
- Remember when you first realized that one of your memories didn’t match the current reality. It could be this year, last year, or even a decade ago. (This may not be where you are now. It’s where you were when you realized you weren’t “just confused” and your memory really was different.)
- Got one? Good. Now find its GPS coordinates. Enter the location in the Google Maps GPS Coordinates page.
- So far, so good! Finally, copy the latitude & longitude from that screen, and paste it into this thread as a comment. That’s it… all you need to do.
- If you’ve had multiple “ah-ha!” moments like this, it’s okay to enter all of them. The more coordinates we can work with, the better.
Here’s my example: When I first realized that my odd memory of Mandela’s death in prison wasn’t unique, I was in Atlanta, GA (USA). That conversation was in the “green room” of Dragon Con, at the Hyatt in downtown Atlanta, GA, USA.
According to Google, that’s Latitude: 33.761621 | Longitude: -84.386249 <– If I were leaving a comment, that’s the only information I’d leave.
Once we’ve collected a few dozen locations, I’ll start plotting them on a map, looking for patterns. (Specifically, I’m likely to start with ley lines, in “connect the dots” style.)
SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED. We have 61 locations to work with. A map is being constructed, right now.
