There used to be a single timeline. The Berenstein Bears taught little Ameriburgers good, family-oriented Judeo-Christian values. Everyone felt like they had a purpose.
Then came the LHC. Once again, humanity in its arrogance had constructed a Tower of Babel to learn the secrets of God.
As punishment, God diverted our timeline from it's pre-ordained path. If humanity wanted to play God, he would let them; no longer would he guide us. We went down a much darker path; the world we thought we knew broke down. God left but one subtle hint for the most observant. The Berenstain Bears would remind that generation that, despite their idyllic childhood, they were now nothing but a STAIN on His creation.
Any other good examples of a mass memory fail that might support the parallel universe theory? I don't know how prevelant the Mandela memory is and I doubt most of us were old enough to remember him dying in prison in the 80s. The Berenstein/Berenstain thing seems pretty widesprrad among my generation, though.
>>43028945 No conspiracy, just a 'glitch in the Matrix' type thing, like the baneposting happening. A lot of people remember the name being BerenSTEIN as opposed to BerenSTAIN. The idea is that at some point in the past, our universe diverged, creating a parallel universe where the spelling changed to Berenstain, dubbed by some the A universe, as opposed to the original E universe.
Another explanation is that people don't remember the name correctly, which is much more probable.
>>43028945 just looked it up, this is retarded. Memory is extremely flawed and people's brains work surprisingly similar despite everyone thinking they're a special snowflake, so it follows that people remember the same things. As for this shit I remember there being confusion between the two but I just took it as personal preferences. Just like some people say pillow/pellow coupon/quepon
>>43028992 >>43028021 Chartreuse being a maroon type color as opposed to puke green/yellow Mandela dying in prison The Chinese protestor being run over by the tanks The location of New Zealand Jiffy peanut butter
>>43029093 What makes the most sense is that we were fucking young when we were reading them, if we were reading them at all. We hear BerenstEEn and don't give it a second thought cause we wanted to read about some fucking bears. Now we're older and have a much tighter grasp on the English language. Berenstain doesn't seem like it would be pronounced the way we heard it all those years ago so we have a wtf moment when it's brought up.
>>43029164 misremember* As far as other things go I don't remember Fidel Castro dying, but I certainly remember idiots saying "Is he even alive anymore" and thinking he's dead every year for the past 20 years. Pretty much everything on the list of misremembered things is trivial stuff like this that most people never think about but think their memory is infallible My best friend tried to convince me that I went on a vacation with him when we were younger (literally thought I was lying to confuse him and said my memory was just bad). My family was dirt poor and never went on vacations His was filthy rich and went on vacations every year with other rich friends Did he come from a universe where I went on vacation with him? or is his memory shit from all the vacations he's been on
>>43029260 No. Different company. Jiffy peanut butter was marketed from the 60's (if recalled correctly) as being able to make a sandwich "in a jiffy". Many of us recall it being called Jiffy peanut butter However, there's no historical evidence of this existing. I remember the jar as clear as a bell from when I was a kid.
>>43029380 Quite possible. Somewhere down the line (most people think in the early to mid 90's) something changed. My brother and I recall discussions and events with my parents that never occurred, according to them
>>43029517 Nope. Everyone I have asked about this around my age recalls chartreuse as maroon. I actually had an adult student of mine shout in class half jokingly, "fuck you, you're playing some joke".
>>43028021 >With the new LHC activity, this is somewhat /pol/ related Please explain to me in 500 words or less how contained, high energy particle collisions have any effect on anything. If you can't, go back to /x/. If your explanation uses physics terms improperly, you'll also be sent back to /x/.
>>43029093 >The idea is that at some point in the past, our universe diverged, creating a parallel universe where the spelling changed to Berenstain, dubbed by some the A universe, as opposed to the original E universe. I hate it when people try to bring parallel universes into this. That is not how it works. Even if these magical retcon "divergences" actually happened, then your memories would be edited too. Use your goddamn head.
>>43029594 I did as well. You start asking us old farts about it, and we all say Jiffy.
