    Yeah I've heard something similar to this about deja vu. There are two ways your brain can process images/events, the normal "slow" way and a faster understress/flight or fight way that helps you react fast in emergency situations. I think the idea of deja vu is that the fast way is triggered when it shouldn't or gets "short circuited" or something so essentially your brain processes the event twice, making you think it's happened before.

    Um, so I was pretty sure John Goodman was dead also and I KNOW it was the Berenstein bears..........

    My siblings and I also remember events differently. I can't remember anything specific right now but we have argued before over things as all of us have different memories of the same events. When we ask mum for clarification she often has no idea what we are talking about...

    As for de ja vu - I get it fairly regularly. I find it totally fascinating. This is a good piece on it. I saw a short video explaining it somewhere a few months ago but of course I can't find it now.

    For me, with De Ja Vu I'm pretty sure I've dreamed of the incident before it actually happens. I see a lot of stuff in my dreams that I then see in real life, so it's not far fetched for me to believe I dream of snippets of the future. That would be a whole other thread though... and I know it makes no sense, and has no science to back it up...

    But then again there is no science to back up everyone remembering Berenstein but not finding any physical evidence of it anywhere....

    I'm with you on that. I remember in high school - year 10 and I had a dream I was in a big group of kids in my year waiting to get on a bus to an excursion and a teacher who was a teacher in year 8 who had left the school was standing in front of us giving us instructions on what was going to happen on the excursion. I remember waking up thinking we don't have any excursions coming up and why was Mrs Sawyer there!?

    Surely enough about a term later there we were waiting for a bus and there was Mrs Sawyer giving is instructions....

    It was the start of me getting it quite regularly. I don't always remember it as dreams but it always feels like it was a long time in between seeing that situation and that situation happening.

    I've been thinking about this all day too, and reading all of the Mandela Effect and Glitch in the Matrix subreddits. For some reason I find this so much creepier than any horror/ghost/serial killer story I've ever read.

    It's just so random and so specific, like why the name of a series of children's books of all things? Why aren't there other examples of people confusing "ei" with "ai" in words? And why are so, so many people so sure of this??

    I'm sure I remember being confused about how to pronounce it as a child, whether it sounded like Berensteen or Berenstine, whereas Berenstain is easy to pronounce. And the biggest thing for me is that I have really strong colour-grapheme synaesthesia, I remember spelling by remembering the colour of words. Having a "a" in there completely changes the colour of the whole word, I have no idea how I could have made that mistake.

    I don't really buy into the whole time shifting explanation (though I also have no proof that it isn't true!), but this is such an incredibly odd thing for hundreds? thousands? of people to get wrong.

    I get this too! It's quite clear. I will have a dream and it feels a bit different to normal dreams then it could be weeks later and it will happen exactly the same way.

    OMG every time I see John Goodman on tv or in a movie, I say to DH, 'isn't he dead?' I still get confused between him and John Candy. I've been at work all day missing out on this intriguing thread. Gonna check out the Mandela effect tonight.

    And how could people not get sucked in by that MASH theme song? Getting tingles on my arms just thinking about it!

    I'm not NOT a MASH fan. I just don't get the love.

    Am I safe now @Mod-Nomsie?

    *whispers* I really, really don't like MASH.

    I also have this thing where there are certain events in my life that I honestly don't know if they have happened or if I dreamed it. I always thought there must be something really wrong with me. I mean, there probably still is, but now I will call it the Mandela Effect 👍
