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)
If that doesn’t seem relevant to the Mandela Effect, browse Wikipedia’s summary of Many-worlds interpretation.
What if the Schrodinger’s cat concept were real, right now, in our timestream?
And, if that became an acceptable reality for more people — more observers — might that affect our world (reality, dimension, or timestream) so more “Mandela Effect” moments were observed?
I think it’s happening. We’re at the very early stages of this.
Even better, I’m seeing it in comments and emails related to this website.
How real is the multiverse? How does it explain the Mandela Effect? Will alternate realities play an increasing role in our consciousness, with each nudge in the direction of accepting these concepts? (Rhetorical questions, at the moment.)
To me, this is fascinating, and — from discussions at this website (and similar forums) to quantum computing — we may be creating a reality in which more of us not only perceive but deliberately access alternate history and outcomes.
The concept has been set loose, and headlines about quantum computing are reinforcing it. In the wild, this could change everything. That’s pretty exciting.