>>43029565 I'll try in really basic terms. The search for the H-B particle is a search for that which essentially breaks the universal law of matter and energy conservation. In essence, creating matter from nothingness. In our pursuit to achieve this, we are basically attempting to "become god". Of course, it could be argued that all advancement in science is thus. But for the sake of argument, it is either this pursuit, the triggering of the LHC, or some other catastrophe that has subtly caused our universe to "reset" itself
>>43029253 We remember Mandela as a hero freedom fighter, that brought equal rights to south africa - when in reality (proper arecheological research and forensics) he was a terrorist Zulu that activly called black people to arms inorder to massacere, mutilate and rape white children as a way to spread fear and destabilise western communities.
>>43029861 People recall succinctly... >Mandela dying in prison despite his being released and becoming president >Seeing on live tv the protester get crushed >They recall New Zealand being near south Africa >And JIF peanut butter clearly being called Jiffy peanut butter
Also the Berstain bears were called the Bernstein bears, and chartreuse was colored maroon rather than yellow
>>43029995 So, what you're telling me is that between these two possible explanations >Some people are just retarded or have bad memories >We all warped into an alternate dimension where nothing other than subtle details have changed the latter is more probable?
>>43029177 >The Chinese protestor being run over by the tanks woh woh, hold on, are you saying that chink didnt get run over? because thats not how i remember it going >The location of New Zealand seriously though, thats probably just confusing it with madagascar
>>43030052 This is why it belongs on /x/. People bitch all the time about 9/11 and sandy hook and the holocaust deserving to go on /x/ but those actually are 1) political in nature and 2) don't rely on crazy, paranormal shit to be true. /x/ really is a shithole that had a ton of promise and just used it to talk about 2spooky pastas and retarded theories like this.
>>43030262 most people cant accurately draw their own state or country I know for a fact you don't know the exact shape of a country you passively look at every now and again >>43030319 anon, no please
>>43029539 >alternate timelines are definitely more paranormal than political. so... what would happen if we tried talking about the book fatherland? wait.. if we made a thread about wolfenstein the new order or turning point, would v, pol, and x all implode into one new super board?
So for those curious, here is one of the prevailing theories. Bear (stein) with me, as while highly educated (working on PhD), I have had a couple of scotches.
Reality, as has been proposed by some physicists, is nothing more than a 3 dimensional image posted on a 2 dimensional plane. (1) This would account for Fermi's Paradox, dark matter and how the galaxies maintain their cohesiveness despite not having enough energy or mass to hold the together, and just basically the unimaginable vastness of creation. This, coupled with the fact that philosophers such as Descartes (2), religions such as Buddhism (3), and hell, even the Wachowski's suggest that we are simply spirits observing a display for our benefit. Think of it as being a character in a video game. To him, reality may seem perfectly fine. But ultimately there is an outside consciousness controlling that person's movements. Somewhere along the line, the game/reality has required a reset. Could be God correcting something, could be avoidance of a catastrophe, who knows. But subtle relics of that change remain behind. And people above a certain age recall events differently from before the reset.
>>43030625 That could explain why I don't recall it. I'm a '94 toddler and the only reality retcon listed in this thread that strikes home is Berenstein Bears apparently being Berenstain Bears, which could just be that language effect where the mind skips over letters in the middle and mostly looks at the first and last to read a word. For me, New Zealand's always been to the east of Australia, Mandela was freed and became President of South Africa, and I didn't even know what the fate of the Tiananmin Square protestor was until this thread made me think about it. >>43030516 Well, the asshole running out simulation/game server needs to seriously consider shielding his system against bit rot.
