Mandela Effect

Have you been in a certain area or place and you believe you have already been there at that exact moment. Well theorist have come up with what we call the “Mandela Effect.” The Mandela Effect puts false memories into your head that aren’t actually true. The first example would be when countless people though Nelson Mandela died in jail in the 1980s but this was only the Mandela Effect. He was really released in the 1990s and died in 2013. A lot of people were proven to have false memories of him dying. “Despite some people’s claims they remember clips of his funeral on TV”. ( Academics) Another example is in Snow White where we all believe the evil step mother says to her mirror, “Mirror, mirror, on the wall.” It turns out that wasn’t what she was saying at all; she actually says, “Magic mirror on the wall.” Surprising, right? Can science explain this phenomenon? Scientist say that it's all confabulation. “Confabulation, false memory, or less often pseudomemory is a term in cognitive psychology defined as a recollection of something that never happened” (Wikipedia).
