Are We Real?

The Mandela Effect raises many questions. At one extreme, one could ask — if only for the amusement of speculation — “Are we real?”

This video, about 50 minutes long, presents some radical concepts about reality and the Creator/s. My personal reaction is a mix of intrigue and skepticism.

Nevertheless, elements of these theories could explain some aspects of the Mandela Effect.

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.