It happened 9/11/2001 ad in our previous timeline. There was a one in a billion frame shift in the universe at that point, causing a massive localized energy release and pushing us into a parallel universe (even the laws of physics seem a little different, we now have overunity fusion reactor technology, white males are evil, etc)
Proof? You say it to yourself every fucking day: JET FUEL CAN'T MELT STEEL BEAMS
>>43031035 Well I guess no one can dispute your extensive reasoning, erudite insight, and unavailable intellectualism. Thank you for elucidating us all. Or perhaps you should go suck a giant flaccid cock
That morning I was walking to my car to go to work and I thought "Today is a day just like every other day". It's weird. I don't recall ever having that thought before or since. It wasn't a "work is tedium" kind of thing either. It's almost like I knew something was off and I was trying to convince myself otherwise.
Not sure if this makes sense or is relevant or not but sometimes when I am driving my car I can picture in detail every possible chance / instance I have of opening my car door and jumping out of my car. I picture the short term and long term events that would take place after and with in a split second re imagine it again taking place entirely differently only a small distance away from that very instance of imagining the first thought of it happening.
I see things like this all the time in my head and can imagine the entire day and life another person can go though from getting up to finishing work.
I am not sure if other people get these thoughts too, but it seems related to this article and that somehow we're all connected in a strange way. Like we're all attached to the same string that loops around.
Like we're one person living the lives of many different people all at once and every animal is doing the same thing.
>>43030516 >Could be God correcting something, could be avoidance of a catastrophe
>in a parallel universe that has somehow interacted with ours, jews got extremely pissed about the bernstein bears and nuked the whole universe, so god had to go back in time and fix it all up so the jews wouldn't be pissed anymore
[spoiler]Or the fucking book just has differences on its name due to different regional publishers[/spoiler]
>>43031093 >le ebin jet fuel may may STEEL DOESN'T HAVE TO MELT TO LOSE A VAST MAJORITY OF ITS STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY; IN FACT, THE BURNING TEMPERATURE OF JET FUEL IS HOT ENOUGH. HOW MANY TIMES YOU DO TINFOIL FAGGOTS NEED TO BE TOLD THIS BEFORE IT WILL PENETRATE YOUR THICK SKULL?
>>43031232 You lovingly and expertly fellate and herpetic, syphallititc, black cock that comes your way. Your skills are known far and wide as a professional rim jobbing, salad tossing, backakke receiving, glazed doughnut looking titanic faggot.
I always remember it as "Berenstain Bears" (BTW: I was born in 1975) and Jif. In my memories, Mandela went on to become President of SA, and New Zealand has always been east of Australia. However, while I never saw the Tiananmen square guy get run over on tape, I did hear and see DESCRIPTIONS of him being run over. Also, does anyone else remember an accidental friendly fire incident in the 1989 Panama invasion where an F117 accidentally bombed a U.S. field hospital?
>>43031405 The jet fuel can't melt steel beam argument is actually a rip off from the actual case, namely steel beams that have been cut in a way that would be common sight when working with thermite. This paired with the reported explosions before the actual impacts rises serious doubts.
>>43031374 I have OCD (actually) and vividly remembering having to enunciate it extremely drawn out and exaggerated berenstaiiin bears (in my head) because I heard everyone say berenstein bears and it bothered me that it wasn't written like stain >>43031510 you get it Sure people remember him getting run over but no one from a news company who published the footage or anyone at the event or even a fucking tank driver has ever said "Oh I remember editing the video of him getting run over/seeing/actually running him over" Its just people who never gave any attention to it just say they remember it. If there was a point where there was a shift someone somewhere would have paid specific attention to the tape and one day they would notice its a completely different tape not just vague memories decades in the past. This theory isn't just stupid it personally angers me
Also, "definitely" used to be spelled "definately." I was an avid writer in high school and won writing awards. Someone would have called me on that one. It must have changed somewhere in the last year.
>>43028688 No, it hasn't "changed." I thought the same thing when I first saw it and figured they must have changed the spelling for some reason. But I went to my mom's house and looked at the old books from when I was a kid (she still keeps all that shit, she says their for my kids) AND THE NAME WAS CHANGING ON THE BOOKS I HAD AS A KID! It's freaky shit man. We're through the looking glass here.
>>43029384 >http://mandelaeffect.com/major-memories >Dilemma or dilemna? A lot of people seem to recall the latter (the version with an N), but — in this timestream — it looks like that was never the correct spelling.
holy shit, I went through this just two days ago. I CLEARLY remember it being spelled dilemna. I've been spelling it that way since I was a child, then two days ago my spellcheck tells me I've been spelling it wrong for years. FFFFuuuuuuuuuuuuu
There used to be a Discovery Zone nearby my house where I played as a child. In one section, there was a hallway with a low balance beam in the center, leading to a climbing wall. On the left side of the climbing wall was a knotted pull-up rope, and the right side had circular plastic cubbies to stick your hands and feet in and climb. The whole room was blue (light blue mats on the floor, dark blue climbing wall).
I was a big child, and very tall for my age. I always climbed on the right side. One time, though, I decided to climb on the left, and I grabbed the rope and made it halfway up, but then I couldn't hold on and I dropped backwards, and I briefly passed out.
When I awoke, my head was two inches away from the end of that floor-mounted balance beam. I could have turned my head and kissed it. It was precisely positioned to where, if I had fallen just an inch to the side, it would have been the perfect angle to snap my neck. I recognized as much, despite being around 7-8 at the time. I was born in 1988, which would put the incident in question around 1995-1996.
>>43033800 >mfw I never got to go to one of these as a child because they weren't educational >mfw I'm 7 and go to a birthday party at one >mfw my mom doesn't want me to go and gets mad when my dad says she's being irrational >mfw I break my arm in the first 10 minutes
>>43033800 I don't know what happened in 1995 but I think all of us did die at that year for some reason. I have a simeler story where I should have died. it involves a horse and being bucked off as a kid.
>>43034026 it could be. I think a lot of kids died in the same year. so there was some time reset to prevent a weird mass of people dieing all at once. the bombing could have just bean trigger or indication that time reset.
My friend believes that 9/11 was a mass sacrificial ritual designed to shift us all from the dimension we were in to existing in this dimension which is very similar except for minor things you wouldn't really notice like the berstain bears thing.
He believes that dimension A (where we were pre 9/11) had a future that essentially resulted in the human race devolving back to more primitive ways and eventually war and famine etc. While this dimension B (where we are now) has a future that results in transhumanism.
>timelines split at y2k >one timeline got the y2k bug(john titor timeline??) >one year later our timeline gets 9/11 >other minor tings changed, such as location of new Zealand and Mandela not dying in prison. >timelines then split again(away from Titor's timeline and our own) on 12/21/12 creating the berenSTAIN universe in which we've started to notice these changes >yesterday the universe baneposted and the LHC started briefly before shutting down, timeline status unknown.
I also "almost" drowned in a pond about a mile away from our house. It was on our land, but me and my brothers build a homeade raft out of shit from grandpa's barn (sheets of tin metal, ozarka bottles and foam etc..). I remember I fell in and was panicking because I couldnt swim, but my older brother saved me. So I thought.
>>43034435 well I'm an 87 kid maybe that's why I feel like something happened. because I was slightly older and had more complete memories. so I feel like something happened. also I don't remember a Boston bombing ever happening. I was tolled about it in high school. but that could just be me not giving a shit.
I've lived in Wisconsin all my life, and I could swear that whenever my family went on road trips in-state we would pass by Waffle Houses. We never visited them, but they were there, and I took them for granted. Years later I bring this up, and everyone corrects me that Waffle Houses have never been in Wisconsin or even anywhere in the midwest, they're a southern thing. Has anyone else witnessed this?
Could the Large Hadron Collider be sabotaging itself from the future? That's the suggestion of a couple of reasonably distinguished theoretical physicists, which has received a fresh airing in the New York Times today.
Actually, it's the Higgs boson that is doing the sabotage. Apparently, among the many singular properties of the Higgs that the LHC is meant to discover could be the ability to turn back time to stop its cover being blown.
>>43034569 didn't happen his friend finally grabs him and rushes him off I remember seeing it on tv and I've seen the original footage in the NBC news archive. I transferred a lot of that stuff from M II video tape to digital.
>>43034783 not sure, but I had a weird experience that night
>attending an 'end of the world' party >getting a little buzzed on the beach, kicking back joking about shit hitting the fan >we see headlights on the beach and think it's the cops so we all get low to avoid having to run >it's not the cops >it's just a white pickup truck with something in the back, guy gets out and checks on whatever's in the back, we see what looks like a ton of extremely neatly organized beer cans >friends joking about it, maybe it's full of c4 etc etc >guy is sitting there looking at the sky for a while before checking on the back >yells something incoherent >drives off with fury of 1,000 Dale Earnhardt >look up at sky >huge rings around the moon >couldn't stop looking, felt like some drug was taking hold(if you've ever done real mdma it felt exactly like coming up) >friends all saw it, and some felt a 'pressure on their heads' >walk around the beach a bit more, end up getting invited to a bonfire and banging a really hot chick so I forgot about the moon circles and was just happy the world didn't end and that truck guy wasnt mohammed snackbar.
tl;dr I saw rings around the moon that gave me a weird feeling on 12/21/12 anyone else?
maybe not relevant but have you noticed that when you talk/read/see/think about something it will pop up in a an hour or maybe a day?
>read about Obi-Wan Kenobi on wookiepedia >go on facebook >click on a picture in a comment section >fucking first comment is something like "Nah he looks more like Obi-Wan Kenobi" >it was a fucking baby who looked nothing like the fucker
maybe it's simply because you still have the thing fresh in your mind and notices it more clearly but i don't know, it's happening fucking often
also deja vus, not like AMAGAD THIS HAPPENED B4 LYK OMG
i've literally been able to think what the person would say next before they said it, like exact fucking words
also I probably should have died around 1995, I got into a bottle of gin and got very sick when I was young, they had to shove charcoal pills up my b-hole. also attempted to an hero in november of 2012, I went out into a snowstorm in my boxers b/c a girl broke up with me and my dad hit me for being a bitch.
Oh my god you are all dumb fucks. The reason you think it was the Berenstein is because that is the common spelling of the name but the author used Stain outside the norm probably because they didn't want to be associated with Jews which is a trick almost all Hollywood Jews do.
>>43035249 >have you noticed that when you talk/read/see/think about something it will pop up in a an hour or maybe a day? happens all the time here on /pol/ except it'll be under three seconds sometimes
>>43035477 1995 could be. I was not even a year old.
Guys listen to me. What if we are all part of a organization that in a previous life managed to master time travel and we have figured out that someone is trying to destroy this world or existance or taking control of it and so we all incarnated in this time using advanced texhnology to get things right again?
>>43028806 >As punishment, God diverted our timeline from it's pre-ordained path. If humanity wanted to play God, he would let them; no longer would he guide us. I'm cool with this. However I am not cool with him changing the names of my anthropomorphic bears, fuck you God those bears are Jews.
>>43035477 95 was a time adjustment year. time was adjusted to prevent the deaths of millions of kids. it's not just /pol/ go ask people if they had near death experience in 95. chances are they almost all did.
>>43029282 Children pass lots of shit on via cultural osmosis. Pretty much. >Some kid is bored, starts randomly drawing shit in school >Someone thinks his S looks cool and he shows them how to do it >Some kid moves and eventually it spreads to where the kid moved to
Its just fabricated memories. our brains are extremely fickle (for what evolutionary reason, I will leave that up to you). Basically when we 'remember' something, we dont remember the actual event, but our perception of it, i.e. the last time we talked about it. so its constantly changing, and can be influenced quiet easily.
In psychology class we learned there was a problem in the 80s/90s I believe where basically a whole generation of women were influenced to create false memories by therapists that they were sexually abused as children
>>43035512 another quality australian post full of insight and knowledge
if you can't think of a potential death in 1995, you can get out
as for me, i turned on the wrong burner to light a smoke, electric stove, there was a glass casserole dish on it, i came back 5 minutes later to light the smoke and as i realized i put on the wrong burner, the glass exploded, stuck into the floor, the wall, everywhere but me and i was standing directly in front of it, should've died
felt like samuel l jackson in pulp fiction after getting shot at and not taking a bullet
>>43034295 What if all those that believed in Y2k got split into the Y2k universe?
Like what if all us baneposters got split into our own universe while others split into others. We're the originals and everyone else are just images meant to fill in those that were left in a different timeline.
>>43028021 >see posts saying Berenstain and Berenstain >grew up thinking there was no second E (Bernstein) Am I going insane? My second grade teacher referred to me as a spelling and reading "prodigy" It feels silly that I could be this far off my entire life...
>>43035972 >>43035909 in all honesty the time adjustment could have been caused by the sub conscious minds of millions of kids dieing at one moment. >>43035827 I feel this is a good explanation for it. its hard to imagine any thing conscious doing it.
>>43028021 >conspiracy because some drunk and high exec wrote berenstain instead of berenstein in a letter and no one had the balls to correct so they just rolled with it >literally just a kid's show that hasn't been on in years holy shit m8. cool your autism. what's the matter? run out of jet fuel to burn?
just FYI this thread is being watched by several "elite" spies. You guys better watch out for anyone watching you irl or something. Everyone who partook in this thread is now on a red list. Bit sont be scared off from that. Find the truth guys!
>>43029177 I remember learning that the protestor had been shot then run over. I also remember my sister teaching me the pronunciation of "Berenstein" because I was younger and would call them the "bearstein bears." She was older and knew how to read, very little chance of her, and a fuckton of other people getting it wrong...
>>43036582 >so why we watching this guy jim, his radical political beliefs? him threatening people on video games? calling for a race war? ruining that cartoonists life >nein, he figured out the berenstein conspiracy
I remember when I was 7, I was playing on these metak bars and standing on them. I clearing remember slipping and the back of my head colliding with the metal bar. I remember riding my bike back home with a bleeding head with my friend and laying on the couch with ice. I've been told that I never rode on my bike, that I was dropped off by my friend's parents in their van. I don't remember blacking out though. The memory is clear as day. And if I did black out... I never woke up? The back of my head hurts now.
This is one of those things that's going to mess with your head, because unless you remember it specifically being pointed out, you'll never surely know.
Sort of related, I have vague memories of being like 5 and just waltzing downstairs when the entire family was over, completely naked and just masturbating right in front of them. I believe my punishment was so harsh I locked the memory away... But to this day I have no idea whether or not my whole family saw me fap as a child right in front of them, or if it was a dream, or just a thought that I remember...
Are there any old farts here who remember 35 years ago, PBS had several kids shows like Sesame Street, The Electric Company, 3-2-1 Contact, Zoom, etc.
Well, there was one show called The Alphabet Set. I remember it having really poor production values and it featured a man (who looked a lot like a younger version of the old guy from a much later show called Pappyland) and a lady, and a creepy clown that lived in a giant jack-in-the-box.
Am I the only one who remembers this? I can't find anything on it anywhere.
>>43033800 Holy fuck you just triggered me. I used to have vivid fucked up dreams about this place where I would crawl through an endless tunnel and I didn't know the name of this place was until now. They seemed to have all disappeared now, and I've lived all over the place and I just don't hear or see it anymore.
>>43037012 There's some shows I can't find any trace of either, can't remember specifically but I've looked for one and was unable to find it. Probably just didn't get transfered into the digital age. That sort of stuff relies on whether or not someone had a mind to upload it to youtube or write an article about it. I would check for a listing of all the shows they've ever ran or if you really want to know contact the network.
>>43031305 >>43037775 I have very vivid scenarios of serious events going on in my head, ever since i was little I can't help but feel its all been for the happening. I've felt it in my blood and bones for so long.
>>43037848 Yeah? Like apocalyptic visions or like "Damn imagine me jumping off this building or shoving this fucking lady into the street. Or what if that guy on that bike riding on that sidewalk swerved and rammed into this 45mph lane I'm driving in? Shit I'd be mortified."
